They are consistently good. They are always ready when you come for take out. They do not forget anything. Their consistency has continued for 15 years...that's how long we have been going

Had dinner there last night and was not impressed. First when we walked in, anodor hit me which smelled like a cross between someone's stomach having a bad hair day and something spoiled in salt water. It had been a long time since we were last there, so I decided to give it a chance. The staff was friendly and... More

Consistently the best of the many Chinese restaurants in Germantown. Delivery is wicked fast, but the food and obviously presentation is much better when you eat in. Atmosphere is typical sit down Chinese, but the lazy susan tables are fun. Seriously, the food here is so much better than the other Chinese choices in Germantown.

I ate dinner here with two other adults on a Friday evening. There are booths and various size tables available. The décor is almost none existent. Could use a designer's touch. The food was served hot and plentiful. I ordered the cashew and chicken dish and there was a lot of chicken and the sauce had a good flavor. They... More

I like spicy food but Happy Uncles seemed to think salt was the only spice. They must have left all their meat in brine for days. Yuck.

The food is good. It's inexpensive. The decor is outdated and not very inviting. I recommend it for a family with kids.

We'd been searching for good Chinese food for a while so were happy to find Happy Uncle. The food is excellent! We've now eaten here many times and the food is always well prepared and delicious. The waitstaff is also very good. The atmosphere is nothing fancy but it's a great place to eat with family or friends. Great value... More
