The best Chinese food I've ever eaten. Went there with my daughter the server, food, and everything was awesome! Can not hardly wait to go back.

First, our party consisted of one lady born in China that has lived in NC for the past seven years and her seven year-old son, and my 18 year-old daughter and myself (two US citizens whose ancestors arrived on this continent in the 1600's). The...atmosphere was very nice. We all enjoyed our meals. The portions were huge and tasted great. Honestly, two people could eat one meal and feel full. The waiter was fantastic. He was friendly, efficient, and a genuinely nice and friendly, even my daughter commented on how great he was. I bet our glassed never got much below half-full. He also kidded around with us, but in a nice, professional manner. My daughter and I had never been before, before our dinner companions had. The food tasted great to all of us, and I would definitely go back.More

I was very disappointed in our visit to Great Wall of China on Saturday evening. I have been going there for years and chose this spot for Saturday evening due to the fact that they have consistently good food and also the fact that they...offered a coupon in the GoPlaySave coupon book. Due to Covid, I have found myself on an extra tight budget as I feel sure many people have. Great Wall has a new menu with higher prices, which I get as everyone is trying to do their best to survive this pandemic economically. I was there with 4 other friends and was told that they would not honor the GoPlaySave coupon on the weekends. Being as I was there with 4 others, I could not simply leave. They are the ones that put out the coupon and feel they should have honored it accordingly. I am a part of a group that goes out to eat every Thursday evening for the past 27 years. I am pretty much the one that decides where we go and in the past have chosen to take a very large party to their location at least once every 2 months. Guess what, that is not going to be happening anymore. Sorry, but this left a very bad taste in my mouth and I will not be going back, nor will it be one of the spots I chose for our Thursday night dinner group.More

We ordered take out last night on line we were told a 45-60 min wait it took 90 minutes but 'that's not really my issue. When we went in to pay we were then told they were not taking the coupons that they themselves sent...out, now I understand that some restaurants are under duress, BUT not this one , they had people lined outside and had so much business they had to stop taking orders, so no empathy for some customers that might be going through hard times.(GREEDY). We asked for extra mustard 3 times when we opened our bag we had 4 packs of mustard and 20 packs of soy and duck that we didn't even want.(no attention to requests) And the food was horrible! our Spare Ribs were overcooked and dry no sauce at all, our fried rice was dry and stale and my Generals Chicken had no other ingredients but chicken! no broccoli or anything! We used to go there regularly but the quality and attitude has devolved to he point that this was our last time.More

The egg roll was skinny. The wrapping was in greater proportion than the filling. Overall the food wasn't too salty nor oily. In fact of the four entrees we had, none were swimming in oil. When I went to pick up the order they made...a big deal about the buns. Not very gracious, in view of the fact it was their mistake in how it's presented in the menu. Minor thing, but they could have been more diplomatic about it.... Then again typical chinese takeout customer service.More

New menu with higher prices but still same great quality. New chef & new items for more adventurous. My budget will keep me going for limited lunch menu, smaller servings at lower prices. Highly recommend.

Excellent authentic Chinese food for the past 25+ years! This place hasn’t changed since I was a kid. I went to the old neighborhood to visit some family and we decided to call in a pickup order to the best Chinese food in the area!...I called in the order and they read it back to me without any complication. I waited about 35 minutes because we had a big order..no worries. I was pleasantly greeted by Amy when I came to pick up the order! Same beautiful fish tank and of course the Great Wall picture on the inside wall! All the food was very well prepared hot and fresh! The Eggplant in garlic sauce my wife ordered was delicious. So was the vegetable fried rice and sesame chicken! My father got the beef and broccoli. Along with egg drop soup! No matter what you order for lunch or dinner you can’t go wrong, everything was perfect! Thank you to Amy and all the employees of the Great Wall of China South that keep everything hot, fresh, and delicious!More

We had a group of friends come visit during the holiday season, & we all went to the Great Wall for dinner. Great food! Great service! Great Wall has a nice large round table in the back area that we like to sit @ with...a large group of people... The table has a large Lazy Susan that makes it easy to share family style food dishes.More

Walked in to a completely empty restaurant except for the folks who worked there. I thought it was strange but just blew it off thinking there would be more folks arriving later. The chicken lettuce wraps we ordered were decent, nothing great about them. The...waitress was very nice. I ordered garlic chicken and my kid ordered orange chicken. The orange chicken looked decent and wasn’t too bad. My garlic chicken tastes weird. The sauce and veggies that were in and on it were tasty but the chicken didn’t have the consistency of real chicken. It had no real texture, was softer than bread, melted with one bite, and had a funky taste to it. It was clear that this was a seriously processed meat PRODUCT. Ewwww. I told the waitress and she brought her “manager” over. As soon as he opened his mouth, he had a major attitude. “So you don’t like your food” he said in a snarky tone. I then said, “This chicken tastes funny, it’s not real chicken or something, the texture isn’t consistent with real chicken” He was visibly pissed then asked if he could remove the plate. He then said, “Do you mind if I taste it?” I said, “Go ahead”. He then stuck his fingers in the plate, grabbed a piece and shoved it in his mouth. As he was chewing he said, “You know, I had chicken from here earlier today with no problems” Looks like his taste buds suck! Then he said after swallowing it, he begrudgingly said that the chicken was a bit SOFT and he would remove it from my bill. The waitress came back over to offer me a different dish but I declined and just asked for my bill. This place will never get on track if they continue to purchase “pretend chicken” and try to pass it off as the real thing. The “manager” need to be retrained or terminated. I saw they have a groupon to eat at their restaurant.....because they need business. I have it two stars because the waitress was so nice. I wonder what is keeping people out of their restaurant?? Bad food? Bad management? The fish stinks from the head down. Don’t eat here.More

I have been dining here for probably 30 years. This used to be what I categorized as a slight upper scale Chinese restautant. They used to change table clothes after each diner and had a more classier atmosphere. Today, it is more modern and almost...like fast food with higher prices. Over the last 10 years as well, the food has been hit or miss.More

I was really looking forward to trying this restaurant. I was really hoping it would be good. No such luck! We ordered General Tso Chicken, Garlic Beef and additional stir-fried vegetable entrees. They all taste the same. Dark brown sauce with too much corn starch...and no spices. Garlic was not in the beef. Chicken should be a little sweet with a small kick of heat in a light sauce. I specifically asked to make it Szechuan level of spicy. What we got was 3 entrees that were so gummy and bland. I look for pieces of garlic and ginger and found none. When I can make better stir fry at home using fresh spices that have a dramatic distinction between each dish, you know it's not a place you want to eat. Nothing authentic or Chinese about this food. Very poor experience and totaI waste of money. Sad, as I was really rooting for them. ;-(More

Ask the staff for the menu in Chinese, tell them what you like, and ask for recommendations. We have ventured off the main menu several times, prefer the more authentic dishes - but you must like "spicy" to go this route. Food is always great,...and at their prices, easily qualifies as affordable "comfort food." Dine there at least twice a month. As you get to know the staff, and they you, it becomes more like dining with family than going to a restaurant.More
