I did this tour on my final night in Beijing and it was the perfect closure. My driver arrived on time and took me to the restaurant. I was seated at my table and the driver assisted me in ordering food.

The performance was lovely. It started with fan dancers, then a mask-changing performance, more dancers, some singing, a tea ceremony. Well paced as food was delivered.

The venue has an option to try on the historical costumes, which is a thing I love to do, so I opted for this option after dinner. They brought a menu of dresses on an iPad and I was able to select the one I wanted to try on. The dress, shoes, and matching headdress were brought to my table and other tables looked on in amusement as 4 ladies dressed me in this ornate, complicated costume. The shoes were challenging to walk in, but I got the hang of it eventually. One of the ladies walked with me and took several photos around the beautiful courtyard of the restaurant, and those are some of my most cherished memories from Beijing. So much fun.

An amazing place for dinner, with very nice gardens outside. The chinese dinner was very good. We ate flowers among other delicacies... Although the show was well performed, it was a little bit too short. When leaving, we were escorted through these wonderful gardens, by a chinese girl with a lantern on his hand: Very poetical, I loved it ! Our driver, who helped us with everything, made a first-class service.

This is a dinner with a series of Chinese traditional performances. It's a nice place with indoor dining areas and outdoor dining areas. Servers wear traditional costumes.

Very enjoyable. Guide was knowledgeable and the surroundings were beautiful. Venue was the restored home of a Chinese prince. My only advice is to get tickets in thew center as the show is a little hard to see from the side


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2017

Unfortunately we missed it because we had to spend more than 4 hours to get clear of the Beijing airport
