Wow! How did we wait so long to try this? Double Happiness left us doubly happy! Our server, Maddie, was vegan! She was able to point us in the right direction for delicious, cruelty-free food. We started out with the vegetarian lettuce wraps (heaven!). I ordered the double green curry, and my husband ordered the vegetable stir fry. Both were... More

We went last night with 5 people. After some short seating confusion, we had no reservation, we were led to our table. I ordered the hot and sour soup which was excellent, while everyone else got won ton, which also got raves. Entrees we ordered were Mongolian beef, string beans, Szechuan egg plant and shrimp with rice cakes. Each plate... More

Everyone has a a favorite Chinese restaurant. Our favorite Chinese restaurant closed awhile ago. e have tried several and heard of this little place on the corner of Wrightsville and Kerr. The staff are as sincere as they can be, the dining area clean, well lit and comfortable. They obviously prepare each serving just after the order is placed. The... More

This is one of the best Chinese restaurants in which I have eaten outside of San Francisco. Tofu noodle dish with bok chou was so flavorful, as was the won ton soup with fresh crispy noodles, and mandarin chicken.

Was looking for some take out and in the mood for Chinese. I was surprised at how good this place was. Got it again later in the week and got lo mein and coconut cake this time. Lo mein was excellent and the cake part was good. The only thing was the frosting on the cake was just whipped cream... More

A nice dining experience. I counted down only because service was a little slow. Portions were generous.

While in Wilmington last week I saw the commercial for Double Happiness and I was curious so I decided to give them a try and I’m sure glad I did. This restaurant does not offer much as far as looks there are no water front views or luxury interior but the food is excellent; the taste and quality of the... More

This restaurant is a bit out of the way but so worth it! The appetitizers were great and so were the main dishes. Lots of food with wonderful flavors. Service was very good.

This out of the way restaurant has the best Chinese food in Wilmington. With all the "run of the mill" Chinese places around, Double Happiness stands out with unique freshly prepared dishes with plenty of options to try over multiple visits. We dine out often and love to try different places but unfortunately have found few places in Wilmington that... More

Food pretty good, except for: 1. The Chinese chips they brought before the meal were very stale and when we mentioned to the waitress, she way too quickly snapped back saying they must have overcooked them - what a bunch of boloney 2. The Hot-&-Sour soup was a bit too thick with thickeners and lacked true flavor 3. The meal... More
