It has been 14 months since we previously reviewed this family-owned business, even though we have been here several times in between. The quality of food is exceptional. And since then we have learned that the noted rare books collector who lives in the neighborhood is responsible for putting together a special "Gourmet Menu" that supplements the regular menu.

Arguably the best Chinese restaurant I've ever eaten at. The hot & sour soup is absolutely the best. Their dishes using local seasonal greens are incredible, and the scallion pancake appetizer is delicious...but by far, the best dish I've had here, and by extension at any Chinese restaurant I've ever eaten at, is the savory aromatic roasted chicken. Not fried,... More

It is a small and dated restaurant but the food is very good. Don't let the facade stop you from going in. The restaurant is clean. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The restaurant is clean. The food here is not your typical Chinese. More attention is paid to the preparation of better ingredients. The food tastes fresher, more... More

Lot's of people think Great Wall is the best Chinese restaurant ever. I, for one, can't really understand why it has this reputation. My father in law wants to eat three whenever we go out. I'll admit that it's better than a run of the mill Chinese restaurant and sometimes they use local vegetables but it follows the basic Chinese... More

The food is good, no denying, but not worth the cost of the small portions, the fact that you will get all the way home before realizing they left stuff out of your order or got some of it wrong, and having to deal with the rudeness of the staff. Like they are doing me the favor of waiting on... More

As my dad was reaching his 100th birthday, we brought him from New York City to an assisted living facility in Western Massachusetts. While spry and fully alert, he could no longer continue on his own in his own New York apartment. As soon as he settled in, we debated how to celebrate his centennial, the answer was easy: Chinese...

This was my first experience with dim sum, and I'm happy to say it happened here at Great Wall, a small, friendly place with a family feel. All we had to say - there were 6 of us - was "Yes" when asked if we wanted dim sum, and the plates began appearing. I wish I knew all the names... More

Came at a quiet time, very friendly staff. Ordered curry chicken extra spicy with extra veggies. Yummy and I felt very comfortable dining alone. Lots of take out orders but dining in was OK.

Mediocre food delivered late and cold. Never an apology. We live five minutes away from the restaurant. No excuse for one hour and ten minutes delivery time, and all food was cold. Unhappy - won't do it again. This is not the first time we have been disappointed. Slow learners, but it's the only game in town. Good excuse for... More

Great Wall is a family run Chinese Restaurant in Florence, MA, near Northampton. They serve a special "Dim Sum" on Saturdays from 11 AM until 2 PM. I have had Dim Sum before in Hong Kong and it is different than regular menu items. You are offered a big variety of small portions of pork or shrimp, steamed buns etc.... More
