“This place doesn't deserve much praise.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Food: Rubbery, dry and uninspiring dumplings. Rude service. Very overpriced beers (that you have to beg for).

Performance: well rehearsed, but not suited to a western standard of good entertainment. If you're expecting to be blown away, best avoid. Lots of dancing in cheap (and stained) costumes.

I can't complain too much as his was included on a tour. but this definitely doesn't deserve to be rated as a best restaurant of Xian!

“Think Vegas, in China”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

yeap, over the head theatrics, but none the less a well rehearsed and acted opera. It was alright really, but not something I'd personally enjoy. As for the dumpling fest, I wrote a review on that on another page, but in a nutshell, I would give that 0 stars if the website allowed.

“Traditional Chinese Opera”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

This is a traditional Chinese Opera depicting the Tang Dynasty with a dumpling dinner before the show. Food was OK. It looked better than it tasted. I did not like the fact that the large tour buses would come in to see the show and had reserved seats when we actually there earlier, dined and spent more money and got worst seats. It should be first come first pick seat! Dining was rushed and was mass produced food, although it did have a good presentation, the dumplings were dry and over cooked. Show was entertaining. To see it once was enough.

“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".
