Denizens of this burg by the sea probably can't image Chinese that isn't a buffet heaped up on a steam table and doused in soy or gloopy, starchy sweet sauce surrounded by soggy egg rolls. I hope they never discover Double Happiness because then I'll never be able to get a table here again. And I will come here again,... More

The food at Double Happiness is good. Went there for lunch twice in the past 3 weeks. The decor is worn out, but the restaurant is clean. Service is kind but not quick, went over our lunch time both times.

We love this place, we live in Leland. We'd come here more often but they are closed on Sunday. We had Tangerine Chicken (YUM) and Coconut Shrimp (also Yum) and enjoyed both very much. LARGE portions. The owner May is so sweet and we recommend this restaurant highly!

Although this restaurant doesn't have the old fashioned (sometimes musty) atmosphere of the Chinese sit down restaurants of days gone by, it does offer an old fashioned, and seemingly disappearing, cooked FRESH to order preparation that left me wanting to move to Wilmington - just for this food! I had a spicy shrimp dish. I was hesitant to order shrimp... More

Amazing amazing amazing dim sum. I made the mistake of putting too much spicy sauce into the vinegar, but if I hadn't they would have been just as good as NYC dim sum.

Recently had light dinner with a friend before going to Cinematique and we were not dissapointed. She had never eaten there so it was fund to see her enjoyment. First off our waitress was a lovely young lady who turned the A/C down a bit as it was freezing (we had sweaters on). My friend had a beer the waitress... More

We have visited Double Happiness before but with a party of 6 tonight we just told Mae Chen, one of the owners, to just pick some dishes for us. We had the Dim Sum double steamer and lettuce wraps to start. Then we had four main courses all of which were great. Bee finished with coconut cake and green tea... More

I visited this place a couple of weeks ago for my birthday and I'm glad I did. We came with a group and ordered four dishes to share-Mongolian Beef, Crispy Honey Shrimp, Firecracker Chicken, and Hong Kong Noodles. Everything was excellent, but the Honey Shrimp and Firecracker chicken were definitely my favorites. I've been craving them ever since! Service was... More

Asian food critics are quite vocal. Can't really understand why since few have been to Asia. I haven't been either so guess I'm rating America-Sino food. Whatever one calls it I'm thinking this place does a very good job. On any given night there may be a miss but we haven't experienced it.

We gave this place a try for take out after reading the many good reviews. We ordered a shrimp and a sea scallop entree along with two spring rolls for a total of $43.- (not to shabby for Chinese take out!) after arriving at home we noticed that the sea scallops we paid for were actually bay scallops (which have...
