Show was excellent! What a great way to get immersed into the ancient culture of Xi'an. We did this on our first night in Xi'an and it was a great way to get acclimated. We were not crazy about the dumplings (personal preference). The dumpling restaurant does provide a wide variety of dumplings and there is something for everyone's palate. The restaurant has been around for 150 years.

A must do when in Xi'an! We had a lovely night out - delicious dinner and great show. The Tang Dynasty Show is a historical and cultural glimpse into China's past expressed through music and dance. I'd go again in a heartbeat!

We ended up with a private tour. Our driver/guide was great, the dumplings delicious, and the show fantastic! The costumes were amazing and we enjoyed the dancing. It was the perfect way to spend the evening, and the door-to-door service made it so easy.

The Tang Dynasty Show is superb and definitely worth going to. The Dumpling Banquet was good but I did not go to the one at the theatre itself.

Really good fun, the show was spectacular, and the dumpling banquet was more food that you could possibly want to eat!

The show was very interesting and the different dumplings were really good.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2010

The service was very slow, and I didn't like the dumplings. Never got a full explanation of what I ate.
