You don't know what to expect sometimes without a lot of reviews and being in a small town. This was some of the Oriental food I have experienced in a long time. Service was great, food came out promptly and most of all so flavourful. Had Hunan shrimp, fried chicken wings, egg drop soup, and shrimp fried rice. Try this... More

It's your typical American Chinese but is really good. Id recommend the general tso's. It is sort of a dirty place inside, but if you're looking for good Chinese it's a good place to go

The food/value is ok if you go for the buffet lunch. The worker's child kept coming to our table and talking/touching our personal belongings and was unattended much of the time we were there.

This place should have better reviews than it does. This is our go-to place for Chinese food for the past 4 years. I haven't been disappointed with an order yet. The folks who work here are always friendly and the food is always ready quickly.

Happy Gardens was highly recommended by the staff at the Holiday Inn Express. The fact that they would deliver was a big plus for us. We ordered Crab Rangoon, Egg Drop Soup, Spring Egg Rolls and Sweet & Sour Chicken with rice. We didn't have to wait very long for delivery. Everything except the Crab Rangoon was very good. I'm...

Very friendly young owners serving good Chinese food at a fair price. They have a pretty extensive menu with both dine-in and carry out available.

Recommended twice to us by locals as the best Chinese in town (I would be surprised if there are more than two) we tried it on Saturday night. I was surprised it wasn't busier. The menu offers three chef's special dishes, chef recommended dishes as well as a fairly extensive assortment of traditional Chinese-American dishes. We tried the fried dumplings... More

Had a hankering for Chinese food and I was NOT disappointed. They had great cheese wontons, pork wontons, and broccoli in garlic sauce (ordered as spicy) which was superb, and overall a great meal. Will definitely order from them again.

SO comforting to know you can go to your favorite, home-town Chinese restaurant and know you will have a meal you will LOVE! Tonight we were in a bit of a hurry and just wanted a simple dinner to share, so we stopped at Happy Gardens in Orange, Va., for chicken lo-mein. Our meal was on the table in five... More
