We chose this place based on reviews here on tripadvisor. It is an unusual place. The decor is a bit tired and it's quite busy on the takeaway front so being as it's open plan it's not great from an eating in prospective. The english lady on the front line was very nice and does a good job running around... More

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.

Never disappointed in the quality of the food or the service. My favourite Chinese in the town, needs to be busier!

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

Unable to eat more than a few mouthfuls before wanting to throw up. I do feel sorry for them as there very friendly. I never see any one eating in the... More

This is an excellent Chinese restaurant with a large menu which includes Cantonese, Japanese and Thai. The food has always been excellent, and I enjoy trying different dishes, of which there are so many to choose from. We also enjoy take-aways from the Great Wall, which always includes the amazong spare ribs.
