Ate at the Hunan Gate for lunch. Ordered Kung Pao Tofu, the hot and sour soup that came with it and steamed rice. This is easily the best Kung Pao Tofu I have eaten - flavorful sauce soaked in the tofu, crisp nuts, lots of vegetables as well. Will certainly stop there again.

Middle of the town, a great place with far east food. Ask for the "home made" menu as this is the best way to get real food from China. I will come again!!!!

The service was terrible. Sat and sat waiting to be noticed - 3 of us. Finally had to go and ask if we could order. The various items ordered were of low quality but my 97 year old mother in law was happy. We have gone here many times in the past. The service and food was good. Now, no... More

We have gone here before and the food and service was good. Not this time. We ordered 3 different lunch specials. They all tasted of old grease. One meal, the meat tasted as if it was spoiled. The Waton aand Egg Drop soup was terrible. The rolls were fried in very old greace and tasted terrible. Service, what is that.... More

Very tasty Chinese food at reasonable prices. Family atmosphere, directly across the street from the Ballston Metro station. We had soup, the special lo mein, and a chicken veggie dish (I forgot the name). Excellent service even included a hot face towel at the end of the meal

Since it's by Ballston Metro, my husband order carryout from the all English typical Chinese menu. Food was not bad but my husband told me they have another menu. I checked online and ....What a surprise!! The North Easter Chinese menu which... More

I was planning for a one day business trip in DC and found online this restaurant near the hotel I stayed. I was excited to learn from the reviews that it offers "authentic" Chinese food Dongbei style as such food are not available where I live. So I called for a carryout order while I was waiting for my plane... More

Hunan Gate was recommended by friends who’d spent some time in China so we figured that they knew what’s good (at least relatively so) Chinese food. This place has some oddities. By name it should be a Hunan restaurant, however, on closer inspection it also says Dongbei cuisine (Northeastern Chinese) on the window. And they have two sets of menus... More

Well it wasn't awful. Basically we walked in, no one greeted us or said anything to us about sitting down, so we just found a seat in the corner. My food came and it tasted extra spicy like I asked for, but there was one of every vegetable there they had one broccoli, one pepper, and things I had never... More
