This restaurant was across the street from the Hotel Abrego where I stayed on a recent excursion to Monterey. After traveling and then checking in, I was not in the mood to drive around to find a restaurant so I crossed my fingers and hoped that the Great Wall would turn out to be at least OK. It did. The...

This is average Chinese/American food. Not really bad, but not particularly great. If you are into sweet and sour, chow mein, fried rice or moo shoo this is your place. The service is prompt and the food is fresh. Monterey is really in need of a great, authentic Chinese restaurant though.

We stopped in here at the spur of the moment for a late light dinner, then realized they were 15 minutes to closing time. They were welcoming and gracious anyway, and we grabbed some fried rice and that's all. It was good but needed some spice. Overall, I would go back here again.

Ordered in some food while staying in Monterey. Unfortunately the food we got was not particularly good, very average. The food did arrive quickly. I was just sorry that it didn't have much flavour.

We would call and order to be picked up. The staff are friendly and they are always so good with their timing on when to pick up the food. The food portion is a ton as well and so yummy! We love their walnut chicken, sweet and sour chicken and kung pao chicken with fried rice. Don't miss out if... More

We went here for dinner after a movie. The food was very good (we had combo plates), along with excellent and friendly service. We'll be back here.

Excellent menu with lots of choice, including early evening combination meals at happy hour prices. Well priced and drinks were OK too. Husband recommends the Mongolian Beef.

Excellent Chinese food. Huge menu. Right across the street from Hotel Abrego. The only issue is service is very slow. You will wait quite awhile to get your meal.

Coming back to Monterey and looking for a good Chinese restaurant, we selected this one. Is it good? Hum, we may say so. We liked our spare-rib dosh and the hot “stone” tofu pot described in the menu (though its’ actually a metal pot). We also like our waitress, smiling, polite, and professional. We were not provided with an itemized... More
