Hunan Yuan has been in business in the Redwood rd. neighborhood for at least 30 years. I have been a regular customer since the late 90's. The food is authentic, fresh and cooked to order. Everything I have tried is good, but I especially like the braised spicy chicken wings and the Mongolian chicken. Both are served as full entrees... More

We frequently get dinner to go from Hunan Yuan. Consistently very good food. Our favorite is the mu shu chicken. Hint: separate the wraps as soon as you can, or they stick together, but this is generic to all mu shu dishes anywhere. We can call in from the car, and within 10 minutes, our dinners are ready.

This restaurant is just around the corner in Oakland, and I had high hopes that it would prove to be a neighborhood gem. Nothing really wrong with it. Service is excellent and friendly. Food is the standard menu you'd expect to find in a Chinese restaurant. Good for takeout especially.

this is not your normal neighborhood chinese restaurant; it's MUCH better. the entrees we have tried are really good but --- the sizzling rice soup and the appetizers and amazing! the sizzling rice soup is truly a meal by itself -- full of veggies and shrimp and chicken and, of course, the snap/crackle/pop of the rice. i also love the...

Needed a location for group of 24 on a Saturday night. With less than 1 week notice Judy organized with me on the phone and had everything ready. The food was very good, everyone enjoyed.

I love this restaurant . It's always good and len and his crew are so friendly. But lately my eggplant tofu comes to hot and soggy.. Make sure you tell them not to overheat!

Yum. Try the eggplant basil.. When it's not overcooked it's delicious... I like the take out here cause it a little too big inside.
