If I had to pick my #1 favorite restaurant in downtown Atlanta, it would be Hsu's! I've dined there many times and had lunch take-out for my employees more times than I can count. The food is deliciously prepared, the service is outstanding, and the entire experience is just fantastic! My favorite dish is almond-fried shrimp (it makes my mouth water just writing about it!).

Hsu's has great food but it does tend to be a bit pricey. I love chinese food so I put up with the prices in return for some good tofu and beef. I hate going during dinnertime because it gets crowded, so i suggest you go during lunch.

Food is standard Chinese fare; slightly overpriced (~ $13.00 for mongolian beef and tea at lunch); private and out of the way if you are looking for something a bit quieter in the Peachtree Center area

I've been dragged here for lunch with various friends five or six times in the last couple of years. The food is very pretty, but somewhat overpriced, in my opinion. The decor is "black laquer chic". My biggest complaint is this: How can a Chinese restaurant only have one vegetarian dish?! There's not a single meatless appetizer or soup, either. Granted, the mixed vegetables with tofu IS pretty tasty, although it's not really a substantial amount of food (at least at lunch) and they tend to use the big, tough asparagus pieces. However, I asked a few days ago if I could substitute noodles for the rice (just to have SOME variety) and was told absolutely not!! Another time, a friend wanted to make a simple switch on his order and was told "no", as well. Now, I'm not picky, but I often ask for menu substitutions at restaurants and I have ALWAYS gotten what I wanted. Some restaurants add a small extra charge, which is fine, but I've NEVER been told "no". I will not "vote" for this restaurant again when I'm eating downtown with friends.
