This restaurant offers a large selection of standard fare Chinese food in enormous portions. Most patrons appear to take food home with them at the end of their meal. Spacious seating in large space. Satisfied dining experience, although not above expectation.

We had a great authentic Chinese meal in a very clean, classic building in the heart of downtown Idaho Falls! Be sure to bring your appetite, you won't be disappointed. The owners obviously take great pride in their dishes. Everything was fresh and flavorful.

Here you can dine in, carry out, or get delivery food. The food is what you'd expect given that type of business. When I crave Chinese food I do order delivery but don't expect authentic Chinese food.

Another favorite for a nice lunch, dinner or takeout. Located downtown or on 17th Street, Happy's offers a nice selection of dishes at a reasonable price. Spicy dishes can be toned down or heated up to taste. Fresh vegetables and really good lo mein. Also,...More
