This place reopened in the Fox Mill shopping center about a year ago. Each time we've gone in it's never been crowded, but not because of the food. It's actually very good, reasonably priced, and the service is excellent. I've had much worse Chinese food.

They have done a great job in renovating this place. Overall, the food is good. I don't think they should charge $1.50 for a small container of white rice when we dined in and asked for a box to take the rest home. This policy is bad and it cost the water $1 out of his tip. Stop being cheap.

This restaurant has recently been remodeled and the food has improved greatly. We will be returning regularly. It's a really nice surprise to find truly well prepared and beautifully served Chinese restaurant.

This restaurant is hidden away in an ordinary shopping center, but well worth seeking it out. Newly redecorated in recent months, the menu is an extensive one, with all of the traditional Asian and Oriental selections and a more than ordinary sushi items. The prices are right and the portions ample, I had the General Tso's shrimp, the shrimp were... More

This has been our local Chinese place for many, many years. We have done a lot of take out here and sometimes eat in. With the major interior makeover to this place we now really enjoy eating in the dining room. It looks nothing like it used to. The decor is professionally done and look just fantastic. It has a...

Although we'd been unimpressed with the food in years past, we decided to try it again, since they were advertising a new menu. The interior is a complete make-over, and very pleasant and relaxing. Although there are TVs next to the bar, it's never been noisy. Service has always been good. Over several visits we've tried their Singapore-style noodles, their... More

I'd been unimpressed with Chinese food at Hunan East a few years ago, but we saw a sign about their new menu and gave them another try. Walking in, we were surprised and pleased with the new decor, from tired and old, to spacious and serene. The new menu pleased us too: the lightly curried Singapore rice noodles were good,... More

Being relatively new the area we were in search for a restaurant that is above middle of the road, one that has an interesting menu reflecting true cuisine capabilities, a restaurant that does not provide or server gobs of processed food and with price points to match. The Hunan East in Fox Mill fits this bill. The wait staff is... More
