We were seated promptly and had so much fun ordering three main dishes plus soup plus dumpling appetizer. The food is very delicious and served hot. They have Egg drop Won Ton Soup that is very good. The Four Happiness with White Sauce is full of chicken shrimp beef and pork. Alex has great chefs in the kitchen. We also... More

Don't let the location in a strip mall fool you, Great Wall of China South is a very good, full service, Chinese restaurant with a full bar and a good (albeit small) Sake selection. Waitstaff is very attentive and friendly (Hi Tammy!) and we have never made a bad choice from the menu, but we're really partial to the Hot... More

This is one of the few restaurants in Charlotte that you can order of a "real Chinese menu". In my opinion, if you stay with this menu, you will be fine. Some of the more "Americanized" dishes can be hit or miss nowadays. I've been going there for 20 years. The servers all used to greet me with smiles.. but... More

This is an experience of a lifetime of climbing the great wall beyond the 10th fortress. The weather is so conducive. The sun is bright with the cool air from the green mountain where the great wall was landscaped like a dragon. The climbers like me are in casual clothes. Each one holding his own camera phone to capture not... More

Since moving to Charlotte from Boston, it's been hard to find a good Chinese food restaurant. This is one of the better places we've tried, but I'm still searching. We've had take out here a few times, so I can't comment on the service or ambiance. The food is standard American Chinese food, so we tend not to try a... More

Been to this place a few times. Food is always great but service is spotty. They charge a mandatory tip of 18% which only cheats them out of more money if the service is good.

This Chinese restaurant is located in a strip shopping center has a varied menu and is well run by the owners. The service is good and efficient and their sesame chicken and moo shu pork are tasty. We always start with egg rolls. Its a great place to take the family and if the kids get restless they get up... More

Its hard to find authentic Chinese food in Charlotte and if you do, it is primarily targeted at Chinese speaking people. This place provides authentic Chinese food with an English menu and English speaking waiters. All the dishes we ordered were great. They specialize in SiChuan cuisine which is typically spicy, the way I like it. The service is generally... More

We don't get here as often as I'd like but I've never experienced a lovlier staff. The food is good, better by far than some but I can see where a more particular palate would find fault. Regardless, my husband and myself as well as my in laws all enjoy it.
