Had a take away from here a couple of times; no-one ever seems to be eating in the restaurant (yet the Raj Tandoori a couple of doors down is heaving). Food was very reasonable though the squid was a bit big and rubbery, That apart will certainly go again....

This has always been a good reasonably priced Chinese restaurant. Considering the quality of the food and the fact that the Indian restaurant on the same parade is always crowded it is surprising that the restaurant is usually empty. We have never had a bad meal there over a period of about 15 years, however due to the low No... More

Myself and 4 other mums took our children for lunch to The Great Wall Restaurant to celebrate Chinese New year. We had a wonderful time, food was fantastic and service was 100%. We couldn't have asked for more. We were all made to feel so special and would definitely recommend a visit. Thank you to all the staff.

A pleasant experience which I would readily repeat. Every component was better than expected . We ate early and the restaurant was quiet and lacking atmosphere. It was busier by the time we left.Good vfm.

Ordered a takeaway over the 'phone from here last weekend, as the alternatives were not open for lunches. Whilst I have been here before, it has been a while. Food, change and a smile were waiting for me on arrival and, once home, we each had our fill from the choices set before us: Chilli Beef, Chicken and Cashews, Chow... More
