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

We have eaten at this restaurant several times in the last few months. The experiences have all been the same. Very good to excellent Americanized Chinese food in a nice, clean environment. Restaurant is usually busy, but usually there is no need for reservations. Service tends to be on the slow side, so keep that in mind if you are... More

We've eaten here a couple of times in the last few months and look forward to going back. The prices are good, portions are large, tea is great and we always have leftovers for the next day.
