From what I have heard from individuals I know who have actually spent some time in China, the Hunan Cafe offers an authentic flavor. In general, an authentic flavor may or may not be a good thing, but in this case is. The dishes that are offered by the Hunan Cafe do not suffer from the same heavy and MSG-laiden qualities that frequently characterize bad chinese takeout. They have a large selection of dishes and no dish that I have had there has been bad. Their rating would be a bit lower expect for their prices, which are so reasonable, you have to be stupid not to order from them for chinese takeout.
Pros: Price, authenticity, good food
Cons: Eat-in area not up to par
