We tried this place when we first moved to town on someone's recommendation (I didn't know the person very well). I am a Chinese food snob, and have had a lot of Chinese food over the years and have spent many years working at Chinese restaurants and this place is not good AT ALL. No flavor, watery chow mein and... More

My evening to cook, so I headed to Happy Garden as we both were wanting Chinese. The place is now touted as the "New" Happy Garden and I noticed a lot of change in the menu. Went with the Appetizer platter, an order of Marfar chicken and an order of the Sweet and Sour Shrimp, Chicken and Pork, both of... More

We love the Chinese food served here. The Orange Chicken is the best I've had anywhere! Take out of town folks here and have yet to hear any complaints.

When I heard that the once very reliable Happy Garden restaurant in St. Helens was closing, I wasn't much troubled; it had been going downhill for months. However when I heard that a new Chinese restaurant was opening in the same location, being quite fond of Chinese food I was keen to give it a try. I'm very glad I... More

The owners sold and a new crew just came out with a new menu, the prices are about 10-20% higher, still fairly reasonable. There is still a lunch combo menu with good values. Overall, the BBQ pork is recommended, tender & tasty. The food we had today was cooked by different chef, the meat was not caramelized in the beef... More

Everything is made at the time of your order, from fresh ingredients. The sauces are tasty, the portions generous and the service is excellent. We eat here often and have found nothing else tht compares to the quality of this Asian Food.

Happy Garden is located in a strip mall across from WalMart. We have found the service to be friendly and efficient and the food consistent. Many items are prepared there with fresh vegetables rather than a reheat from the local Chinese restaurant wholesaler. The prices are reasonable and portions generous.

Thank Pat L
