I came here with a high expectation but it didn't do the justice. The chicken with mixed vegetables was tasteless; I had to add pickles so that i can eat with the steam rice. The sizzling prawns was ok, not great either. However I must say the service was very quick. Overall it wasn't great and I don't think I... More

Don't be fooled by the location indicated on Trip Advisor. The Great Wall Restaurant is in Bibi Titi Street near the city center. Apparently there is a Great Wall Hotel in Msasani, which does have a restaurant, but there is no connection I am aware of. A colleague of mine who used to host delegations of Chinese textile and garment... More

Beautiful place with excellent food, All the food we ordered was very nicely prepared and served, and quite fast, They have to train the waiters a bit more before puting them on the serving roster, it takes ages to get a right drink, an on at that note I must say I was really disappointed, getting a right bottle of...

This is the first Chinese restaurant that had delayed our food for over an hour! The waiters are clueless, had to order a drink three times to get it right. Otherwise great food.

Have been going to The Great Wall (One in town next to Maktaba complex) And each time i have left with my tummy full and a memorable experience. The portions are big and selection of food and drinks are extensive. Waiters also have full knowledge of each dish and service is excellent. Would recommend families, friends and Business men/women to... More

Very bright lighting and rather empty when we went. Lots of Chinese there though which I always think is a good sign. My dish was excellent (sweet & sour prawns) but my husband's was not good (chill chicken).

We are living in Dar for a year. A very strong hankering for dim sum lead us to the Great Wall. Walking into the restaurant around noon, on a Sunday, had us worried when there were no other customers. But the menu had the usual dim sum offerings and once the dishes arrived, and we tasted the food, and the... More
