Cheap, tasty, long opening hours. Friendly staff, picture menu on the wall. We tried 3 different types of dumplings, and all were tasty. Also tried the seafood laksa - again tasty. One of the better options for non-fish-n-chips-style budget-friendly dining in Hobart's cbd.

It docen't look much from the outside, but the crowd inside must have known something, so we waded in. They serve up a good selection of affordable and tasty dishes. We enjoyed a plate pan fried dumplings, and a plate of steamed, they were equally delicious. Don't expect to get a seat at lunchtime on weekdays.

When i see 'Express' in a restaurant name im always a little dubious about the food. But this time we thought we would give it a go ... and were we surprised! Nothing Express about it, well not that it was slow service, perfectally acceptable in fact, but we were blown away with the dishes we had ordered. Duck noodle... More

Had some good stirred fried noodles with seafood. And nice spring rolls on the side. Not a very cost place but the food is really good.

The food here was so good we went there twice on two consecutive days. The fried dumplings were particularly amazing. And the kung pow chicken was also very good, we ordered it on both days. Prices were very reasonable.

May not look like much from the outside, but this little place serves up a good selection of affordable and tasty dishes. The pan fried pork dumplings are by far the best. Don't expect to get a seat at lunchtime on weekdays.

Stopped here for lunch,a popular place for lovely dumplings and other chinese meals. The steamed pork dumplings are a good size and very tasty, there is a good range of both dumplings and other dishes. I think the best thing here is service is efficient , quality of meals is very good and also the prices are very reasonable.

Love the pork dumplings with the dipping sauces. A very small, casual restaurant but the dumplings are wonderful!
