Slow to restock buffet

We arrived for dinner around 6:00 pm. The buffet did not have at least 5 main foods. The waitress was slow on refilling the drinks. Once the food was available, it was decent.

My family and I have eaten at Happy Garden for as long as they've have been open. I read some of the comments and couldn't believe them. We've never had any problem with the buffet good or service. There are not many chinese restaurants around town but this is the only choice for us. After I travel and have Chinese... More

The food at this restaurant is below standards, disgusting and so not worth it. The food was old, lukewarm and very greasy not to mention our drinks were served warm which by the way was pink lemonade..hands down one of the worst places I've ever eaten at

If you are going to own a restaurant in our country, you need to understand our laws! You cannot discriminate against people with service animals. My daughter is blind and has a guide dog. You refused to serve her and laughed at her to her face. Even after the police came and the news reported about you, you are still... More

Do not eat here. I was denied access because I am visually impaired and have a service animal monday night. When I tried to explain to the staff about the Americans for Disabilities Act, they laughed and mocked me. Do not support an establishment like this.

Happy Garden is the only chinese restaurant I eat at. Have been going for years!! Love the buffet! I usually have a three trip (to the buffett) minimum at every visit. I start out with soup, then the entree, then a little more entree! The only complaint I have is the temperature. Is is usually too warm inside the restaurant.... More

If I could give Happy Garden 0 stars I would. Last night the staff at Happy Garden refused service because of a clearly marked seeing eye dog. They laughed when they were informed how illegal it is to discriminate against the visually impaired and still refused service. I will never eat at the place again and I would encourage everyone...

The staff denied service to a customer because she brought her seeing-eye dog with her. Not only is that illegal, it's completely horrible to judge someone based on a disability. And they simply laughed when they were told that it was illegal to deny service to someone because of a disability. Happy Garden is a truly terrible restaurant that needs... More

Happy Garden has been my favorite Chinese restaurant for years. They just have items on the buffet that I love. To me the green beans are hands down the best green beans I have ever eaten out. The manager and wait staff are awsome.

Happy Garden is great. I love their Wonton soup. It has pieces of ham in it that just set it through the roof. A large selection on the buffet. Something for everyone.
