I've had several items from their menu and so far everything has been good! I would've given them 5 stars if they took my Discover card. But that's the only downside to Happy Garden!

I was excited to try Diana's Happy Garden as it was highly reviewed online. Our entire family went and no one was bowled over. I can say the Hot and Sour soup was one of the better ones that I have tasted and my husband said the same about the egg flower. However the General Chicken, lemon chicken, sesame beef... More

The food here is great. It is prepared with fresh ingredients. Service is good. My only complaint would be that we were given very little tea, 2 cups each.

We had been searching a long time for a good Chinese food restaurant and we finally found an excellent one with Diana's. My husband and I go there at least twice a month and it has never disappointed. Diana is always there and greets us as we enter; friendly, sincere and always smiling or laughing. My husband loves the Kung... More

I've been to Happy Gardens several times now. The food is always hot and yummy. The service is always quick and friendly. And the prices are less expensive even than a fast-food Chinese place not many blocks away. Nice for family sit-down lunch and dinner, and even for take-home dinners too.

I'm from Keizer but was passing through Cornelius when it was time for lunch so with the help of Trip Advisor I chose Diana's Happy Garden. I had an appetizer of Pot Stickers which were cooked perfectly and a lunch special of Kung Pao Beef. The Kung Pao was wonderful with lots of Lo Mein and a Spring Roll to... More

Diana's has the best tasting chinese type food I have eaten. No MSG and the sauces are all made from scratch in house. They are not from a premixed container bought in bulk. The result is the best tasting chinese food ever! She serves a hot tea and a choice of soup included in the price of the dish. And... More

The wife and I ate here for the first time last night. We both were very happy with the service and the food. We will most definitely be going back! Very clean and prompt service. We saw a couple leaving just after we sat down and they were there cleaning the table before the couple had made it out the... More

This is by far the best Chinese Food I have ever eaten. It was made to order and came out piping hot and fresh! The staff is very friendly and I couldn't be happier. I am coming back here at least once a week!

After some not-so-good experiences with Chinese dining, we were very happy to find this restaurant. Everything was fresh and hot and the serving sizes were perfect. If we lived nearby, we'd eat there often.
