“The worst ever!”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

OMG... do not waste your money or time! The food is terrible! The acts are poor with a lot of has-beens... my son can do magic better and he's 9! The welcome drink was watered down, drinks there after were extremely expensive 300BHT for a rum & coke in a tiny glass filled with ice... it seems they pour a little rum on top to think it's strong until you stir it... the food was SERIOUSLY TERRIBLE!!! I can't express how bad it was... seafood? What a joke... there were two tiny prawns that wouldn't come out of the shell, the rock lobster was tiny and over cooked, there were two strange, rubbery things that I assume was octopus.... the rice was acceptable. The dessert was cheap.. watermelon, a slice of dragon fruit and mango & coconut mixed in a martini glass.... awful. We kept on hoping the show would improve. The entertainers all seem to speak and understand Russian and 80% of the house... which was about 30% full were Russian. Judging by some advice it may have been good at some stage... the photographs of the acts were nothing compared to what we got. We expected a romantic table for two and ended up sharing one with another couple from Australia, who were very nice in the end. We were really disappointed, maybe our expectations were too high but we've been to many dinner theatre places and this is way below acceptable.

“Worth seeing”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

Went with my girlfriend and a couple of friends to see this last night and we definitely had a lot of fun. It is a comedy/mini circus that was quite good. The comedy routine is aimed more at the russian market so we did not really get that part but the acrobatics, juggling, etc where all great and well worth seeing. Having said that we got discounted tickets online (groupon style website here in Thailand) so it only cost us 1,000 baht a head. Food was fantastic, every course was great.

“50th Birthday”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

I was looking to find a venue to celebrate my wifes 50th birthday with a family group with ages ranging from 9 to 50 and stumbled accross Palazzo on Tripadvisor. I had read some mixed reviews however our experience was really great starting from the booking process, welcome drinks prior to the show, the meals and quality of the food, the entertainment which was nothing short of amazing, the audience participation and the kind gesture of a bunch of flowers for my wife in recognition of her night. The price was on the high side by Thailand standards however still very reasonable considering the quality of both the food and entertaintment and approx 50% of what you would pay in Sydney for a comparable event. Everyone was entertained and thoroughly enjoyed the night out which is quite a feat considering the age span in our group.

“Worst night in Phuket”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

If you are Russian you'll be alright here. This is run by Russians and really only catered for Russians. Most of the dialogue during the show is russian. Food was ordinary. We were bored and could not wait for it to be over. The show was very basic. A bit of not so funny comedy, some rope, some dance. Very very very over priced. Would definitely not recommend.
