Very generous portions and helpful staff. The owner is always there and very friendly. Food is tasty and suited to the American palate. Go and enjoy.

We recently enjoyed dinner at Hunan's and certainly can recommend the restaurant to others. While there are many choices on the menu -- it's a Chinese restaurant, after all -- we opted for a dinner for two, This included a very generous serving bowl of the entree plus rice (steamed or fried are available; we chose steamed. The dinner also included soup (I got hot and sour and my wife got egg drop) and either crab rangoon or egg roll. I liked the soup, though its serving temperature was a little on the warm vs. hot side. The egg roll was crisp and tasty. Finally, the entree (sorry, its name escapes me) had a wonderful brown sauce with beef, chicken, pork, shrimp, and vegetables. Served steaming hot and yummy. Service is top notch and atmosphere is pleasant.

The Law of Chinese Restaurant Décor never fails: the more décor, the worse the food.

This place is highly decorated.

The hot and sour soup was neither.

Nothing was served at or above 140 degrees, as the law requires. Well, technically the law applies to _holding_ temps, but I don't think the food was up to temp when it hit the plate. Judging by the near-immediate service after ordering, this stuff could not possibly have been made to order.

The General Tso's chicken was not AT ALL spicy, though we asked for extra spicy. The fried rice was brown from all the soy sauce in it. The egg rolls were the best thing at the meal, and they were... passable. The lo mein was cold and greasy and had exactly one green onion in it for veggies.

This place has been in business for thirty years. It's the best Chinese style food we've had in town. That fact is sad, sad, sad.

It's a good thing I left St. Joe 35 years ago when there were NO Chinese restaurants here, or I would have thought this was good.

There is not one Chinese person associated with this restaurant as far as I can tell, and the owners and crew might have had Chinese food described to them, but they have obviously never eaten any.
