We were staying close by at the CPO, (don't go there) and spotted this place in the square. Some of the signs are confusing outside, or maybe it's a test of our Portuguese knowledge, anyway we worked out which nights they were open and went in for a fabulous quality complete Chinese buffet at the fabulous price of 10.25 euro per person, the food selection was brilliant all the food was hot and presented very well. The sweets selection is limited, but to be honest you don't go to a Chinese restaurant for the sweets, do you?
If you need glasses for reading then take them with you to the buffet bar, as ALL the menu item descriptions are on very small typewritten labels and a lot of the food looks the same. One of our party got a serving of shredded duck with pancakes and thought it tasted funny until we went back and found he had actually chosen shredded pork instead.
The staff are very friendly and efficient, they are quick to serve drinks and they bring hot towels and a complementary shot of your choice after your meal.
We will definitely go back if we are in the area again.

Great place - buffet is such good value and the quality of the food is superb. Can get very busy from 7.30 onwards so best to go there early - enjoy!

We went here once on our visit to Portugal. The food was ok, the price was cheap and cheerful. I liked that they gave out free shot.

When some of the food trays were refilled they got mixed up. So ended up with bananna dumplin instead of chicken balls

So good we went twice (don't judge us!). Really, genuinely great food that was fresh, hot and incredibly tasty. Massive selection and surprisingly civilised considering the set up. I did see one man plough enough jelly on to his plate to open a kids play centre but all in all people queued in an orderly fashion and didn't need wheelbarrows to cart their food back to their tables.

Really lovely service from such a busy restaurant...all staff seem very busy and in control. Even though there were people waiting to be seated, you didn't feel at all rushed. You ate and left in your own time. Amazing value...kids under 3 (I think) were free and 4year olds were just a few Euro's.

Really really recommend it. Have reviewed some other eateries in the area.

We were looking for a relaxed chinese restaurant and saw the reviews for Happy House - and we weren't disappointed. Even the taxi driver said it was always busy - although it was 'quiet season'.
Staff were friendly and the food was tasty. The buffet-style of service is ideal if you want to take your time and then try things you may not want a whole portion of.
Enjoyable night....and a taxi rank is immediately outside, which is handy.
