A pleasant surprise

I have passed this place several times and noticed it to be pretty busy, One evening while in the area we decided to stop in and give it try. The first impression was a small old school type of place, Do not let that tun you away. The entire meal was a great experience and every dish was very... read more

Seriously the best General Tso's we have ever had. Great authentic food. Huge portions. Inexpensive.

We came here with family and I was very happy with the selection of food we had. I wasn't the one who ordered so I don't remember the name of the dishes, but I remember really loving the Chinese rice cake (nian gao) and chicken (or was it pork?) stir fry. They also have a pretty good "xiao longbao". For... More

While visiting Del Mar we decided to try Double Happiness because it looked popular. The place is very busy and the food is very good. The staff was freindly. Plenty of food. We each ordered a dish we wanted. It was served family style with a serving bowl of rice.

We enjoyed the authentic Chinese food and soup. The small place is clean and well organized. Their service is friendly and prompt. Will come back next time.

Nothing was brought out at the same time- at all. Everything and I do mean everything was fried. Ok ok, I get it- Chinese food is not suppose to be healthy- but not everything is suppose to be fried till its tooth rattling crunchy. Helpings were huge- which would be a plus if the food was diserable... But it was... More

We had very enjoyable meals. I had the crispy garlic shrimp. It was spicy and delicious. My partner had hot and sour soup and curried chicken. The soup wasn't the best ever but was good. The curried chicken was also good. A generous helping of rice accompanied the meal. Servers were very speedy and refilled water. All workers were friendly.

Good take out, resonable pricing. We walked down there from Hotel Indigo, placed an order and it was ready in 10 min. Got it back to the hotel and ate. Good chinese take out!

We eat here about once a week. Owner will make food that has no sugar in it for me and they do not use MSG. Exceptionally accommodating. They still have the big old NY style egg rolls. Nice setting in Del Mar, large menu, lots of old favorites, we had a double order of BBQ ribs the other night and... More
