Quality Chinese food - good selection

We did takeout from Hunan a few weeks ago. Had not been there in a while. Pleased to note they had spiffed up the dining area. Have long found the food at Hunan to be what we feel is the best in Smithfield area. Friendly people own/run the place. They have a lot of competition, I guess, but I... read more

Great food at a decent price! Staff was friendly. Food was prepared to order with just a short wait even though they were very busy.

This is my favorite shrimp fried rice in the world!!! I love for my fried rice to be brown in colored and fluffy. The shrimp fried rice has the right balance of shrimp, onions,... More

After a long day we decided to get takeout from this restaurant. Located in a shopping center near Food Lion we were greeted by a husband and wife team. He always looks up from cooking and greets everyone along with his wife who handles the orders. This location is clean and there are tables just around the corner from the... More

When you go to Hunan Express, you will meet very hard working people serving up delicious food, fast. They have been a part of Smithfield's culinary scene for 20+ years, eat in or take out, it's good either way. Dining area pretty plain, no frills, but clean. I can personally recommend D17, Szechuan Shrimp and Scallops, comes with sweet and... More

The food is very tasty there, and the couple that runs this place are so nice. They have a great variety on their menu and always willing to fix it the way you would like... I enjoy the food and visiting with them.....

I really wanted some curry as my body was in withdraw. When I checked out the menu I saw the yellow curry on the menu and ordered me a meal. I took my order back to the truck shop next to the plant to eat. When I opened up the to-go container I was very disappointed to see my meal.... More
