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.
