This used to be the only place I'd head to for Chinese food in Rochester -- and it's probably still the best in the area, but "Best of Rochester" isn't saying much...

This was a disappointment. I saw that they were the highest rated Chinese restaurant in town so we ordered some takeout here. I had Happy Family (shrimp, scallops, chicken and pork) and my friend ordered the plum pork. Both of us felt that the dishes were very bland. They need to do something to get some flavor into these dishes.

Our waitress was excellent. The appetizers arrived very quickly. For some reason our entrees arrived later than anyone else's around us, even though we ordered first and they also had appetizers. Even so, I would still say the service was very good. The egg rolls were good and the crab ragoons were ok. Excellent general tso Chicken. The sesame chicken... More

Chinese restsurants are usually a good bet for vegetarians like us. Where else can you get a healthy serving of vegetables? We started out with a very good hot snd sour soup, here called spicy and sour soup. This is the first time we saw it called thus - a more appropriate name, I think. We had mixed vegetables with...

I ordered a lamb dish, the lamb was so tough, and chewy, I could not eat it. Told the waitress and she didn't do anything. Also told the cashier about the food, and only thing she would offer is a discount on a future purchase. My wife didn't like her food either it was mostly water chestnuts. Terrible food, poor...

My bride and I have been enjoying the Hunan Garden since before we got married 20 years ago. We usually dine at least once on each trip to Rochester. The food is authentic and amazing. Try the Crab Rangoon...its the best anywhere. I love the duck dishes and the 'fragrant' items as well. The prices are low and the portions... More

You can't go wrong with hunan's, we always have a great meal each time we go. The egg rolls are the best I've ever had. When I'm craving Chinese food, this is the place for me!

Hunan Garden food is good for Rochester Chinese food. The problem is that they don't pay attention to food allergies. The person next to us had the paramedic's come take her away. She was passed out at the table. Our server said it was probably a food allergy. Our food came with corn in it. Our server told them I... More

Had our food to go. The order only took 10 minutes. We ordered hot & sour soup (tasty but not the best ever), egg rolls (o.k.), fragrant shrimp with extra vegetables (really yummy with lots of pea pods, mushrooms, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and plenty of shrimp) and almond chicken (which I did not try).

We went at lunch, and had way more food than we could eat, even though 3 of us split two dishes. The soups were as expected: the hot and sour and egg drop did not disappoint, nor did they wow. The pork fried rice was tasty and the Chicken dish we had was nicely done, and did have some spiciness.... More
