What a fun place! Imagine finding every piece of Chinese kitschy decor and cram it into a huge colorful building, complete with fish pond outside and "windows" of live fish separating tables. We had a bowl of tiny dumplings which were very good, General Tso Triple Fragrance and Tangerine Beef. All very good, but the General Tsos hardly had any sauce to put on the rice. Of course that didn't matter too much since it was the tiniest bowl of rice anyway. The main negative was the service. It was spectacular in terms of getting whatever we wanted or needed, but it was too fast, a result of them wanting to keep on moving people through so more people could be served. We called it ninja service! Don't go for a slow relaxed meal. We would go back.

This venue put you right in the heart of China. The atmosphere, environment, and food are very good. I have yet to be disappointed. Visit for a fun, good night out with family or friends.

We had decided to go to Hunan based on reviews and the advice of our hotel concierge. What a huge disappointment.
The food was terrible -- the wait staff was terrible -- the restaurant itself is tired and needs an update. Several dishes were inedible and many of the orders were returned to the kitchen as they were incorrect. The icing on the cake was when the manager insisted we leave a larger tip for the wait staff as they are paid so dismally by the restaurant and depend on their tips to survive. We ALWAYS leave at least 15% - and considerably more if the service warrants it.

This place looks neat, inside and out. We came for lunch and everyone enjoyed their meals very much. The Peking pork chop was outstanding.

Hunan Taste is not just a restaurant, it is an experience. Friends and I had lunch here last week and it was like taking eating at an ornate over the top Chinese Palace in the Forbidden City. The exterior is elaborately constructed like an emperors temple complete with a koi pond. The interior flashes gold at every turn including the gold napkins on the table and upscale silverware. An orchid under glass is set on the table. The many aquariums which are inset in the wall brighten what is overall a dim elegant lighting.

As you enter the restaurant a host greets you and your waiter in a black sports coat directs you to a table. The menu is in both English and Chinese. Water with ice is poured almost immediately while your head waiter takes drink orders. Fried wanton crisps are brought to the table with duck and hot mustard sauces in small bowls. A large free pot of tea is also delivered at this time.The meal started with a fairly large bowl of egg drop soup which I thought was exceptionally delicious perhaps the best I have ever had. We ordered the Happy Family (1 shrimp, 2 scallops, vegetables sautéed in a brown sauce) $13.95. While the dish was very tasty I thought it was very light on the shrimp and scallops and thus the four stars. A friend had the Sesame Chicken $10.95 which she thought was delicious. Finally, we had the pork with mixed vegetables with garlic sauce which was also very tasty at $9.75.You get a choice of brown rice, pork fried rice or fried rice. At the end of the meal chucks of pineapple are set on the table.

Although it was lunch time and there were a lot of quests the pace of the meal was a bit on the fast side but totally efficient. We were not rushed and lingered with a cup of tea at the end of the meal. I appreciated the speed at which the check arrived.
