Ate here for four consecutive days. Service is fast. Food is great and very Cantonese. Go for the roast meats and the chicken with either rice or noodles. The soup of the day is good, a blend of mustard leaves, tofu and shredded meat. Ambience is all about food.
Fantastic food, especially the genuine Beijing roast duck, which they are renowned for. It sells out quickly at the lunch service, so there is usually a queue outside waiting for them to open. In fact, expect to queue most of the time to get in! The food is mostly Cantonese alongside dim sum and fairly unadventurous, but what they do they do well. The service is truly bizarre and the standard of English mixed. Expect to be ushered in and out fairly curtly, and for your server to wander off mid taking your order. After the last mouthful goes down you will be thrust with the bill. But it all adds to the fun, and is totally worth it for the food you will enjoy. PS. The dish you can see everyone else eating is called "three roast meats on rice, warmed up, off the bone."
Lovely little restaurant. Big portions. Hot and sour soup gorgeous. Main meals are large so 2 mains between 3 people would be plenty. Food is tasty and they don't rush you like some restaurants. If you haven't booked be prepared for a little wait in line. We hadn't but only waited about 10 minutes for a table. But it was worth it.
Not high end dining but what it is, it does really well. Cheap, good tasting Chinese food.
I have been to Happy Seasons twice now with friends, both times the service and food has been excellent. We ordered set menu B for £21 per head. We asked to substitute one of the main items for another off set menu A which our host kindly accommodated. All the food was lovely asides from the sweet and sour fish however, my friend like it so, I can only put it down to personal opinion. The drinks and food prices are very reasonable, definitely below average for the area.
The setting is very clean, and although the decor is certainly not something to write home about. The restaurant is always filled with well mannered people and a table has always been found for us.
I will be certainly coming back.
Set menu B was on order - delicious, filling, speedy service. Exactly what you would want in a great Chinese dinner. Good for relaxed/cosy dates, nice dinners out that aren't too flashy (we are talking paper table cloths on top of linen ones), great place to go with friends, groups, colleagues. Everywhere else looked very quiet and this place very busy on a Wednesday night, so we popped in without a plan to go there. Can highly recommend, it was brilliant!
