“Try and find a show at a different place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Food hall style setup, where we were served dry rubber dumplings in many flavours. The show was pretty bad. Seemed like the idea was just to throw some chinese clothes and music together for some tourists. Probably also why 99% of the audience were non-chinese. Go if you need pictures for your photo album of "chinese culture".

“Below average food, average show”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

There is a reason you will not find any Chinese customers here, it's an authentic tourist trap. It feels you are getting machine-stuffed with bad dumplings. After the small complimentary drink, you can only order whole bottles. Some of the dancers do their best, but the show as a whole isn't that great either. If you have a bit of bad luck, you will be caught behind a bunch of tourists holding their camera's and pad's up to film/photograph the whole thing... Skip this.

“Tourist Trap!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This is an unfortunate example of how Chinese culture is shamefully manipulated for the purposes of making money out of tourists. The food is average to say the least; the performance is tacky and the overall atmosphere feels as though all of the foreigners have been rounded up and force-fed tasteless dumplings and equally tasteless 'culture'.

“The Show was good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We spent more than we wanted to for the show and dinner. It's defiantly a tourist spot. The food was nothing special and lacked flavor. If you have never seen a traditional show in Asia it's worth it. If you have I would pass on this show unless you can get discount tickets. It's basically a dinner theater.
