Sick and tired of being told 30-40 min and show up only to have to wait double the time. No apologies, nothing. Food is nothing like it used to be. Poorly executed from ordering to quality of food.

Great choice for take out. The ordering process is very efficient with food being ready for pickup in 20 to 25 minutes. Our favorite is the Hunan chicken combo dinner which includes soup and appetizer plus appetizer.

My husband and I ate here last week and each ordered our "usual" that we have been ordering here for at least 10 years. My husband's Hunan Chicken had no red pepper, not bad just not good. My Mongolian Beef had no rice noodles and the sauce had little flavor but an after taste so bad and I went home... More

Have only eaten in the restaurant once but have taken out more times than I can remember. The food is very good for St Louis Chinese. We have tried other local places and this has the best tasting food. I do not think they have ever got one of the takeout orders wrong. Great attention to detail!

Hunan Empress is a wonderful place to dine-in or carry-out. My family does a little of both. The food is excellent and so much better tasting than a buffet. If quality Chinese food is what you are seeking...Crisp General Tso's chicken with a little spice (but never too much) and you enjoy tasting different flavors in your fried rice, then... More

5 Couples made reservations for dinner over a week ago, we were shoe horned in between two larger parties and were not comfortable at all. It has probably been 8 years since my wife and I dined at the Hunan Empress. I remember why now. Like Yogi said, no one goes there because it is too crowded. That it was... More

Great lunch. Clean restaurant and nice service. Wonton soup, egg roll, crab ragoon and shrimp with mixed vegetables were fresh and very, very good.

Reminded me of my trip to San Fran. Absolutely delicious. They serve green tea with your meal and it's delicious. The food portions are huge and staff is friendly and kind. MY NEW FAV PLACE

I will say immediately, I give great credit that the sauces are house-made. Then the bad . . . unfortunately, there is much. My girlfriend and I were regulars more than a year ago as we lived in the area. In our return the past 2 months after four experiences here this is vast change to the past. The sauces... More

Nine friends and myself decided to gather at this restaurant for Chinese. We did not make a reservation due to not knowing how many would be coming. The management seated us without a problem. All orders were perfect and delivered timely even though we ordered on separate checks. And the food was so tasty! Waitress and management was very nice.... More
