Good food

We really enjoy the food here. Small family run business who takes pride in their food. If you are at a table of 8 or more & it is busy you will wait a little longer for the plates to come to the table but it's worth waiting for.

This restaurant is conveniently located across the street from the Nevada Hotel. My son & I dined in on this occasion. The restaurant is seat yourself, very narrow, but extends into a 20 seat banquet room halfway in. Since it was cold this evening, I ordered the seafood soup; my son ordered the Orange Chicken dinner special. These 2 items... More

Boring, bland shrimp fried rice. I got it as a take-out order, so I can't say anything about service or atmosphere, but based on this one meal, I doubt I'll return.

We are Canadian snowbirds who pass through Ely twice a year. AND when we had our first dinner at Happy Garden, we could not believe how absolutely delicious it was. We order twice as much as can eat so we can have the leftovers the next day. We never miss going there. The service is great. The food is always... More

We ordered take out food from here. The food was fine, no complaints. Typical American Chinese food.

Fairly standard Chinese menu. Good flavors and very good prices. Looks small when you enter, but extra, larger room. Cute booths for two.

As the title suggests, these egg rolls are amazing. They are loaded with ginger, and just are great. The personal dinner combos make ordering easier for smaller crowds. At most places, I like to order different things to try something new. Yet, here I find myself always ordering the Chin Ju chicken, a dish I'm convinced they made up (which... More

Great service, great chinese, great portions, great value, great location... just go! Nothing not to like! Unless you're not a fan of Chinese food. Big room in the back to accomodate larger parties, fyi.

Had dinner with a group of friends and the service was fabulous. Would eat there again, wonderful Chinese food, right off of Main St. (Aultman).

Happy Garden's Chinese Restaurant, 562 Aultman St., Ely NV, tel. 775-289-3313. This is a nicely decorated but a cold space, even with two portable heaters. It is also a classic, American-Chinese restaurant from the 1950’s. The food was just like you’d expect. In keeping with that, we had one of their special soups ($7.95), one tofu with pork, one egg...
