Bangkok Wow Cabaret!
Nov 2019 • Friends
Very WOW for the place and the show. Also, you can take a photo with lady boy after the show (but you have to pay 40 Baht / each). We came here unexpectedly as we have a free time for 1 day. Many people recommend us to watch cabaret show in Thailand as lady boys are very pretty. So we searched for the best cabaret show in Bangkok. Finally, we choose Golden dome cabaret show and never disappointed!

Visited in Jan 2020, the show is very amazing. There are international songs in the show so I can enjoy each unique experience and costumes. Lady boys are beautiful than even a girl!

Oh dear, where do I start?

Brilliant, awful, sad, funny and depressing.

Value for money? 9/10
Quality of performance? 4/10
Location? 5/10
Golden Dome itself? 7/10

Las Vegas this is not but, as a social experience, really something.

The Golden Done is easy to get to, a short walk from the local station, although it's a scruffy area.

It has the potential to be quite grand in a sort of art deco, 1930s Beirut in its heyday sort of style.

Sadly, with many shows a day, hordes of grumpy tourists filing in and out, gas led to it being run down and rather shoddy.

We were the ethnic minority. Two pale white people in a sea of Chinese tourists. (Don't bother with VIP seats by the way. Absolutely no point and you're more likely to get hauled on stage)

The music was overloud, the lip synching extremely variable, from perfect to 'simply can't be bothered', and the four make dancers just funny.

The comedy section was funny, clearly taking the Chinese 'victim' way out of his comfort zone but much to the amusement of the audience.

Overall it seemed a sad event, with attractive young ladies trying hard but shown nervousness and uncertainty, amongst jaded older performers who I sensed despised the audience.

After the event, the performers lined up outside for photographs and what seems to be the usual arguments with tourists over money for the pictures.

The audience then jumped on their coaches to be driven off to their next scheduled events, as the next lot of coaches rolled round the corner.

Recommended? Yes, but as an 'experience' rather than quality entertainment.

Very entertaining show
Sep 2019
Apart from the 10mins auction which took place before the show which was loud and horrendous, the show is actually very entertaining and worth going especially if you have never seen ladyboy show before. The show mainly consists of singing and dancing performance play by ladyboys in gorgeous outfits.

The entire show took approximately 1 hour and and is located in a rather remote district but still accessible by BTS and a short walk. We booked on the website and the price is a good bargain and our seats are VIP seats meaning its in the front half closer to the stage.

After the show, you can take pictures with the lady boys with a nominal fee but beware of them snapping your camera, taking pictures and asking for money.

Avoid taking photos with lady boys
Jun 2019 • Friends
Theatre was quite clean with comfortable seats. Free water was provided before the show. Best to buy tickets from klook in advance (came out to be super cheap).
The show duration was approximately 45 minutes. Photo taking was strictly prohibited inside but i managed to take
some shots. It was fun to watch all the performers especially the fat lady boys trying to add humour. At the end of the show you will forced by the lady boys to take photos with them, it is best to avoid as they demand unreasonably high price for a picture. Finding taxi from there at night can be a bit troublesome.

Really Bad, we lost 700 bath, it is scam
May 2019 • Couples
The show is really bad, they are not singing, all are lip sync. Their dance are really bad. After exit, we take photo with them, we think only 40 bath as written, but they ask for 700 bath with just 2 photo with 2 lady boys. It really ruins our holiday. Do not come here!

Good but...
Dec 2018
Its was an hour show, was intertaining and funny especially with the chubby celebrity entertainers, few front performers tho are not that good, poor choreography and needed more energy and motivation. At the end of the show, performers went out and of cours youll have a selfie with them, turns out they will ask u FORCELY for money, and a minimum of hundred THB per person (whoever are in the photos) so basically... 3 of us in the picture and 2 performers so they demand us to give them 3hundred THB for each of them! i mean come on, its not all about the money but they should not be harassing people to give them money. I would suggest that they could put a tip box and a photo booth so that everyone have the chance, guests shouldnt be forced by the performers to give them money.

Had its moments but DEFINITELY WON'T BE COMING BACK.
Oct 2018 • Friends
There are good and bad things about this cabaret show. It's our first time watching, so nothing to compare with. Bought our tickets from klook (thank goodness as after seeing it I realized I'm not willing to pay more that I did). Place is quite far and secluded. Exteriors and interiors are unimpressive. There are segments that are really visually pleasing (costumes and headdresses are good) and some of the actresses taking the lead from time to time are quite good at what they do. However, you'll notice that the back up dancers/characters are not smiling, looks bored, looks like they don't want to be there.

I have several warnings:

When they say VIP tickets on klook, that's not really the case. It's not a privelege to sit in front because

If you happen to sit in front, be prepared to be the unwilling volunteer that

They will call on stage to participate. Will ask you for a kiss on the cheek, but..

Anyway. After the show ends, the lady boys will be out of the door and will spread out to catch everyone to take pictures (meet and greet but not really). THIS IS NOT FREE. 2 lady boys grabbed me and my friend. I said our ride is already waiting, but one of them who was quite tall took my phone away and handed it to a male actor who took (bad, unfocused, blurred) pictures of us. Then they asked for payments EACH. 40 Baht EACH. EVEN THE FREAKING PHOTOGRAPHER.

First of all, if you guys wanted people to want to take pictures with you, you should have performed better, that way you won't have to force people going out the door.

Second, in other countries, kissing people against their will will warrant you sexual harassment (legal) complaints no matter the circumstance.

Third, it's not nice to grab people who are unwilling then take their phone away. I almost lost my cool there.

Fourth, the GALL of that photographer. You only took a picture and asked for the same amount as the ladyboys who we took pictures with.

Fifth, if you guys at golden Dome will think of running your business better, you'd know better than to end guests' evenings with harassment and forcefully having them pay for pictures they didn't want. That way they'd actually want to get back. Save for the main actresses, the side ones needs more training/practice.

Word of advice for people who wants to visit: GO ELSEWHERE.

However, if it's too late and you already bought a ticket from wherever, at the end of the show, hide your phone. and when they grab you to take pictures with them, tell them your phone ran out of battery then leave. Pry away your hand if you have to. They are quite aggressive.

Although there are a lot of really pretty lady boys, the bad experience is not worth coming back for nor recommending to others.
