“Sizzling Beef at The Great Wall”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

It was a Friday and we arrived at The Great Wall restaurant early evening. As it was a bit chilly we opted to sit inside. The environment was pleasant and the atmosphere was good. The restaurant is quite spacious and has a kids play area outside.

We ordered our food and it arrived quite quickly which was impressive. The down side was that the waiter messed up one of our orders and it was such a hassle to try and change it so we had to settle for the wrong thing. Apart from that, the food was quite good. The sizzling beef as it arrives is always an interesting sight.

Overall it was a decent outing.

“Great food”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

The place really serves very good quality food and the quantities are great. It is value for money and the service is mediocre. The decor really not great and notice of am atmosphere. Just be aware that they don't take cards and that your bill is a strange thing indeed. But the food is great.

“Best Chinese Food in Harare”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

I think this restaurant is a miracle. The food is very good and it comes remarkably quickly to your table. The sizzling chicken or beef is especially notable. There is a intriguing food shop behind the restaurant that sells a wide variety of food and cooking implements imported directly from China. The ambience is buzzy with people and the turnover of tables is steady. It's an enjoyable restaurant to observe the Harare scene.

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Checked Tripadvisor to find a nice Chinese restaurant in Harare and The great Wall came up as #1. Whoever wrote the good reviews must be relatives of the owners or I had bad luck, because any amateur connoisseur of Chinese cuisine can tell you that the quality at the Great Wall is far and far below par. The ambience is okay and the service is good, but if you expect quality Chinese food, then that's not the place to go. The helpings are abundant and it is not really expensive but if you compare value for money you come up short.
