Downtown Chinese

We frequently order food to go from here, and it's always ready when I get there. The portions are generous. The food is very good. Kung Pao and Szechuan are especially good.

Too expensive for Chinese food and not as good as many other restaurants where we've eaten. I love egg drop soup but not their version. Portion size okay if you like the food.

Upon getting home the pot stickers were like ROCKS and the baseball sized egg foo young were hideous. I get egg foo young at many places and have never seen BALLS of egg....dry... More

I wish this place was better. It's expensive and the food isn't any better then what you can buy from the freezer section at the grocery store. Very disappointing.

The restaurant itself leaves a lot to be desired and the owner-well, just hope you catch her on a good day. Of the 3 timers eat in and the two take out orders-we have overpaid 5 times. She charges what she wants to not by what the menu says. It seems to depend on the day and time of day... More

Even though this is the only Chinese food restaurant in town, I think you'll agree that it's one of the better one's you've eaten at!

Very good chinese food. We had 3 different items on the menu - all were very good. Large portions. A little expensive but reasonable, about $10-$13 per entree. Very quick service.

It's Chinese food at its most ordinary. Service somewhat brusque but quick. Could have been any of several thousand average Chinese restaurants. Not cheap. No brown rice.

I normally avoid Chinese food as a matter of course...I simple rarely like it...at least how it is served quite often in this country. I do make exceptions, though. The Great Wall is one of those. This was REALLY good...especially for Chinese. Again...I am neither an expert nor a big fan of the cuisine. I had the pork with scallions...it... More
