After using this restaurant weekly for over 7 years I will never buy food their again management is rude and threatened to call the police because I rang to complain. As I can see they have already lost a heap of customers since the new people took over I'm sure this place is being run into the ground with horrible... More

Decided to try out some local Chinese cuisine in Sydney today, having travelled and lived in Asia, mainly enjoying Chinese food around Singapore and Hong Kong, we really do know and love our Chinese food! Happy Inn however was quite a disappointment. We had ordered dim sum for starters and it had come without a dipping sauce. When we had... More

Did this restaurant go downhill rapidly after November 2013? I'm seeing all these positive reviews before November 2013 and it doesn't sound like we've been to the same restaurant. This restaurant is a disgrace to Chinese cuisine and targets Westerners who don't know better. You can get cheaper and way better quality chinese food ANYWHERE in the Sydney CBD, In... More

We had the lunch special midweek and were amazed at how good it was for the price. Service was very good and an entree is included in the price. The restaurant is spacious but could do with cleaning of the carpets as they were stained. This would also freshen the air as there was a stale food smell which hit... More

The staff could try to smile a little and live up to the name of the restaurant. Apart from this, we found the staff attentive and efficient. The food was delicious, reasonably priced, served hot and in quick time. The restaurant has plenty of seating and a pleasant decor, will come back.

This place should be called Crappy Inn, each of our 3 choices were absolutely revolting. "Noodles" were just a pile of dry packet noodles (still dry and crunchy) covered in a cold and tasteless jar "sauce" finished with fatty revolting pieces of "meat" on top. A combination "hot pot" was just full of slimy huge chunks of tofu. For a... More

We read all the good reviews for this restaurant so we tried it, what a big mistake. The food was terrible, the service was poor and the price was way expensive. YUK YUK YUK
