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.
