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

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

As a local dine here regularly. Wide ranging Asian menu of Chinese, Japanese, and Thai. Marginally authentic but tasty nonetheless. We've had some very tasty and creative specialty rolls (specials of the day). Also enjoy some of the Thai dishes. Certainly worth a look

This place is efficient and the family takes pride in their service and product. You can dine in or take out. Owners are friendlly and work hard. Location is in a strip shopping center. Food is very good and prepared correctly. Place is clean.
