This sit-down Chinese restaurant in Chinatown is made for groups. Each table has enough room for at least six people (most of them seat 10) and lazy susans help streamline sharing the large servings—a “small” crawfish order is actually a massive pile of tasty crustaceans. Spicy whole fish or crab are also fantastic (verifying that Hunan Bistro does have “good fish” as the sign in front suggests), but don’t miss out on buttery braised pork belly or garlicky Hunan-style eggplant, too. Plus, they’re open seven days a week.
