Many good choices of Asian food. We eat here frequently and have always been pleased. I like tofu and my husband likes spicy Sheswan.

Hang-On is a family-run business and a local institution. You can get a wide range of entrees with a variety of proteins from beef to tofu. Highly recommended.

Went here for a quick lunch. I ordered the Thai Fried Noodles with chicken and my friend ordered the almond chicken. Both dishes were good. I prefer spicier so I added some heat. The food was fresh and both of us enjoyed our meal.

We had never ordered from here before (on vacation). The people seemed very nice, and the Thai entry was well prepared, however, the Almond Chicken was mostly inedible. Unless they used a rubber chicken to prepare this one, it was literally some of the most tough and overcooked fried Chinese food I have ever had. Being a take- out, there... More

Very good lunch. Big plates, tasty, which remind me a previous travel in Thailand and gave us courage for our bicycle ride. Friendly staff, very affordable.

This is good food. Good spice level and I really, really like their giant Egg Rolls. So many places have switches to the itty bitty spring rolls but Hang-On has both. Their entire menu is solid and did I mention the Egg Rolls? It is worth it just to stop and get an Egg Roll for a mid afternoon snack.

Very little sauce, spice and taste. Egg rolls were overdone and not crisp. Overall, everyone in party disappointed. Would I go back, not likely.

We've tried for years to find a decent Chinese restaurant in the Grand Traverse area and we finally found one in Suttons Bay. While Hang-on Express is mainly a carry-out restaurant, they do have a small dining room with 5 booths and a table by the window. The first impression as you walk in is that the dining room is...

I'm a retired airline pilot who has been everywhere and the Hang On Express has the BEST Chinese food I've had anywhere.

We tried it just once. I can't say we were actually disappointed, but we have not been back. First of all, it is mainly a carry-out spot. You can eat there at some tiny tables, but why? Second, the food is no more than average. I guess we have been spoiled by better Thai and Asian food elsewhere for no... More
