I like the food better than the other Chinese restaurants in Blacksburg. We ordered the Bird's Nest, which has chicken, pork and beef with mixed vegetables in a brown sauce served in a bowl made out of deep fried noodles. We also ordered the steamed pork bun. The presentation was beautiful and the pork buns were delicious. There was less... More

This restaurant is located inside the University Mall shopping center, very close to the Virginia Tech campus. There is a lot of free parking. The atmosphere is beautiful inside and it is like travelling to Asia. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The service was very fast. The prices are very cheap. The restaurant specializes in Asian cuisine. The... More

The restaurant is located in a dingy, dark part of a failing mall. Awful, outdated, and ugly atmosphere. Right before entering the restaurant there is a small pond with sad, dying turtles in it. 1) Turtles needs specific light (UVB and heat), these turtles barely even have basic interior lighting 2) Turtles are not slow- tortoises are. But the turtles... More

We like to order from the "Chinese" menu here. One of our favorites has been the noodle soups with seafood, fish balls, wontons, and bok-choy in a nice broth; we usually get chow-fun noodles. Time before last we ordered the same soups, but each bowl was quite different in terms of quantities of each item in each bowl. This last... More

One of my favorites when I moved to blacksburg 35 years ago. Revisited for a nostalgic visit and not the same place. So wanted this to be a good evening but we ended up leaving before we placed our order. Dirty, no atmosphere, and ? Owners children running over the place. There is a niche for a quality classic Chinese... More

I found the seafood overcooked. I did try a few new things they had on the buffet that I wouldn't have otherwise tried. Egg Foo Young and Squid. I didn't care for the fried rice. I never tried the white rice.

Hunan King has long been a popular lunch buffet destination, located inside University Mall. Buffet options are typical Chinese-American restaurant fare - well made but choices are limited. Dinning room is often crowded and single buffet table is congested

This place is great. Their "Chinese" menu noodle soups are wonderful, giving you a choice of chow fun, and other noodles, and different dumplings and won tons and meats and seafood. They are so labor-intensive and authentic that they actually make their own sesame oil; they grind the roasted seeds to extract the oil, right in their own kitchen! They... More

This is a college town, so the food better be good or the business will die. This one "hit the spot". The service was fast and the food was delicious. It seems to be a very popular place with the college kids too.

I used to love this place and it was the only Chinese place I really ate. The last few visits though have been very disappointing. After recommending this place to my mom, she ordered dinner for us only to receive a dinner full of what tasted like burnt garlic. It made the entire meal taste burnt. She called to complain...
