Chinese food cooking again in Stewartville

Jacky Dong is extending the reach of his Chinese food beyond Rochester with a planned opening of a third restaurant.

Dong, who with his family owns Hunan Garden and Kingdom Buffet in Rochester, is gearing up to open New Hunan in Stewartville. He hopes to open the doors at 106 First St. by mid-December.

“We have a lot of customers from Stewartville. They talked to me and asked me for it,” he says.

The Stewartville eatery will offer take-out and dine-in service from the same menu as Hunan Garden. He expects to have about four people on staff to start.

The deal was brokered by Darci Fenske of Paramark Real Estate.

The work in Stewartville follows a renovation project earlier this month in Rochester that added windows to the exterior wall of the 26-year-old Hunan Garden in the Northgate Shopping Center, 1120 Seventh St. N.W.

“Customers are coming in and saying it looks totally different. It is a lot brighter in there now,” Dong says.

He plans to also replace the carpet and tile in that restaurant in the spring.


Yum! Lucky for Stewartville. I'm sure they'll do great business...they have excellent food.

everytime we went to Kingdom Buffet-food was warm-not hot, friends get sick, wont go back.

3rd time is a charm? really, opening by mid December? looks like they are going to do a ton of work to it huh?

I know the first, or was it second chinese place in that building burnt down, but really...I hate to be negative.

Great! Are the people in Stewartville really like Chinese food that much?

Homestyle pizza in Stewartville has a For Sale sign in the window that appeared in the last week or so. Hopefully it works out, but maybe there is not room for more restaurants?

Had dinner there just few evenings ago...large portions..good food~~BUT extremely OVER PRICED for the fact that you order at the counter and your food is served on syro-foam...full-service prices with counter-service...I really don't think Stewartville is the right place for this type of restaurant

Really? Overpriced? But the food had large portions and it was good. Hmmm....Actually this restaurant wanted to be more of a take out then a in-house seating restaurant. Maybe next time you should bring your China along...Stewartville, is a great place for this type of restaurant! I have eaten there twice and have their take-out and the food is exceptional, styro-foam and all!

I had lunch there last Saturday - Hunan Lamb - it was excellent and not over-priced for the quantity. I was disappointed in the Styrofoam and plastic utensils. They could easily have a supply of dishes and silverware for the eat-in people and Styrofoam for take-out. I can't imagine how they would be able to serve Sizzling Rice Soup in Styrofoam containers!
