We had the Cashew Chicken and the Mongolian Beef. The only choice for fried rice is Pork Fried Rice. The only other rice choice is white rice. In places frequented in the past, the fried rice is usually meat free and fried up fresh. When I asked about having a meatless fried rice, the server gave me a strange stare.... More

Being new to this area we are trying to find places to eat. This little place is reasonably priced. Quality of food was really good as well as the quantity. Service was friendly and prompt. I would have given this place a five star rating but special requests were not well taken in the kitchen. My girlfriend wanted her honey... More

I've always liked anything I order here especially the Sezchuen Chicken. The service is prompt and friendly and the wait time is minimal but best of all the food is delicious. The restaurant is always spotless. I have eaten at all the Asian Restaurants in St Helens and Happy Garden far exceeds the others. Stir fry veggies are very fresh... More

We tried this place when we first moved to town on someone's recommendation (I didn't know the person very well). I am a Chinese food snob, and have had a lot of Chinese food over the years and have spent many years working at Chinese restaurants and this place is not good AT ALL. No flavor, watery chow mein and... More

My evening to cook, so I headed to Happy Garden as we both were wanting Chinese. The place is now touted as the "New" Happy Garden and I noticed a lot of change in the menu. Went with the Appetizer platter, an order of Marfar chicken and an order of the Sweet and Sour Shrimp, Chicken and Pork, both of... More

We love the Chinese food served here. The Orange Chicken is the best I've had anywhere! Take out of town folks here and have yet to hear any complaints.

When I heard that the once very reliable Happy Garden restaurant in St. Helens was closing, I wasn't much troubled; it had been going downhill for months. However when I heard that a new Chinese restaurant was opening in the same location, being quite fond of Chinese food I was keen to give it a try. I'm very glad I... More

The owners sold and a new crew just came out with a new menu, the prices are about 10-20% higher, still fairly reasonable. There is still a lunch combo menu with good values. Overall, the BBQ pork is recommended, tender & tasty. The food we had today was cooked by different chef, the meat was not caramelized in the beef... More
