We eat at the restaurant on a regular basis. Food is consistently tasty and the staff always pleasant. Maria the waitress is very friendly and efficient .I would recommend that the murial (Pictures of Fish) at the back of the restaurant gets redone as it is peeling off the wall. Bit of an eye sore. All else good.

The vegetarian offering was sad and tired with what tasted like old vegetables. I would rather drive to Ezulwini Cnr Plaza for the food at Luxy. Better value for money and tastes awesome.

The portions are huge and the prices are very reasonable. The setting looks a bit run down, but the friendly service and the tasty huge meals make up for it. It is set in the Gables shopping centre nestled between South African franchise restaurants. I would skip any of those franchise restaurants and go directly to The Great Taipei for... More

Restaurant was pretty empty when I visited, with three or four tables occupied. I decided to have a chicken noodles. Portion size is OK but the food was so oily and greasy that was not nice to eat. You can find better chineses around.

I enjoyed tasting different treats as specified in their set menu. Must try the teppanyaki steak-its to die for. Among other great food. Its a must do in Ezulwini.

The statues either side of the entrance to The Great Taipei would have you believe you were entering a rather grand restaurant.... sadly this was not the case. The place has an almost cafeteria feel and look to it and the food reflected the look. The dining room was predominantly green, green table clothes, green painted bamboo on the walls... More

I’m not fluent in Mandarin, but I do know that Taipei means ‘wait’. I have visited the ‘Great Wait’ for a long time (admittedly a lot more before another Chinese restaurant opened in Ezulwini) and it has always had the same issue. The restaurant is stale and lifeless so I have always ordered takeaway, it’s also a bit depressing to... More

We visited after the cinema and were sadly unimpressed. Perhaps not their best night, but not recommended by our party.
