Stumbled upon this place through the recommendation of a friend. We ordered delivery one night and was pleasantly surprised. My wife and kids loved the food as well. This will definitely be our new goto Chinese restaurant in the future. They do have dine in as well.

JMJ This is a cute little place near many Purdue University apartments. The phone was having trouble so no credit cards the day we visited. This is a busy place but they have a lot of kitchen staff and things moved along quickly. Nothing fancy about the foam plates and plastic utensils. Food was hot and tasty enough. Price was... More

Owned by man and wife. He is always there supervising. Mostly take out and delivery. A few inside tables. Fresh and quick.

I love Chinese food and wanted to try their egg rolls. The restaurant, itself, is small and dingy. It took a long time to even be acknowledged. They were not very friendly! The egg rolls were mediocre. I also had the shrimp with lobster sauce. It was a bit too salty. The shrimp was overcooked.

Didn't like my first experience there then came a second time to try again. This time they gave me the wrong order on my carry out and I couldn't eat it because it had orange (can't eat oranges) so it got tossed and I went hungry. Not going again, the food was not very good when they got it right.

Happy China is a typically silly Asian name but their food and portions are very good. Nothing exotic on the menu, but they deliver on time almost anywhere in Greater Lafayette, I believe, including our office which seems to be in the black hole of restaurant delivery around here. Our staff orders regularly when we have a deadline or can't... More

If you're hungry for Chinese food Happy China is a good spot to visit. I've eaten in and carried out from them many times and haven't been disappointed. There's a wide selection of typical American Chinese style dishes but I've also had no problems getting special requests made when I'm there. If you're eating in you'll find a small seating... More

The vegetable lo mein and hunan beef is very good. We last like the moo shu and potstickers. We usually pick up, do it is fast and hot. Prices are better than other Chinese restaurants in the area.

Believe it (or not) really good Chinese food in good portions. Typical fare. Functional atmosphere but you don't go here for the luxury seating. OK staff but Ritz quality customer service is not what you go here for either.
