Good Chinese-American buffet

Hunan King has long been a popular lunch buffet destination, located inside University Mall. Buffet options are typical Chinese-American restaurant fare - well made but choices are limited. Dinning room is often crowded and single buffet table is congested

This place is great. Their "Chinese" menu noodle soups are wonderful, giving you a choice of chow fun, and other noodles, and different dumplings and won tons and meats and seafood. They are so labor-intensive and authentic that they actually make their own sesame oil; they grind the roasted seeds to extract the oil, right in their own kitchen! They... More

This is a college town, so the food better be good or the business will die. This one "hit the spot". The service was fast and the food was delicious. It seems to be a very popular place with the college kids too.

I used to love this place and it was the only Chinese place I really ate. The last few visits though have been very disappointing. After recommending this place to my mom, she ordered dinner for us only to receive a dinner full of what tasted like burnt garlic. It made the entire meal taste burnt. She called to complain...

I don't usually make such public complaints, but this situation was just so unprofessionally handled that it makes me very sad to even write such a review. Our visit was good until one point.. The interior is rather pretty with live turtles and fishes in a small pond. And big Chinese red signs in the hallway walls which looked pretty... More

My wife and I dropped in Hunan King today while visiting the annual YMCA Craft show conducted in the surrounding shopping mall. This was my first visit - I'll be back. The entrance to the Hunan King is through a long curved hallway, giving it a somewhat mysterious/adventuresome feeling. Around a corner and you meet the cashier/hostess who promplty shows... More

Went there tonight and had the beef broccoli and the eggplant with garlic sauce and vegetarian rolls. Wouldn't get the rolls again (veggies had too much soy sauce or something) and the tea was over steeped, but the entrees were delish. The beef strips were good quality and not fatty/tough at all and the veggies were crisp, fresh, and not... More

I ate at the Hunan Garden in University Mall on a business trip to Virginia Tech. First, the good: the proprietors were friendly and the wait staff were efficient and very attentive. The menu is typical of Chinese restaurants, with some chefs specials and the usual assortment of appetizers, stir-fry dishes, sweet and sour, etc. The less-than-good: the restaurant is... More
