There are not many great Chinese restaurants in the Westside, but this place is a hidden gem! They serve delicious spicy Szechwan style Chinese food for reasonable prices. I love their vegetable dishes like Yu Hsiang Eggplant (eggplant with hot garlic and ginger sauce) and Ma Po Tofu.

Always a great place to get Wor Wonton Soup! Hu's Szechwan Restaurant has excellent Szechwan Wontons as well. Most everything is really good and made to order. The "ambiance", well, that is not the reason to go. Go for the food.

While the atmosphere is very "table and chair" the food has been consistently good for decades and is a local favorite. The Kung Pao Chicken is the litmus test for all Kung Pao. Nowhere is better for this dish. They also do an orange shrimp which isn't on the menu but fantastic. Hard to find if you don't know the area but worth it, especially for take out.

On the corner of National and Rose stands a tiny little building housing the most amazing food this side of the Yangtze. Hu's is a family owned hole in the wall that serves up delicious fare for an even more delicious price.

Do NOT leave this place without having the Szechwan Won-Tons: handmade pillows of yumminess filled with juicy meat and tangy fresh ginger. Another must is the Szechwan Shrimp, sweet and succulent with a hint of spicy. Lunch specials and noodle soups keep the place hopping at noon, and dinner service starts at 5:30PM. Stop at Fair Market next door and pick up some beer or wine to have with your meal, or enjoy the bottomless hot tea made fresh in the restaurant. If you're in a hurry, place your order to go, or have it delivered!

This hole in the wall Chinese restaurant is the best in Palms! The service is great and the prices are reasonable. The portions are huge and the food is delicious though a bit on the greasy side, but that's almost to be expected.\r

I've been hunting for a decent chinese place and decided to try this after it appeared on Citysearch's best eats under $20. We ordered a soup, a shrimp dish, a vegetable and a kung pao, all items highly recommended in other reviews.

Mediocre Chinese food. The base ingredients all seemed of decent quality, but the preparation was poor. In general the sauces are too sweet and not nearly spicy enough for Szechwan cooking, with little depth or distinctiveness of flavor.

There's almost always a wait for a table at Hu's, because the food has made a name for itself: fiery Szechuan dumplings, tender kung pao chicken, pungent shrimp with a Szechuan tomato sauce, savory dried-fried string beans with ground pork…
