The food at Hunan Balcony is consistently better than any other Chinese food place I've had. Their General Tsao's Chicken is possibly the best I've ever had. It's never dry and over done and well worth the three extra dollars over the average price you'll pay anywhere else. That's what I order most, but my girlfriend pretty much orders something different every time. We can say with confidence that the folks over there are well prepared to make everything on the menu with a delicious outcome. Where this place goes above and beyond is their service. The woman who takes orders has the best phone manner of any Asian take out place - EVER. Not only that, but the delivery is always quick and they even take time to call you and confirm the order if they think they got it wrong! If you are looking for a satisfying, affordable, and hassle-free take-out meal in the Harlem area this is the place!

Hunana balcony is great! I go there with my mom and dad and friends all the time! The sesame noodlesand spear ribs are great for appetizers, and the general tso's chicken, seswian beef, and fried rice with eggs are great for main meals. This is suggested for four or five people dining because there is a lot of food in each plate, but bring who you will because it is great!

Have been eating here for years, has been consistently very good for years. Portions are large. Service is fast and accurate will make special accommodations with no grousing or complaint. Reasonably priced. Eating in atmosphere is plain, somewhat crowded, noisy on weekend eves as is to be expected. A neighborhood staple!

I don't eat here that often, but when I do they are one of the few resturants in NYC that actually have chicken dumplings which is very good (boiled and fried), when most chinese resturants have only vegetable or pork. Service is decent and if u deliver it doesn't take too long. It's worth it in my opinion.

I have been to this restaurant 3-4 times.The food is not bad. There was an occasion where I had to wait for more than 25 minutes, although there were only 2-3 customers. Even though, I reminded them to serve faster, I still had to wait another 10 mins and there was no apology. Very frustrated.

I have been eating here for 20+ years and it is very consistent and delicious. My favorite dishes are the shredded pork with garlic sauce and shredded beef schezuan style. I'm not sure where the negative reviews are coming from as the place has been the same for many years. The delivery is very fast too. I have many friends who agree that the food here is good. It is what you expect for the price and then some.
