Good food - Nice Staff

It has a very extensive regular menu, and a nice Chinese menu as well. You can't go wrong here. Modest prices, good service, and a quiet meditative atmosphere.

The food was fresh and cooked to perfection. The meal was seasoned just right and there was a generous portion. The staff is attentive and polite. The atmosphere is pleasant and soothing. The prices are very reasonable.

My husband and I ordered take out and the food was ready in 15 minutes. The food was average, nothing outstanding. The vegetarian spring rolls were very greasy, but the flavor was otherwise good. We will order from them again to try different dishes.

This is the best Chinese restaurant food we have ever eaten over our many years. The folks at the front were friendly and most helpful and patient with menu explanations. Take out was quick and everything was packaged well to stay warm while keeping the vegetarian spring rolls very crisp. We will be back repeatedly and highly recommend this restaurant... More

I have eaten at Hunam at least twice a month since 1984 and I have never had less than a very good experience. They serve a variety of styles of Chinese food, so you will likely find something that you like. The soups are especially good! Lunch is an especially great value. Dim Sum is definitely worth a go.

We came to try the Beijing duck three way. Let me tell you it can feed about 4 people. It was three of us and we gave it a good try but definitely had leftovers. Didn't help that we also ordered beef chow fun as well.... The duck is actually 3 courses and each one was great. Wraps, veggies ,... More

This restaurant has been here for a long time. Human is much better than any other Chinese restaurants in the area. They offer Dim Sum and their Chinese menu with delicious Cantonese style cuisine. Easy to find, and plenty of parking spaces. We have never been disappointed here. Just love it!

Located in a strip mall with lots of parking. We ate lunch here Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was uncrowded and service was acceptable. We had a brand new waitress, who was assisted by a more experienced worker. The three of us split steamed pot stickers, pork with chili sauce, and salt fried squid. All were well prepared. We would come... More

We've been coming here for 20 years. It's remarkably consistent and hits the spot every time. It's our Chinese comfort food spot.

Not the best Chinese restaurant in the area, but in a central location. The chef uses a lot of preservatives.
