We eat at this restaurant about once a month mainly because of it's location (one end of 'Chinatown', actually China street) and it is reasonably priced. It lives up to it's Express name but does cook food as ordered. The restaurant is fairly small and cramped at times and it is normally fully occupied.
They have a limited lunchtime and early evening 'happy hour' menu and a much bigger standard menu. Food is OK and there are many authentic dishes available as well as the Chinglish dishes more suited to westerners. As with most restaurants drinks are overpriced.
As the restaurant is always busy and has a high turnover of customers the fixtures and fittings are well worn or tired. This includes the crockery, furniture and building. The place also does take-away food. However, the restaurant only accepts cash so go prepared.
In summary the restaurant is OK for a quick meal but not the sort of place to go for a night out.
