I think this restaurant is a miracle. The food is very good and it comes remarkably quickly to your table. The sizzling chicken or beef is especially notable. There is a intriguing food shop behind the restaurant that sells a wide variety of food and cooking implements imported directly from China. The ambience is buzzy with people and the turnover of tables is steady. It's an enjoyable restaurant to observe the Harare scene.

Checked Tripadvisor to find a nice Chinese restaurant in Harare and The great Wall came up as #1. Whoever wrote the good reviews must be relatives of the owners or I had bad luck, because any amateur connoisseur of Chinese cuisine can tell you that the quality at the Great Wall is far and far below par. The ambience is okay and the service is good, but if you expect quality Chinese food, then that's not the place to go. The helpings are abundant and it is not really expensive but if you compare value for money you come up short.

We love eating at the Great Wall. It has a casual ambience, with a small play area outside for kids. The spring rolls are superb. We shared a variety of dishes including sizzling beef, pork in brown sauce, sweet and sour pork, sweet and sour chicken, spicy/chilli lamb, chow mein, garlic fried rice etc etc. Really good value and very good quality food. Definitely recommended!

I had read a review of The Great Wall before going to Harare and by pure chance we drove past the place. So at 6pm we walked in and asked for a table, trust me, this place gets busy, and later than 7pm I would suggest booking a table.
The portions are huge and top quality. We had starters that by the time they put the main course in front of us we knew we had made a mistake. The chicken chow mein alone would have fed two. The same could be said for the sweet and sour chicken. But we also had sweet and sour king prawns.
The Great Wall is located in Avondale area of Harare and is close to most of the embassies.
There is security at the gate and the walls around the place must be 10 ft tall. There is a huge secure play area outside if you are visiting with children.
The only sad thing was that did not find it sooner as we would certainly have gone back in this trip.

Had lunch with business colleagues at this restaurant located in Avondale Harare , about 10 minutes from the CBD.

The food was expertly prepared and reasonably priced. The sweet sour chicken was the best dish compared to the baby duck and the steaming beef. The rice with egg was a better starch than the rice with vegetables.

The only unfortunate thing was the insistence of the owners to use of US$ refusing South African rands.. which is legal tender in Zimbabwe.
