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 The decor is outdated and not very inviting.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.

EVERY dish I have ever tried at this restaurant was ALWAYS delicious! They really know their stuff and the consistency is always spot-on!

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

This is a good place for a lunch buffet. The menu is uneven, there are some very good thing and some not so good. The price in low and on some dishes the quality suffers. I like the chicken with black bean sauce and the hot and sour noodle soup.

Once again our standby and once again they never fail to please. My wife and I went there to eat tonight. Same two servers that have been there for at least 15 years, tells you something about the people that run it. Food was great what can you say.

Take out food, service was slow, quantity somewhat small, hot and sour soup was too spicy without sour flavor. The pot stickers were too "doughy" with little flavor. Green beans needed more flavor. Chicken with cashews was decent but orange chicken was a bit too sweet. White rice was as expected. Hot oil and chilli flakes do not make flavor... More

Happy Uncle again as our fall back meal. Spring Rolls, Steamed Meat Dumplings and Hot and Sour Soup. All fresh, all hot and all good as usual. Best Chinese in Germantown IMHO.
