Great Hunan restaurant Ammon


Great Chinese food can be found several places in Idaho Falls, but your best bet for a quick bite before a movie might just be Great Hunan in Ammon. Located just north of the Edwards Grand Teton Cinema off on Hitt Road, you can’t get a closer or tastier bite to eat if you’re planning on catching a movie afterward.

Diners will be impressed by the clean, no-nonsense atmosphere, the friendly and speedy service, and of course: the food. The menu consists of typical Chinese fare; meals come with a choice of fried or white rice, a soup, and a wanton. For something spicy, try their Szechuan beef. For something different (but surprisingly delicious), try their Shrimp with Lobster Sauce. The Great Hunan’s nutty Chinese hot tea will complete your meal. For those seeking something harder, beer and wine are also available in additional to traditional soft drinks. The children’s menu is small but has more Americanized dishes for the little ones (breaded chicken or shrimp with fries). Lunch specials served from 11-3 are $5.25. Regular priced meal offerings are likewise extremely affordable.

The Great Hunan is located at 2647 S 25th East (in the Edwards Spectrum shopping center). They are open from 11 am to 9 pm Sunday through Friday, and 11 am to 10 pm on Saturdays. For takeout or more information, call (208)552-3000.
