One of the worst "Chinese" restaurants I've ever ordered from. Everything was one dimensional and flavorless and a thorough waste of calories. I'm angry.

Hunan Cafe isn't a bad place to get Chinese food, but there are better places in Fort Washington, MD. The food tends to be bland (read: Americanized) with little onion, garlic or ginger. You won't go wrong with this choice, but it won't blow you away, either.

I went here hungry and because the neighboring restaurant that I went to the plaza for was not what I expected. It's really a take out place. You can eat in, and I did, but you order at the counter and they bring you the food. The food is all on styrofoam plates and plastic silverware. So if you think... More

Consistently good food and friendly faces make this our go to Chinese Food restaurant in Alexandria. They have lots of tables in addition to take out and delivery service. Another option for your hotel stay in Old Town.

I was starving and it was 8pm. Had to eat. On the way home I stopped into the Hana Cafe. Large menu and food came out quick. A bit more on the price than I expected but I had leftovers for lunch. They deliver, you can take out or eat in. I'd recommend in that order.

The place was packed during lunch and food was actually good. What i don't appreciate was that they were serving their food in styrofoam so I was very concerned because hot food may melt the foam and digesting it may lead to some health issues.

Did a delivery order and it was not even close to being with the lunch special price of $7.50. There was more rice than the chicken portio. I thought the place would be good as they had several locations, but I was wrong. Will never go back again.

The Patent Examiners special is the best. I also love the taste of the food, I don't think that I've tasted frozen vegetables yet, if they are those are some good frozen vegetables.
