“Not What It Used To Be”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

This use to be the absolute best Asian food restaurant east of China Town. Not any more. It is average at best. We used to travel from Louisville Kentucky to come here but I would not travel across town to eat here now. This used to be our favorite place to eat but not any longer. The food is average at best. I don't know what happened to this place but it is no where near what it used to be. If you want average Asian food eat here, it is no better than buffet. If you want good Asian food, go some place else. We were complete disappointed. What happened?

“Great Chinese! Great Service! Nice atmosphere:)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

I always eat the great wall combo, its always fresh and delicious! The service is fast, friendly.The hot and sour soup is a little too spicy for me.The owner goes out of her way to make your dining experience enjoyable.If anything is not right, she will make it right.The interior is very nice, kinda feels like your in china town.Its kind of off the beaten path, but well worth putting it in your GPS and finding it.

“Everything Is ALWAYS Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2006

In my opinion, The Great Wall has the best Chinese food in Birmingham. I've never had anything bad there, and the service is way above average. Egg rolls are fantastic. Personal favorites are Mongolian Chicken and Sesame Chicken.
