We ordered takeout for a family gathering and were so pleased with the results. The food was so fresh, still hot and very delicious. We would definitely order from this establishment again. It made the birthday celebration complete. Thanks so much

Ordered takeout chow mein, ginger beef, and chicken fried rice. Loved it! Awesome portion sizes to split between two people and everything tasted fresh. Will be back!

Sweet and sour balls were hard and the chicken dry and stale. Soo Guy was sour to taste and hateful. Chow mien was all onions... More

Stopped in for a late evening snack enroute back from Peggy's Cove and to hotel. Had the Noodle soup dish was pretty good with lots of ingredients in it, like shrimps, squid, chinese greens, BBQ pork in a nice broth. The price is a little high though. They seem to have a good selection on the menu. Did not get... More

the place is dark and dated, and if you look closely, none too clean. the Dim Sum was appalling. Yes, they do make good beef and broccoli........but you get just as good elsewhere. I don't encourage anyone to eat there.

Never expected to be back in Halifax again a year later but here I was. Had an absolute horrible experience at a Chinese place in Dartmouth and really needed to have some good fast food at a place I was familiar with. Thank you Great Wall for good food and a pleasant dining experience. Staff, owner and food .... were... More

The Good: The service was good and the owner or manager was very friendly. Food arrived promptly and was nice and hot. The egg roll was one of the nicest I have had. The Okay: I ordered a combo from the lunch menu and this was perhaps a mistake. Combo plates are rarely amazing. This was textbook generic North American... More

Went for Dimsum, selection and quality inferior to a bigger city like Toronto but nice that the option is there. Only Sunday's until 3 though.

This was our last night in Halifax and wanted to have a good Chinese meal. We were sadly disappointed by the Great Wall. We ordered a dinner for two as recommended by the menu. The spring rolls were over cooked and unappetising as if they had been cooked much earlier. The dough on the sweet and sour chicken was too... More
