Ordered carry-out. Was done on time and temperature of the food was hot. Enough food for left overs. In my view the best restaurant of this type in Rochester, MN

We go to Rochester at least once a year. We have eaten here the last 3 years. The food is served fast and hot. I always have the General Tso Chicken.

I let the server know that I am a vegetarian and asked what she suggested. She brought me a huge dish with tofu and an assortment of veggies in a spicy brown sauce. Excellent. And the service was excellent as well. I wish I could return more often.

Total blast from the past...greasy, goopy and over-cooked. We did take-out. Got the "tidbit platter," and it seemed as though everything had been prepared hours ago and been under heat lamps ever since, after a few bites most of it got thrown away :( The Fragrant Vegetables were OK, but over sauced and over cooked. The House Lo Mein was... More

Called and ordered 2 hunan beef and 2 fried rice. Got home and had only 1 rice. I even repeated myself since this has happened before. Also have to check the rice as sometimes they give white rice when you ask for fried rice. Good food just wish order would be right.

Very affordable, $6.75 per entree. They do not have classics like Gen Tso or Orange Chicken. I thought the preparation on the Sesame Chickenwas interesting, far less greasy than most places since the batter wasn't very thick, but my husband was not wild over it. The Tsin something chicken they made unspicy for me since I'm a big chicken, and... More

We think Hunan Northgate is the #1 chinese spot in town. Authentic, great food, great service, great value. Our family of 4 will meet other families there, kids welcome, and enough food to take home leftovers for additional meals!

Best Chinese food in Rochester! We and many of our friends eat here often and we are all of the same opinion as to this restaurant. Try the Curry Chicken!
