Alway Fresh and Spicy to Taste

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... read more

This was my first time here. The food was incredible; some of the best I've ever had. I will definitely be going back.

Here you can dine in, carry out, or get delivery food. The food is what you'd expect given that type of business. When I crave Chinese food I do order delivery but don't expect authentic Chinese food.

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

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,
