Very busy even early in a Wednesday night. Been here before do knew three course meal would be too much! You get very generous portions! Ordered the mixed starter two mins and two rice. One rice would have been plenty for two. It was all delicious.

We were moved 5 times to accommodate other tables of bigger party's. The service is borderline rude, but the food is out of this world. We had the set menu which had everything you would ever want and take hours to eat. It is really busy so book ahead or be prepared to wait in the street for a table.

When you go to happy seasons, it's all about food, you have to que out side during lunch it is full of Chinese including take-away is is so good. Later in the afternoon you can get a table easily but the decoration & carpet need some attention. But the food & the cost is GREAT. PeterM24

Cosy, simple restaurant with a great menu. Family run vibe to it. We ate everything from the dim sum menu and and half a duck. For the two of us this was an impressive tasks. All were fresh and well made. Lots of locals here on repeat visits, a good sign if I've ever seen one.

Food is not bad! Try the sambal kangkong, claypot fish! But if you are bothered about services, dont try. They do not how to fix the best sitting arrangements.

After a few drinks on a Thursday night, decided to end the night here and wasn't disappointed. First time we have tried dim sum and now I'm hooked! Ordered a fillet of beef dish which delicious. Prices are very reasonable so will definitely be visiting again:-)

We had to queue for a table on a midweek lunchtime, the place was full of Chinese workers and families which speaks for itself. The wait was worth it, we had the best prawn dumplings, crispy won ton, steamed pork buns, crispy fried pork with egg fried rice and all for £18 including drinks. The decor is plain and there...

Definitely worth to queue outside if you have to. We had chicken sweet corn soup followed by beef with cashew nuts and sweet and sour chicken. Nice flavours and food is definitely better than in many other Chinese restaurants I've been. It's cheap too - all this with two drinks was £25.

I have been eating here for many years. It is a traditional restaurant specialising in meat - as in roasted duck, crispy belly pork, soy chicken and char siu. I do not recommend it for dim sum although 'starter' wise the soups are good as are the spring rolls and salt and pepper ribs. Do not bring people here for... More

I've dined here for lunch with my boyfriend. We both had soup followed by noodles. Both courses superb and portions were pretty big for the price. Highly recommend Happy Seasons! Definitely be back soon!
