Just stopped in to try this place a couple of days ago. A 'vegetarian' Chinese food place sounded interesting to me... In general, the food is good and the service is really great but just know what you're ordering before you do. We ordered this green bean ball soup that was... strong in taste. I guess we just weren't expecting... More

This is at the top of my favorite cheap eats list. Some of the ersatz meat preparations are a bit strange (but also can be fun). Skip the seafood and go for the vegetarian selections. Moo shoo vegetable (get 6 pancakes) and potstickers are standouts.

I have loved this restaurant for ten years. They make THE BEST fake meat (the Szechuan "chicken" is my favorite). The food comes out so fast, it's always consistent & delicious, and the people who work there are nice. My only complaint is that they don't deliver--I would order SO OFTEN if delivery were an option!

My friend and I visited here after taking in an early bird movie. It was our first visit and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was not full, which was great. After viewing the menu, we decided on having the Curry Shrimp Dinner which you can add rice and soup to make it a complete dinner. There is an extra... More

We love this place! Great vegetarian Chinese food. You can either go strictly vegetables or you can have gluten "chicken, " "beef," etc. Good service, reasonable prices, pleasant atmosphere. You can sit near the window and people watch College Ave if you feel like it. Portions are large. You will probably have leftovers to take home, and that's not a... More

What an amazing value for lunch. The lunch menu (available 7 days) includes a cup of hot & sour soup, roll, rice- either brown or white- plus entree choice and tea. Vegetarian options are plentiful. Excellent service and quite the value (2 people, without tip $14)!!!

I started going to Great Wall when I worked across the street in....1989? Their lunch special was the deal of the century then and even more so now. For $6.25 veggie or $7.25 w/ seafood you get an entree, rice, soup and eggroll. It's almost like stealing, it's so well priced! The restaurant came under new ownership a couple of... More
