We made a reservation for the 7pm dinner show, but my suggestion is to arrive 15-25 minutes earlier to see the courtyard and place your food order before the show starts. We took the subway and got off at the Suzhoujie station exit A on line 10. Exit left from the station until the intersection on Suzhoujie and turn left and walk about 400m until you see a neon lit storefront and a person dressed imperial style on the street. Once you walk down the long driveway you will come across the courtyard. We did not find a single staff member who spoke English. Luckily our guide wrote down the reservation details in Chinese so I just handed the note to the host. Ordering is actually pretty easy. The waitress gives you an iPad with all the menu items and you can select English. There is a brief description with a picture and the price. You select on the iPad what you want, it goes into you cart and when you're done you can preview your cart before confirming your order. Simple, just like ordering on Amazon. Our family of 4 ordered 7 dishes flower salad, pork spare ribs, prawn, fried rice, lotus root and lily, sautéed seasonal greens and pork dumplings. The food came promptly and the highlight for us was the lotus root, flower salad and crispy fried pork spare ribs. I think our eyes were bigger than our stomachs and probably could have done with 5 dishes instead of 7.
The show consisted of a few dance numbers, a musical performance and a mask changing performance. It was entertaining but not to the level of what you would see at a dedicated theater.
Our food bill came to 675rmb. A little pricey for Beijing but we came prepared to spend a little extra for the experience.
Overall we had a good experience here, And would recommend it.

Imperial treatment, personal service, good food. Soup to nuts (incl. wine and beer) around 300 RNB PP.

Word of warning, it was difficult flagging down a taxi outside the restaurant. Not sure why. There were plenty driving by, but they wouldn't stop.

During a recent company event, we shared a dinner here. Beginning with the costume dress by both waiters and waitresses, culminating in a fan / mask dance, the entire evening was "perfect". Food served in quantities, with quality and presentation, service "at your beck and call". Is simply a MUST for a wonderful evening.

This place is really unique, the food delicious, and the environment fabulous
I was with a group of Chinese friends - not tourists - and they were also enthusiastic.
However, I was invited - so I do not now the price... which I think to be high...

the food is good, service is fine, but the reason for going here is neither of those. the restaurant is located in a beautiful garden, at night it's lit with hundrets of lampions and all the staff wear traditional clothing - it's my MUST go when i have visitors in beijing to show them what they want to see in china. i'm coming here since seven years regularly with guests and it always leaves an impression.

go for the beijing opera or other acts you can order and your business partner or date will be thrilled.
