After two good experiences at Halong Bay restaurant in the past we were very disappointed by the poor service and food quality during yesterdays visit. The Hot Beef Noodle Soup was watery and the Chicken with Veggies and the Noodle dish we got instead were lukewarm and without any finesse. We will unfortunately not go there again.

This was a really good experience: you just have to watch what you order. This is not your cookie cutter Chinese take out...this is authentic Chinese. The spring rolls are uncooked...not what you usually see. The wonton soup has smaller wontons that taste different. But, it was very good. Egg rolls were light and large. I asked for a special that I like in Southeast Asia that was not on the menu...beef and bean sprouts. No problem and done to perfection. Service was excellent and if an item was not we liked, it was removed from the bill.

I love Asian food! Having traveled Asia quite a bit, I have always enjoyed the food wherever I went in that part of the world and have brought back many cook books.
Hunan Lion, is probably the best Chinese place in St. Petersburg.
Yes it has sushi and some Vietnamese dishes as well, but it is mainly a chinese place.
Sunday Dim Sum Brunch is great. Love the carts with little dishes wheeled out and you pick the variety you want.
The place is clean, staff is friendly, and food is great!
