“Great people, food and value. This is a great place that you would otherwise pass up.”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Just a little place in a non-descript strip-mall, unless you knew what was going on inside here you would take a pass. But inside is a clean restaurant serving some really wonderful, authentic Chinese food - and a great value
Our dinner was a terrific experience. Our waitress, from a town in mainland China could not have been sweeter, was extremely attentive and was a great help, as this is not an American Chinese Food Restaurant, we needed some suggestions on what to order and how to eat what we got.
After a wonderful appetizer - some sort of sliced spring roll on a bed of lettuce with special sauces, we had shrimp stuffed eggplant, which was truly outstanding. We also ordered Orange Chicken which was great and a different world from the sweet & sour junk usually served. The serving size of both was really generous; we couldn't finish it all - but they gave us lemon sorbet and we finished it anyway.

“Lunch option”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

Lunch was typical Chinese fare. There was nothing special about it. Hot and sour soup tasted like all the others I have had. The Mo shoo pork was fine but included enough moo shoo for 3 pancakes while only 2 were provided. $0.25 for each extra one. Hot tea and water were supplied at no extra charge. Fried rice came with the meal; steamed had to be requested. The egg roll did not come with hot mustard or duck/plum sauce. They had to be requested. The spoons to serve them also had to be requested. Lackluster would be a good description. Food was ok, but nothing special.

“Gets better every year”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 via mobile

We visited Hunan Gardens for the first time since 1999. We loved it in the 1990's and were pleasantly surprised that they have gotten better over the years. The moo shu pork is fabulous.

The food was excellent, and lots if little touches that made it a great experience. We sat down to tea served at the table, and ended with little complementary sorbets to finish off agreat experience. I would recommend in a heartbeat!

“Authentic Chinese food”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

It's authentic Chinese food. Not the Americanized one. The restaurant itself is very nice, and service very good. The food is just a little salty for my taste.
