Easily the best Chinese restaurant in West Virginia. I've eaten general tso's chicken in Chinese restaurants in D.C., P.A, Florida, Georgia and elsewhere on the east coast but main kwong's gen tso blows them out of the water.

Imagine chicken with no flavor or spiciness... you have the Szechuan chicken and also the Hunan chicken! Knowing real Sichuan (Szechuan) food, this is extremely unauthentic.
