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.

Any restaurant that survives for 30 years must be doing something right, and they are. Good food, reasonable prices, lots of parking.

We use Tarheel Takeout and order online, and love the food from Hunam. We have tried the Kung Pao Chicken and the Beef, and prefer the chicken. The veggies are delicious, and it includes lots of meat. We do ask for extra sauce. The egg rolls are also good, although not as good as they would be at the restaurant.... More

Our Cantonese friends love this place. The food isn't spicy hot unless requested, particularly the hot & sour soup. For more authentic Chinese fare, ask them for the Chinese menu. Naturally, they get busy during Chinese New Year and the Moon Festival. Lots of non-Chinese eat here, too, and it seems most of their business is take-out. One of the... More

Since we are new to t he area, we were looking for a good Chinese food restaurant and found it at the Hunam. We had the Pu-Pu platter that was very good, Hot & Sour soup that was OK, but not outstanding, House Special Pork Fried Rice, and Pork Egg Foo Young. The Fried Rice and Egg Foo Young are... More
