    Expensive, common dishes

    I was shocked to find that the chicken broccoli dish cost $12 and the beef broccoli was a $1 more. We also ordered the bubble tea and were highly disappointed with the quality. Both teas of two different flavors were watery, as if if they did not have milk.

    White rice extra

    These money hungry people charge you $1.50 for a little more rice. They purposely give you a lot of sauce so it doesn't come out even with their little bowl of rice. They want .50 extra for brown rice but a buck and a half for extra white. And the bubble tea tastes like water. Go to Pearls on 99th and Amsterdam--they even give you free wine and they don't bust your chops for extra white rice!

    Worth the Trip

    We live in Brooklyn which has no great Chinese (Hunan) restaurants. We travel over an hour to get to HB. Great food, they treat us like family since we have been regulars for two years (they know our names) even though we come every other month or so. If we lived in Manh we'd order in every night.

    fair chinese food

    Ordered take out for 1st time - "Happy Family" was tasty, egg rolls were dry and not fresh. Delivery was almost an hour - rate Hunan Balcony fair. Will not call again - there are better choices on UWS.

    good takeout, bad manners

    I order from here often enough, and always encounter some of the worst phone manners - EVER. However, the delivery is ridiculously speedy, and the food is good enough to not have the bad phone manners deter me from ordering.

    High quality Chinese for a few $$ more

    Hunan Balcony is a bit pricier, but well worth it. Chicken is all white meat, the cooking is greaseless. Not a lot of innovation - but check out the following unusual items: 1) South Pacific Prawns; 2)Zar-Jiang Mein is noodles with meat sauce - once quite common on Chinese menus, now hard to find and HB's take is meaty and good; 3)hacked chicken appetiser - all white meat, great value; 4) dumplings without pork or seafood - be sure to specify "chicken" dumplings. Finally, the service is great - I asked for the Chinese chicken noodle soup with xtra ginger and it came laden with thread-like strips of ginger, what a great cold remedy.

    best chinese food that delivers to inwood

    i always get the general tso's tofu and dumplings in szechuan sauce, though i have had the other vegetarian options and they are good too. this is really the best vegetarian chinese food that you can get delivered in inwood.
