After hearing several people rave about The Great Wall, I had to give it a shot. The building itself is nothing special with a smell that is a little musty and in desperate need of a coat of paint. The staff was very nice and helpful though. For starters we ordered some of their homemade cheese wontons which were pretty much amazing. They were cooked perfectly and the cheese inside was flawlessly creamy. They had a sweet orange sauce which complimented the taste of the crispy shell with the creaminess of the cheese.
I ordered the Szechwan Shrimp, which was good but by no means fabulous. It wasn’t as spicy and flavorful as I prefer. One of my guests had General Tso’s Chicken which was wonderful. It too could have had more heat but had a very good flavor and was unanimously voted the best dish at the table. My last guest had the orange Chicken. It had a good flavor but was a bit on the bland side. After visiting with the waiter we realized we should have ordered everything extra hot. It was definitely worth the trip however next time we are going to make sure to ask for things extra hot and probably just take it to go.
