“Best Chinese in Fresno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

After having the Butter Cream Prawns, if you do not agree, something is wrong with you. This is the best Chinese Ever. Reasonably priced and delicious. Try it for Lunch or Dinner and the more people eating the more of a selection you can try. Chinese chicken salad is one of my favorites along with the prawns, yum..

“Best Chinese Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Two locations in Fresno and both are excellent. Wonderful service and exquisite food. The Butter Cream Prawns are favorites. I have not had anything on the menu that wasn't just great.

“Great and not expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

This place has been in Fresno for years but the city moved north and new places seemed easier to get to. My friend and I went back after reading the Hunan had been redone and was expanding.

We chose the original location at Cedar and Herdon { it is at the end of a nook next door to the furniture store} It is small by some standards with a limited menu at lunch but the quality is excellent. I had their signature Spicy Shrimp and my friend the Mongolian Beef. Both were beyond good.

This is now our only place to eat Chinese in Fresno.

“Good Chinese food in Fresno”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

I was in Fresno on a business trip. I decided on Hunan Restaurant based on local online reviews. I got the Hunan Beef, steamed rice, and pot stickers to go. The food was very good. The beef was very flavorful and the pot stickers were great. At $22 the bill seemed kind if high. There was enough food for two meals, so maybe that isn't too bad.

The person who took my order had zero personality and didn't seem to realize he was in hospitality industry. I am not sure if this was a one off situation or if it is indicative of the service provided to diners in the restaurant.

“One of Fresno's Best Hidden Gems”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The original "Hunan" on Cedar is less expensive and less formal (environment) than the Clovis one.

The food is excellent and prices reasonable, though you could get much cheaper Chinese food anywhere else.
