“Silky eggplant, solid dumplings!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

We think this is quite recently opened, and it was a bit hit and miss. The eggplant appetizer was great, silky and well flavoured, the pan stick dumplings tough and chewy... The duck pancakes ultra generous and cooked well, the prawns quite mean and lacking Szechuan pepper. Worth a revisit soon.

“New Kid on the Block”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is the newest restaurant in North Hobart. It was full and turning people away. It has a nice
fit out. There are a lot of waiters to help you. The wine list is sufficient with few wines by the glass and no sparkling wines by the glass at all.
The menu is not large for a chinese restaurant but had a nice array of dishes. The food was
cooked nicely and well presented. It is up market but not as culinary good as Me Wah in Sandy Bay. Worth a visit.

“Mu Lan Restaurant”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

The Mu Lan Restaurant has opened in the old butcher's shop in North Hobart. The food was very good and the restaurant was quite busy on the Friday night that my partner and I went. The restaurant had been opened for only 4 weeks according to the staff. The decor is modern, tasteful and the furniture is comfortable . I'll certainly be back to try other dishes.

“One of the best in North Hobart”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

It was a Wednesday night that we had dinner there and it was full house. We had some good dishes, one of which was an entree of a hot and spicy tofu. Beijing duck was delicious and the sweet and sour pork was probably the best we've tasted so far. We had no after effects of MSG although its still frequently used in Asian restaurants. Service was very attentive and friendly. We were too full to try their desserts but we'll be back.

“Give them time!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

Modern decor in a former butchers shop. Just opened and a few teething issues - the first two wines we selected were out of stock and a dish we selected was not available. The service was tentative but genuine. It will improve with time. We all thought the food was excellent. Give it a go!
