Stir fried veggies were crisp and tasty. Had this with mixed dumplings spring rolls and duck pancakes. All were good no complaints esp liked the duck. If you want a quick cheap feed it's the place to go,

Tried this place on our first night in Hobart and it was so good we went back the second night. It is a great quick cheap meal. Don't expect fancy service for that price but it was clean and staff were polite and efficient. The duck pancakes, dumplings (both fried and steamed) and pork belly with green beans were all...

Had dinner here last night. Ordered some pork dumplings, a beef noodle soup and a serve of duck pancakes. Food was delicious and service was quick. But the portions were quite small. Not really liked the rice noodles in the beef noodle soup, would prefer wheat based noodles or egg noodles. The beef itself was really tender and tasty tho.... More

A favourite of mine for a quick bite either at lunchtime or before a concert or show Dumpling Express makes their own dumplings in house and are full of flavour. Try the soup dumpling in a spicy broth - fab

Trying to win worst meal in Australia in 3 weeks. We ordered pork dumplings and Spring Rolls. The dumplings were tough and cold. The Spring Roll a little warmer but very mushy inside. Would not return and can’t recommend.

Great value for money, some of the best Chinese food we've eaten. Generous servings, and quick service.

Our family of 4 enjoyed the food. Kung pao chicken and pepper beef were delicious. The duck pancakes looked great, but didn't get to try them, as our 6 yo gobbled them down, so that's a good recommendation. Steamed dumplings were good, but probably not the highlight. Like the fact the mains come out with a free small steamed rice... More

Family of 4 including 3yr and 6yr old children went here for dinner. Considering it was a Monday this place was packed (albeit a very small restaurant). We ordered kung pao chicken stirfry, 12 assorted steamed dumplings, peppered beef stirfry and duck pancakes. All dishes had fantastic flavours and decent size. Kids loved everything. Really well priced. Book ahead to... More
