“Great Night Out”

Shunxing Old Teahouse (Shijicheng)
Ranked #31 of 3,206 Restaurants in Chengdu
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

We decided to come here for dinner and the show after reading the reviews.

The building is a huge, very nicely decorated tea house. here tripadvisor shows it on the map was correct when we went.

The show was a great example of Sichuan Opera. It cost 88yuan so it's most budget friendly than the big one. We saw dancing, solo instrument, shadow puppets, tea pouring with 1m long spouts, a comedy and face changing with fire breathing. The comedy and shadow puppets were boring but the face changing with fire breathing was fantastic, especially as we hadnt seen either before.

The dinner menu was huge! Prices ranged from small soups for 8 yuan to dishes that were 300+ yuan.

The whole roast duck was delicious. The orange rabbit was full of chopped up bones so we couldnt really eat too much (typical here). The lamb cutlets was yummy but a majority of the actual meat had been cut off and it had lots of peanut which we didn't know (one of our diners had allergies). We also had some soups which were good.

Its best to make a reservation - the phone number on tripadvisor works. When it came to paying the bill there were no problems.

Overall it was a really enjoyable night out. Our total bill for three satsified, full people was 730 yuan which we are happy with.

I went here for the show and found it fascinating. It was a good way to see Sichuan culture via music and dance and just fun things. Good for entire family.

The show at the Shungxing old teahouse is incredible. For us was a great opportunity to learn about this ancient culture.
The food are very good, but the problem is if you don`t like sichuan cousine, that is very very hot spicy.

I very enjoyed this place. My gf uncle invited us there to experience tradition Sichuan entertainment including art of Sichuan Opera. The atmosphere altogether in fabulous. Large round tables, traditional architecture and design and music. There is even a small museum which I recommend to walk through as well. There is easy parking also. This place is a must visit if you travel to Chengdu.

Located in the newer part of Chengdu (to the south), the Shunxing Old Teahouse is an exceptional place to eat; there are many options and we had a private suite for our party of 12. The food was excellent with many Sichuan delicacies and were of high quality. The service was great and the room overlooked the banquet hall and had a nice view of the stage where the entertainment would be performed. The entertainment program is similar to that of the traditional Sichuan Opera (with the changing faces). All in all, very enjoyable evening with great company, food and entertainment.
