Foursquare Tips

  • Hunan Manor may look like any other Chinese restaurant and the menu has plenty of Americanized favorites, but there are few places outside of Queens that offer the food of Maos birthplace.
  • The specialty here is the cuisine of Hunan, spicy food with all manner of dried, smoked, and pickled meat and vegetables. Get the fish with chili oil sauce and the dried beef with white peppers.
  • Forget about #ramen & let the Hunan Chinese show you how rice noodle is done right (with spicy & sour pickled string beans)
  • If you look for authentic Chinese in midtown east, I recommend Hunan manor & cafe china. Hunan food is also known for spicy, but not Sichuan food. We got crab & lobster here!!
  • $15 min credit charge.
  • Hands down, some of the best Asian food in the area. Try the chicken w. black mushroom lunch special (the free wonton soup is so, so good). The Singapore mei fun is also special. Love everything here.
  • They offer authentic chinese food that is quite tasty but they also have "Panda Express-like" offerings as well. A short walk from Grand Central Terminal.
  • Make sure you spell out your order. I got the wrong order and your lunch order does take time. Pickup is cheaper than eating in.
  • My favorite mapo tofu in the city.
  • Spicy lamb dish was great.
  • Newly renovated and so much nicer than before! I like tofu with baby shrimp, baked cabbage, fish stir fry, and their dumplings
  • General Tso chicken!
  • Small portion for how much they charge!
  • Skip the Americanized dishes at the top of the lunch menu and order the delicious, slightly smokey and not too spicey doubled cooked pork with dried bean curd.
  • Authentic Hunan restaurant! I'd recommend the fish in spicy broth, eggplants, and sprouts dishes
  • If you love spicy takeout this is your place. My goto dishes are Tangerine Chicken & General Tso's Chicken. They will also deliver.
  • Soup dumplings!
  • Lunch specials are about $8.20 without drink or additions. Take out / pick up takes a good 15-20 minutes during lunch so order before you wait.
  • String beans, General Tso's tofu
  • Eggplant with Minced Pork Garlic Sauce - spicy but w/o the burn, this dish is flavorful & benefits from the sauted garlic slices. It is oily so be sure use it to top rice.
