We have eaten several times a year at Rochester's Hunan Garden and have found it to be one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always good, plentiful, and served hot with good service.

Was here with my husband and two boys. Atmosphere was lovely and the service was friendly. My children ordered chicken fried rice, wontons, and egg rolls. My husband ordered lamb and I ordered kung pao beef. My children happily ate up their food. I was excited to dig in as my dish looked quite appetizing. The flavor was good and... More

Every time we come to Rochester to visit Mayo Clinic, we stop here for a very tasty vegetarian meal. This time we both had the spicy and sour soup. Then we moved on to the veggie delight with extra fried tofu in a white sauce as well as noodles with vegetables. They always serve a very large portion on rice.... More

Wow! Such a freshly prepared meal. I ordered the almond chicken lunch and it was the perfect amount, flavorful, and loved the healthy brown rice that accompanies the meal. Friendly staff and fast service. I've lived in Rochester for 8 years and I don't know what took me so long to discover this wonderful restaurant. I will be back!

Not by a long shot. In fact, the other Hunan (the one by K-Mart on Broadway) is head and shoulders above this place, yet it's the best kept secret in town. So please, all you people who love this place, keep eating here while the rest of us enjoy better Chinese.

This is another place we like to stop at when visiting Rochester and the Mayo Clinic. The food is consistently excellent, and the service is quick and accommodating. We really like the attitude of the people who work here.

I bet all the ingredients came out of cans or the freezer. We had the family special for two, was a generic Chinese meal. Oh well.

I met a friend there and was seated immediately since she was already there. We both had the $8.50 lunch special. Lots of food, which also included a cup of soup. I am allergic to shellfish, and they didn't have any problem substituting the crab rangoon for chicken wings. I will definitely be returning!

Thank Kathleen S
