WE have found Hunan to be one of the best Chinese restaurants in our area. Having lived and worked in China we long for similar dishes here. Hunan comes pretty close to replicating what we enjoyed overseas. Prices are reasonable and service is friendly. They handle take out service very well too.

Food was warm at best, rice was plentiful but could have been better. The veggies were pretty good, crunchy and fresh. The sauce wasn't watered down like most others so after re reading my review I changed my score from a 3 to a 4

Hunan's is the best place in the Tri-Cities area for great Chinese food. It is not your typical buffet style Chinese restaurant where the food sits and sits. Everything is always prepared fresh, it is always hot and plentiful and there is a wide variety of menu items to choose from. I love the egg foo young and there is... More

Place has a divish quality but the food is good, hot and plentiful. Never had a bad experience here. The wife is gluten free and they will cook to order to suit her. Service is very good and attentive. As for an actual detail for a particular meal probably cant go wrong with any as I have tried a bunch... More

If your looking for trendy hip Asian cuisine....this ain't it. Just good traditional Chinese food in a basic no thrills setting. Soups are good ...served quickly and always hot...I especially like the Hot and Sour Soup. The fried dumplings are good and serving size is huge. The main dishes are all good, ingredients are always fresh and everything is cooked... More

I call it this because it doesn't look like much but my goodness the food is very very good! I have eaten Chinese in New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, Florida, etc. I had a Japanese neighbor growing up who taught me how to make fried rice. However, I will always come eat again at this place. The Kung Pao Chicken... More

The building doesn't look like anything special, but based on a friend's recommendation I decided to try it. Everything was fresh and the service was fast. The staff was not very friendly and I would have liked better descriptions of the dishes in order to make a more educated choice. Will likely visit again.

Best in the area! We eat there often! No matter what I've ordered it's been top notch! Service is always good. Just remember a lot of times service is a reflection of customer attitude!
