I WENT TO THE GREAT WALL ON NAMEOKI ROAD PAYING 10$ PER PERSON AND THE BUFFET WAS NEARLY EMPTY. I ASKED FOR THEM TO REFILL THE CRAB LEGS, ONION STEAK, STUFFED MUSHROOMS, GENERAL TSO'S, CLAMS AND SEVERAL OTHERS AND THEY REPLIED THAT THEY HAD RAN OUT OF THOSE ITEMS AND I TOLD THEM I WANTED MY MONEY BACK AND THEY REFUSED US!!.. THEY SAID I SHOULD HAVE LOOKED AT THE BUFFET BEFORE PAYING. THEN THEY TALKED A BUNCH OF SHIT ON US IN CHINESE, LAUGHING AND CARRYING ON. I FEEL SCAMMED!

I've been there about 5 times so far. Once every so often. Always decent food. The place would be poppin though if they didn't charge so much. If they had a 6 dollar option. I'd be there all the time. Just sayin..

I went there one time with my husband and had to use the restroom first. The sewer gases coming out of the drain hole were so strong I nearly vomited. I came out with tears rolling down my face because the smell took my breath and I told the man behind the counter. He said something I couldn't understand and we left. Those gases are very dangerous for people to breathe. Never went back!!!

We eat there often, and went again last night, Sunday, around 7pm. It was the best food I have ever eaten there. The place smelled clean, and when the kitchen door swung open, it looked clean in back,too from what I could see. Nobody makes hot and sour soup as good as they do. Wish they would put egg foo yung on the dinner buffet.

my husband and i went to the great wall a couple of weeks ago , both ordered the buffet and we did look at it first since we have heard a few bad things about it, however when getting our plats there was old food stuck to the side of one of the "clean one's" when i told the man at the register he said something to one of the girls who instead of picking up the pile of plats and taking them to the back and re washing them she walked up to the plats and scraped the old food off with her hand!!!!! GROSS!!!! You are serving the public! So we didnt eat and when my husband went and said something to the guy he said no refund and my husband threw a fit, so long story short he was told to never come back, which pretty sure we wont be anyways!

i really wish that someone would open a new chinese buffet in granite...that place would so go out of business because they are terrible with customer service and their food isn't that good it's just our only option when your starving enough for a buffet and want chinese. someone please open up bamboo bistro again!

Well, I dated one of the guys who worked at Great Wall, and I ate there often. One day while eating, I picked up a sugar coated donut and there was a roach on the bottom of it! I nearly vomited in the floor, but made it to the restroom.(Which was so dirty I wanted to get sick again!) I didnt say anything because the other knows me, and I feared my ex would get reprimanded severly for it. But Ive never ate there again and I urge all my friends to do the same. I've also had a bad experience with dirty dishes, but thats a small mistake. They wash them in containers, and sometimes the machines just miss food. The chick with the really blonde hair is a dummy though, so I can see her just putting it back! Ew! Anyway, thats my experience. A golden corral would be AWESOME!

I've eaten at all the local Chinese places, and I like their hot and sour soup the best--maybe it's a personal preference, but it's not too bland, like most places--and they put lots of tofu and mushrooms in it.

had carry-out from China 88 last night and it was so horrible I couldn't eat it. Had Chicken Broccoli and the chicken was so wierd that I wasn't sure it was even chicken. It was supposed to be fried boneless chicken used in the dish and it was mostly chicken skin or what appeared to be chicken skin and chicken fat. The chicken was cut wierd too. We've eaten there 3 times, twice bad and 1 time a good experience. Never again though.
