The Owner Patrick is literally loved by his customers. It is always a treat to watch the interaction between Patrick and his clients. He has a relationship with all of them. This is a restaurant founded on core values and respect. The food is fantastic and the Sunday Morning Dim Sum is the event of the week. Tick off on... More

I would recomment this restaurant for dim sum. They are openning at 11:30, so make sure arrive before 12 on Sunday as it gets crowed real fast. The speef is not bad. The food is very tasty. Only one thing that I don't like is they make us pay more for refill the tea. i know it is good quality... More

We did not see specifically what we were looking for on the menu, but described what we were looking for and got exactly that. We got a carry out and I am really pleased to say they gave plastic cutlery in the bag, as the hotel that we were staying in did not supply this in the kitchen within out... More

I went to try their Sunday Dim Sum which was advertise on the local Where book. I was told their Dim Sum is the best in Halifax. I didn't try others but I would agree with the claim. Be prepare to wait for a little bit. This is obviously a very popular restaurant.

After waiting 40 mins after ordering. And watching three tables order and get their food before us we went to the manager. She was very rude to us and didn't see anything wrong with the service. Most unprofessional manager, and the only time I've ever walked out of a restaurant. I will never go back and would not recommend this... More

We went here last month with a party of 6. We were pushed off to the back room and felt like they didn't really want is there. Our server seems nice but she didn't really do much it was the owner (maybe? Or management) who took care of us and didn't do a good job. Both food and beverage service... More

Get here early as the restaurant fills up quickly after 11:30, or make a reservation. Dim sum is ordered off the menu rather than chosen off the cart, and it is excellent. Prices are higher than what we are used to paying for dim sum in the US, but the quality and freshness make each item well worth the price.

I usually get my Chinese from either Look HoHo or Jeans but because The Coast Magazine voted The Great Wall best Chinese food for 15 years in a row I thought they must be good. Nope. I called from home and asked for delivery. I called at 5:15. They told me within the hour I could expect the food. 6:15... More

My review of this Chinese restaurant , In one word its bland, you listen to the reviews and you can't wait to visit, the chicken balls you could use for tennis balls, you need a steak knife to cut them, the rest of the food not that good, this isn't the best Chinese restaurant in Halifax.
