The food has remained pretty much the same for at over 20+ years. They've added some things that people love but I stick with the same old stuff. I don't really know the names of what I eat but it's pretty much all really good. My roommate said to go to a chinese buffet called wok & grill in twin... More

If you are looking for a Chinese buffet, Great Wall is the place to go! Excellent food, good sushi, and the crab rangoon is the best! Service is really good too! Friendly staff!

We have been visiting this place since our kids were small, and now they have kids! So we don't visit as often as we once did (having kids makes a difference), but you expect specific dishes to stay the same. Not necessarily true! We just had lunch, and I actually took notes! The General's Chicken is better. They are using... More

The food was cooked fresh, it was tasty and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The buffet offered a wide selection of Chinese food. It's an all you can eat meal that includes drinks and desert.

This is the place when you have one of those "hungers", where you want something in particular, but have no idea what. And the place when you and some friends or co-workers want to get together to share a great meal. And, of course, when you and the family, kids, parents, & grandparents, want to let somebody else do the... More

I give it a three because it's pretty standard, not because it's bad. We get take it or delivery, it's always good and reliable. The people are always nice, food always ready pretty fast. It's not amazing original, it's like going to a chain you know, it's the same every time and sometimes that's just what you want.

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
