Hunan 1 in Appleton, WI on College Ave has the best Chinese food in town, maybe in the area. The restaurant is very popular due to food quality and menu pricing, very affordable. I believe lunch menu starts at $4.99. All orders are made fresh right in front of you (if you want to stand by the counter and watch).... More

We've been going here for meals for many years. Convenient pickup or delivery. Pork fried rice is great. Fried dumplings go down easy. We always order General Tso's chicken - spicy!! Enjoy

When my family wants Chinese takeout, we turn to Hunan 1. Our favorite dish is General Tsos Chicken. We ask for extra Broccoli to accompany the entre. The food is good, reasonably priced, and comes with a fortune cookie for dessert.

first time at a hibachi. What a treat and the food was excellent. They had a system in place to keep things moving without feeling pushed.

As usual, some of the best Chinese food is found in little 'hole in the wall' places. It is primarily for take out, but I 'dined in' when I visited. The pros- food is fresh and very well prepared. I had one of the 'healthy dishes' without the msg and sauce on the side - Shrimp with snow peas. It... More

We order from Hunan 1 at least once a month. Excellent hot and hour soup and crab rangoons. I enjoy the pork egg foo yung and the moo shoo chicken. We often order chicken with mixed vegetables from their "special diet menu." It comes with a flavorful sauce on the side without MSG. Service is quick and prices are quite... More

Stopped here tonight for dinner with our son, a Lawrence University student. Had garlic chicken and General Tso's chicken. Both were tasty, hot and fresh. The restaurant itself has ample seating and it is clean and fresh looking compared with other small Chinese places. They were very busy but our food came in a reasonable amount of time. They have...

This is our Chinese take-out place of choice. Tasty cheap food- its hard to beat their prices! I always mix my Generals Chicken with a can of pineapple- adds some fruit and gives me three meals out of one.

Did the lunch special, which was outstanding and very inexpensive $5...and had a lot left over for another meal. Location downtown on College is easy to reach, and they also deliver. Would recommend for good option especially at lunch.
