“Disappointing but....”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Our group of 34 was dead-tired by the time we arrived and that's probably why at least 20 or 25 were caught napping during the show. Music was so mellow and soft it encouraged sleep. But production, choreography and especially costumes were excellent.

“Interesting food & dance”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

This is a cultural show with a meal consistent with a Tang emperor's feast - lots of different types of dumplings - pig faced ducks cauliflowers & others. Ther is then a dance performance which is said to authentic as the Tang emperor both saw & wrote. However some of the music seemed somewhat modern as well as having string backings. Having said this the show was most entertaining especially the young lady with the Chinese zither & the man with the trumpets. As a sideline we travelled to the show in a 'tutubak' - like a little box attached to a small motorcycle - frightening but exciting & much more fun than an ordinary taxi. Street travel in China is exciting!

“better than expected”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

This is a "Dinner Show" Theatre.
the musicians, costumes, and number of actors/participants are all elaborate and colorful. as part of a tour, it was entertaining and passed the evening pleasantly away.

the food was better than the usual dinner theatre food (i.e., chicken, often arrives cold, and all at once), but not as good as going to a real (upper scale) restaurant. (the furnishings were upper scale)
