As Chinese buffets go, what is there to say - they kept the trays full & promptly removed empty plates from our table. The Mongolian Stir fry is the best part of this experience.

Things didn't taste fresh. There wasn't enough for the price. Maybe it was because it was delivery that made it so bad, but we will not give it another try. We will try other Chinese restaurants to see what they have to offer.

Overall I like the place. I think they could use stricter management. But I always get my food to go anyway. I love their buffet but being Horribly introvert I can't stand being around people So I never get to eat it Maybe it's because all the steroids I'm on Who knows?. Of all the Chinese restaurants in Boise I... More

The cooked dishes in the buffet are very good, but not uncommonly so. The real star of the show is the Mongolian BBQ that's in the corner. These guys have great, fresh ingredients, including large prawns. In that respect, it's a better MBBQ than the restaurants that specialize in MBBQ. No, they do not have the broad selection of sauces... More

Good selection of food & a large salad bar area. Drinks are included in the price of the buffet- very nice not to pay an extra $2. The interior could use a little help; older building and some of the ceiling seems loose. Paint could use a refresh as well. I'm not a sports fan, so the football on the... More

After driving most of the day, my family and I were tired and hungry. I looked up delivery options. I called and was laughed at when I asked for delivery to our hotel. We were staying in Nampa. The lady on the phone did not even bother to check the address with their locations. I had looked up the closest... More

Not very flavorful. Average offerings on the buffet. Service was prompt and the facility clean. Not much else to say.

This was my second time here at Great Wall Restaurant located off Overland Road. I am very glad that I came back. I had the dinner buffet at 6:00 p.m., and there was a vast selection of food that appeared to be fresh. The waitress who attended my table was friendly and always saw to it that my water glass...

I recommend ordering off the menu instead of eating the buffet, only because it sits out forever and gets chewy. The menu items are delicious and I'm set on saying that they have the best Kung Pao Chicken in town. They definitely don't short you on food!

We had gotten delivery from the Great Wall about 6 or 8 months ago and it was very good. Finally having a chance to visit in person, I was looking forward to a more (Americanized) traditional Chinese meal, but the family was distracted by the buffet and we ended up going that route. The Good: The staff was nice and... More
