“Solid cheap Chinese.”

Hunan Chinese Restaurant

Reviewed February 12, 2013

I'm not a big fan of Chinese restaurants but this one is in that sweet spot of being tasty/not gross and cheap w/BYOB option. Lots of good options within the menu. The staff is really sweet and this has become a comfortable place for some friends and I to get dinner and linger while having a few beers.

This restaurant is not very close to Nassau Street or Palmer Square. It is down the road past Princeton library and the cemetery but do not worry because the food is worth going that far. The price can not be beat in this expensive town. Their place is clean and you can always find a seat. They do have limited parking in the back of the building. When all the in the center of town good restaurants have long wait times or no available reservations just go there and enjoy some nice Chinese food.

Certain peoples may think that the pricing of the restaurant foods are cheap & not fresh , but it ain't True ! Bcoz this restaurant is small takeout & dining place of around 45- 50 peoples, in sit-in ,comfortable dinner atmosphere, which causal dressing may have dinner too ! Found this nice place from the recommendations of Princeton University's students, whom are frequent ,regular customers there very often . They told me,reasonable pricing,moreover, delicious food,which most students have allowances from their parents! Well, after my dinner up there, I would sincerely recommends this place to everyone visiting Princeton,New Jersey to go for their lunch & dinner, except this restaurant has no delivery & only accept Cash for Takeouts & Dine-In !

The menu has a wide range of Asian dishes. Always an excellent value and the staff is very friendly. Very clean. Good spot for a quiet meal. They have parking in back of the building. Note: this restaurant is very easy to miss. The take-out section is basically the only noticeable part as you drive south from Nassau Street. Just past the large cemetery and well before the medical center.

Off the beaten path, Hunan is a great place to stop in for Chinese/Vietnamese/Malaysian food. One of the cheapest places to eat in Princeton with a very nice atmosphere. They did a nice job renovating this one time take out restaurant (which is still open on the side). They even finished the outside garbage area off in marble! They have off street parking in the rear which is a big plus on the weekends. It is also a BYOB. Shrimp dishes are highly recommended (~$8.25). Cleaned Jumbo shrimp in great sauces, Hunan being my favorite. Great service from Yangkee, who is always there with a smile. 157 Witherspoon.
