I really like this place a lot. The food is great and service is fast. I like the people because they work quickly and don't waste your time. The option seem endless so I suggest check the big board. Enjoy!

The Happy Chef has to be the BEST for soups and Lakso in Chinatown. I usually buy my Laksa ONLY from the Happy Chef. Highly recommended
