Yes, they do have a buffet! Had probably 20 items or so and they served you so sticking with the covid regulations! All the food they had there was very good.

Dined at night and had to order off of menu due to pandemic. Not an issue, as food quantities are so large that we'll eat two or three meals off of one sitting. Everything was great - egg rolls, shrimp and lobster sauce, shrimp fried...rice and braised green beans. Special thanks to Brooke, our server for fantastic service and being so accommodating.More

Hot and Sour soup was watery and tasted like cornstarch thickened cheap beef broth with vinegar. Shrimp and beef were of poor quality with about as much chew as mashed potatoes. Nothing looked fresh and the vegetables were limp like they had been held for...hours on a steam table. One of the worst food experiences that my family has ever experienced. Gross and unappealing would be a compliment. Stuff from a can is better.More

My wife and I travel and enjoy good Chinese food. We went to the Hunan on the recommendation from a friend as we have recently relocated to BTR. Our order was for carryout. It was 5:30 PM and the restaurant was not busy. We ordered...Char Siu = BBQ pork, Beef and Broccoli, and Hot and Sour Soup. It took approximately 10+ minutes so we assumed our food would be freshly made and I paid just after the hostess took my order. When our food was ready the hostess said they were out of BBQ'd Pork, I will refund your money. She never asked me if we wanted to substitute anything else. When I arrived home and opened the paper bag, the food was neatly packaged and the large and small container of hot and sour soup was wrapped in clear plastic and tied. I had high hopes as I was hopeful it indicated quality. That was not to be. The soups were watery and while nicely spiced it lacked much depth of flavor. The beef and broccoli appeared as if it had been on a steam table as the broccoli was mushy and the beef oddly colored and showed no sign of being stir fried. I did not have my sights set too highly but this was some of the most mediocre Chinese food I have ever eaten. Quite honestly, I have had better in airport food courts. I should have read the reviews before going and not relied on a neighbor's recommendation. Never again.More

It was one of the few places open on Xmas day, and turned out to be quite crowded. As we were driving through, we decided to chance it. The food ranged from tolerable to synthetic (pink sauce?) and they were running out of some dishes....To be fair, they handled the volume of customers reasonably. However, the biggest talking point was that every square inch of every wall was plastered with pictures of anyone with any possibility of being a public figure. The most hilarious was one with of Dick Cheney's back!More

If the food wasn't so good, I wouldn't bother. Met by hostess that gave me 'tude because I couldn't tell her it I had 5 or 6 friends coming for lunch(at 11AM). Then we hadn't finished our first plate from the buffet, when the server...was not only taking away plates but giving us our checks and telling us to have a nice day and come back soon. I looked at the clock and saw it was 11:24. And when one of us asked for more Sprite, it was brought to her in a "to go" cup. It them have been busy, I could almost see the need to clear seating but there were empty tables all around. Now maybe, I know why. May have to go somewhere else, and seeing Paul E.'s review, the owner won't care.More

Don't bother. Placed an online order that took 1.5 hours. And the screwed up the order. Don't bother calling in an order as the owner answers the phone and can't understand english. He actually handed the phone to another customer in line to take the...order. I let him know I was unhappy with service and his response was "too bad go elsehwere". I will!!!!!More

I have eaten at this restaurant for 40 years. It has had its ups and downs through that time. It is going through a spectacular revival with a new chef Jan not sure but I think he came from Taiwan to cook for Hunan. He...is really cranking out great chinese food here. If you have not been in a while go now before it becomes too hard to get into. I had dinner here and ordered off the menu so I have not tried their lunch buffet since chef Jan has been there. I'll be willing bet it has improved as well.More

It had been a long time since we last ate at Hunan's. Stopped for lunch last week and was not disappointed. Asian buffets seem to be dying out around Baton Rouge, but at least we still have Hunan's. Dishes are fresh and replenished fairly quickly...keeping fresh product available for all customers. Really like the chicken on a stick and the General Tso's pork. Fried chicken wings were crisp and good. We definitely will go back anytime we are in that part of town.More

Though I prefer the actual menu for dinner, the lunch buffet is really good, fresh, and tons of options.
