Took ages for the meal to arrive. The Mongolian beef was delicious, but I had to ask for rice (the waiter didn't ask when we ordered). The dim sims were dry, horrible in fact. I was told they were a popular dish - had to ask for soy sauce. Only ate half of one dim sim, told the waiter, still... More

Ordered a take away from this restaurant. When I arrived to collect it on a Friday night the restaurant was empty but with lots if people collecting take away meals, so I anticipated a good meal when I arrived home. What a disaster!!!! The Satay prawns consisted of raw onions and opaque prawns! It was nasty! The chicken and vegetables... More

It has been a while since I have been to this Chinese Restaurant. We used to go regularly, but it just got worse and worse. Needless to say, we haven't been back lately. I have never particularly enjoyed the setting as it's open, noisy and rather unattractive, but if the food is ok, one overlooks many things. However, the last... More

We have been to the restaurant before and thought we would try take away, bad mistake. We ordered a family pack and was really disappointed. All of the dishes were more than 50% celery. The chicken chow mien had absolutely no flavour and was sat in a pool of water. The black bean beef was overly salty. This is the... More

We have eaten at many Chinese restaurants over the years ... and have been disappointed many times over. Happy Garden has never disappointed. We have brought many family members visiting from overseas and friends here for dinner .. and the food is always tasty and well prepared. We never book as it is always easy to get a table. Parking...

This place has all the usual Chinese dishes on the menu so lots to choose from. I always find the service quite slow, but there are not a lot of Chinese Restaurants to choose from in the area.

Located opposite Kyling Corner in Cleveland, parking is never a problem. We dine here every couple of months with the family and it has been consistently good. Service is usually prompt as we eat early and the place is not busy at that stage. There are ample entree and main choices and reasonable prices. The drink selection is also adequate.... More

I experienced Happy Garden last Friday night. The dining room is large and rather bland, and only one table had diners. The other ten people were all waiting for takeaway. I took this as a good sign. The staff were friendly and efficient, but the customers were getting restless. I learned why when a diner beside me muttered "Better be... More

Take away order was mixed up. Phoned them asked what they could do as we had already started eating it. Their response was perhaps next time we could get a discount - not really good enough. The food that we did get (Chicken and vegetables instead of chicken curry and singapore noodles instead of sate chicken) was poor quality -... More
