Craving some hot food, wife and I ate the whole jar of pepper flakes in oil with our meal. After watching sweat roll off me, our waiter sat down at our table and said, "You eat food as hot as we do!" I said, "I sure do and love it." He replied, "That's why you have that little bald spot on the back of your head. The sweat pushes the hair out!" We all had a good laugh, ample Tsingtao and great food. SF sure seems a long way from Wyoming. Pros: Green beans, twice cooked pork, just being there Cons: I'm not there eating right now more

Why eat anywhere but the original Hunanese in America 10/3/2009

davidB Provided by Partner
This is the successor restaurant to the first Hunanese restaurant in America. It, and all the other Henry's in the area, serve identical menus, but I prefer the homestead, still run by Henry's kids. What you'll never find anyplace else: smoked hammmmmm. Fish warning: landlocked province; delicious with fermented bean sauce, but really, not the most important thing to eat here. All the others are either direct but shallow imitations like Brandy Ho's, or Hunanese in name only. The original is still right here! P.S. I always park at night in the lot open right at the corner north of the restaurant on Sansome, no tows yet! (22 years) Pros: Hot & sour beef, Chicken or Eggplant Salad, Marty's Special Cons: parking, fish more

Hunan On Autopilot 11/11/2008

For two years I've lived in Shanghai, China, the city that gathers the best chefs from the China's provinces at its highly competitive dining scene. I had low expectations for this restaurant. Hunanese do not emigrate; predictably, staff at Henry's spoke Cantonese and the whole venue seemed well past its prime and on autopilot. Food was plentiful and dull. No other spice touched Henry's Special Shredded Pork except for soy sauce it was sauteed in. Spicy & Hot Cod Filet was larger than you ever get in China (but that's how you try many dishes in one meal) and devoid of any complexity. In Shanghai this would be called 'home-style' and served in street canteens at 4-5 dollars a plate. Unless San Francisco has a secret gem of authentic cooking modestly glowing somewhere in Chinatown, I'll save my appetite for Chinese food till next visit to China. Pros: Price, Quantity Cons: Cooking more

Best Hunan in the city and it won't break the bank. Quick 11/8/2007

The only place I go for takeout and I often eat in. The food is great, service is great, and price is great. Usually restaurants focus on two of the three Henry's Hunan has all three. Gregory Garver of Real Estate Agent at Brokers USA gregorygarver."com more

Avoid Henry's Hunan 7/11/2006

yumbear Provided by Partner
My first and last time eating here. We heard it was good, but the hype was just that, hype. We mistakenly recommended it to friends from Taiwan, who like Hunan food, but they and my partner and I were so disappointed. We left it to the server to provide the best chicken, seafood and vegatable dish they had, and if that was their best, avoid them at all cost. Every dish was virtually the same, except for the main ingrediant, and each was relatively bland and uneventful. Not the mention the fact that who wants the same basic dish. It was like they were trying to get rid of leftovers. Granted, we did arrive only an hour before they closed, so my suspicions may be correct. In addition, the food was overpriced for Chinese food generally, and especially for such mediocre food. The bottom line? Unless your desperate, skip this place. I don't know if it was ever good, but it is not now. Pros: The restaurant is large and roomy. Cons: Bland, unimaginative and far from good Hunan food, and expensive on every level for Chinese food. There are much places for better Chinese food in San Francisco. more

My wife and I enjoy Chinese food, especially spicy and hot. Hunan serves a variety of dishes that are cooked to order. Main courses we really like are Kung Pao Chichen, Orange Chicken, Hot and Sour Chicken, Henry's Pork, Kung Pao Beef, Curried chicken, Garlic chicken. We usually go before the ballet or opera. Parking is easy at that time and its not crowded. Service is very friendly Pros: food, service, value Cons: ambience more

The BEST 2/4/2004

I have been coming to this place since I was born and have never been disappointed! Henry's is BY FAR the most fantastic Chinese food I've ever had and I compare all other Chinese to it, and they all fail miserably. Highly recommend the dumplings, onion cakes, and garlic chicken. Pros: delicious, inexpensive, large parties welcome more
