Perks are the selections negatives is the price. It is a lot cheaper around our area for the same Buffet. The waitstaff was very good.

Ordered online for delivery to eat during my lunch hour. Waited an entire hour for the delivery. I tried to call to check on the order but go just a beep and silence. I finally decided to drive down to the restaurant and pick up or check status. Turns out it was closed. Call first before ordering online.

This restaurant, in a converted gift shop, is neighbors with Thai and Vietnamese restaurants, and popular with locals and Bradley students. I had sweet and sour pork, served with complimentary tea. Some of the specialty items, like pineapple with pork, take an hour to prepare. Those with time on their hands should consider these.

Simple decor. This food is nothing special. My table ordered the moo goo gai pan, the Great Wall beef, Great Wall lo mein, and the Great Wall fried rice. The moo goo lacked salt and the beef dish was not spicy. The only good dish of the evening was the fried rice. It was delicious.

To be honest, I don't have many negative things to say about this establishment. It's just hard because it sits between both Thai Tyme and Thanh Linh, which are incredible--and I mean incredible--restaurants. While at Bradley, there were times that I ate at Great Wall, and I was never disappointed. The food is good, and I enjoyed what I received.

We purchased 6 different items and they all tasted bad, had a dull grey color to them and we could not eat any! Cannot figure out why this restaurant is not on the BOTTOM of the ranking list, because it should be!

First time here, just picked chop suey entree with beef pork chicken and shrimp. WOW ! All fresh ingredients with long little ears of corn, bean sprouts, green peppers, broccoli. The rice is a brown short grain variety, very delicate. The host is very congenial and has a great career story to tell. Nuffet is offered Thursday and Friday nights.... More

Great Wall has some of the best Chinese dishes in Peoria. I tend to eat here once every couple of weeks and have yet to find a dish that is not excellent, although, I must say, their Chef's Special Chicken, if ordered on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday (when the owner's father is the chef), is their absolute best. If you... More

Great Wall is a fairly standard Chinese restaurant. Older building, fairly small, very simple decor. It wasn't very busy even on a Saturday night. Given the size of the restaurant, the menu was fairly extensive, with probably a dozen or more dishes based on each of chicken, beef, pork, and shrimp, and various other items as well. The food was... More

Ray makes a fantastic host. He is always concerned with the comfort of restaurant-goers and makes an effort to satisfy any needs that may arise. The food is good if not great. All in all it is a great price for the meal and the experience. I would recommend Great Wall to anyone.
