“Great Old Style Chinese Restaurant!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Hunan West is one of last old style neighborhood Chinese restaurants. From the moment you walk into the restaurant it is like stepping back in time to the days of independent neighborhood Chinese restaurants, from the decor to the atmosphere.

The service is great. The waitresses are always very polite and attentive. They are also very knowledgeable about all of menu items and will quickly answer any questions you may have about any of the dishes on the menu.

The food is excellent, and the menu is truly extensive. One of the restaurant's specialty's is the Crispy Beef Proper. It is the dish that I regularly order when I visit the restaurant, and I have never been disappointed. The Moo Shu Pork and Moo Shu Beef are also excellent.

If you like mixed drinks, I do HIGHLY Recommend the Mai Tai. It is the absolute BEST that I have every had. My father even says the Mai Tai drinks at Hunan West are much better than anything he has had in Hawaii.

“Flavor and Service”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

This is one of my favorite restaurants as it is so close. Servings are large enough to share. Sometimes they are crowded on Friday night but it is hit or miss depending on the time you arrive. It can be pretty loud if they are packed. I hate the back area as it is dark and a bit run down. The food is very good, they also offer their specials which have gone up in price, The eggrolls were good until they switched suppliers and not I won't touch them they are awful. Try the Chicken proper it's great but the cost has gone up to $15 for this chicken dish. The staff is hit or miss, the old timers are great but the new people are not very good at all, you will see what I mean. They close out with a small sherbet and fortune cookie.

This is the best Chinese delivery in the Springfield/Annandale area. Fast service, hot and generous portions.
