The old huge Three Happiness was torn down and they are now located in a small storefront on Cermak. We loved dim sum at the old restaurant and we almost didn't go in since it didn't really look like it could be the same. We...More

Nationwide Cantonese restaurants are getting rarer to find. I believe cooks are dying off and the tradition isn't being passed on. They're still carrying on the tradition here. The restaurant is awfully small but they did have the NFL on the big screen. I wasn't...More

My husband and I flew in after midnight and checked into our hotel. The front desk recommended this place to eat since it is open into the wee hours. Service was good and the food seemed very fresh. I enjoyed the wonton soup! The portions...More

I have been a faithful patron of this establishment 2or 3 times a week for 20 years. Needless to say every restaurant has its ups and downs but here I'm saddened. Food and service used to be great. Now it's just average. You used to...More

Chinatown has a lot of dining options and Three Happiness is the best for the price. Inexpensive, large servings and numerous options are the highlights. Hot and sour soup was delicious.

Tipically Chinese food. Quick service and menu's with pictures. Let the personel advice you on your choice, because the pictures are hard to interpret.

Not every restaurant in Chinatown is open 24 hours, but if you have a craving for Chinese food in the middle of the night, Three Happiness is one very good possibility. It is a small restaurant, but it works. I particularly love the shrimp fried...More

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
