We find ourselves at this local neighborhood Chinese regularly and enjoy some of our favorites: hot & sour soup, summer rolls, crispy beer, lemon chicken, triple delight, but we recently tried the sashimi salad and were pleasantly surprised at how delicately it was sliced and the selection of fish... read more

Already reviewed on a different site, but definitely want to share this place! Excellent neighborhood restaurant! We go there almost every single week--it has been a family favorite for years for several reasons. First Hunan East is our daily delivery/take-out/dine-in restaurant. It has a great family-friendly atmosphere, and a variety of mouth-watering Japanese, Chinese and Thai dishes. Their Sunset Roll... More

First, you never wait to be seated. The place is a good size and atmosphere is very nice. Service is excellent. The egg drop soup and egg rolls are our favorite appetizers. Great beef fried rice and chow mien. Much better than most Chinese restaurants in the area.

We have so many restaurant options in Reston and Herndon, but wanted to try something new so chose Herndon East based on the reviews and the fact that the place was under new ownership. We can't remember the last time we had such terrible service. It took 20 minutes for the wait staff to even come by our table, and... More

But I really love their won ton and hot and sour soups. The hostess remembered my name, and the owner came out to say hi. Always treated so well here, and the food is good too!

Most of what we get is good. The egg drop soup, fried rice, chicken, etc. I don't care for their egg rolls, all pastry. If not for them, I might give them a 4.

It's been several years since I've eaten here. The place has been stylishly refurbished and is very inviting. Our waiter, Peter, was very helpful with suggestions and answering our questions about the menu. The chefs were very accommodating in the preparation of our meals, some enjoyed spicy, while others preferred mild. We had a large table and decided to try... More

super place to go in to eat or call in for take-out. Their website is easy to use so you can place an order on-line then send hubby in to pick it up. They customize any dish. I always order the Zen of Greens w/out corn starch. The sushi is quite good, especially the lunch specials they offer! Nice atmosphere,... More

First of all I love the fact you can customize the dish...extra meat, no onions, extra mushrooms, no vegetables...it's fantastic. We've ordered from them three times over the past week and they have gotten every special order correct down to their great fried rice rather than boring steamed white rice. The portions are generous and the quality of ingredients top... More
