We had the deluxe "family combo" meal for 2. The variety was good. The food very tasty. The quantity was so ample we took home what didn't finish at the table. The decor was pleasant. The background music was soothing and soft enough to allow intimate conversation.

Always delighted with a meal here. Chef is marvelous, prices moderate. Mix your favorite with a new dish. The prawns with walnut are terrific.

Came on a very busy Mothers Day and did not have to wait long. Service at the table was spotty but we put it down to not enough staff for a busy holiday. Food was good - hot and delicious. They lost a mark for the tea. The teapots are too big for the one bag they give you and... More

I've been coming here since I was 6 years old. I usually get the Peking spare ribs, chicken fried rice, chicken salad and/or mushu pork. The owners are wonderful, the food is so incredibly good. It's in a pretty weird location so not many people know it's there, but this is the best Chinese food ever. Don't waste your time... More

We have been dining at Great Wall for years, since they opened in Lafayette. Wonderful Chinese food in a warm atmosphere with very reasonable prices. Family operated the servers know the patrons and are personable. Every visit has been marvelous, but our visit in February seemed special. Jimmy, our server, remembers our nine year old grandson by name and asked... More

We have lived here for quite some time and finally tried this restaurant last night. What a wonderful surprise. Pleasant servers, nice, elegant place with a button at your table to summon the waiter. We had the Hot and Spicy Eggplant, Vegetable Chow Mein, Brown rice and Seafood Delight. All were excellent. The eggplant was perfectly cooked to melt-in-your-mouth tenderness... More

The only reason we don't go here every time is that my husband likes another Chinese restaurant's wine list. If no husband, this is where you'll find my family. Quiet. Attentive staff. Lunch specials are perfect.

Hi gang, We ate here for a birthday dinner having previously visited some 5 yrs earlier. Restaurant decor was comfortable, menu basically like all others. Prices were fair. Started out with Egg Rolls (4) which they cut in half to look more numerous on the plate, tasted like any egg roll you've ever ordered. Asked for sizzling rice soup which... More

I went to lunch here today with a colleague I have seen recently. Nice to catch up. I had the Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings with the Chow Mein. My colleague had a spicy Prawn dish with Fried Rice. The corn chowder-ish soup was quite good, as was the egg roll. Had to ask for the hot mustard. It was... More
