I nice sit down place with the automatic teapot, Chinese calendar placemats and extra wide fried noodles. The lunch specials were decent, and I have to add, it was the BEST Hot and Sour Soup I have had in years.

This has been our go-to restaurant for Chinese food for the past 10 years. The food is consistently delicious and reasonably priced, and the service is friendly and prompt. Our favorite dishes include beef and string bean in scallion pancake, shrimp with walnuts (spiced walnuts prepared separately- quite unique!), and off of the authentic menu- which they'll share if you...

We were leaving an appt at Howard County Hospital at noon and were searching for a lunch spot using the Garmin Nuvi. Found one 0.7 miles away. Except that it isn't there any more. Tried again and picked Hunan Legend at random because it was less than 2 miles away in a northeasterly direction which would take us approximately toward... More

Lunch specials are the best in the area. The service is fast. Soup, egg roll and entrée on the lunch special for under $10. How do you beat that?

Very quiet on a Monday night...we've ordered take out before and enjoyed the food so we decided to dine in and experience the restaurant. Good feel, large space and nice decorations. Our server was polite, friendly, kept his distance but efficient. We enjoyed the spicy Hot & Sour Soup. I really liked my Pan Fried Noodles with Beef, Shrimp &... More

We ordered General Tso's and Sweet and Sour Chicken. The food was delivered and it was not very hot. Mind you, it is only a few minutes away. The Sweet and Sour Chicken was a single fried chicken breast cut into long strips that were not bite size instead of individually fried pieces. They only provided a fork so cutting... More

This was the fist time we order here for take out and really enjoyed our food. We were delightfully surprised at the amount of seating and ambience in the restaurant when we went to pick up our food. The Shrimp Spring Rolls, Curry Beef, Chicken Lo-Mein, Fisherman's Net, Lemon Chicken and 1/2 Roast Duck was more than ample for the... More

There are lots of Asian food places in Howard County but we keep returning to Hunan Legend because of their large menu, consistent quality, good menu, reasonably priced. Dining area is nice, carry out service quick and reliable. Very popular place with Columbia/Ellicott City residents. They will adjust orders to your liking. A fun place to do Luna New Year... More

Classic Chinese menu. Has all the basics you would expect. Old school type of decor with really good service both for dining in or carry out.

We used to live near Hunan Legend and for years it was our "go to" place. So after being away for four years we ate there last night and it was exactly the same good quality food. Not the best Chinese food in the border area, but very good food and great value for the money. Their hot and sour... More
