“A restaurant Serving a fabulous buffet inside a theatre !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

The venue was awesome, a lunch buffet in a theatre where a Tang Dynasty show is performed in the evening. The entrance to the theatre/restaurant was very imposing , with a huge drum in the foyer. The buffet itself was very varied, from beef stew to sushi ! Authentic Chinese dishes were alternated with western andJapanese cuisine. There was a live counter, where home made noodles were being served. Extremely enjoyable meal, both food and ambience wise. I recommend it to anyone visiting Xian.

“Good show and ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

The food was average to good Chinese food with ice cream offered at the end which was a nice touch before the show.
The performances were stylized but good examples of the style on show. It was a good mix of light and humorous and then beautiful dances. Worth a visit if you have time time.

“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.
