    Default 'Great Wall' chinky, Gosport, vile muck.

    OPrawn crackers, chicken and sweet corn soup to start.
    Chicken, in Green Pepper and Black Bean Sauce.
    Boiled rice.

    Sure I don't know where to start really.

    The 'prawn' crackers tasted and smelt of rancid automatic transmission fluid. I was hungry but I threw them in the sea, the seagulls had a bite.. and then left them floating!

    The 'sweet corn soup' (which I usually love) was just old leftovers, bits of random rice and the plate scrapings from previous victims, sorry 'clients', there was one, yes one, little yellow fragment of sweet corn. ( I think the chef found it under his fore-skin... when the kitchen door swung open, I saw him having a good old scratch of his nether regions..looking for inspiration? )

    Now for the main dish.. . Raw chunks of carrot and green pepper, with a few manky scraps of gristly chicken fragments (I never knew chicken had so much gristle) all floating in UNSEASONED boiling water.

    The rice was blatantly some else's plate scrapings, it had a variety of flavour echos.

    What a letdown, I love a chinky, they are usually quite reliable.

    Verdict? I'm sitting on my boat still hungry. Arrest the ringleaders and nuke from orbit.

    The bill was £9.90. Talking of the Bill, I have had far more enjoyable meals shoved through my cell door in the nick.

    Leading on from that observation, I don't think Bobby Sands himself would have suffered any pangs of temptation in the Great Wall. Not after the first mouthful, 'oh holy Jesus take me back to H block and my nice dirty protest it smells better'.

    Worth posting insight on trip adviser . sadly Gosport does not seem to run to a Good Earth standard of Chinese fare but if you find a better one do let us know.

    I take it it is a takeaway, what else do you expect? I've not eaten takeaways for 30 years after spending some months working with a local authority environmental health department. Horrific!

    Too far for a takeaway perhaps, but if you nip across to Pompey on the Gosport Ferry, Tin Tin, which you will see in front of you, is good and reasonably priced. Don't be put off by the external appearance.

    Last time I ate at the Great Wall, many years ago, both my son and I had weird dreams all night; too much MSG I suspect!

    Nice write up My apologies. As a long time Gosport resident, before we headed South that is , I should have posted a warning earlier. Was a top notch chokkie until about 2 years ago when it change to an ''All You can Eat'' chokkie when it took a nose dive. Wife eat there with friends about 18 months back and they walked out after the starters & refused to pay it was so bad. Chokkie Joe threw a wobblie & threatened to call the Cops. Wife said go ahead whilst I call Envirometal Health...................You fluck off no come back. Round the corner 200yds is TJ's chokkie. Just as bad. They specialise in artificial food colourig.
    Best take away by far is to be found up the Hardway not far from HSC. opposite the Windsor Castle Pub, called Lams 34 St Thomas's Rd, Gosport PO12 4JX
    Phone:023 9252 5343 They deliver. Bon Appetite

    Edit to say: Its been there since the early 70's when I lived just round the corner & is still a family run business

    What do you do about paying for a take away? Lams says credit/ debit card must be registered to delivery address, in which case pontoon B 15 is slightly suspect. LAMS is a bit of a walk from Royal Clarence, it would be so good to have a delivery.

    I NEED TO KNOW
    The question is - does it parse?
