    Great value

    Just recently got some sushi from this place. Their prices are onpar with other value restaurants in the area. The House Special Roll is my fav, and is nice and spicey. I was pleasantly surprised that the person taking my order asked me which free item I would like (referring to the coupon the front of the menu) --- I didnt even have to mention it.

    Best Kept Chinese Restaurant Secret

    I found out about the Hunan Balcony 18 years ago when I worked in the area. They offered then (as they still do now) an affordable lunch special. The food and service were both excellent. I later treated my father and daughter to a nice dinner there. The Hunan Balcony became our "Family Restaurant" since then. What other restaurant in NY gives you a full course lunch (that you can identify) for under $6.00? The atmosphere is pleasant, the service is excellent, the food is delicious and the value is stupendous (even at dinnertime).

    Best Chinese in the City

    I lived on the UWS from 1981-1991 and went to Hunan Balcony all the time. I've been living in London ever since and have travelled the world, but still haven't found a Chinese restaurant as good as Hunan Balcony. Back in town for a few days and will order from them at least twice. One of the true NYC gems.

    Consistent

    This is good, consistent Chinese food. We order often and have never been disappointed.

    18 Delicious Years at the Hunan

    Came most Fridays from across the river in Jersey from 1987 to 1995. When we moved south to the Jersey shore, I kept coming -- 90 miles each way. It took at least four hours of driving, so we switched from Friday night to Thursday night to avoid the shore traffic. Now it's roughly 1.75 hrs. coming in at rush hour and and 1.25 hours leaving the Hunan at 9:00 pm or so. Yes, there are friends involved. We've been meeting at the Hunan that long and for good reason. You can't get close to this quality food for the price and a whole lot more . The sauces are spectacular. You don't have to go any further than the subtle dumpling sauce and outrageously delicious plum sauce they bring with appetizers. It only gets better from there -- from the beautifully balanced sauces on meat and poultry dishes to the simple, elegant white sauce and garlic sauce (they call it brown sauce) served on vegtables. Those vegtables, by the way, are fresh and perfectly steamed, never mushy. Is the Hunan perfect? Hey, who is? Sometimes the place gets a little noisy, but it's no where near as noisy as, say, the Oyster Bar at Grand Central, and that's small price to pay for among the best food of any kind at anything like the price from Boston to Philly. I'll keep coming until someone makes me stop.

    Food amazing!

    I still have not eaten there but I order in all the time. They have amazing deals if you spend over $10, $20...etc. You should definitely try this place out, best in the area.
