“Small place, efficient service & very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

We had very enjoyable meals. I had the crispy garlic shrimp. It was spicy and delicious. My partner had hot and sour soup and curried chicken. The soup wasn't the best ever but was good. The curried chicken was also good. A generous helping of rice accompanied the meal. Servers were very speedy and refilled water. All workers were friendly.

Good take out, resonable pricing. We walked down there from Hotel Indigo, placed an order and it was ready in 10 min. Got it back to the hotel and ate. Good chinese take out!

“Friendly local restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

We eat here about once a week. Owner will make food that has no sugar in it for me and they do not use MSG. Exceptionally accommodating. They still have the big old NY style egg rolls. Nice setting in Del Mar, large menu, lots of old favorites, we had a double order of BBQ ribs the other night and they were perfect, owner and staff are friendly and when it is not to busy we have time to chat. It is like a lot of the Chinese places back East in my youth not like SF. Take out is a bargain as they discount it, portions are large. You won't go wrong eating here, we never have.

“The Best Chinese Food in SOCAL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

The Double Happiness is a family style Chinese restaurant located in beautiful Del Mar, serving simply the best Chinese food you could ask for, both Mandarin and Szechuan. The location in the middle of Del Mar is very convenient, but from the outside it does not give a good impression, and the interior is a little disappointing but very clean, however any lack of sophisticated interior design is well made up for by the superb food on offer. Authentic Chinese food served by a very friendly staff is not to be missed when in Del Mar.
During our dinner there was a constant stream of locals picking up their "To Go" orders, and as they say "if the locals like it it must be good".
For Chinese food lovers this is must, I have eaten all over Taiwan and Mainland China and never had better.
