Generous servings and a varied menu. The walnut shrimp is amazing. Good service. Have been there for group birthday parties. Short wait times for a large group

The best Chinese Restaurant in Elk Grove and has been for over 30 years that we have been dining there. They moved from a previous location and this is much bigger and better. Give them a try, the prices are good.

My family and I ate here on Sunday, and I must say we were quite disappointed. After reading all the raving reviews, I anticipated a fabulous meal. The service was good, but the food was mediocre or less. My 10-year-old daughter who loves Chow Mein wouldn't eat Happy Garden's. Also, the loud, drunk people at the bar watching the game... More

The food is great. The atmosphere is odd, but it works. I think the place used to be a country western bar. A lot of the old decor remains. The quality of service greatly varies from visit to visit. Sometimes it is great. Other times servers can be extremely unattentive or even down right rude. (I dine out a lot.... More

We live near Happy Garden and go here often. The menu is varied and everything is well done. The staff seem to be always in a hurry and not as attentive as they should be. You have to ask for more tea or water. The one thing that bothers me is they will bring out a plate of one item... More

Had a little family reunion...large restaurants with lots of tables. The ladies pushing the carts were good at describing what they had to offer. Variety was very good, taste was excellent. Compared to LA Chinatown, this dim sum restaurant was excellent!

I previously reviewed this establishment in July and those comments are still applicable, but there have been two changes. First, the has been an improvement in the service. The staff seems to be genuinely friendlier and I always believe that attitude is a reflection of management. Second, they have made some subtle changes to some of my favorite dishes. That... More
