I usually frown at the thought of horrible mall food court Chinese places. All of the food is always dry, subpar and tastes the same. Burbon chicken, sesame chicken being thrust at you on toothpicks, etc. This place is actually not like a kiosk, it is a sit-down restaurant and its always bustling. Wish it was bigger to fit more people, but beggars cant be choosers. The food is terrific. Too often, the brown sauce in most places gets gelatinous if it sits too long, but this place has fantastic sauces that are perfectly seasoned. The beef with mixed vegetables is always a hit with me, and the best part is that they deliver. So when I am at work in Fairfax down the street, I know I can treat myself to Hunan Gourmet. And, they have an online ordering website so it is even harder NOT to get what you ordered. Two thumbs up!

Today we had lunch at Hunan Chinese Gourmet, the food is very good considering it is located inside the mall. Compared to Panda Express and Charlie Chang fast food restaurants that you regularly find in NOVA malls, this restaurant excels in taste. Unlike those mall Chinese restaurants that have pre-cooked food in warmers, their food is fresh and prepared after you order. The serving size is perfect for a single individual. The price is reasonable as well.

We are always in search of restaurants with great noodles and this one fit the bill. The location is a bit unassuming since it is located in the Fair Oaks Mall but it met all of our noodle requirements. The noodles tasted fresh and there were plenty of them. Both of our selections had a generous serving size and both were delicious. My husband tasted both and proclaimed that his broth- the beef noodle soup- was best. I ordered the chicken, shrimp and beef soup and loved it. Lots of bok choy and delicious green onions along with plenty of all three of the protein options. We shared a soda- it was serve yourself from the fountains- and declared the meal a rousing success. Its location within walking distance of the Marriot that we love only made it more certain that we will return.

It may be located in a mall, but this is a good Chinese restaurant. We've tried many in the northern VA area, and this is one of the best as far as both authenticity and taste. Their noodle soups are great with a wide variety of options. We're also really liking their General Tso's tofu of late -- nice texture, good sauce, and just the right amount of spice. Definitely worth a stop -- even if you don't need to shop anyplace else!
