My last review of this restaurant was not a good one. We tried it again 12/13/19 and it was wonderful again. Must have changed cooks, mgmt or something but everything we ordered was very tasty. We are coming back as customers.

We have ordered from Great Wall many times in the past year. While a little pricey, I still think they are comparable to other places. Try the combinations, since they come with an egg roll and can of soda. Enough food for a hungry teenager.

We have chinese food with MIL each month. We call the order in and pick it up to take it to her place. We have done this for at least a year. The last few times the food has been different than before. Last evening...has made us decide to try to find another chinese restaurant. I agree with another review that it is expensive. We spend $60 each time for two entrees, large hot and sour soup, fried rice and wontons. Husband ate the wontons. His shrimp dish was very over done and he wouldn't eat it. Chow mein was tasteless. Egg rolls were very greasy. Very unhappy and two below par meals are enough. We won't be going back. Husband noticed a whole new cooking crew last night. We really should have taken it back but too inconvenient. We just won't go again. Sad.More

Thought we would try Great Wall Chinese Restaurant since the best Chinese Restaurant in Walkersville (Hunan Delight) closed and the other Chinese Restaurants in Walkersville are not that great. Anyway, at Great Wall, we ordered two entrees and two shrimp rolls and our bill was...over $40.00. We kept thinking that it would have been cheaper for us to go to a Chinese Buffet. However, I must admit that while expensive, the food was very hot, tasty and of good quality. We would visit there again, but not often because it's a bit expensive. Yes the owner's children were there, but not obtrusive.More

Went to get General Tsous chicken and was told one plate on a Saturday afternoon (not even dinner time) was 17.00 and change. I was floored. Not even then high dollar, white tablecloth Chinese places cost that much. I thought I had misheard, so I...asked again. And a 3rd time. Realizing that my ears were not having language barrier difficulties, I left and went next door to the Padmini's Curry Grill which was incredible! Glad that I didn't end up eating at Great Wall. Never would have found the gem next door.More

Unfortunately no matter how hard we try it's hard to find a great Chinese food around here. Great Wall has been hit or miss for us. We have picked up carry out food from here numerous times. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's so so, and...sometimes it's not good. Not sure if they change their vendors or ingredients but consistency is not their strength. As far as the review who mentions the kids running in and out of the kitchen, that's pretty standard for most Chinese carry out places and I have no problem with it. If anything the kids have always been polite and helpful when I've been in there. The owners are incredibly nice and friendly people, wish they could just get the food down pat. We haven't been back for months.More

With all the places available for Chinese food in Frederick, this is the place for the best take out. I'm not a fan of all Chinese foods, but I love the General Tso chicken combination they serve with fried rice, absolutely delicious. My wife enjoys...the chicken or beef with broccoli combos along with other menu items from time to time. The food has always been excellent. Dining is available there, but during the winter months its very cool inside the restaurant and not very comfortable to sit and eat, Other reviewers have commented on the owners children being there. I have watched these kids grow up over my years of going there. They don't bother anyone that I have ever seen and the oldest daughter helps on the register, and I've never experienced an issue with that as well. Overall, Super Good food worth trying. Also should make note that a combination order is good for two meals easy.More

Can't beat the price on the lunch specials. I get the General Tso's Chicken for only $5.95. I ususally add the wonton soup for only $0.75. You need to remember that anything under $10 is cash only which is annoying if I don't plan ahead....The food is tasty. I do echo what the previous reviewer stated about the kids running around. It's part restaurant and part daycare center. This is the main reason I always take my food to go instead of eating there.More

I went in on a Sunday afternoon to place a carry out order. While I was waiting for the food the owners young kids kept running in and out of the kitchen. One of them came out with a plate of dumplings and considering the...child's age I had to wonder about sanitation procedures. I had also ordered dumplings and could not help to wonder if they were touched by children's fingers. Another child came out with a bottled water. The kids were running freely in and out of the kitchen where I could see the food being prepared , and the girls did not have their hair pulled back. Again, I had to wonder. When I ordered my food I was told that it was fifty dollars and change. When I paid I gave sixty dollars and only got change back. I was about to ask for the receipt as the woman crumpled it up in her hand. She obviously did not want me to see it. At that point I took my food and left, I had seen enough. The crispy beef had a very sweet taste not at all spicy. The orange chicken had a very odd tasting batter around each piece of chicken and was hard as a rock. Will not be back.More

My family eats here a few times a month. I was never a fan of Chinese till I had food from here. The Chinese here is delicious. I order the General Tso chicken and my husband the General Tso shrimp. The shrimp are huge and...they don't skimp on them. My son loves the shrimp fried rice everything is cooked well and with thought. They are friendly and fast. We could easily order in town but to our family it's worth driving out if the way and going here . Definitely worth the travel and money .More
