I sometimes think only locals know this place, because if you do not know where it is, you will surely miss it. The food in there is good, not great, almost exactly average for any Chinese food you ever had.

You'll find a nice selection of dishes, with great flavor and spice. Several vegetarian options are available. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Prices are very reasonable. Location is great for a nice walk around downtown afterwards. You really can't go wrong here!

This was an excellent spot for a business lunch. It was not too noisy, the service was spectacular and the food was delicious. They have a very large selection of dishes to satisfy most pallets. I recommend this for business, family and couples meals.

We had dinner at the Great Wall Restaurant after our visit at the Discovery Centre. Most dishes were competently prepared, but the Chinese broccoli we had was tough to eat. Perhaps it was the lighting but the dining room felt gloomy.

We got takeout for supper on father's day. It was the first time eating from here but it was delicious. The best Chinese food we have eaten in a long time. Everything was fresh. Would definitely recommend this place.
