I'm not sure if this is ongoing already, but example is usually when something has shrimp, pork or some kind of meat in it, you can end up taste something bad(or something smell bad in it); I bumped into this situation once recently when I ordered their take-out, and while I was dinning in the restaurant, I have heard at least 2 tables of customer complain about such issue to the waitress, the waitress/waiter will of course take that dish away and offer an excuse; either way, I think this is already more than enough to be a problem of Hunan. As food business, I believe fresh preserve measure is a very important factor, since if this measure is not perform well, it can lead many seriousness such as health problem and such. As a matter of fact, I think it's unacceptable to even have such problem in a restaurant, any restaurant with that problem needs to be shut down, but that's just me. So, I'm not sure if Hunan is short on money so they start to use expired food material to save, they're just slacking off, don't care, or whatever it is, this is something that someone needs to be aware of! --["Users/Cyclonus"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hunanhttp://daviswiki.org/Hunan2014-07-10 14:57:36CyclonusComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hunan<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 153: </td> <td> Line 153: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2014-07-10 15:57:36'' [[nbsp]] The food is good. However, as the Charges section stated, seem like the minor charge annoyance still exists. I'm not sure if it's because the cashier can't remember the price right, or they purposely just do a little extra charge for their own benefit. If it's for their benefit and greed it's almost like stealing, just imagine every time when your charge should be 15.14, they charge you 15.2, I guess a little amount, they think you won't notice, but how about after 5 or 10 times, bad for business. Then sometime, when order To-Go, it says 10% off, but they just take out the tax charge and consider that as 10% off, hello, Davis tax rate is 8%, not 10%, see stealing right there. I guess everybody resorts to all kind of way to gain money now a day.

Although annoying, this practice is common in some restaurants. When authorizing your card, the restaurant places a hold for an estimated price, before the customer indicates how much tip they are leaving on the receipt. The charge should be corrected in a few days when the final transactions are submitted by the restaurant. Before launching a complaint, be sure you waited a few days before checking your bank statement.<br> + <br> + <br> + [[Comments]]<br> + <br> + * ["/2005 Reviews" Reviews from 2005] ~ 14 comments<br> + * ["/2006 Reviews" Reviews from 2006] ~ 6 comments<br> + * ["/2007 Reviews" Reviews from 2007] ~ 29 comments<br> + * ["/2008 Reviews" Reviews from 2008]<br> + <br> + <br> + ------<br> + ''2009-01-01 14:14:33'' [[nbsp]] The Hunan is awesome! I am a big fan of their Hunan Beef and their Honey walnut shrimp. I prefer to go for Lunch because they have their Happy Luncheon where you get a main entree, side of chow mien (which is so good), side of rice (fried or steamed) and a cream cheese wonton. The best part though is the soup included in the luncheon special. I am a big fan of their tasty soups, oh and the salad is great too. I can never quite decide on soup or salad so I usually just get a salad as well :) Dinner isn't too bad of a deal either as they have a similar option to lunch. Overall the Hunan is prob. some of the best chinese I have had. GO TRY IT! --["Users/hazeleyes16"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-02-09 03:10:37'' [[nbsp]] I love coming here for lunch on MWF because they have hot and sour soup on these days. For $6, you can quickly get a large meal. Although everything taste pretty similar, I still think the variety of items you get is worth it. Seems like people complain about customer service since there's only a few people serving a bunch of tables, but as long as I get to order and get my food on quickly, I'm happy. I'd rather have them leave me alone while I'm eating anyway. They do refill your water often. This is my favorite Chinese place for lunch! --["Users/TonyaNN"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-02-14 16:02:01'' [[nbsp]] I think that while the prices for lunch are really good, the level of customer service (or lack thereof) was just too terrible to warrant another trip back. I really only go for the "crab" meat fried wontons but I think from now on I'll just get it to go. I had to wait for the host to even bother looking up from his newspaper to get seated and the waitress started walking away before we were even done ordering. When our food got to the table, we realized they messed up half of our order. Service this terrible didn't even deserve the 35 cents I left. The quarter could have been put to better use doing laundry! --["Users/AliceW"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-02-21 18:57:47'' [[nbsp]] The worst customer service I have ever received at a restaurant --["Users/Jtom23"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-03-01 20:58:14'' [[nbsp]] I would only go for their cheap lunches. As many have mentioned, their service is below par... But then again, how much more can you expect from a 5 dollar lunch. --["Users/renee415"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-03-08 16:02:09'' [[nbsp]] Not crazy about the food here, but eh...<br> + --["Users/strawberry"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-03-08 16:47:10'' [[nbsp]] In short: If you are willing to endure bad service for great (albeit Americanized) cheap food, this is the place for you. I went last night as one of a party of five, including some non-students. We had to wait for about five minutes, but that wasn't a problem. The waiter took our order, we waited for about thirty minutes with not a trace of food, not even the soup we'd ordered. Meanwhile, two parties that had been seated after us had been served. We flagged down a waitress, who told us very promptly that our waiter had left our order in his pocket and forgot to place it- interesting that she knew this and didn't bother to tell us. Our waiter came back to our table, offering us free soda about five times before he finally got the hint and walked away. When he brought the food out about fifteen minutes later, he had the order wrong. The food itself was excellent, though. MAJOR HINT HERE: If you order something with meat and vegetables (e.g. Mongolian Beef, Sweet and Sour Shrimp), they seriously skimp on the meat and put in as many veggies as they can, so ask for no veggies if you know you like Mongolian Beef and lots of it. We had planned not to tip, but one of my friends felt bad and left three dollars, about 7% of our $45 bill. Hopefully that got the point across. The food is good and so are the prices, but the service is awful and I feel like we got the short end of the stick mainly because we are undergrads and they think we'll wait for anything. --["Users/acparsons"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-04-10 15:26:12'' [[nbsp]] While the food was great, this place EASILY had the worst service of any restaurant that I've been to since living in Davis. When my friend and I were seated we waited 10 minutes to get just water and menus, which were only given to us upon request. I requested tea as well, and they brought 1 cup for 2 people. The food came out in an average amount of time and tasted good. After we were done and went to went to pay for the meal, we requested that the check be split. The person working the register said..."I guess" and then proceeded to lecture us on how hard we were making his job, and that when we "got out into the real world" we would understand this. Both my friend and I have worked in the restaurant industry for a number of years and understand that it takes no more than 30 seconds to split a two person check. It was almost enough to cause me to go back in and remove the tip from the table.<br> + <br> + Long story short, if you want the food, get take out, because the customer service is absolutely horrible. --["Users/davisreviewer"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-04-18 15:18:43'' [[nbsp]] Orange chicken. OMG so good. --["Users/CodyDuncan"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-04-26 18:37:37'' [[nbsp]] A few simple things to remember here - first, don't expect great service when your meal costs $5. Second, short of you witnessing the waiter spit in your food, NEVER omit a tip (and 7% might as well be 0%) - this will only make service worse. Last, remember: the food is cheap. They don't make their money splitting checks. They make them by turning tables. Although the cashier might gripe a little, I've never experienced true rudeness from any of the staff. Like most servers, they're probably overworked and under-appreciated. Just my two cents, FWIW. --["Users/BigRedGiraffe"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-05-04 16:20:06'' [[nbsp]] Good food with good prices.

However, they're just the fried wonton wrappers. They should've stated that in their menu. --["Users/thtly"]<br> + <br> + * I always was under the impression that fried wontons were just the wrapper, anyways.

However, I do love their lunch specials. --["Users/BryceH"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-07-24 10:14:30'' [[nbsp]] The new location is a bit nicer, and oddly enough, the host and waitress (who I think are the owners?) were more friendly here than at the previous location. The food quality has gone downhill, though, which is sad because it was already deliciously crappy and cheap haha. I wouldn't even pay the ridiculously cheap $6.50 or whatever it is now. The last couple of times I've been there (new and old location) the noodles tasted weird. And for some reason, whenever I've ordered at night, the food has given me a huge stomach ache (but that's never really happened during the afternoon). My friend and I have discussed that maybe they use the same oil all day and so by dinner time it's really dirty and gross. --["Users/Kiran"]<br> + ------<br> + "2009-07-28" Let me start off by saying that if you haven’t tried Hunan restaurant, then your truly missing out! Hunan offers some of the best quality Chinese food in the city of Davis, and at a reasonable cost. I am always looking to try new places to eat in Davis, and lets face it, as a college student, money doesn’t always come so easily.<br> + <br> + Hunan is known for having some of the best-valued lunch specials in Davis. They offer lunch specials for just $6.50! As I skimmed over the lunch special section of the menu, I couldn’t choose a dish. There were so many options to choose from. One second I felt like having the general chicken, the next second I was craving the sesame chicken! Finally, I decided on the sesame chicken, with half chow mein and half white rice.<br> + <br> + After the waiter took my order, I was given a pot of hot tea. I have never tried the tea before, but it was rather tasty. The herbal aroma and taste from the tea really sets you in a great mood for the meal. Hunan also gives you a salad as part of the lunch special. I was rather surprised that they offered a side along with the main course and tea. Although the salad didn’t appear to be anything special, it was very tasty. They serve iceberg lettuce, with honey mustard dressing. The honey mustard dressing has a nice sweet and tangy taste to it. Before I even finished my salad, my food had arrived. The service here is quite fast! The meal included a crab won ton, which was my first time having any type of seafood. I fell in love with these won tons. They were so moist and juicy, and when dipping them in the sweet and sour sauce, they were had a very authentic Chinese (Umami) taste. As I began to eat the main course, the chow mein was very tasty, and not too oily. The sesame chicken was cut into thin and crisp slices, and was very tender. The chicken was very tangy and had moderate spice to it. The white rice was simply as any white rice would be expected; it complimented the rest of the meal very well. If you like your food spicy, I recommend adding some of the chili sauce found on the table, which really brings the food to life. Overall, the food had a very authentic taste to it.<br> + <br> + Lastly, the service here at Hunan is very good. The waiter, although she seemed to be rushing a little, was very prompt to replace my dirty plate, and constantly made sure my glass of water was always full. --["Users/simranhundal"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-09-06 21:28:55'' [[nbsp]] This place has horrible service.

We received just that. The soup I got before my meal was quite tasty, i think it was eggflower soup? Anyways, it looked a lot better than my bf's salad he chose. Our entree's were served about 10 minutes after ordering, not bad! The food itself wasn't bad, I was surprised, for the price i'm expecting it all to taste the same but it didn't. I had the lemon chicken, it was tasty but had too much lemon sauce.

Back then, a huge plate of good quality food for $5 (the happy luncheon) was a godsend. The price has gone up to around $6 since then, and I'm surprised they still manage to keep it that low. The Hunan staff are some of the hardest working people I've ever seen. No matter what time of day or day of the week I show up, I always see the same people working. Sure, they aren't all sparkly sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns when they see you... more like sleep deprivation, sore feet, and nicotine withdrawal. That being said, in nearly ten years of patronage I have never gotten sick, I've always enjoyed the food, and I've sampled a very large portion of their menu. I can see how some people might take exception to their customer service, but I go to Hunan for their cheap, reliable, and very tasty food. Yes, there are times I have to wait a while for my food to arrive, but never so long that I don't feel like it was worth the wait when it's in front of me.

I must say the fried rice was okay, the chow mein surprisingly good even though it was just noodles (the chow mein I am familiar with has sprouts in it as well?). I had the crispy honey walnut shrimp and was disappointed in the amount of shrimp I got. I only got maybe 8 of them. Probably will not order that dish again, but will go back if I want Chinese food, although this is a tough rival to Silver Dragon, where I feel you get much bigger portions. --["Users/redbike"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-06-06 13:56:12'' [[nbsp]] I've eaten here so many times in the last two years that I've lost track. Sesame chicken is my go-to because it's consistently good and the sauce is awesome with everything it leaks into (ie rice and noodles). Lemon chicken, walnut chicken, and general chicken are also safe ventures. I'm overwhelmingly guilty of being part of the "large table of college students" being rambunctious and bordering on obnoxious. Surprised they still tolerate us (though we do bring fairly consistent patronage and usually end up seated away from the room of more normal people). Don't think I've ever eaten there at the beginning of the lunch hour - usually near the end, when there are fewer people and service is faster. The staff is polite but usually rushed. They're well-seasoned with ringing up a split check by now, so groups of ten have never been a problem.<br> + <br> + Not really a restaurant to bring your family if you want to show them the fine-dining side of Davis. The lunch hour attracts more of the starving broke student ilk. But overall, I'm always happy with the price of the meal compared to its quality and quantity (I have a black hole where a stomach should be but most of the people I eat with will box up half of their food for later). My "worst" experience yet has probably been my forgetting to ask for a pair of chopsticks and having to eat with a fork (though it does say something about server scarcity). --["Users/JaniceW"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-07-30 02:12:13'' [[nbsp]] this was my 2nd time eating here. Got the braised whole fish again and it was pleasant just like the first time, if you like whole braised fish that is. It's actually quite tasty. I also had the mixed veggie with tofu, pork with black mushrooms and seaweed egg flower soup.<br> + <br> + I didn't know that the usual seaweed egg flower soup is dark in color like there's soy sauce added to the soup base. I thought it's usually cooked in a lighter broth with the addition of starch for its thickened consistency. The soup is ok but lost a lot of that seaweed aroma/flavor.<br> + <br> + The braised fish was decent. With it's crunchy skin and moist white meat, it was quite pleasant.<br> + <br> + The mixed veggie with tofu was disappointing because the veggies tasted old and none of it tasted fresh. The aged veggie taste was masked by the sauce that flooded the bottom of the plate. But for just a little over 6 bucks, i can't really complain but i wish they still used fresher ingredients considering Davis is pretty much a farm town.<br> + <br> + The Pork with black mushrooms looks almost identical to the plate of mixed veggies. The only difference is that there's pork, black mushrooms and a few other veggies not in the other dish. Other than that, it all looks the same with the same sauce.<br> + <br> + Service was actually quite decent with a friendly staff but due to the quality of food, I will not return. I believe that even if a restaurant is not as expensive, they can still use fresher ingredients to make a pleasing meal. sadly to say, I will no longer return --["Users/C.Ling"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-08-29 15:39:33'' [[nbsp]] Hunan is the best.

Most chicken and beef selections cost between $5.00 and $5.25. The soup changes from day to day - it's egg flower soup on Tuesdays/Thursdays and hot &amp; sour soup on Monday/Wednesday/Friday. The lunch environment is somewhat informal. Almost any given day you will find a large group of college students around one of the larger round tables laughing and having a good time.

I am a big fan of their Hunan Beef and their Honey walnut shrimp. I prefer to go for Lunch because they have their Happy Luncheon where you get a main entree, side of chow mien (which is so good), side of rice (fried or steamed) and a cream cheese wonton. The best part though is the soup included in the luncheon special. I am a big fan of their tasty soups, oh and the salad is great too. I can never quite decide on soup or salad so I usually just get a salad as well :) Dinner isn't too bad of a deal either as they have a similar option to lunch. Overall the Hunan is prob. some of the best chinese I have had. GO TRY IT! --["Users/hazeleyes16"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-02-09 03:10:37'' [[nbsp]] I love coming here for lunch on MWF because they have hot and sour soup on these days. For $6, you can quickly get a large meal. Although everything taste pretty similar, I still think the variety of items you get is worth it. Seems like people complain about customer service since there's only a few people serving a bunch of tables, but as long as I get to order and get my food on quickly, I'm happy. I'd rather have them leave me alone while I'm eating anyway. They do refill your water often. This is my favorite Chinese place for lunch! --["Users/TonyaNN"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-02-14 16:02:01'' [[nbsp]] I think that while the prices for lunch are really good, the level of customer service (or lack thereof) was just too terrible to warrant another trip back. I really only go for the "crab" meat fried wontons but I think from now on I'll just get it to go. I had to wait for the host to even bother looking up from his newspaper to get seated and the waitress started walking away before we were even done ordering.

I went last night as one of a party of five, including some non-students. We had to wait for about five minutes, but that wasn't a problem. The waiter took our order, we waited for about thirty minutes with not a trace of food, not even the soup we'd ordered. Meanwhile, two parties that had been seated after us had been served. We flagged down a waitress, who told us very promptly that our waiter had left our order in his pocket and forgot to place it- interesting that she knew this and didn't bother to tell us. Our waiter came back to our table, offering us free soda about five times before he finally got the hint and walked away. When he brought the food out about fifteen minutes later, he had the order wrong. The food itself was excellent, though. MAJOR HINT HERE: If you order something with meat and vegetables (e.g. Mongolian Beef, Sweet and Sour Shrimp), they seriously skimp on the meat and put in as many veggies as they can, so ask for no veggies if you know you like Mongolian Beef and lots of it. We had planned not to tip, but one of my friends felt bad and left three dollars, about 7% of our $45 bill. Hopefully that got the point across. The food is good and so are the prices, but the service is awful and I feel like we got the short end of the stick mainly because we are undergrads and they think we'll wait for anything. --["Users/acparsons"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-04-10 15:26:12'' [[nbsp]] While the food was great, this place EASILY had the worst service of any restaurant that I've been to since living in Davis. When my friend and I were seated we waited 10 minutes to get just water and menus, which were only given to us upon request. I requested tea as well, and they brought 1 cup for 2 people. The food came out in an average amount of time and tasted good. After we were done and went to went to pay for the meal, we requested that the check be split. The person working the register said..."I guess" and then proceeded to lecture us on how hard we were making his job, and that when we "got out into the real world" we would understand this. Both my friend and I have worked in the restaurant industry for a number of years and understand that it takes no more than 30 seconds to split a two person check. It was almost enough to cause me to go back in and remove the tip from the table.<br> - <br> - Long story short, if you want the food, get take out, because the customer service is absolutely horrible. --["Users/davisreviewer"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-04-18 15:18:43'' [[nbsp]] Orange chicken. OMG so good. --["Users/CodyDuncan"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-04-26 18:37:37'' [[nbsp]] A few simple things to remember here - first, don't expect great service when your meal costs $5. Second, short of you witnessing the waiter spit in your food, NEVER omit a tip (and 7% might as well be 0%) - this will only make service worse. Last, remember: the food is cheap. They don't make their money splitting checks. They make them by turning tables. Although the cashier might gripe a little, I've never experienced true rudeness from any of the staff. Like most servers, they're probably overworked and under-appreciated. Just my two cents, FWIW. --["Users/BigRedGiraffe"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-05-04 16:20:06'' [[nbsp]] Good food with good prices.

The food quality has gone downhill, though, which is sad because it was already deliciously crappy and cheap haha. I wouldn't even pay the ridiculously cheap $6.50 or whatever it is now. The last couple of times I've been there (new and old location) the noodles tasted weird. And for some reason, whenever I've ordered at night, the food has given me a huge stomach ache (but that's never really happened during the afternoon). My friend and I have discussed that maybe they use the same oil all day and so by dinner time it's really dirty and gross. --["Users/Kiran"]<br> - ------<br> - "2009-07-28" Let me start off by saying that if you haven’t tried Hunan restaurant, then your truly missing out! Hunan offers some of the best quality Chinese food in the city of Davis, and at a reasonable cost. I am always looking to try new places to eat in Davis, and lets face it, as a college student, money doesn’t always come so easily.<br> - <br> - Hunan is known for having some of the best-valued lunch specials in Davis. They offer lunch specials for just $6.50! As I skimmed over the lunch special section of the menu, I couldn’t choose a dish. There were so many options to choose from. One second I felt like having the general chicken, the next second I was craving the sesame chicken! Finally, I decided on the sesame chicken, with half chow mein and half white rice.<br> - <br> - After the waiter took my order, I was given a pot of hot tea. I have never tried the tea before, but it was rather tasty. The herbal aroma and taste from the tea really sets you in a great mood for the meal. Hunan also gives you a salad as part of the lunch special. I was rather surprised that they offered a side along with the main course and tea. Although the salad didn’t appear to be anything special, it was very tasty. They serve iceberg lettuce, with honey mustard dressing. The honey mustard dressing has a nice sweet and tangy taste to it. Before I even finished my salad, my food had arrived. The service here is quite fast! The meal included a crab won ton, which was my first time having any type of seafood. I fell in love with these won tons. They were so moist and juicy, and when dipping them in the sweet and sour sauce, they were had a very authentic Chinese (Umami) taste. As I began to eat the main course, the chow mein was very tasty, and not too oily. The sesame chicken was cut into thin and crisp slices, and was very tender. The chicken was very tangy and had moderate spice to it. The white rice was simply as any white rice would be expected; it complimented the rest of the meal very well. If you like your food spicy, I recommend adding some of the chili sauce found on the table, which really brings the food to life. Overall, the food had a very authentic taste to it.<br> - <br> - Lastly, the service here at Hunan is very good. The waiter, although she seemed to be rushing a little, was very prompt to replace my dirty plate, and constantly made sure my glass of water was always full. --["Users/simranhundal"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-09-06 21:28:55'' [[nbsp]] This place has horrible service.

Back then, a huge plate of good quality food for $5 (the happy luncheon) was a godsend. The price has gone up to around $6 since then, and I'm surprised they still manage to keep it that low. The Hunan staff are some of the hardest working people I've ever seen. No matter what time of day or day of the week I show up, I always see the same people working. Sure, they aren't all sparkly sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns when they see you... more like sleep deprivation, sore feet, and nicotine withdrawal. That being said, in nearly ten years of patronage I have never gotten sick, I've always enjoyed the food, and I've sampled a very large portion of their menu. I can see how some people might take exception to their customer service, but I go to Hunan for their cheap, reliable, and very tasty food. Yes, there are times I have to wait a while for my food to arrive, but never so long that I don't feel like it was worth the wait when it's in front of me. Concerning the previous comment about rats: Isn't there flawed logic in saying that you'll never eat at Hunan's new location because rats were allegedly seen in the vacated previous location of the restaurant?<br> - <br> - --["Users/Wajinki"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-05-28 15:32:17'' [[nbsp]] The lunch specials have gone up $.50. --["Users/strawberry"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-06-02 14:45:10'' [[nbsp]] food is nice.

Sesame chicken is my go-to because it's consistently good and the sauce is awesome with everything it leaks into (ie rice and noodles). Lemon chicken, walnut chicken, and general chicken are also safe ventures. I'm overwhelmingly guilty of being part of the "large table of college students" being rambunctious and bordering on obnoxious. Surprised they still tolerate us (though we do bring fairly consistent patronage and usually end up seated away from the room of more normal people). Don't think I've ever eaten there at the beginning of the lunch hour - usually near the end, when there are fewer people and service is faster. The staff is polite but usually rushed. They're well-seasoned with ringing up a split check by now, so groups of ten have never been a problem.<br> - <br> - Not really a restaurant to bring your family if you want to show them the fine-dining side of Davis. The lunch hour attracts more of the starving broke student ilk. But overall, I'm always happy with the price of the meal compared to its quality and quantity (I have a black hole where a stomach should be but most of the people I eat with will box up half of their food for later). My "worst" experience yet has probably been my forgetting to ask for a pair of chopsticks and having to eat with a fork (though it does say something about server scarcity). --["Users/JaniceW"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-07-30 02:12:13'' [[nbsp]] this was my 2nd time eating here. Got the braised whole fish again and it was pleasant just like the first time, if you like whole braised fish that is. It's actually quite tasty. I also had the mixed veggie with tofu, pork with black mushrooms and seaweed egg flower soup.<br> - <br> - I didn't know that the usual seaweed egg flower soup is dark in color like there's soy sauce added to the soup base. I thought it's usually cooked in a lighter broth with the addition of starch for its thickened consistency. The soup is ok but lost a lot of that seaweed aroma/flavor.<br> - <br> - The braised fish was decent. With it's crunchy skin and moist white meat, it was quite pleasant.<br> - <br> - The mixed veggie with tofu was disappointing because the veggies tasted old and none of it tasted fresh. The aged veggie taste was masked by the sauce that flooded the bottom of the plate. But for just a little over 6 bucks, i can't really complain but i wish they still used fresher ingredients considering Davis is pretty much a farm town.<br> - <br> - The Pork with black mushrooms looks almost identical to the plate of mixed veggies. The only difference is that there's pork, black mushrooms and a few other veggies not in the other dish. Other than that, it all looks the same with the same sauce.<br> - <br> - Service was actually quite decent with a friendly staff but due to the quality of food, I will not return.

Back then, a huge plate of good quality food for $5 (the happy luncheon) was a godsend. The price has gone up to around $6 since then, and I'm surprised they still manage to keep it that low. The Hunan staff are some of the hardest working people I've ever seen. No matter what time of day or day of the week I show up, I always see the same people working. Sure, they aren't all sparkly sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns when they see you... more like sleep deprivation, sore feet, and nicotine withdrawal. That being said, in nearly ten years of patronage I have never gotten sick, I've always enjoyed the food, and I've sampled a very large portion of their menu. I can see how some people might take exception to their customer service, but I go to Hunan for their cheap, reliable, and very tasty food. Yes, there are times I have to wait a while for my food to arrive, but never so long that I don't feel like it was worth the wait when it's in front of me. Concerning the previous comment about rats: Isn't there flawed logic in saying that you'll never eat at Hunan's new location because rats were allegedly seen in the vacated previous location of the restaurant?<br> + <br> + --["Users/Wajinki"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hunanhttp://daviswiki.org/Hunan2010-05-08 20:12:02VeroComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hunan<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 105: </td> <td> Line 105: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-05-08 21:12:02'' [[nbsp]] came here with a friend.

I had the lemon chicken, it was tasty but had too much lemon sauce.

I have never tried the tea before, but it was rather tasty. The herbal aroma and taste from the tea really sets you in a great mood for the meal. Hunan also gives you a salad as part of the lunch special. I was rather surprised that they offered a side along with the main course and tea. Although the salad didn’t appear to be anything special, it was very tasty. They serve iceberg lettuce, with honey mustard dressing. The honey mustard dressing has a nice sweet and tangy taste to it. Before I even finished my salad, my food had arrived. The service here is quite fast! The meal included a crab won ton, which was my first time having any type of seafood. I fell in love with these won tons. They were so moist and juicy, and when dipping them in the sweet and sour sauce, they were had a very authentic Chinese (Umami) taste. As I began to eat the main course, the chow mein was very tasty, and not too oily. The sesame chicken was cut into thin and crisp slices, and was very tender. The chicken was very tangy and had moderate spice to it. The white rice was simply as any white rice would be expected; it complimented the rest of the meal very well. If you like your food spicy, I recommend adding some of the chili sauce found on the table, which really brings the food to life.

If you're looking for a place to eat quickly w/o caring about good customer service, then Hunan may be the place for you. My boyfriend and I used to go eat there pretty frequently although we felt that the customer service sucked, but the food was cheap so we figured that everything evened out in the long run. However, after being overcharged about a dollar on our credit card for tip, we decided to never go there again. What I like to do, is leave cash tip on the table while charging the card the exact amount that was due. I don't understand where these people get that they deserve more tip and to scam people's credit card for it. I haven't been back there for months and I recommend going to Noodle Express or Jade Garden. --["Users/SmartenU"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-01-17 15:57:45'' [[nbsp]] It's my first time eating here since I thought I need a new change of chinese restaurants.

Our bill was added incorrectly and tax seemed much higher as well. Do not tip these criminals. In fact, don't even go here. How this resturant got picked as #1 for Davis' Best is beyond me. Service sucks. Portions are INCREDIBLY TINY for dinner. If you read this comment, trust me and don't even think about trying Hunans. I'm also never going to trust Davis' Best again. This place is a rip-off joint. --["Users/soohoo"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-03-05 02:44:50'' [[nbsp]] First off, let me say I love Hunan. My favorite chinese food in davis with sesame chicken to die for. Now, onto this credit card business - I finally figured it out! Like many on here I too thought I was being overcharged because when I would get take out I wouldn't leave a tip on the cc slip, but on my bank statement online my total would always be exactly 20 percent more. This seems to be the case for everyone, since, as mr "hunansucks" states above his total should have been 18.60, not 22.32, which is 18.60 with a 20 percent tip. I, like others, thought they were giving them self a nice little bonus, but after months and months I finally happened to notice that once the charge on my bank statement went from "pending" to not pending, the right amount was charged to my account. For some reason the pending charge estimates a twenty perecent tip, but that is not the actual amount that will be taken from your account - the total you write on the cc slip is the actual amount they will eventually charge you. This appears to be the case over at cafe chamonix as well, so I guess there are some odd credit card transaction systems in Davis that total things up this way. So everyone that thinks they were robbed by Hunan - go back and check your account!

However, the employees there do not seem happy at all, so it kind of ruins my mood too. Barely any eye contact, no smiles or no greetings. --["Users/AlexN"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-03-18 23:11:08'' [[nbsp]] Wow, so many whiners on this page. The building that Hunan is located in smells like a doctor's office, yes. The neon signs remind me of a cheap Vegas joint, agreed. But if you like food that tastes good (just don't think about the MSG content), aren't picky about authenticity, and don't enjoy paying thirty bucks for an entree, give it a try. I heart their lunch specials - you get a soup or salad, rice, chow mein, and a crab cheese wanton for around seven bucks with tip. I haven't had a problem with the service, they keep the water refills coming. And I think it's been established that you shouldn't use your credit card here either, so just pay with cash, eat, and be happy. --["Users/RoseRed"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-03-30 22:53:20'' [[nbsp]] Tonight we ate at Hunan's. The food was tasty. I ordered the big bowl of Hot&amp;Sour soup and my dinner date ordered the tofu. Service was so-so. We went late (around 8:45pm) and so we had to order fast because they were closing the kitchen. And then we had to pay quickly because they were shutting down their registers or whatever. Anyway, just know that if you go within an hour of closing time, they will rush you. --["Users/CurlyGirl26"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-03-30 22:54:00'' [[nbsp]] Oh and the bill was hella cheap.

A several fridays ago, I called in an order (large veg hot &amp; sour soup...sooooo good) at 10pm and told them I'd be there in about 15 minutes. I work a block away and would be getting off work at 10:10, so I figured they'd have it ready since it usually takes them 10 minutes to make it. I got there at 10:15pm, and the door was already locked. I knocked a few and about 5 minutes later, they answered as if I was bothering them. I was used to the service so I wasn't irked. But I was suprised that they were already closed despite knowing I was coming when I said I would. They rushed me out after I paid for the food that was already waiting for me at the register. I love the food, but sometimes this place is just odd... --["Users/SunjeetBaadkar"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-04-05 18:42:35'' [[nbsp]] Their food? they were ok, but their price is very cheap. but I won't recommend my friends to go there at all. I been there two time with my friends. The first time i went there i found hair in my food, and i told the waiter about it, and he told me that he will change the plate for me. As he gave it to me, i noticed is the same plate but with some more food. I didn't mind to bother him more, so i just totally ignored it. The second time i went there with 3 of my friends. We got FOOD POISONING....four of us are having tummyache and one of them threw up as we walk out the restaurant. We went back to tell the manager to check if their food are dirty or not. We are not looking for money back or anything but asking the manager to be careful next time. Instead of giving us an apologize, he told us that is our fault that we have bad stomach. Logically, how can FOUR of us all stomachache at the same time? we are not the same person. Therefore, wE asked him to show us a license where it shows if they have a good grade of cleanness. The manager told us that he don't have it, and that all the restaurant that have grading ( A , B, C) are the dirty ones. It was useless giving a lesson to him, so we decided never go there again, because their service sucks, their manager sucks. --["Users/yukarinan"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-04 12:58:50'' [[nbsp]] after reading the mixed reviews on this page, i called in an order of general chicken. I must say i was pleasantly surprised; it was very flavorful (i dont particularly care about MSG ), with just enough spice, and the chicken itself was perfectly cooked. i was quite impressed. cannot say about the service, though, because even though they said it would be ready in 10 minutes, i got there in 10 minutes and waited another 10. the restaurant was also nearly empty at the time. i would recommend the general chicken though. --["Users/boristheblade"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-19 17:00:18'' [[nbsp]] I have to say I wasn't very impressed. It might have been because I went in with pretty high expectations, but sadly they were not fulfilled. I went with a friend of mine and got the Family Diner A. The service was measly compared to Silver Dragon, but the food was ok. It was not the best Chinese I have ever had, but it wasn't the worst either. I probably wouldn't go back. I'd prefer Silver Dragon for the lower prices and larger quantities as well as the engaging atmosphere. The servers at Hunan were not very friendly. I might have to try lunch sometime. --["Users/VTang"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-21 22:19:42'' [[nbsp]] THE WORST SERVICE CAN BE FOUND AT HUNAN. Instead of asking if we were done with our soup they just grabbed our bowls right from underneath us. The waiter, the son of the owners, made us feel guilty for asking for something. There was only one good waiter (probably the only one not related to the owners)- I made sure to give him the tip as we left the restaurant. Finally, they stole my 7 year old daughter's purse. Only after I yelled in their faces in front of other patrons did they actually find my daughter's purse. Thank God I paid in cash. --["Users/Misha"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-28 16:37:32'' [[nbsp]] O.K... The over charging, bad food, and poor service is NOTHING compared to the BIG FAT COCK ROACHES that I saw on my visit.

If it is not correct after it has finished pending, you need to call the restaurant and your credit card company. --["Users/memphisraines"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-06-07 14:30:49'' [[nbsp]] Sesame chicken lunch special SEE HERE --&gt; http://i29.tinypic.com/sllhqt.jpg Mmm delicious.

Hunan credit card machines estimate a twenty percent tip, so while the transaction is pending it may seem like they overcharged the amount you wanted to pay, but when the transaction is finished pending the right amount will be taken from your account. --["Users/JakeJames"]<br> - * Yup... just like most other restaurants and gas stations. It's a common mistaken complaint. See ["authorization hold"] for more information. --["Users/JabberWokky" Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards]<br> - * Incorrect - they DO overcharge, several times (especially when I left low tips). I've had them overcharge me from pennies to up to forty cents. And it had absolutely NOTHING to do with authorization holds.

It was true that the pending charge was for a larger amount, but once the charge went through, it was for the correct amount. Of course, mistakes could have been made in other cases; I can't prove that they weren't. But I was not overcharged. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-10-12 10:23:08'' [[nbsp]] Although they try to make a fancy restaurant setting, the food is really just Chinese fast food.

Also, I like their walnut shrimp. --["Users/feichu-huya"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-11-24 19:37:37'' [[nbsp]] My wife and I went to Hunan tonight and had a horrible experience. After the waiter took our order, he went to the bar area only to start a conversation with his coworkers and never returned to check on us. A waitress brought us the food and found out one of the orders was wrong, and then she just walked away without saying a word. A few moments later, the waiter who initially took our order returned with the right dish and placed it on our table without saying a word. At this point, we felt as if we did something wrong. Throughout our entire dinner, no one ever came by our table to ask if we were doing ok. At the end of our dinner, we really just wanted to leave the place and never return. When I paid for our dinner at the front, I told the manager that one of the dishes (this is the dish that they got wrong in the first place) tasted really funky, but he just played dumb by not saying a word – I was really starting to notice a pattern there. It would be a different story if we finished the food and complained about the taste, the manager saw the almost untouched dish on our table. Service is an essential part of the restaurant business and one horrific experience is more than enough for any customers. --["Users/nelsoncc"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-12-01 12:41:34'' [[nbsp]] I've come to the conclusion that Hunan's has the best Hot and Sour soup in Davis --["Users/SharmiBasu"]</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hunanhttp://daviswiki.org/Hunan2009-06-24 11:33:53BrookeBcomment on comment <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hunan<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 144: </td> <td> Line 144: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ <br> + **I always was under the impression that fried wontons were just the wrapper, anyways.

They don't make their money splitting checks. They make them by turning tables. Although the cashier might gripe a little, I've never experienced true rudeness from any of the staff.

I went last night as one of a party of five, including some non-students. We had to wait for about five minutes, but that wasn't a problem. The waiter took our order, we waited for about thirty minutes with not a trace of food, not even the soup we'd ordered. Meanwhile, two parties that had been seated after us had been served. We flagged down a waitress, who told us very promptly that our waiter had left our order in his pocket and forgot to place it- interesting that she knew this and didn't bother to tell us. Our waiter came back to our table, offering us free soda about five times before he finally got the hint and walked away. When he brought the food out about fifteen minutes later, he had the order wrong. The food itself was excellent, though. MAJOR HINT HERE: If you order something with meat and vegetables (e.g. Mongolian Beef, Sweet and Sour Shrimp), they seriously skimp on the meat and put in as many veggies as they can, so ask for no veggies if you know you like Mongolian Beef and lots of it. We had planned not to tip, but one of my friends felt bad and left three dollars, about 7% of our $45 bill. Hopefully that got the point across. The food is good and so are the prices, but the service is awful and I feel like we got the short end of the stick mainly because we are undergrads and they think we'll wait for anything. --["Users/acparsons"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hunanhttp://daviswiki.org/Hunan2009-03-08 15:02:09strawberryComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hunan<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 118: </td> <td> Line 118: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2009-03-08 16:02:09'' [[nbsp]] Not crazy about the food here, but eh...<br> + --["Users/strawberry"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hunanhttp://daviswiki.org/Hunan2009-03-01 20:58:14renee415Comment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hunan<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 116: </td> <td> Line 116: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2009-03-01 20:58:14'' [[nbsp]] I would only go for their cheap lunches.

Seems like people complain about customer service since there's only a few people serving a bunch of tables, but as long as I get to order and get my food on quickly, I'm happy.

Our Calimari was excellent, although it came with a pretty generic soy sauce. She ordered lemon chicken that was limp and not very lemony. I had the spicy crispy duck that managed to be dry, a fairly difficult thing to do for duck. All the food came out very late, something that they explained (after bringing out the food) was due to their burning the first duck. Despite spending $30 on dinner, there was no soup or other minor side things that normally go along with ordering two entrees. I got a plate of duck (no sauce), and she got chicken. We had to ask for rice. Lunch may well be better, but I'll not likely go again for dinner. Recommended for lemon chicken is ["Noodle Express"]. --["Users/JabberWokky"]<br> - -----<br> - ''2005-02-27'' [[nbsp]] I go to Hunan quite frequently and I find their food quite good. Their chow mein (limp and flavorless) and egg flower soup aside, I've found their chicken dishes to be top notch and their rice to be quite good. It's hard to beat their lunch specials -- my favorite being the Zuccini Chicken in Hot Garlic sauce for $4.25. --["Users/PaulLanzi" pl]<br> - -----<br> - ''2005-02-27'' [[nbsp]] My ["The Bakery" roomies] and I love their Chinese Chicken Salad.

And they do serve soup as part of the lunch special. But they've always had horrible service. The usual waiter is pretty much a jerk, acts like it's a huge indignition to do anything. But *do* check your credit card. Of the 9 or 10 times I've had lunch there, they've only done it once so I figured it was an accident til I saw your guys comments. That's not cool at all. Also, they tax extra. A dish that's 4.95 is charged at 5.40, which is 9.01% tax. I know it's chump change (about 8 cents extra), but still. --["Users/EdWins" ES]<br> - -----<br> - ''2005-05-21'' [[nbsp]] the lunch specials are huge, and cheap. But the quality was almost at the level of a ["panda express"], ["Wok n' Roll" wok and roll], or ["Mr. Chan's" mr chans]. it seems like fast food chinese quality with larger portions and nice decour. the meals ive had here were generally cheap enough so that i payed in cash, however the thing about the tax seems odd. tax is charged by the city or state, and is a fixed rate, so if they are charging more for tax they are pocketing it. --["Users/MattHh"]<br> - -----<br> - ''2005-06-17'' [[nbsp]] Absolutely disgusting.

When you use your CC at a restaurant, the card is authorized for (if I remember right) 20% more than the amount on the bill (pre-tip) when the bank is contacted. Say you have a $100 bill, and you have $101 in your account. Your card will be denied. This ensures that you can't add, say, a $15 tip AFTER the bank has been contacted that you don't have sufficient funds for. This authorization appears as funds withdrawn for as long as 48 hours or so, until the restaurant finalizes the transaction and the bank "catches up". It's a common complaint. --["Users/JeffSpeckles"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-01-15 01:02:08'' [[nbsp]] The food is OKAY. Not the best.

If you like Chinese food, its not bad at all. Big menu. I thought the Chicken with pinenapple would be with rice and not with the red sauce that you see for sweet and sour. I was disappointed by my choice of food, but the other dishes were delicious. I'd go here again, but i'd consider somewhere else first. --["Users/CraigMerry"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-02-11 16:29:14'' [[nbsp]] The proximity to campus, the unbelievable value of food in the lunch special, and their crab and cheese wonton, all come together to form a delightful alternative to on campus food selections. I have been going to Hunan a few times a week now for the last month, and I have been extremely impressed. Their menu, however, is uneven. Their lemon chicken is lightly marinated in lemon sauce, with delicious tender white meat chicken, while their sweet and sour chicken should be more aptly renamed “sweet and sour sauce with soggy chicken.” Their orange chicken, which is another popular dish, seems to straddle the line between too much sauce and not enough white meat chicken, although the sauce itself is something to crave. (part 1) --["Users/JeffKauf"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-02-11 16:29:31'' [[nbsp]] (part 2) I would recommend the Lemon chicken, and chow mien. But the crabmeat cheese wonton is most impressive. Although, I think to be more honest, Hunan should rename it the cream cheese wonton, since there is about as much crab in the wonton as there is seashore in Davis. For about $4.50 you get eight of these small fried cream cheese pockets, which could alone constitute an entire meal, and often do. The décor in Hunan is something out of the 1980’s, but the restaurant seems clean, and prices are more than reasonable. --["Users/JeffKauf"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-02-24 16:35:31'' [[nbsp]] Do they put crack in the Honey Crispy Walnut Prawns?

We went back to talk to the manager and told him not to serve the hot garlic sauce, and he REFUSED! He claimed nothing was wrong with his food. We then asked him to see his health inspection letter and he claimed that he was never given one even after 10 YEARS of working there!! He then proceeded to tell us that restaurants that have those health inspection letters were the "bad restaurants"; ALL restaurants need the health inspectors verification!! (They probably failed theirs). Then he kept asking what we wanted him to do, and since he wasn't going to stop serving the sauce, we asked for our money back. He refused to do that too!

A few minutes after we were served the main courses, a long brown cockroach crawled up on the wall we were sitting at. I tried to smash it with a dinner napkin, and some of the roach guts flew outwards, with the damn roach still not dead when it landed on the table. When an older male came up to the table, he was trying to act competent, showing a carbon copy of what he claimed to be an extermination bill, but wouldn't let us see it upclose.

Multiple visits from our waiter, a bit snappy in taking our salad plates...and overcharged me on my tab, about $2.00. Isn't that illegal? Should I report it to my bank?<br> - I'll visit again, but with cash. --["Users/ArianeMetz"]<br> - * I dimly recall that rice was extra. I remember that I had extra charges for food offered with no comment that they were additional fees. Not illegal, but certainly not the best practice to encourage return visits. --["Users/JabberWokky" jw]<br> - * Fried rice is part of the lunch combo, which is what I'm guessing she got (what everyone gets).

Did you bring it to their attention? Did they deal with the overcharge when you asked about it? Were they polite about it?

It's not worth driving over there and ask for a refund. Anyways, read how MANY PEOPLE here have experienced credit card overcharge and you'll see that HUNAN really do have shady business practice. --["Users/DavisResident2"]</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hunanhttp://daviswiki.org/Hunan2009-01-03 19:55:54EdWinsmoving older ones. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hunan<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 29: </td> <td> Line 29: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ * ["/2005 Reviews" Reviews from 2005]<br> + * ["/2006 Reviews" Reviews from 2006]<br> + * ["/2007 Reviews" Reviews from 2007]<br> + </span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hunanhttp://daviswiki.org/Hunan2009-01-01 14:14:33hazeleyes16Comment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hunan<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 203: </td> <td> Line 203: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2009-01-01 14:14:33'' [[nbsp]] The Hunan is awesome! I am a big fan of their Hunan Beef and their Honey walnut shrimp. I prefer to go for Lunch because they have their Happy Luncheon where you get a main entree, side of chow mien (which is so good), side of rice (fried or steamed) and a cream cheese wonton. The best part though is the soup included in the luncheon special. I am a big fan of their tasty soups, oh and the salad is great too. I can never quite decide on soup or salad so I usually just get a salad as well :) Dinner isn't too bad of a deal either as they have a similar option to lunch. Overall the Hunan is prob. some of the best chinese I have had.

After the waiter took our order, he went to the bar area only to start a conversation with his coworkers and never returned to check on us. A waitress brought us the food and found out one of the orders was wrong, and then she just walked away without saying a word. A few moments later, the waiter who initially took our order returned with the right dish and placed it on our table without saying a word. At this point, we felt as if we did something wrong. Throughout our entire dinner, no one ever came by our table to ask if we were doing ok. At the end of our dinner, we really just wanted to leave the place and never return. When I paid for our dinner at the front, I told the manager that one of the dishes (this is the dish that they got wrong in the first place) tasted really funky, but he just played dumb by not saying a word – I was really starting to notice a pattern there. It would be a different story if we finished the food and complained about the taste, the manager saw the almost untouched dish on our table. Service is an essential part of the restaurant business and one horrific experience is more than enough for any customers. --["Users/nelsoncc"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Hunanhttp://daviswiki.org/Hunan2008-11-10 23:29:17ArianeMetz(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Hunan<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 115: </td> <td> Line 115: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> * I TOTALLY went for it, and my bank adjusted the charge.
