This restaurant offers a large selection of standard fare Chinese food in enormous portions. Most patrons appear to take food home with them at the end of their meal. Spacious seating in large space. Satisfied dining experience, although not above expectation.

Classic (American) Chinese! They have a how hot do you want scale! The meat is always juicy. Sauces are perfect. And you have to try the egg rolls!!!

I ordered delivery. It took a lot longer than it should have and when the kid dropped it off he went off complaining about his boss. Super unprofessional. Then the food was disgusting. The "lemon chicken" used the kind of lemon pudding sauce you get out of a can that fills doughnuts or pies, but not a good quality one.... More

We ordered carry out it being my first time eating there. We had 5 meals 3 of which were messed up and missing items. So we called thinking we would be able to get the missing items. Instead we got a rude lady on the phone that argued with us and told us we were wrong. Told us if we... More

We had a great authentic Chinese meal in a very clean, classic building in the heart of downtown Idaho Falls! Be sure to bring your appetite, you won't be disappointed. The owners obviously take great pride in their dishes. Everything was fresh and flavorful.

Here you can dine in, carry out, or get delivery food. The food is what you'd expect given that type of business. When I crave Chinese food I do order delivery but don't expect authentic Chinese food.

Another favorite for a nice lunch, dinner or takeout. Located downtown or on 17th Street, Happy's offers a nice selection of dishes at a reasonable price. Spicy dishes can be toned down or heated up to taste. Fresh vegetables and really good lo mein. Also, downtown location offers beer and wine. Best chinese in Idaho Falls!

The chef/owner and his are from China where he trained and is certified as a chef. His food is delicious and his recipes are original. Many of the dishes can be spiced as hot as you want. Portions are generous and prices are reasonable. Combo plates are a great way to try several dishes!
