One thing to know, Colorado Springs has a Korean community within it. So, a bad Korean restaurant will never survive here. And Colorado Springs has a big Asian Market, so the restaurants had best have good ingredients. Also, when I walked in to Happy Time, I was the only non-Asian in the place. I had never had Korean food before,... More

We've eaten dinner here twice and lunch once. We've enjoyed our meals each time. Most dinner meals are served with a large variety of side - mainly vegetables of various preparations in small dishes. Most lunch meals do not include the same amount of food but are still quite satisfying. By far, my favorite dish is the Korean BBQ Beef... More

Happy Time, while having a hilarious name, had delicious food. We basically cleaned our plates it was so good. I ordered the teriyaki chicken, and my friend had some seafood soup (I'm allergic to seafood so I didn't pay too much attention). It's a bit of a hole in the wall in a strip mall, which can be a good... More

Very cute little restaurant in strip plaza. Service was great and place was very clean. We had the Bulgogi (pork and beef) and one that was spicy. The spicy one was the best but all of them were flavor and as expected for most places I've had Korean food.

We tried Happy Time tonight. Our spicy beef bulgogi was simply outstanding. It came with several excellent sides. All four of us raved about the food. They do gluten and dairy free entrees. Thy also offer a military discount.

The sides are very good. Kimchi, and all others. I had the Bulgogi, the meat was not very good. It was average and overcooked I thought. The service was okay. Everything was cooked on the spot so that is why the wait is long. But I did not mind. The service was okay. Americans want eveything in a hurry but... More

My advice is to go here when there are no more than two other people in the place, otherwise you may end up waiting an hour like we did. On top of that, the server (owner?) brought us the wrong meal and took it away to give to the correct table. We got there at 12:15 noontime and were served... More

OMG...so yummy! I lived in Korea for a year and nostaligc cravings made me come here. I really liked their Bulgogi, Bi-bim-bap, Jap-Chae and Kimbap. Even their side dishes (pickled cucumbers, Korean pancake and Kimchi) were super delicious. Service was fast and attentive. Loved the atmosphere of the small restaurant and especially the view to Pikes peak from my table.

Thank Nicole H
