Went here at an odd time of the day but luckily the lunch specials ran until 4:00. Every meals comes with wonton strips & dipping sauce to enjoy before the meal arrives. Each meal comes with soup -I got wonton soup. It had s good flavor. My main dish was chicken, mushroom & pea pod with fried rice. It was a large portion & had to bring some home. I also ordered hot tea & it came in a large teapot.

Some people call this THE BEST Chinese food in New Orleans and boy are they wrong. All the food came out lukewarm and greasy. The San Shin Soup for 2 was lacking in flavor, the egg rolls were 99% cabbage, the ribs were tough, and the crab rangoon was one big lump of cream cheese. Since the appetizers were so appalling we skipped ordering entrees and left. Oh, the waiter was rude and acted as if he didn't want to be at work. Definitely not going back.

Was disappointed that service was lackluster and the food wasn't exceptional either. The server had difficulty explaining the daily specials when asked and said that it's the same everyday. The server dropped the food and never followed up with us and had to hunt him down to pay the bill.

My husband enjoyed the sweet & sour, my garlic shrimp was so so. Felt like there was little value for ordering the full dinner plate, again disappointed.

Five Happiness serves excellent Chinese food at attractive prices in a pleasant atmosphere.
Lunches are served at reduced prices until about 3:30 pm daily. Entrée dishes are large enough for two and are explained on the menu. Hot and spicy dishes can be tempered to taste. Quality is consistent with the two owners watching operations at all times. Service is quick and accurate.
An excellent choice if Chinese is your goal.

My husband & I along with my sister & brother-in- law visited there about a week ago. My husband stuck to his usual twice cooked pork, egg rolls, & hot & sour soup. The three others had a spicy shrimp dish with vegetables wit egg roll, soup. All was delicious! Every meal I have had there has been delicious!
