Refined chinese cuisine

The restaurant is nice and quite typical inside. There is a room with special low floor tables, able to project you in far distant lands in very short time. The food is in general quite good, definitely better from what you can find on the market at a lower price (which could 1 or 2 stars). The... read more

I was pleasantly surprised! I walked in to a tastefully decorated, serene atmosphere....and it only got better. The service and food were both excellent. The menu is extensive. Christine, our server, graciously answered our questions and gave excellent advice regarding various selections. I was double happy with my experience at Double Happiness!

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
