After being very disappointed with Peking Buffet which is close to this restaurant I begged my husband to try Hunan because they also offered buffet. Their buffet contains much less as far as options however the quality and taste of the food is 100x better than most other places in the area. The staff was super nice, everything was fresh,...

Not a bad restaurant Was surprised that there were not more people at 4:30 in the afternoon. The restaurant sits back from the main road with easy access. Food was good but we had better. Give Hunan a try.

I had a graduation party at this restaurant in the 1990's. Had to return for a memory. Ate her with two Iowa City friends. Very few people in the restaurant. Meal was good, not as good as I remembered it.

This is an average to good Chinese restaurant. They make their brown sauce sweeter than I enjoy and their egg rolls and crab Rangoon are sub-par. My husband liked his beef and broccoli but overall I was uninspired.

Ordered carry out from Hunan Chinese and was very happy. The menu, and this is the case with most Chinese places, was expansive. So, choosing was the hard part. We ordered Kun Po Chicken and Hunan Beef. Both came with rice. Huge amount and plenty for two to share with a whole meal of leftovers. Total price $20! We will... More

Tasty Chinese food. Healthy portions for what seemed to be a fair price, at least on par for the area. Prior to this trip, my daughter thought the Chinese food made at a certain major grocery store was top-notch. While that grocery store's food can still be very good, she agreed that the Hunan made a superior product. Service was... More

Not enough people realize how good this restaurant is. The food and service are excellent, the prices are very affordable and the restaurant always does very well on the health department inspections. It is the best Chinese food in the area, more people should frequent it.

We were the only ones in the restaurant and I know why now. The food was served on silver platers... Which were placed right in front of my two year old. The food didn't taste very good. The Szechwan Chicken did not taste right..especially for the price. It was disappointing to say the least.
