During my two week stay in Copper Country their Almond boneless chicken (abbreviated simply "ABC" in the menu) just broke my heart. Everyone should try it, it is just fantastic!

We ate lunch here and found the menu very tasty with extras. We had a choice between fried rice and steamed rice. Soup was included and if you ordered the special you also received an egg roll. Well prepared. No complaints.

This place is not about the usual Chinese food fare. You don't get General Tso's Chicken from Hunan Garden. You order the Pork Belly special. You order the Mandarin chicken special. I have tried the other Chinese restaurants in the area and Hunan is the best. And, the place is clean and welcoming. No, it's not Southern hospitality friendly but,... More

We enjoy the food at Hunan, and eat there several times a year. It's about the same as most good Chinese restaurants, with fairly typical prices. We've gotten to know the owners over the years. They are both really nice. If you like Chinese food, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Best egg drop soup I have had a long time. They were out of several items so we were a bit disappointed, but otherwise what we did get was good quality.

We had hot and sour soup, which was nicely spicy and Hunan shrimp and Kung pao shrimp. Both entrees were very tasty. Our server was pleasant and the chef came and spoke to us. We are giving this a very good rating in the context of Houghton, a place that does not have any really good dining options. We found... More

....and that's saying a lot, as we're not that fussy! The egg drop and hot and sour soups were good, but that was it. I had gung pung pork, which was like pellets of rubbery pork that couldn't be cut with the side of my fork, totally inedible. My partner had Kung pao chicken, and that chicken had a very... More

Downtown Houghton, Very conveniently located. The hostess/waitress was very friendly. The food was very good. I would recommend. Serves wine, although I did not try it.
