    If you're looking for a great, affordable Chinese take out go-to I would definitely give Hunan Spring a try! My family and I have been ordering from here for over 12 years now and we have yet to be disappointed. We were ordering so often at one point that they began to notice when I changed my hairstyle, so sufficed to say we have been dedicated customers. Prices have gone up over the years but not by much, and regardless of what other reviews say I can vouch for the taste and quality of the food. Personal favorites include Crab Rangoon, Chicken Lo Mein, Chicken with Broccoli, Egg Rolls,... basically everything we order :)

    Absolutely NO! Every time i order from here the chicken taste more like tofu than actual meat. I used to live one block from this place and decided to walk there instead or ordering delivery. Its very small and they have a huge fan blowing in the restaurant, i can only imagine whats being blown into the food. My daughter broke out from the sesame chicken and she is NOT allergic to anything. My Mongolian beef was ok except order it without onions since that is what they fill it with. The chicken fried rice i threw out. once again.... tofu. I would rather spend $10 in delivery fee and tip then order from here agian.

    This is not amazing Chinese. I would not take a trip just to get this food. However, if you're looking for some Fast Food Chinese, this place fits the bill perfectly. The food is cheap, fast, and not bad. It's nothing to write home about, but good in a pinch. If you live in the area, it's worth checking out.

    We have been ordering from here for several years. The food is excellent and the service is terrific. Delivery is fast and the food comes hot. The egg rolls are my favorite.

    Dear fans of delicious little hole-in-the wall places, I'm reluctant to spill this secret. I did glimpse a couple of squeeze bottles of oyster sauce and hoisin sauce, visible deep in the dark farth of the kitchen. But still I was never able to duplicate this taste in my forensic cooking forays at home. So I got to pay them to do it. Just like with making a car. Most other Chinese places rank as public transportation. You are not being charged Chicago restaurant tax, I am sure of it, because of one less chair than where that kicks in. Eat in and you'll always be the only dining customer. Most of their clientele is in take-out, even that's kinda sparse. Women come here from the laundromat a couple of doors down, might as well order a lot of food to eat, when they get sick of the laundromat owner staring at them way too long. Women know what to remedy with food. Other than that, a regular trickle pops in, of the weirdest most dazed and confused looking people who come from a dog pound across the street. These have begun looking like the dogs rather than the other way around, so something's gotta be wrong there, except I don't care about them. Every five star review is really a human review of the owners/managers/servers just as much as in a lesser-star review where they ruin it all. Thus here the nice, tall, and smart looking Chinese gal who is always at the front desk is just ideal for this place. She is reserved, she smiles sparsely and politely at the right time, and not with the kind of a character that seems to reach out to grab you and pet you like a puppy. Just perfect for a place you came to be welcomed, served, and left alone. That gal gets to be your lunch time companion if you happenstance at the right time. She is doing her own lunch thing, sitting there in the customer dining area with a textbook and also an East Coast Living magazine open at the same time. Eat and read. She innately understands every human being's need for their own space, and so she will respond, like a nice human being again, only if you engage her. I am personally reluctant to chat up too excessively a gal who has to catch up with he fav magazine while also keeping up her triple major of Chemical Engineering, Subparticle Physics, and Pre-Med. Or at least that is how I see her. She has short hair. Feminine at moments when needed, and stoic composed the rest of the time. An understated look of inner strength, I would say. She is just the kind of a gal that someone's feminist friends would approve of. But if I dated her, I would not introduce her to any feminists, lest the Mama and the Mamo start re-negotiating the fidelity terms of their relationship, so may each of them be allowed to eat up her delicious food. She let me have some pork sung on top of my food too, when she was putting some on her own rice. She leaves it out in the dining area sometimes. If you see that squarish plastic jar with fluffy brown stuff in it, that's pork sung. Yum. Ask her to avail your own rice bowl with it's ancient goodness. ----------------------------- I seldom, basically never, get to do this. Ever wonder how "some people" read into reviews?: Tim R., of Chicago Illinois says, in the YT thread named "Need friends for yelp lol": " A personal favorite was the review where he basically admits to stalking an employee of a Chinese restaurant and knows when she takes her breaks. Sits and watches her eat her lunch. Fantasizes about dating her. It's kind of terrifying. " Gosh. What can one say? I write em. They read into them.

    If Panda Express had a larger menu, I think you could easily compare it to Hunan Spring. This is clearly Chinese Fast Food. If you were ordering from here to expect something authentic, then it would come as no surprise to me that you were let down. I believe I am a food addict. I try not to discriminate. Hunan Spring leaves me with mixed feelings. First of all, The restaurant seems family owned. Anyone who feels like they have received bad service from this place is right to do so. To be empathetic, I would say that the employees you see working the register or delivering your food are probably not paid what they're worth. I could expand here, but at the risk of anyone thinking that I am forming stereotypes, I am going to leave it alone. The rest of the reviews on here pretty much back up my observations anyway. Aside from what anyone else says, it's decent food. I even think their egg rolls are decent. I've had the following: Shrimp in lobster sauce, sesame chicken, chicken wings, fried squid, Cashew Chicken, and crab rangoon. All of it is decent except for the sesame chicken. It's practically all breading, and it tastes like the orange chicken from Panda Express. The chicken wings, which I had hoped would arrive in a spicy sauce, were just friend chicken wings. Don't bother. The fried squid is my favorite. I think most people might find it gross though. If you have it delivered, then you need to take it out of the box right away. Leaving it in the container will allow it to get soggy. Seriously, open it up as soon as you close the door on the delivery guy/girl. The squid comes with this awesome sweet and spicy sauce that rivals any sweet and sour sauce. I'd almost make the clerks give you a container of that for your egg rolls. If you pick up your order of squid from the restaurant right as it comes out of the kitchen, and you rush it home, it's even crispier. I am pretty relaxed when it comes to these things, but I have to keep it real: One time I did find a thick black hair in my food. I really think the guys in the kitchen are way too comfortable because they are working for family and they don't have to worry about losing their jobs; which probably makes up for the lack of pay. I've even seen the cooks working the kitchen with their street jackets on because there was obviously no heat turned on in the restaurant. Seriously though, they need to keep their hair out of the food. I have gone back since then. I do inspect my food before eating it. I'd advise you to do the same.

    Pleasantly surprised by the delicious fixings this tiny restaurant served up; it doesn't exactly exude the kind of ambiance that says "our food tastes great", but it did. As a *mostly* vegetarian, I started drooling at the sight of orange tofu on their menu, and it more than lived up to my expectations. Add to that some delicious green beans and spicy/garlic eggplant, and I was a happy camper. Entrees were all $6.95, and they even threw in a little container of steamed broccoli. What more could you ask for?

    Great Chinese place, its cheap, staff is friendly and they have outstanding food! I usually get a small kung pao chicken spicy and it sure was plus I ordered an appetizer of fried squid but they called me back saying they were sold out : ( It's my favorite dish there but at least the called right away to tell me. So I substituted the squid for their house crab Rangoon and asked if I can get the dipping sauce for the squid and they obliged. Sometimes the orders take a while because its a small place so you just have to have some patience. 4.5 starts I give it

    i work in the area and have ordered from here regularly over the years. i have never once been disappointed. chinese food tends to get a bad rap, but this place really sets the standards. ive had a wide variety from here, but my favorite is the mongolian beef and any of the egg foo young. they are sensational - great flavor, lots of beef and vegetables, fried rice is good too, the egg foo young is a hearty portion with gravy that is to die for. they have great lunch specials too, all of which include choice of soups or rolls, come with soda, and fried rice, all for about $5/$6. and in addition to all this, the delivery is always very quick and on time.

    It changed management about 5 or 6 years ago so the taste for my favs have changed. However, I do make my specific requests to the kitchen and they always deliver. The Crab Rangoon is just a bit on the sweeter side but that's what makes it delicious, gotta have! The sesame noodle appetizer is a must for us, as well as Green Beans in garlic white sauce(off the menu). I also ask for Sesame Tofu instead of Chicken. The veg. fried rice is good, the Flat Noodle stir fry a bit oily but still yum.

    As a Chinese , I know what americanized Chinese food is, but this is probably the worst I ever had, the only thing they can cook is rice.

    Have been looking for a Chinese place in the area. This is a wonderful hole in the wall. When we walked in the the smells were amazing and only made me more hungry. The crab Rangoon was wonderful. Portions were great and the price was right on. Can't wait to go back.

    Love this place for cheap, last minute meals in the neighborhood, especially for lunch. They cook fast and everything is good! My 2 yr old loves the beef lo mein noodles and I like the kung pao. Typical customer service for these types of small Chinese spots.

  • Mathew C.

    My wife and I ordered delivery last night. The crab rangoons looked like they were under a heat lamp all day, they weren't crunchy at all. There wasn't much crab in them either, it was mostly all an odd, liquidy cream cheese. My moo shu pork was 95% cabbage and they forgot the plum sauce. My wife liked her mapo tofu well enough, though. We probably won't order from there again. Is there a good Chinese or Thai place in Jefferson Park?

  • Tricia L.

    I've finally found THE best in Chinese food! Their steamed pot stickers are heaven! They are made with a ground pork that has been seasoned well and mildly spicy..not just just some bland lump of ground pork. The Mongolian chicken has a perfect amount of heat and VERY flavorful. Their meat entrees actually have meat and NOT just loaded up with veggies! Even though the veggies are a perfect crisp tender texture. The egg foo young is separate from the gravy..so it stays tasty as oppose to soggy. Everything is super FRESH and oh so delicious! I do not like their egg and spring rolls..but a LOT of their dishes are very delicious! I will definitely be a regular customer. I'm addicted!

    I used tolive very close and could stop in here right from the train. I had a taste one night for just fried rice and egg foo young - things I seldom ever order, but it was one of those times I craved it. The counter person was VERY rude saying "the chefs do not like cooking this because it is such a cheap meal, they will nto be happy with this order." Well, #1, i was a prety regular customer there, and my regular bill was never "cheap". #2 I did not know I was supposed to make the chefs happy - I thought I was supposed to order what I wanted to eat. #3 if they don't like cooking it - be one of the only places that don't have it on the menu. I stopped going there after that. The food was not bad, not great - standars, average chinese take-out.

    Pretty good for the price. I've always had delivery only. We order there pretty often and it's cheap with lots of fresh ingredients. My new fav. is the General Tso Tofu (greasy good but in tofu form, :p) They do not have any fish or Chinese vegetable, but overall, the food is decent.

    Okay so my favorite neighborhood (Linn's Garden) Chinese Take-Out closed, so a friend recommended this place... "HUNAN SPRING" Now there will NEVER be a place that has better eggrolls than Linn's, but this place gets the job done when I'm too tired to cook, don't want pizza (my husband could eat it every night, ugh) and craving some good ole' Chinese. Prices are very reasonable. We only get delivery-and it is FAST!! Our usuals are: Beef Fried Rice, Cashew Chicken, Beef Egg Foo Young, and they have an excellent (and healthy) Steamed Chicken & Veggies (no gravy please!). Pretty good Hot & Spicy Soup, also. I do miss Linn's Garden but Hunan Spring has done well as a close second.

    Hunan Spring is an all right place for Chinese food. Wife and I just moved in the neighborhood recently, and have been ordering from different Chinese Restaurants to find a good, decent, close one. And this one fits the bill. It's close, food is okay, delivery to the house was pretty fast, and prices were pretty reasonable. One dish that we liked from our recent orders was the Chow Mei Fun (sp?), which I believe you can order with beef, chicken, etc. The noodles had a nice smoky, wok fired taste. Overall, good food (for what's around), okay service, okay prices.

    We love this place. We probably order from there about once a month - either pickup or delivery. There's really not a dine-in option as they only have a few chairs. The food is tasty, and theirs a wide variety on the menu - thou we usually stick to the following items: The sweet and sour chicken, schezwan chicken, & orange beef. The portions are big enough that we almost always have enough for a second meal from the leftovers. It's our favorite local Chinese take-out food.

    I have been ordering Chinese from Hunan Spring for over 5 years. Very fast delivery, really good egg foo young, polite people. I just wish the egg rolls were better but overall good and inexpensive Chinese food.

    This is a pretty good little spot we work with in walking distance and I will be frequenting this establishment often. This is more of a take out spot, but if It is not busy there are 2-3 tables where you can sit and enjoy some food. I had Mongolian chicken which was very good I suggest you try this instead of the beef.

    So after a night at the circus and my 7 year old niece bouncing off the walls due to a high amount of cotton candy intake I decided we needed to eat something that was 99% sugar. My niece wanted Chinese food which, not my first choice but who is to argue with a girl coming down from a serious sugar high. Being late and confused from the time change we landed at Hunan Spring. I wanted some thing a little lighter and healthier then the typical Chinese fair so I opted for a spring roll and broccoli in garlic sauce. My niece being a 7 year old likes meat on a stick, egg rolls and white rice. I know very healthy but at this point what does it matter. Spring Roll was fried and not very good. My niece only took two bites of her egg roll but devoured the teriyaki chicken. I also had one and although it is fried it was good just a little greasy. The broccoli was perfect just enough sauce and it wasn't to heavy. My niece now sits a little calmer since she has a belly full of white rice and chicken making me one very happy aunt.

    I had lunch today. I ordered the Orange Chicken. It was ok. I also received a egg roll with the lunch. I didn't care for the egg roll, it didn't contain much meat(shrimp or otherwise). I may go back to try a different dish.

  • David P.

    For 5 dollar lunch, you get soup, egg roll or HOMEMADE crab rangoon, a can of pop and chicken, pork or SHRIMP fried rice along with your entree. I highly recommend the Mongolian Beef or Garlic Chicken. This is one of the best Chinese stops around.

  • S. H.

    this place used to be great. but last night we ordered the usual items and they were awful. this place has 'jumped the shark'. egg rolls were 85% celery. shrimp w black bean sauce was mostly onions. this means they are substituting good quality for just cheap ingredients. so buyer beware.

Chinese Cuisine

The popularity of Chinese food in America can be adjudicated by the appearance of China Town in many major cities in the United State of America. The popular trend of ordering or opting for Chinese take away food isn't unknown in America. Chinese take away food comes to rescue when you're too tired from work or too exhausted to cook. No one can resist the temptation of eating spicy noodles, shrimp, chicken, beef or pork cooked in the sweet and spicy sauce. The cooking method of authentic Chinese food is a lot different compared to what is served in America.

Generally, Chinese use dark meat small bones and organs to cook dishes but this changes when you are eating American-Chinese fusion food prepared using white boneless meat cooked with broccoli, carrots and onions. Back in China, the food is less spicy and oily as they favor steaming and braising method for cooking the most popular dishes. So, if you have a taste for authentic Chinese food, then try finding a real Chinese restaurant in the city. You can also try the most popular fusion Chinese food like Pecking Duck, Chicken Feet, Hot Pot, Shrimp Dumpling Soup, Mapo Tofu, Wontons, Chop Suey, Egg Rolls and not to forget Fortune Cookies.

There are not many restaurants in America serving authentic Chinese food. A little research on Restaurant Listings directory can help you locate the best Chinese restaurants in the city. Chinese cuisine is continuously evolving, and you can find a variety of dishes categorized as the food for lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant, vegan, vegetarian, and diabetic friendly. So, if you have a group of friends with different taste patterns, save the hassle and visit the nearest Chinese restaurant in your city.
