Tong’s Hunan is a very popular Chinese Restaurant in Northbrook IL (a Northwest Suburb of Chicago). People love Tong’s Hunan – it’s always busy! While several other Chinese restaurants in the area closed down, Tong’s Hunan continues to do well – so they must be doing something right :) Great Chinese food, quick service, good prices and huge portions – it all keeps people coming for more.

Tong’s Hunan is located in the strip mall on the corner of Dundee Rd and Sanders Rd – in the same plaza as Dominick’s. So if you see Dominicks, go to that plaza – Tong’s Hunan is to the right of Dominicks. And of course, a car had to be parked in front of Tong’s as I was taking a picture of it from the outside :)

Tong’s Hunan has great hot & sour soup. It’s rich and chunky and has the right amount of spice and an outstanding taste! They also have a version that uses chicken instead of pork :)
