Hunan L'Rose a Top Pick for Chinese

The first Bites Nearby column highlights a popular choice for a nice chinese dinner in Odenton.

Every Thursday afternoon, Odenton Patch will provide a short profile of a local eatery. Today, we offer our thoughts on Hunan L'Rose, a well-regarded Chinese restaurant located in the Odenton Shopping Center. 

Overview: Hunan L’Rose is well-known in Odenton as an upscale-but-not-too fancy Chinese restaurant with a broad menu. It’s a popular spot for parties and family gatherings. Great for dinner, but with a nice lunch menu and carryout.

Decor: The restaurant has a traditional feel without coming off as too stuffy. The large fish tank in the middle of the restaurant is a nice tough an the multi-tiered dining areas adds intimacy without sacrificing tables (but watch your step!)

Appetizers: The steamed and fried dumplings are a favorite, but the more open-minded diner might try the Crab Rangoon or Squid Delight. Most appetizers are reasonably priced at under $5. Wonton, egg drop and hot and sour soup is also available. 

Entrees: There are the staples, such as chicken with cashew nuts or kung pao chicken ($11.95) but some more adventurous dishes featuring lobster, squid and scallops. There is also a wide array of vegetarian dishes.

Desserts: Hunan L’Rose has limited options for dessert, but does include small bowls of sherbet and orange slices after every meal. The fried banana flambé is also a favorite.

Service: Weekends can be crowded but long waits for a table are rare. Wait staff is attentive, pleasant and knowledgeable.

May I say that I have never step foot past the cashier desk, so I've never in my 13 years in Odenton eating in there, but my family does take out at least 6 times a month from there. Very nice lady behind the desk always gives my son extra cookie. Great food and service.

Absolutely the best place to eat in Odenton. Great Food and the ladies at the counter are always freindly and act like you are part of the family. The only complaint i have is that they dont offer delivery. I would order from there a lot more often if they did.

Agree with both comments above. This place is fantastic whether you are dining in or taking out. Very generous portions...you're almost guaranteed to have left-overs.
