I’ve been a fan of Hunan for some years now. My wife and I used to eat at their location by the former Schnucks frequently. When they moved the first time to the spot formerly occupied by Bangkok Alley we never made it. Now they are right next to O’Charley’s where Topz Burgers used to be. Their current space is much smaller that the one I was used to.
We ordered an appetizer called that included wings, gyoza, egg rolls, shrimp rolls, and crab rangoons. The wings were pretty inedible. They were burnt and tasted like they were cooked in old oil. My wife and I both took a single bite and put it back on the platter. The one thing that I was completely impressed with was the shrimp rolls. It’s pretty simple. It’s just seasoned shrimp in an egg rolls wrapper, but it tasted great.
For our entrees we ordered Moo Goo Gai Pan (for me), Combination Lo Mein (my wife), and shrimp fried rice (my son). It was part of a lunch special so we got an egg roll and choice of soup. We all chose the Won Ton. (My all time fave.)
The soup wasn’t as good as I remembered it before. They used to put little strips of pork in it and scallions. Now it’s just a huge won ton and broth. Still good once I added a little more salt. My wife was pretty disappointed that she couldn’t get the angel hair noodles for her lo mein. That used to be her favorite dish. What she got did not resemble in any way the dish she used to get.
It still tasted pretty good in my opinion. The shriimp fried rice was, on the other hand, exactly how I remembered it. Very tasty and had some great shrimp in it.
My Moo Goo Gai Pan wasn’t very good at all. It was completely bland. The only part they were generous with was the snow peas which was pretty much all I ate out of the dish.
Overall everyone was really nice. The restaurant was very clean, and the food was presented well. We had fun while there although not everything tasted good. I do encourage you to visit and try it out for yourself. I’m really hoping I visited on an “off” day. I do plan on visiting again to see some improvement.
