The neighborhood here isn't all that fancy, but I'd say it's worth going out of your way for it you want the older grand-style Chinese restaurant. The dining area is larger than what the parking lot leads you to believe. So if the small parking lot in front is full, park in front of the closed business next door, which essentially could be the same parking lot. Please do not think the restaurant is over-crowded/full just because their own lot is full, so be sure to go in and check. Decor is old grand style, very busy with lots of stuff, including a large Buddha statue. Tabletops are glass over the old style Zodiac place mats over a tablecloth. They offer carry-out and dine-in, no buffet. Very large menu, with the "per person" group dinners, and entrees. Beer, wine, and liquor are served. There was at least one of those large round tables with the lazy-susan in the middle. The men's room didn't quite live up to the decor up front, but they were very busy, so I cut them some slack in the rating. Food is served on a serving plate, not the plate you eat off of, with large serving spoons, to facilitate sharing. Rice came in a separate covered stainless steel bowl. Portion size seemed large. The fried rice seemed Southern China/Cantonese/Hong Kong style. I had the black (sh!take) mushrooms and vegetables entree. It was served over a ring of thin orange slices. Delicious. I ate most of the orange slices. The vegetables were very fresh, and cooked with just the right amount of crispness left in them. The fortune cookie was also served with a couple of fresh orange slices. Hostess and waitress were very professional, efficient and quick. A couple of the waitresses were really cute. Soda and water glasses refilled at just the right times. Papa-san worked the dining room talking to customers, and helped bus tables.
First time visiting this restaurant and the experience was wonderful. Our visit to the restaurant was notable because of the clean establishment and exceptionally friendly service. Our take out order of over 7 different entrees was completed in a timely manner, and the lady who was taking care of our order threw in a few specials (like soups and an entire order of General Tso's), that we didn't even know about, for free! When we got home and opened our dishes we were incredibly impressed! The food was hot and obviously prepared fresh! The fried rice was cooked well and did not have that strange oily taste that is sometimes accompanied with this dish. The chicken was juicy and actually tasted like chicken, the beef and broccoli was tender with fresh steamed broccoli, and the shrimp dishes featured large, perfectly cooked shrimp. No strange, chewy, "mystery" meats or un-welcomed seasonings in any of our dishes! We were VERY satisfied and can't wait to enjoy them again!
They have a Chinese cuisine section on their menu, but I've only ordered Vietnamese food here. Excellent pho and bun dishes. The goi rolls and peanut sauce are great too. Friendly wait staff. Ambience is not quite as high end as some other Vietnamese restaurants, but I think the food and prices are as good and make this a worthwhile trip. This is the Vietnamese "go-to" place in NW Indy. It's the only Vietnamese restaurant in the NW quadrant (North of 46th Street, and West of Meridian.) If you're a fan of Vietnamese food, this place merits your patronage, and deserves to be busier. Please talk it up to your friends in NW Marion County if they like Asian cuisine.
THE place in Indianapolis for good oriental cuisine...they have fresh and de Icious sushi as well as yummy treats like sesame seaweed salad, dim sum, Peking Duck ( scrumptious, and worth the ordering 24 hours in advance...it must, after all , be properly seasoned and prepared!) Standard Chinese dishes have more of a flair here and there arelenty of REAL traditional Chinese dishes.the ingredients , preparation and presentation is top notch, relaxed more elegant ambiance, and always great service. This is family owned establishment that takes pride in their work, and exemplifies hospitality.You can see their lunch and dinner menu online.
I start to come to this Great Wall at least once a week since this May when I shop for my grocery at Kroger the same shopping center. I really like it , because the people here are so friendly, speaking good English, not like most of the chinese restaurant . The most important thing is they have good food. I must order their crab rangoon and gerenal tso chicken everytime and I also treat my parents here whenever they visit me. I know several chinese restaurants in my area, there is one even having the same name Great Wall, but this Great Wall is my first choice.
Finally ever since moving to the northwest side i have not been able to find a place that delivers to me even though im not far. I didnt think it would be hard since i live on 71 st and Westlane. I came on here searching for an hour calling places that were listed as delivery, but none prevailed until now. Being located on Georgetiwn Rd. They are willing to deliver over here. They don't put themselves in a box. Im am happy that i dont have to settle for pizza when i don't want it. I saw good reviews about this place, and im ready to eat! Try it for yourself
When my cousin first mentioned this place i was a little hesitant, not a great area and looked a little run down. But i was blown away by the quality of food and service, the owner is a nice man who wants happy customers and provides quality service. We have now been eating here for family dinners for 6yrs! Every xmas eve we order $200 dollars worth of food and the owner inspects every single box and dish to make sure it is right, not to mention offers a nice discount on the big bulk orders! Give this place a try, i promise you will leave with no regrets.
This is a typical little "mom & pop" Chinese restaurant that is geared to the carry-out trade. You can eat in but be ready for warm and humid in the warm season and pretty utilitarian surrounding. Like I said, this is primarily a carry-out place. The food here is good and so are the prices. The lady who runs the register and handles the orders is VERY sweet and treats her customers well. If you're in the area and looking for decent Chinese for reasonable coin, you ought to stop in. The sweet and sour pork and bourbon chicken are two of my favorites here.
The food is amazing!! They have the greatest egg rolls, the greatest crab rangoons, and the greatest hot n sour soup ever!! I personnally know the owner and he is so kind and so is his his wife! They own the one on Madison and stop 11. His sister owns the one on Kentucky ave. I personally feel the food is much better at his store. I have tried both and drive out of my way for better food!!
We have been trying out new chinese restaurants on the southside of indy. Tthis is one of the best! They have great almond chicken and beef chop suey. Only complaint was the size of the pieces of chicken in the almond chicken. They were chopped pretty small but there were some decent sized pieces in it. Great flavor and fresh ingredients in the food. Very satisfied!
