Very quiet on a Monday night...we've ordered take out before and enjoyed the food so we decided to dine in and experience the restaurant. Good feel, large space and nice decorations. Our server was polite, friendly, kept his distance but efficient. We enjoyed the spicy Hot & Sour Soup. I really liked my Pan Fried Noodles with Beef, Shrimp &... More

We ordered General Tso's and Sweet and Sour Chicken. The food was delivered and it was not very hot. Mind you, it is only a few minutes away. The Sweet and Sour Chicken was a single fried chicken breast cut into long strips that were not bite size instead of individually fried pieces. They only provided a fork so cutting... More

This was the fist time we order here for take out and really enjoyed our food. We were delightfully surprised at the amount of seating and ambience in the restaurant when we went to pick up our food. The Shrimp Spring Rolls, Curry Beef, Chicken Lo-Mein, Fisherman's Net, Lemon Chicken and 1/2 Roast Duck was more than ample for the... More

There are lots of Asian food places in Howard County but we keep returning to Hunan Legend because of their large menu, consistent quality, good menu, reasonably priced. Dining area is nice, carry out service quick and reliable. Very popular place with Columbia/Ellicott City residents. They will adjust orders to your liking. A fun place to do Luna New Year... More

Classic Chinese menu. Has all the basics you would expect. Old school type of decor with really good service both for dining in or carry out.

We used to live near Hunan Legend and for years it was our "go to" place. So after being away for four years we ate there last night and it was exactly the same good quality food. Not the best Chinese food in the border area, but very good food and great value for the money. Their hot and sour... More

This place is in our neighborhood shopping center and serves up delicious Chinese food from a very extensive menu. We have never been disappointed with our orders which always arrive piping hot and are served by a friendly, accommodating staff. The servings are plentiful and we always have enough to bring home for tomorrow's dinner. The restaurant has a very... More

through no fault of their own, our two favorite Chinese restaurants closed in our town in the not-too-distant past. We were happy, then, when a friend recommended Hunan Legend, in Ellicott City, MD. The restaurant is tucked away in a strip mall, and is charmingly decorated inside. There are many choices in the menu, both for lunch and for supper,... More

This place consistently serves the best Chinese food. The very large menu makes selection difficult because everything is good. We had the House special shrimp (VERY large shrimp, nicely crusted and served with a wonderful clear sauce) and scallops stuffed with shrimp paste (actually a scallop in a ball of shrimp paste, fried and served in black bean sauce. Wonderful!!).... More

In the Dorsey Search Village Center, this Chinese offers the standards but the quality is very good and consistent. Their service is very very good and the owner and servers are very friendly.
