The food and service at Hunan's can't be beat. My favorite place for asian. Friday and Saturday nights are Sushi nights, expertly done.

“Poor Service”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

We were seated at 12:30 on May 25th, after 20 minutes still had not been waited on but at least 4 tables that were seated after us had their drinks and some food. We asked 2 different servers that came by our table if we could at least get our drink orders taken they kept saying just a few more minutes. Finally a server took orders at the table next to us and the people pointed out that we had been seated much longer than them. Her response was "I don't know where her server is". We left, terrible mentality for at least 2 different servers in the food industry, very disappointed for a holiday weekend.

“Better than Expected”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I were unsure about trying Asian food in Northern Michigan but our meal was pretty good. The start was a little shaky as our Wonton soup was lukewarm. However, our dinners were fresh and tasty and the service was friendly and prompt. Does not compare to big city Asian fare but it is worth a try if you are in Alpena. Would rate 3.5 out of 5 if that was a choice.

“Has potential for being a great place but fails...”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Having eaten at many Asian style restaurants, this one has a great Menu selection to choose from. Dinners priced from 12 to16 dollars. Many places I have eaten are priced 2 or 3 dollars cheaper for this style of Restaurant and Dining experience. They do offer a buffet but my Daughter and I order from menu. Food tasted fine but for the price it was presented poorly. Soup served Egg Drop and Wonton, the wonton soup was great and egg drop was tasteless both serve with fried wonton crackers in a bamboo chip style bowl that looked like someone ran it over in parking lot. Tea served was the bottom of the barrel grade Oolong and tea pot lid had metal stud showing because knob was broken off. As usual inside the pot had that 20 week tea grime build up on side walls. Waiting for Egg rolls to be serve never came. To find out was not included in my $15 Shrimp and Scallop dinner nor any other, it was extra..Ok this can be overlooked I'm not a cheap type guy. Meal was served with white rice that tasted fine and was of great texture, but served in plastic container that had melted lid and looked once again as if it was run over in parking lot. The worse part was the actual meal tasted fine but served on freezing cold plate and everything on the edge was cold and center luke warm the shrimp was small and not divined or butterflied open. So just as I was disappointed the insincere waitress gave bill and just like a fine oil machine presents us with 2 hot wash clothes as to make us feel justified for wasting 40 dollars. If done right it would of be a fine dining experience.

“Good - Not Great”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Good food and friendly staff but nothing to rave about. Hot and Sour Soup was neither hot nor sour. Hot mustard sauce was not very spicy. Food was well prepared but fairly bland.
