Please add Hunan Cafe VII at Hunters Woods Shopping Center. The crispy beef is great.

Mama Wok is a favorite restaurant of choice in Reston for my office, China Telecom Americas. I especially like the minced pork with leeks as well as the sizzling beef.

I think the best chinese food comes from the takeout place Mandarin (Home Depot shopping center)(not to be confused with the pretty good House of Mandarin on Soapstone). The food at mandarin tastes fresh and is always perfectly cooked. I've been to Mama Wok and nearly died of salt poisoning. China Star was pretty good several years ago, but quality has gone done in the last few years. Hunan and Great China are okay, but nothing special.

Hunan Cafe is good, especially the Green Beans with Beef and the Chicken Chow Mein (even if there's little to Mein, which is fine by me). Still, when it comes right down to it, I go more often to China King. The food is equally tasty but less pricey.
