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

So, me and my girl friend go to this restaurant for lunch. Not even welcome to the place. The hostess (who looked like the owner) asked us to sit wherever we wanted to. When we had questions about a couple dishes she did not want to help us much. Soup tasted bland, the egg rolls were not seasoned at all.... More

I've been going to Happy Dragon since they first opened. It's a family style restaurant offering fresh and tasty food. The menu offers a traditional selection of Chinese food along with a great variety of seasonal and other type specials. Their lunch menu is very reasonable and along with a long list of great rice plates with either meat, poultry... More

The place was empty when we arrived but went in anyway as it was midweek off season. We were happy we did. The service was quick and friendly and they gave us so much food, we ended up bringing the rest to our room for later. It was tasty and filling. We had the "A" combination for two.

We have eaten here on three occasions and have yet to a bad meal. Good service, reasonable size portions, and decent menu selections. The Mogo Beef could be bit spicier, but overall a nice place to eat.
