Take Out

Always very friendly when I get take out. They generally remember me. Most food items I've had are good and fresh. The dumplings are great and so it the sweet and sour shrimp!

A long established place in the Food Lion shopping center on South Church Street in Smithfield. Predominately take-out with a few eat-in tables. Open 7 days, no alcohol. The owners are also the cooks, which means the food is consistently good. A take out for two, for example, with fried rice, egg foo young (ask for the white sauce on... More

Found this Chinese restaurant on Tripadvisor and would highly recommend it. I placed a take out order and it was ready in less time than stated. The vegetables were cooked to perfection and the portions were large for a very reasonable price. Healthier and less expensive option than fast food in the same area. Highly recommend.

When we were too tired to dine out on a recent trip to Smithfield, we took food out from this restaurant. It was ok. Inexpensive

Hunan Express has a great menu. This family has been preparing great meals for years here in Smithfield. The Pork Egg Foo Young and the Sweet and Sour Pork are the best. Their Egg Rolls are also tops. Another great is the Steamed fried rice.

keep us coming back! The food is always the same......warm, tasty, & fresh. The shopping center was popular a few years back, but with companies leaving or closing THIS place remains. In a big part due to the customer service / friendly faces If in the area......why not give them a try..

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 have... More

Hunan Express is the oldest chinese restaurant in Smithfield. It has a unique charm of having a husband and wife team who make every order special. 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
