Good food at a great price and you get nice service as well. I thought that their Hot n Sour soup was one of the best. I would not recommend the Pad Thai but this is a Chinese restaurant, not Thai. My friend's (Chinese) dish was excellent.

I have been eating there for over 25 years. The food, whether it is buffet or off the menu is always good. Service is very good too.

I have written a separate review on that establishment as well. But what a great experience we had at Hunan! The staff was really friendly from beginning to end. Very nice after the experience we had... More

This place is horrible! I hadn't ate at the place for 20 years. So I thought we would try it again because I couldn't remember why I stopped coming. Now I remember why we never came back! The food was disgusting. After a $42 bill I felt ripped off and still hungry because of couldn't eat food because it was... More

I've eaten at Hunan's for at least 30 years. I would agree there was a period of time 3-5 years ago when Hunan seemed to lose its footing. Traditional dishes prepared by excellent staff seemed cheapened. Our visits lessened. But we decided to give it another try a year or two ago and I am p,eased to report that Hunan's... More

The restaurant is located in a very busy place and is unassuming from the outside. But inside it is a pleasure with a quiet and efficient ambiance. The staff was friendly and well managed. The menu was average but the food was very good. Nice quiet dining.

My husband and I have been coming to Hunan for 16 years. We ordered Hunan delivery and waited an inordinate amount of time (1 hour and 45 minutes) only to have our food never delivered!. Throughout this wait time, I contacted the management three times and was given three different answers regarding the delay -- what started as "He just... More

For a very long time, Hunan was our favorite Chinese eatery by far, but in the last 5-6 years, it had declined from top of the list to near the bottom. Then, a new owner took over and we decided to give it another shot. What a remarkable change. The decor is refreshed. The menu is revised, and the kitchen... More

I order the Curry Chicken Dinner Combo; the rice and hot and sour soup was ok. The Curry did not seem to have ANY red, yellow, or green curry in the sauce mix. It did have chicken, waterchest nuts, etc but seasoning was bland and saltless. Unfortunately I didn't spot the soy sauce in the bag until I was putting... More
