Have been here so many times here after I first dared to enter it. Had walked past for years. It's a canteen style place with no frills. But the food is the best and fresh. Have never been a let down. The service is fast and not as pleasing as we may expect in a restaurant but the staff are... More

It is in a very good place. Easy to find. And always crowded. Price is good. Food delivery is fast. Waiters are very friendly. Only 1 minus, could only use cash, below 15 pounds.

Quite tasty food and the service was reasonably fast as well. The price was very reasonable for a UK restaurant. When we went there for dinner, the restaurant filled up pretty fast. However, the interior, as has been mentioned by another reviewer, was a bit tatty but the quality and taste of the food makes up for it. Recommended to... More

Get past the decor (tired/tatty)...the food was fabulous. Many customers were Chinese...a good sign, and although we ate early (6.30), by the time we finished people were queuing for tables. Everything we ordered was delivered quickly, and was delicious! Special noodles are a must, as is the salt and pepper squid. Eat here and you won't be disappointed!

I had the roast duck noodles in soup on the recommendation of the waitresses , it was fantastic! The BBQ roast pork is juicy & succulent. We had the seafood rice stick noodles(fresh plump scallops, prawns & squid), Singapore style fried, Singapore vermicelli, sliced chicken with seasonal veg & pak choy with garlic. Everything was fantastic! They are not shy... More

Slightly erring towards a cafe rather than a restaurant, this is a simple but functional set up. Friendly staff who know their menu well though. The food was fantastic though. Dim sum was delicious and all other starters we had were hot, tasty and plentiful. We had the roast meats for main. I knew they were pre cooked but appear... More

If you're looking for uber chic surroundings Happy Seasons isn't for you, if you want well cooked dim sun and freshly cooked mains at reasonable prices book a table!

Could not recommend this place enough. I would venture to say that this is the best Chinese food I have had in the UK. Do not expect silver service albeit the staff are friendly. This is more of the rough and ready approach you get in an authentic Chinese restaurant in Asia. This is so good, I came back for... More

I took my 14 year old son here for something different. This is a Chinese restaurant frequented by Chinese and offers a change from your typical restaurant. The whole place is functional and designed to feed you well and quickly. The service was polite and fast. My son thoroughly enjoyed the roast dish for which they appear to be known.... More

Visited Happy Seasons recently – we had been there years ago but not been there recently. There was a bit of a queue but we managed to get seats quite quickly. The service was very efficient and friendly and drinks prices were reasonable. We ordered Malaysian style flat noodles which we were told was char kuay teow (dry fried flat... More
