Lunch Buffet

The Physics workshop group I was with decided on Chinese for lunch, so we made our way to the Happy Gardens lunch buffet. The staff (two people) had no trouble sliding a couple of tables together for the 10 of us, and were very quick to keep our glasses full. The buffet was very good, with a... read more

Went back to the Happy Garden the other night for dinner. I ordered the Cashew Shrimp. It had plenty of large shrimp with mixed veggies. Most of my experience with them has been "take out". It appears that a large portion of their business still is. While service was slow, it was a good meal.

We have been eating wonderful meals at Happy Garden on Main Street in downtown Orange for almost 20 years - a record for Orange when many other restaurants have closed, re-opened, and closed again! The food at Happy Garden is delicious and dependable. We've gone as a couple and also taken our families there. It's a favorite! We often enjoy... More

We had the buffet lunch here as we passed through on our road trip. The lunch was very reasonably priced and the food was excellent. The buffet was replenisihed frequently, so nothing ran out, there was a good choice of dishes for mains and desserts.

The wait staff are very nice and the prices are great especially because you get a large portion that you can take home and eat at work or lunch the... More

My family eats at Happy Garden frequently, the food is reasonably priced and the quality of the food is good. The egg rolls are probably the best around the central VA area, they are thin crusted filo. The sauces are very authentic, we love the hunan shrimp. During lunch time they do have a small buffet, but it ends at... More
