Great Wall

3, Edward Lane, Colombo 3


Great Wall has been around for a while now, but they're mostly known for their take out. We dropped by for lunch to see how they match up against the growing number of Chinese restaurants in Colombo.



We recently decided to try the Great Wall restaurant for a lunch take-out. As far as I've heard, they do decent mid-range Sri Lankan Chinese fare at middling prices. Nothing too fancy, and a good place for uncles to unwind. They claim to deliver food so we called up to order a couple of executive lunches. They were polite enough but informed us that deliveries were for a Rs. 1000 minimum so we'd have to come pick it up, which we did as it's a pretty central location.

At Rs. 300 each, there's a solid quantity of food. A heap of the usual Chinese vegetable fried rice teamed with a little omelette, a good serving of chopsuey vegetables, a chunky piece of fried chicken, and the customary generous blob of chillie paste.

It's what you'd expect for the price. A decent Lankan-Sino fried and tossed meal, not particularly healthy but a tasty and easy option. It's a bit expensive for the usual office-goers daily lunch ration, specially since they don't seem to have an individual delivery service in place. Also this seems like the kind of standard fare you'd get absolutely tired of after the second day.

It's a good, uninspired option for a one-off office lunch in a hungry spot.

TIP

If you're trying to decide between the Special friend rice and chicken fried rice, we suggest you go with the latter since it's cheaper, and there's hardly any noticeable between the two.

Very nice place. Waiters are friendly and humble. But don't be fooled about the portions; they are quite big even for a small. This is much better than Chinese Dragon and Min Han which is just a small rubbish hut. The food was served very quickly and it was affordable. They have some discounts on cards and they are usually free for lunchtime. Good for small business lunches and meetings with clients or just a lunch with some friends. Overall pretty nice. I was reasonably pleased.
