Kang Pao beef and Hunan beef or chicken are spicy hot good choices. Egg drop soup and hot and sour soups are good choices. Any dish with "Hunan" in its name will be spicy hot so go for it. Phone in and carryout service works...well every time. Limited sit-down table service. Parking spaces are extremely limited.More

Last week I ordered for delivery on line and received a confirmation number. we waited over an hour then I callled. They lost my order, so I ordered again over the phone and went to pick up. When all the food was put out on...the table we found they missed a food order I was charged for. no one is perfect and we do like their food. I placed another order this week and went to pick up. I walked to the door (they will not let you in at all), and they made me go back to my car to call in my name. they wouldn't even use their speaker system. when they finally came to the door with my order I told them about last week. the lady didn't care. They go the extra mile to make it more difficult to get their food, get it wrong, then don't care. I told them I would not come back and the lady said ok bye. Bye to you too. Good food isn't the only thing to keep you in business.More

We don't normally drive any more than 5 minutes to get Chinese food. This place is the exception. Really, really good. Portions are huge. General Tso's had just the right amount of heat and was huge. Triple Delights was excellent. Pepper steak with onion was...so tender and good. Prices are reasonable.More

Dry, overcooked chicken served on flimsy plastic plate with bargain-priced plastic utensils. My companion had a shrimp dish that included overcooked shrimp.

This restaurant is very busy with take outs and delivery. However, it has several tables where one can dine in. We ordered Pork Foo Young ( my companion 's favorite), Combination Fried Rice and Fried Wonton. Total cost of these foods is about $24.00. We...decided to dine in, sat at our table while waiting for our orders. Tea and water are FREE, on a "serve yourself " basis. We thoroughly enjoyed our foods. The 8 fried wontons were served first, they were crunchy and filled with meats. 3 big pieces of Egg Foo Young were served to us with a big container of sauce. The Fried Rice had pieces of beef, chicken and shrimps. Highly recommended! Tips: The restaurant also offers Vegetarian Dishes. It has a big sign at the entrance about not using msg and frozen vegetables. Good place to order Vegan Chinese foods. It also serves several Thai Dishes Udon. Try these dishes next time we're in the vicinity. Delivery - they also deliver ordered foods amounting to over $15.More

I was feeling under the weather so I went with two soups, the Wonton ($3 quart) and Seafood noodle ($7.55 quart). The wontons were not heavy and were a tad creamy which was nice. The seafood soup, with a pint of noodles on the side,...was packed with ingredients. What I recall is as follows: sea legs, slices of cucumber, broccoli, carrots, Asian cabbage, small shrimp, mushrooms, sliced scallops, pea pods, celery and onion. Wow that was a great soup if you can get past there is no lobster and you are getting the much cheaper sea legs.More

We were looking for a new Chinese restaurant so I searched Yelp and they recommended this place. I do agree with Yelp, it's very clean and they're friendly. They seemed to have a nice traffic of business. I placed my order online and called ahead...to confirm it was ready and it was. I had to wait several minutes for them to finish cooking our Crab Rangoon, no worries. I was worth the wait! They were delicious! Unfortunately, the Chicken & Cashews I'd requested to be prepared "spicy" wasn't and it was terrible. It was too salty, dry and all we tasted was the breading. The cashews were spongy. We couldn't taste any chicken at all. We also had chicken lo mein, made with white meat. I was very tasty. So, two out of the three dishes were good, that's why we'll be returning to give other dishes a try.More

First, you receive a warm welcome as soon as you walk in from the woman at the front desk every time you go! There was quite a few months between our first and second visit and she immediately remembered us and what we ordered! Secondly,...The food is amazing -- always fresh, hot and flavorful; vegetables are crisp. If you like vegetables, get the Szechuan Style Green Beans. Brown rice is on the menu for $1 more if you don't like white rice. There are many Chinese restaurants near my house, but I will drive 20 minutes to Hunan Cafe because I know we will have an enjoyable experience and a delicious meal. Definitely recommend it for carryout or dining in.More

This place was recommended by a friend. I stopped going to the place I have been going to for years because I really like this place. The food is awesome, I always call ahead and it's ready when I get there and the lady behind...the counter always seems to be pleasant and outgoing. Definitely recommend it.More

After reading reviews of this place on line, I decided to give it a try. In a word - impressive. Their on-line ordering is easy and thorough. Then I was shocked how quickly the food came - less than 30 minutes. The portions were big....And the food! Crispy veggies, tender chicken, wonderful sauce! All good. The only negative (and this is very small in comparison) is that the delivery man smelled like he had just smoked a whole pack of cigarettes! But the food was fine - make that more than fine! Wonderful!More

This is the best Chinese food I've ever tasted! It's very hard to find a Chinese food restaurant who uses good healthy ingredients and they do. All their food is super fresh and you can tell from the second you breathe in the aromas until...the moment you are licking your utensil savoring the amazing flavors! It's not expensive or formal, but I would compare it to going to a Chinese grandmother's house for a meal- everything is made fresh and with love! So good! Everything is flavored perfectly- the sauces aren't excessively flavorful or watery, PERFECT! Everything is delicious, fresh, and made efficiently! You can't go wrong with any choice. I can't say enough about how much I enjoy eating here!More

Have you ever heard of a Chinese Restaurant specializing in Thai Curry chicken, beef, shrimp? Well now you have ~ at the Hunan Cafe. Their signature dish is the General Tso's chicken which does NOT use dark meat, rather they use white meat. They also...only cook with fresh (never from a can) vegetables where they peal the snow peas everyday. This restaurant is a gem of Germantown/Gaithersburg/N. Potomac Md.More
