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!
Being married to a Chinese guy, we've known this place for quite a long time. Looks nothing special from the outside, but the food.... in our opinion, the best traditional (real, proper) Chinese food you will find in the North. Know the manager fairly well, we mostly get takeaway from here - they don't deliver but it's definitely worth the walk. Book a table if your eating in, one of the few place in the city with a long queue outside.
Best known for their roasts - my personal favourite goes to the roasted duck - which you might need to reserve beforehand as it gets sold out quicker than other meats they do. Imo they are a little overpriced if you order stir friend vegetables so I suggest to stay away from veg options if you are seeking for good value. Otherwise, pricing is fine for this place, keep in mind that you might not get a seat during peak hours as there are only limited seats.
The worst Chinese food experience I've had. Staff there are passive-aggressive, rude and uncooperative. I ordered a starter which I didn't like, after eating a few bites I left it without making a fuss. I usually never complain In a restaurant but the quality of the food was shocking. When a member of staff came to collect my plate, I told them It wasn't nice to which they replied "ok". At the time of paying the bill I disputed the dish and it got awkward as they told me I had to pay for it, so i just did. Never coming here again, the whole experience was bad...
