“Theatre Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This is a fantastic theatre restaurant and was enjoyed by everyone on the night we were there. The food was a delicious, set menu. We had chicken, dumplings, mushroom consomme, prawns, beef, veggies, fried rice, Orange surprise and dim sum. The drinks included water, beer, rice wine and green tea.The service was brilliant, everyone got there meal before the show started, the staff were very organised.
The show itself was so entertaining, it is based on performances, recreated from "The Tang Dynasty", they include music played on ancient instruments, ancient dances and famous performances, all in old, beautiful, traditional costumes of The Tang Dynasty.
The venue is very well looked after and the restrooms would be amongst the best in China.

“Our guide engaged us with Tang Stories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Donna of China Odyssey Tours was awesome and she made our visit. She knew all the facts and peppered it with her dynamic sense of humor. Native of Xi'an and history major there is no one better connected.
The Tang was her favorite Dynasty and she had many stories to tell us about it.

“Part of our tour in China with Travel China Guide”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

As we review our itinerary to comment on the various attractions we visited, it is easy to see how we returned so exhausted. This was a nice way to end a very active day. It was comfortable and the dumpling dinner was interesting and more than enough to eat. No, it was not a 5 star restaurant, but the dinner was relaxing and the show was entertaining. At 70 minutes, it may have been slightly long for some men, but about the right length for most ladies. Overall we'd say it was worth going to if you visit Xi'an.
