This is a step up from the little hole in the wall chinese food shack most people order from. I've dined in a few times, and it's always clean with quick service. Their delivery is also super fast. I highly suggest the fried pork dumplings - I probably order them at least once a week! Throw in some lo mein... More

Excellent servers (two women were working the night I visited) and they were very attentive and paid close attention to whatever we needed. My son and I both ate far too much, all of it good and fresh! Very reasonably priced, not too loud and very comfortable place to unwind after a day of sight seeing.

Don't let the name fool you...they have Chinese as well as wings, sandwiches, etc. Prices for a meal is cheaper than McD's and better

I read a great review of this place in a newspaper so I thought I would give it a try. We ordered 5 dishes, and they were hit or miss. I'm going to go out a limb and say that everything on the regular menu is not done well and you should waste your time. Their special menu, ma-la, is... More

Very dependable Chinese restaurant offering Szechuwan specialities. Service is efficient, but you have to ask for things like water, a glass for your beer, or sometimes even a fork. I was disappointed in the spring rolls, which were barely warm. Obviously they had been held under a heat lamp, not fried to order. But the soup, rice, and main dishes... More

Ate here twice. Once for dinner, and the second time for lunch. The first time was a disappointment, but I decided to give it another try. Mistake. Food is greasy and a culinary disaster. The service is poor. The staff are not only completely unresponsive to customers; they are glum and miserable-looking, No one really speaks or understands English. This... More

I've just made my first trip to Great Wall Szechuwan, it won't be my last. I had the shrimp with mixed vegetables lunch special ($7.95 including fried rice and one spring roll.) The shrimp were good sized, the veggies super fresh, all served in a tasty light white sauce. I also had a bowl of egg drop soup ($2.00) which... More

Very popular place, we thought we'd hit on a good one. Sorry to say, we were disappointed in the food. Sesame chicken with hard crunchy bits and unidentifiable cut of meat. Mongolian Beef dish was tasteless and meat had very strange consistency.

It is a fact we need more Chinese Restaurants in DC that are hole-in-the-wall types of family-owned take-out places...all those dashes take from the excitement. This place has two great duck dishes on their menu. I am a repeat offender and will continue to return. The food is flavorful and as fresh as you would expect. The service is attentive... More
