We live very close to the Great Wall so have tried the takeaway numerous times as it smells delicious from the outside. The staff can be quite rude, I once had a member of staff hang up on me when I phoned to order. I then went across and the girl on the desk didn't smile once and seemed irritated... More

Very good village takeaway, stopped in after finishing late and found the staff member pleasant, the surrounds clean and tidy and the food was very good and reasonably priced. Service was fairly quick.

The worst meal I think I have ever had - without exaggeration! The restaurant itself is very dated and not the cleanest - the staff were pleasant on arrival however their clothes were covered in food stains.... Table dirty when we sat down! There was 3 of us dining, one of which had the set menu (starter/main/side for £9.99) the... More

The food was inedible. The staff were hopeless. We were overcharged by £16, and when we complained, it was reduced to a £14 overcharge. Drinks were multipack. Not to be sold separately. £2 a tin. Don't eat here. Promise me you won't eat here...PROMISE ME!

We went as a family (2 children, 2 adults). The restaurant is very nice and tables beautiful. The food was really nice. Hot and large portions. Our waiter was a little confused when we asked for coffee and ketchup but we understand he speaks little English. Staff friendly. We ordered the special menu (starter & main for £9.99 each) and...

Husband and I took our son for a birthday lunch here today, felt a little uncomfortable from the moment we arrived, pushy waitress and staff shouting at each other, we heard good things about here, so decided to give it a chance. Stail prawn crackers arrive while we're looking at menu, we ordered roast duck in Orange sauce and green... More

The Great Wall is a little disappointing to be honest. At times, the food is just what you would expect from your average run of the mill Chinese take away, but it is not... It is a restaurant, and for that reason, it fails to deliver. Meats are often poor cuts , being stringy and very fatty. Stick to the... More

Had a take-away and found the food to be cold and the ribs were just full of fat with no taste. Thats the 2nd time I have tried it since it opened and been disappointed both times.

Its is alright is you want to grab a quick take away, even at that it is a bit expensive. Our bill was expensive for a sit in Chinese for the quality of food we had. Possibly the worst green thai curry I have ever seen or smelt in my life, but the shredded chicken was OK. Service slow to... More
