Had a lunch special rice soup and entree for about 10 dollars. Tasted good and was a good value for the price. Would recommend for a fast casual lunch.

Always dining pleasure in this subtle hushed atmosphere. Each dish was perfectly done. Best Chinese in Columbus. Excellent service and clean. We enjoy couples and small groupings here. For larger groups in the back room you lose the ambience.

We arrived for dinner Saturday night without reservation. No problem. Quickly seated in a comfortable booth. The interior is beautiful. Efficient service from the staff. This place makes higher end Chinese food. The presentation of the food matches the deliciousness of the food. Large portions reasonably priced. The best Spring rolls I've ever had. Nice to see Thai food on... More

My aunt and I went here on the recommendation of a friend; we're glad we did. We made a lunch of appetizers, always a good way to try an array of items when eating at a new restaurant. We ordered the Combination Appetizer, Crispy Bamboo Shrimp and Crab Rangoon. All were wonderful but we really should have ordered JUST the... More

Hunan Lion has consistently been serving the best Chinese good in Columbus for years. The menu is extensive and contains mild, spicy, and even Thai options. There are plenty of vegetarian options. The restaurant has a subdued elegant interior. The restaurant does a very busy take out business as well. Reasonably priced and freshly prepared Chinese food sure to please... More

We normally order take out every few months. Been years since we ate in the restaurant! I usually order as I'm driving there, very fast service. Have not had bad food and always plentiful. Enough that one dinner feeds both of us. A little pricey for take out but worth it for quantity and fast service.

Decided to try Hunan Lion after reading a lot of reviews of different Chinese restaurants in Columbus and I was definitely not disappointed. They have a lot of different items to choice from off the menu. I had the Siam Platter and it was perfectly seasoned and tasted delicious. My husband had the Hunan Pork and it was the best... More

We have eaten here for years and find the food consistently good. They serve both Chinese and Thai food. The restaurant has linens and wonderful Jasmine tea so it feel like a formal dining experience. My favorite is the Salt and Pepper Shrimp. Unlike the title it is battered shrimp with garlic and green peppers sprinkled on top. My husbands... More

Last Friday, I took my girls here - one college age, the other 7th grade. We arrived early (4:00 pm) so I can't speak to seating in an a high demand time. The environment is blissful and calm. fish tanks, quiet, simple music. This was good for us as we were more interested in conversing. No trouble getting seated. Our... More
