When you dine here, try the items from the Korean section of the menu. It's Chinese food, but the type that originated in Korea. It's prevalent in cites like LA, Dallas, NYC and other larger cities to an extent, but to find a place that...makes this type of food in a smaller city like Birmingham was a very pleasant surprise. I love jajangmyun and cham-pong. Their jajangmyun is solid, but it is the cham-pong that is the star attraction. It has a rich broth and the usual ingredients, but the amount of shrimp they put in is way above average. Speaking of going the extra mile, they also put in a few large scallops, which is uncommon in a good way. I also enjoy the charm of the cool but kind of crabby older gentleman server. Those who frequent this type of place, know exactly what I'm talking about.More

Food is spot on and the offer traditional dishes along with the usual Americanized fare. Staff is friendly and glad to handle special requests.

Very friendly staff and the food is very good. My only complaint is they overload dishes with garlic that normally have very little or no garlic elsewhere.

This is a hole in the wall place. They serve authentic Chinese food that is always good. The service is wonderful. Be sure to try the Egg Drop Soup. It is phenomenal.

I have often eaten here. I have eaten almost every chicken dish they offer and I have never been disappointed. The wait staff is kind, attentive and always gets my orders right.

Lunch last Saturday. Good hot soup and excellent egg roll. Entree not as tasty as before. Probably less MSG! But I gained 4 pounds! Still one of our favorite places to eat.

Hunan is fresh and delivered on time. The egg rolls are the best in the area and the staff is friendly.

My wife and I have been eating at Hunan for over 15 years. It has been consistently outstanding over the years and still is. We recently had Kung Pao shrimp, chicken chow mein, sweet and sour chicken and Mongolian beef. All were excellent. This modest...family-owned and operated restaurant should be at the top of your list for Chinese food and now Korean as well. They never disappoint.More

We've eaten at a hundred Chinese places in many different states. This one is the best by far. Plenty of garlic in the beef with snow peas. Plenty of rice noodles in the Mongolian beef. Best egg drop soup we've ever eaten. Excellent fried wontons....Never had a bad experience here. They apparently do a lot of takeout as well. Yes it's a hole in the wall but well worth the effort to cross 280 to get here.More
