Another favorite for a nice lunch, dinner or takeout. Located downtown or on 17th Street, Happy's offers a nice selection of dishes at a reasonable price. Spicy dishes can be toned down or heated up to taste. Fresh vegetables and really good lo mein. Also, downtown location offers beer and wine. Best chinese in Idaho Falls!

The chef/owner and his are from China where he trained and is certified as a chef. His food is delicious and his recipes are original. Many of the dishes can be spiced as hot as you want. Portions are generous and prices are reasonable. Combo plates are a great way to try several dishes!

We ate at the Happy's in downtown Idaho Falls for dinner. It is located in a renovated historic space that may be beat described as Asian art deco". We both ordered one of the combination platters for $8.95 which were nicely presented with very generous portions. The eggroll and the fried shrimp were both outstanding !! The lo mein was... More

17th Street Happy's Express. Same owners. Worst food I have ever eaten. Everything we ordered had a horrible rancid flavor like it had been cooked in really bad old, rancid oil. We tried the chicken, beef, loo mein and fried rice. All of it had the same horrible flavor. When I called about it asking if I could take the... More

We love this restaurant. It is the best Chinese food in town. Also, it just changed locations. It is now on the corner of Shoup and B street.

We were tired and wanted good food that was not pizza that would deliver. Happy's fit the bill. They delivered (we stayed at the Best Western, Driftwood Inn). Good food, but a tiny bit pricey,

Happy Chinese is a well known institution in Idaho Falls for great Chinese food. Now that they have a 2nd location on 17th Street, there are more choices to enjoy. The Take-out choice offers a great alternative to hamburgers and tacos, bringing us great food at very reasonable prices, and fast service with a kind smile. The servings are very... More

I have never eaten better Chinese Food. Their sweet and sour chicken is Devine. Their Concubine Chicken is like nothing you have ever tasted. I do not agree with other posters about bad service. I have never seen bad service there. You get seated immediately. They are friendly and check on you often. They even remember us and our families,... More
