Being a vegetarian, there are not many places where I can find good Chinese food. We in for lunch not knowing what to expect as Hunan has no menu, but a fixed tasting course. They gave us 12 small plates of appetizers, main course and dessert. I must say we really enjoyed our meal and were impressed at the variety... More

Decent line up of small plates, some luke warm rather than either convincingly hot or cold, and seasoning very hit and miss. The 'main course' was an abysmal quarter of 'crispy duck'—no better than in a Cantonese cafe—served with stale salad vegetables. They had purportedly run out of anything better, which had provoked a nearby couple to protest, souring the... More

Been to this place quite a few times and love the food every time. Great service and wide range of food that keeps coming and coming. I recommend that you skip lunch if you are going to visit this place for dinner. Outstanding place. Will visit again and again

This is a Chinese culinary tour de force. The set menu that we had for lunch had so many courses, vegetarian, seafood, meat and duck, and each one was cooked exceptionally. The service was very friendly and responsive. The setting is quite casual, but equally, the value (£42 for the lunch menu) compares very favourably for the quality and quantity... More

Although the reviews were excellent, we found the service excellent and staff were welcoming and polite but the food did not live up to our expectations. With the reviews as good as they were, we were expecting to leave feeling "Wowed" and we left feeling Ok which is not what we had anticipated. The food was very well presented but... More

Hunan is quite simply my favorite restaurant not just in London but anywhere. Since discovering it's exotic pleasures we've made a point to have a full on foodie feast here ever time we return to the city. So how we ended up trying to be a walk-in for the first seating at 6:30 on a beautiful spring Tuesday that also... More

Went here last night with a freind who's a regular and has been "bigging it up" for ages - with good reason!! The food was incredible - unlike any Chinese meal I've had before, and yet still recognisable if you're looking for cuisine from that region. Plate after plate arrived, each one absolutely gorgeous, from soup served in a bamboo... More

We eat Chinese food a lot as our daughter in law is Chinese and we have travelled in China and also sought out the best Chinese food in Dublin, London and Sydney. So I don't say it lightly when I say this meal was perfection on a plate, or 21 separate plates to be precise. We opted for the "no... More

First impressions were good - we were going to be late for the reservation due to a concert overrunning but a cheerful 'no problem - we look forward to seeing you' was reassuring. Indeed we were very late arriving 10:10pm but we were welcomed as if it was the beginning of service. The food is extraordinarily good and something of... More

Wonderful food! Great service! A bit on the pricey side but worth every penny! Will definitely visit again when we are back in London! And we will definitely recommend it to friends and family! If you want something different it's worth a visit!
