I love the food, but don't come during a rush or you will be waiting a while. The spicy chicken is my favorite.

Happy Teriyaki is in a good location close to a couple of Tumwater motels. Eat in or take out. I always take out as it is fairly quick and I live close.

The thing that sets this Teriyaki place apart from others is that the meats are char broiled which adds so much flavor to their dishes. I won't eat teriyaki that isn't because original teriyaki is cooked over a flame because it adds flavor. I always get the Yaki Udon with chicken. Lots of udon noodles stir fried with veggies and...

Consistent quality in their food. Typical teriyaki place with all the options one expects. Prices are good, food comes out quickly, food is decent.

We brought takeout to our hotel room after a long day of driving. This food was really good, I especially enjoyed lots of steamed veggies with our teriyaki chicken and shrimp fried rice. A good choice if you're just wanting to kick back as we didn't see many other good options in the area.

Stopped to pick up lunch to go. Staff was very friendly. We needed to go cups and they gave us as many as we needed easily. Food was prepared fast and was very good.

Order and pay at counter. I ordered veggie bowl, came with white rice and steamed cabbage. No sauce. I dressed it up and made it ok but wouldn't eat there again. Server was kind and accomodated a party of 7.

This restaurant was recommended by the desk clerk at our hotel and for that we are thankful. You order the food at the counter and then take a seat to await table service. The options were numerous and varied at reasonable prices. This is not fine dining but the locals seem to know where to go for good food at... More

We had dinner at the Happy Teriyaki and were quite impressed. You order as you walk in at the counter which didn't really give us a lot of time to look at the menu items but what we chose was great. I had the soba noodle bowl with meat and veges and there was so much beef and veges in... More
