Hole in the wall frat scene with large 34oz deep discount cold beers. It can get pretty crazy on the weekends but if you're looking to do something out of the ordinary and you're looking to party in a Chinese restaurant in the Clarendon area, this is your place to go.

Food is fresh and reasonably priced for the area. A lot of local Asians frequent the place so you know it has to be decent.

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 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 excited to learn from the reviews that it offers "authentic" Chinese food Dongbei style as such food are not available where I live.
