Happy Time, while having a hilarious name, had delicious food. We basically cleaned our plates it was so good. I ordered the teriyaki chicken, and my friend had some seafood soup (I'm allergic to seafood so I didn't pay too much attention). It's a bit of a hole in the wall in a strip mall, which can be a good... More

Very cute little restaurant in strip plaza. Service was great and place was very clean. We had the Bulgogi (pork and beef) and one that was spicy. The spicy one was the best but all of them were flavor and as expected for most places I've had Korean food.

We tried Happy Time tonight. Our spicy beef bulgogi was simply outstanding. It came with several excellent sides. All four of us raved about the food. They do gluten and dairy free entrees. Thy also offer a military discount.

The sides are very good. Kimchi, and all others. I had the Bulgogi, the meat was not very good. It was average and overcooked I thought. The service was okay. Everything was cooked on the spot so that is why the wait is long. But I did not mind. The service was okay. Americans want eveything in a hurry but... More

My advice is to go here when there are no more than two other people in the place, otherwise you may end up waiting an hour like we did. On top of that, the server (owner?) brought us the wrong meal and took it away to give to the correct table. We got there at 12:15 noontime and were served... More

OMG...so yummy! I lived in Korea for a year and nostaligc cravings made me come here. I really liked their Bulgogi, Bi-bim-bap, Jap-Chae and Kimbap. Even their side dishes (pickled cucumbers, Korean pancake and Kimchi) were super delicious. Service was fast and attentive. Loved the atmosphere of the small restaurant and especially the view to Pikes peak from my table.

The food here is amazing. The service is so friendly you feel like you are visiting friends or family. We cannot wait to return! Note that the restaurant has no liquor license / doesn't serve beer or wine. Also, while clean and neat, the atmosphere is simple. This isn't a place for a special occasion, fancy meal. Go and enjoy!

Large portions, tasty food, but service was very slow. The menu has a large selection, but be careful of the spicy alternatives, as they really are.

One of the best versions of bulgogi I have had in town. The misc kim chee appetizers/salads are great. Be sure to get some dumplings- they are homemade and awesome!
