This was right across from our motel so we walked across the street. Décor had lots of real flowers and plants, really nice. Food was good and reasonable priced Would eat here again

I've had better I've had worse. Portions were great. Wonton soup was tasty but missing a variety of vegetables. Combination rice gave me leftovers....very good the second day.

Soup bowls and portions large for sharing. Fresh green beans with pork was very tasty. Udon special was also tasty. Not sure you can go wrong with anything on menu. Great place to satisfy hunger while you wait for clothes to wash and dry.

The restaurant is directly across the street from the motel we stayed at so was a case of convenience rather than any special recommendation. The service was very good, the food very well cooked with very generous serves. Would recomend.

Looking for Asian food in the Monterey, CA area offers a couple of choices, but I went with Happy Dragon. The Happy Dragon is a very no frills location, with medium size seating areas immediately to the left and right of the entry way. The takeout ordering counter is directly in front of you as you come in the door,... More

This restaurant seemed quite unenthusiastic with service...we sat ourselves and service was extremely slow. Our orders were taken long after we sat down and decided. The food took a long time to be served...usually Chinese Restaurants have the food coming out to one rather quickly...we were surprised how long it took here. The dishes did not taste that great to... More

A great place for lunch or to grab a lunch plate to... More

The service is always prompt and friendly. We love the walnut prawns and egg rolls. The food is fresh and has a little bit of a Vietnamese twist to it. Lots of good food for a reasonable price.
