Chinese Food

What would be a typical name for a Chinese restaurant in Israel?
Here, they have names like "Happy China," "Great Wall", "Peking."
Is it the same in Israel? Would "Great Wall" be "Ha Kotel Gadol," and if so, how would it be distinguished from the other Kotel? And would that be seen as sacrilegious?

Why, are you opening one? There's a place called "Yossi Pekin". I don't think "Kotel" would work with Chinese food...
No, I was just musing over it after eating Chinese food yesterday.
There's "China Town"... and in Hebrew they use the same name as it sounds in English, but write it in Hebrew letters - "צ'יינה טאון"
But it's more of a fast-food chain in malls than an actual restaurant.

Huh. It's funny that it's transliterated English and not translated into Hebrew.
