Had dinner with a friend here after an early evening film at the State. The sung choy bau was nicely balanced but the three shot chicken stood out - a dish I'd never tried before but would again

Love Mu Lan food. You can get some of the old favourites plus lots of contemporary dishes that their chefs put their own twist on. Also love sitting in the booths downstairs, they makes for great conversation and you feel special sitting in them. Always had a good experience here.

Asian food - well prepared, quick service, stylish quiet decor; smartly dressed people can feel comfotable here. Love the low key dark hued decor with an Asian twist; a quiet special little place, cute windows onto the street at the front let you watch passers by in summer.

We dropped into Mu Lan with no booking on a Saturday night and were lucky to get a table upstairs. The place was quite busy, but we were served quickly and efficiently. All meals were delicious, the service friendly and efficient. Clean as a whistle. Couldn't fault it in any respect

The food here is outstanding, and although expensive you can't fault the beautifully presented food –ideal to share meals between a few people to try the awesome food. Service was mostly excellent. The last time we went, after going each work trip, I was disappointed to find an extra $30 was charged by Mu Lan on my credit card, especially... More

Central in North Hobart, this is a very professional restaurant, very good service and very well presented fresh yum-cha type food. Steamed dishes we ordered to share were the best! Try the pork and chive. We made a booking, parked 2 blocks away.

I've been here for dinner on several occasions and have never had a single complaint! Last time I ate here, my partner and I had booked a table but there must have been some confusion. How ever this was very quickly rectified and we were sat in the upstairs dining room, which we had to ourselves most of the night!... More

We had a fantastic dinner at Mu Lan for Dad's 75th birthday. We shared entrees and mains, and enjoyed a wonderful combination of fresh flavours. Spring rolls, pan fried lamb dumplings, and steamed prawn dumplings to start. Mains: seafood combination, honey chicken and fillet beef with mushroom. Fried rice too. All dishes were superb. Friendly service and pleasant atmosphere. Thank... More

Went for a walk to check out the eateries in North Hobart with no plans of having lunch but checked out the menu at Mu Lan and decided to try their yum cha, so glad we did, while the yum cha menu isn't extensive it has some interesting dumplings. The blue eye trevalla dumplings were so good we ordered another... More
