You don't need to get there early as tables are pre assigned based on when you made your reservation! We made ours 4 months a go and had a center front table (best seating). You are greeted with a real traditional leì. It's great entertainment. Fabulous service! I don't feel the food was out of this world! Free drinks! Don't forget to bring cash for gratuity! Overall I gave 4 stars because of cost!
