“The lunch specials are served Monday thru Saturday.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

It was nice to be able to enjoy a lunch special (all under $10!!!) on a Saturday. Usually, in most restaurants, the specials are only on weekdays. The shrimp egg fu young is my favorite, and is rarely seen on menus anymore. The hot and sour soup was the best I have had. My husband and son enjoyed their lunches equally as well, and we look forward to returning there again soon.

“A great change of taste!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

After staying in downtown New Orleans for a couple of weeks I was looking for a change of pace and taste and found an ad for Five Happiness in a local travel magazine. The atmosphere is "away-from-it-all" nice, service friendly and knowledgeable and best of all......the food is really good!

“Delicious!”

Five Happiness easily accessible from Uptown and Mid-City. The food is well flavored and the atmosphere is nice. It is well priced and there are very reasonable lunch specials.

“Best Chinese in New Olreans!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Five Happiness is a great Chinese restaurant with consistently good food, excellent service, and reasonable prices. Peggy Lee and Rose, the owners are at the restaurant supervising operations at all times, maintaining the excellent quality the restaurant has had since its inception in 1976. Lunches are reasonable at $6-$8 including soup, rice, and entre. Dinners are a little more but portions are larger.
The Hot and Sour soup is one of my favorites. The Hunan dishes are great and can be tailored to various tastes of spice. Don’t miss the Sizzling Beef (also known as Sizzling Steak Kew). It comes on a hot platter with mushrooms, steak slices, green beans, onions, red peppers, all in a thick brown gravy. The portion is large enough to serve two and still have take-home.
Located on Carrollton Avenue it is easy to reach and large enough that you can almost always get a table.
Great Chinese food!
Highly recommended.

“Very popular neighborhood restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

The food is great and plentiful and the locals fill the place to the gills every weekday for lunch. It's also very popular on the weekends, as well.
