“Good casual Chinese food.”
Reviewed July 13, 2011

I've been going here for years. They changed owners in '09 and it got worse, they changed owners again last year and have been good again.

“Another change in ownership”
Reviewed July 13, 2011

Happy Garden has again changed owners (awhile back) and is now very good again! They are friendly, accommodating, and the food is MUCH improved from the previous owners. This restaurant has gone through at least 3 owners in the past few years but the current ones are very good.

“Once again good place for lunch”
Reviewed January 7, 2011

They have a lunch buffet which is nice and inexpensive, and the buffet also comes with
a soda with refills. They also offer a regular menu including children's offerings
that are 5.00. You can ask for chicken fried rice instead of pork fried rice.
I recommend going at lunch time for the buffet.
They are not fancy inside but OK.
Lunch buffet and lunch specials are only available Mon - Fri as far as I know.

They are located in a busy plaza which has parking for all the businesses in it.
I believe during the week they are open until 10 or 11pm; I'm not sure exactly.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed November 29, 2009

I've been in Happy Garden many times. Every time is great. They have excellent food, it's always fresh. Their prices are decent. My favorite are their rice and teriyaki chicken, it's the best around!

“Not as good....”
Reviewed June 20, 2009

I couldn’t agree with SMC88 more. Since Happy Garden II changed ownership the prices went up and food quality down. I’ve tried it several times too, wondering if I happened in on a bad day or something but, not the case. It’s unfortunate as it is right down the street from me and I’d go there 3-4 times a month. Once crab rangoons to die for – now - barely tolerable.
