“Ladyboy Glitz.”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

No visit to Phuket is complete without the mandatory visit to the Cabaret shows of either Aphrodite or Simon. The shows are somewhat mirror images of each other but the former is the more modern venue and has a boutique beer bar. Whilst the show is aimed at mixed cultures the glitz, music and costumes are first rate and the entertainment value is a good precursor to visiting Bangla Road to finish the evening. Some the song selections have been reviewed with new additions since last year. The show is sound quality that slots well into the holiday atmosphere and most of the Ladyboys are a great view albeit too good to be true !! For those who want an up close and personal and are keen to have their hand placed on a fake boob and a picture taken the fee is 100 baht in front of the venue after the show.

“Amazing Costumes and Lightshow.”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed this cabaret in Phuket Town. The whole show was a delight to the eyes and ears, the costumes were elaborate, sparkling and way out there. The fact that the songs (although mimed) were directed to the different nationalities made the show connect with the audience. This show is labelled as a ladyboy show and the guys were incredibly beautiful. We did not see the Simon Cabaret but we found this show was well worth seeing. A night of fun and entertainment. I did not really understand the VIP seats, they are at the back of the theatre. My only complaint relates to the constant stream of late-comers walking in front of us and blocking the view, but hey, they might have been held up by traffic.

“Not worth it”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

Went to Aphrodite with friends. Had been the previous year and it was a really good night. Very disappointing this time. The whole show was aimed at the large Chinese & Russian audience so found it really boring. Was only a couple of songs done in English, and they weren't that good anyway. I was expecting beautiful ladyboys and great entertainment again but most of the dancers looked like they all wanted to go home - maybe they were bored too.

“Best show in Phuket”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

The price is good. The show is fresh and vibrant. The ladyboys are unbelievable. Compared to the tired worn down Simon Cabaret, this show stands out wrt the show itself, the venue, the price.
