Owners are very friendly and food is always good. Been going here for YEARS! You can't cook at home as reasonable. Garlic Chicken and Hunan dishes are GREAT and very different from others places.

I keep forgetting that some of the best food I've had is right here in Hamtown. Hunan prepares a good variety of Chinese dishes, mostly for takeout orders, I gather. The wine queen was ill with a bad cold on Valentines evening, no less, so we opted to dine in, and glad we did. We started with crab Rangoon. Very... More

A long established place in the Food Lion shopping center on South Church Street in Smithfield. Predominately take-out with a few eat-in tables. Open 7 days, no alcohol.

Always very friendly when I get take out. They generally remember me. Most food items I've had are good and fresh. The dumplings are great and so it the sweet and sour shrimp!

Found this Chinese restaurant on Tripadvisor and would highly recommend it. I placed a take out order and it was ready in less time than stated. The vegetables were cooked to perfection and the portions were large for a very reasonable price. Healthier and less expensive option than fast food in the same area. Highly recommend.

When we were too tired to dine out on a recent trip to Smithfield, we took food out from this restaurant. It was ok. Inexpensive

Hunan Express has a great menu. This family has been preparing great meals for years here in Smithfield. The Pork Egg Foo Young and the Sweet and Sour Pork are the best. Their Egg Rolls are also tops. Another great is the Steamed fried rice.

keep us coming back! The food is always the same......warm, tasty, & fresh. The shopping center was popular a few years back, but with companies leaving or closing THIS place remains. In a big part due to the customer service / friendly faces If in the area......why not give them a try..
