Came here for an early light Saturday dinner. Everything was fine. We had Spring rolls and a couple of different soups. The server did warn us they were quite large. Even the small portion can be shared between 2 or 3. Took some of their vegan tirimasu to eat later. Surprisingly good. Would eat here again on our next visit... More

I used to come here when I was living in Monterey Park, I was hanging around friends they each have their own dietary restrictions, no sugar, no wheat (before the term Gluten free was a term), no dairy and frankly no taste. I discovered Happy family and I brought my finicky eater friends and they all love it. Vegetarians equals... More

We ate here on Saturday, August 10th. My husband & I were looking for lunch after my husband performed an inspection in the area. This restaurant looked so inviting when we drove by that I told my husband to look for parking(he drives while I look for a restaurant). There is 30 free parking in the front but we weren't... More

Firstly, this restaurant has moved to a brand new location in 2011 remaining in the city of Monterey Park. Address: 500 N Atlantic Blvd Suite 171 - in the new mall in the corner of Atlantic/W Hellman just a stone's throw from Freeway 10. I am not a fan of vegetarian cuisine and I see no apparent reason to go... More

Mixed reviews on the service. In my opinion, that happened to almost every Chinese restaurant I went to. I don't know whether the waiters are rude or that's the way they are. I guess I don't really care, because I keep coming back :-) LOL I don't like any of the shrimp and fish dishes. My personal fav: House Chicken... More

I enjoyed the food it was very different. I found the service not to be so great. You will find good food at a great price. A wonderful place to take friends to experience something, not a first date place.
