Sadly the dim sims were luncheon meat, two mains were cold, one wasn't what we ordered oh and they charged us corkage on a bottle we brought from them! Sham

I was a little apprehensive when i saw the reviews on TA for this place, however, maybe we got luck or something has changed as we ordered a fair amount of take away food and we could not fault a single dish. It was all tasty, hot and used fresh ingredients. The restaurant itself looked sterile and soulless though.

The menu is never-ending and the food is traditional and tasty but the service is minimal and cold and the atmosphere is very clinical. Would rather get take away than sit in the restaurant.

Took ages for the meal to arrive. The Mongolian beef was delicious, but I had to ask for rice (the waiter didn't ask when we ordered). The dim sims were dry, horrible in fact. I was told they were a popular dish - had to ask for soy sauce. Only ate half of one dim sim, told the waiter, still... More

Ordered a take away from this restaurant. When I arrived to collect it on a Friday night the restaurant was empty but with lots if people collecting take away meals, so I anticipated a good meal when I arrived home. What a disaster!!!! The Satay prawns consisted of raw onions and opaque prawns! It was nasty! The chicken and vegetables... More

It has been a while since I have been to this Chinese Restaurant. We used to go regularly, but it just got worse and worse. Needless to say, we haven't been back lately. I have never particularly enjoyed the setting as it's open, noisy and rather unattractive, but if the food is ok, one overlooks many things. However, the last... More

We have been to the restaurant before and thought we would try take away, bad mistake. We ordered a family pack and was really disappointed. All of the dishes were more than 50% celery. The chicken chow mien had absolutely no flavour and was sat in a pool of water. The black bean beef was overly salty. This is the... More

We have eaten at many Chinese restaurants over the years ... and have been disappointed many times over. Happy Garden has never disappointed. We have brought many family members visiting from overseas and friends here for dinner .. and the food is always tasty and well prepared. We never book as it is always easy to get a table. Parking...
