Hunan Taste is trying to bring some upscale Chinese food to NoVA. I think most people will be impressed with the traditional Chinese decor.

We ordered 3 Chef's Specials (http://hunantastemd.com/en/chinesecui...), including Mao's Braised Pork w/ Brown Sauce, Spicy Shredded Chicken, and Boiled Fried Fish.

Mao's pork is red braised, tender and a good home style dish. The spicy shredded chicken is loaded with cilantro (which you may not realize by looking at the picture, and you don't read or pay attention to the Chinese characters on the menu), but if you like cilantro, it's a very tasty dish. The only bad dish is the boiled fried fish. The fish had a weird texture and really didn't pick up any flavor from the sauce. I've had this dish many times at other restaurants (Hong Kong Palace calls it fish w/ vegetable in peppery broth) and never encountered the bizarre texture, it's a little mealy/gummy.

We will definitely go back and try more dishes.
