Hunam Restaurant (Levittown, Long Island) Lives Again?

I feel a little silly posting this, as Long Island talk seems to have been killed by the elimination of the Tristate board, but, just in case anyone's still out there: I got a tip that the owners of the late/lamented Hunam Restaurant in Levittown moved over to Hunan Dynasty across from PC Richards at 2993 Hempstead Turnpike, Levittown, NY (516) 731-0300.

If anyone out there remembers the Chef Chan's Beef (their name for orange beef) and Slippery Chicken from Hunam and has a chance to check this out and see whether there's any culinary continuity, I'd be obliged. I'll get there eventually, myself, and will post if no one gets there before me?

  1. Bonus tip: nearby, New Star Wok in a big shopping strip at 1938 Hempstead tpk in East Meadow, is a best-of-type chinese-american takeout. Don't miss their beef chow fun. Even the sushi's surprisingly good.

    1. Does that mean that Hunan Dynasty is gone or are they merging? I love that place. Tried to go there on Sunday night with my in-laws and it said it was closed for renovations?

        1. Just stumbled on your post, Jim. As you may recall, by mother-in-law and brother-in-law live in East Meadow. I'll check this out on a future visit. And thanks for the tip on New Star Wok.

            Hey, Tom!

            New Star Wok is very much on the "surprisingly useful for locals" end of the spectrum. You needn't make a beeline there coming in from the west coast, however!

            But any help you can offer on the Hunam front would be eagerly appreciated!

              After reading your original post, I stopped in at Hunan Dynasty to see if John or Peter were there. They weren't and I haven't heard anything further. Haven't been out to restaurants lately, but enjoyed HD the times we were there and look forward to eating there again in the future.

          2. Hope they are not brining the depressing dark dank atmosphere and surly waitpersons they had when they were across the street. As I recall, having been there many times, the ONLY reason to go there was the food which in its waning days was really hit and miss.
