Went with some friends around 8-9 on a Friday night. Sushi was great. Had a Dale's Volcano Roll and Spicy Tuna Roll. There couldve been a little more in the Dale's Volcano Roll. It seemed a little small but still delicious.

Excellent sushi, half price, what's not to like? The chef makes a homemade hot sauce that is not too hot but is incredibly savory. He had an unopened jar and I bought it. I'm telling you, this is delicious. They do have good happy hour deals as well. Worth visiting.

Ordered the chicken & vegetables... tastes exactly as one would expect for typical Chinese. The bar/restaurant was packed on the Friday night I went... Not ideal if you're looking to have a conversation, but an excellent party scene.

I really enjoy the food at Hunan #1. We live nearby and probably use carry-out or delivery about three times a month. Additionally, I have lunch or dinner at the restaurant about six times a year. The interior is "bare," but so are many Chinese restaurants. The prices in general are very reasonable, the lunch and dinner specials are bargains,... More

No one goes to Hunan for the food. People go to Hunan around 10 o'clock at night to get cheap drinks and dance. The staff is nice and attentive, though it gets pretty loud the closer to last call. The food is decent, but I wouldn't go there just to get food. They got rid of a lot seating, so... More

I went here for a happy hour with a group of friends. We met in the very dark back room where there is a separate bar, with plenty of tables and open space for mixing and mingling. Actually, the set-up is nice but it needs to have better light, especially for serving food. The beer on tap is limited and... More

It's like someone appended a dive bar to an "Asian-inspired" (not Chinese) restaurant. The place is dark and the food - well, not terribly good. Went there for Paint Nite with friends and had dinner beforehand, otherwise would have never gone. Plenty of other choices in the area. Avoid if you want something other than barely passable.

Food was not bad, but just average. Place was dark. The Peking duck was not bad. However, service was lacking at the end and then great confusion over payment. Charged table next to me on my card then did a void and then did a bill. Turns out when I got home remembered that it was supposed to be half... More

I wanted some sushi and looking for delivery. While it's not high end, it is certainly a step up from the food court sushi at the mall. Friendly delivery driver and it's been consistent each time I order. I am concerned however that it doesn't seem to be the freshest fish in the sushi. The tuna looks pretty pale. But... More
