I've been going to Happy Dragon since they first opened in a smaller location down the street. A gre at family restaurant with a wide variety of options, most notably their lunch plates which include substantial portions. The food is fresh and they are very accomodating to requests. A great place for lunch or to grab a lunch plate to... More

The service is always prompt and friendly. We love the walnut prawns and egg rolls. The food is fresh and has a little bit of a Vietnamese twist to it. Lots of good food for a reasonable price.

We went here last minute on Christmas night. The place was really busy. There appeared to be 2 waitresses, one on each side of the building. Our drinks took a while to get to us. It was obvious that our waitress was doing the best she could and we appreciated that. Probably waited about 90 minutes to get our food.... More

Perhaps this place is better for take out, but we sat awhile. The food was good, though they did not have chow fun! The hot and sour soup was very good.

Fresh and tasty food, offered by happy and professional staff, in a consistently clean environment and for a reasonable price: This is the Happy Dragon restaurant in Monterey on North Fremont, before you get to Seaside. Located across the street from the Best Western hotel, and adjacent to Monterey Produce Co., look for the big red sign that says "Happy... More

I got the Tofu with Green Beans and it was very good. Rice was extra which I thought was odd. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant itself is very nice.

I highly recommend this Chinese restaurant along Fremont Street. It's probably one of the best one out there. The food and proportions are great! Service is nice. A lot of food selections too.

Their vegetarian dishes are great and I love having lunch or dinner here. Their sweet and sour eggplant is perfect and their Tofu dishes scrumptious. They have all of the traditional chinese dishes but if you love vegetarian dishes you will not be disappointed. Nothing fancy with the exterior or interior but great food.

Ate lunch here. This is a locals place with a good takeout business. Service was attentive if not that friendly. I ate here with my granddaughter and she liked it. I had the General Chicken. Good portion. Hot and flavorful. We also had the egg drop soup and she had pork dish. I didn't try that. Overall a good Chinese... More
