Happy Family 3, 500 N Atlantic Blvd, Monterey Park, CA 91754-1079, Monterey Park
Super good food and excellent service. Can't wait to go back and try more!
This place knows how to treat their customers. Always with a nice demeanor. The food is fairly priced, regularly flavorful and clean.
Retracing my previous review; possibly because of new ownership, the place has gone downhill. Wasn't too thrilled with the dishes we ordered, especially how much of a down grade the fake fish was. Not worth coming back here for my vegetarian fix.
Tried this spot once with my friend and I am addicted since then. I enjoyed the awesome character and flavorful food and drinks. Keep it up.
Consistent and good vegetarian Chinese food. Employees are always friendly.
The traditional Chinese vegetarian dishes are so hard to make. The ones that I normally went to are out of business within a few years. Happy family has an all you can eat menu, but they don't offer it on the 1st and 15th of the Chinese calendar. Better to call them to confirm if they offer the all you can eat menu that day. The dishes that I ordered were just ok. Checked in Yelp get a free desert.
family meals, yeah, so fresh. Got there about one, it wasn't busy. Next time I'll be back with my coworkers. The place has a cool atmosphere.
I know the happy family restaurant may sound iffy but it's truly not. And the fact that it's vegetarian just makes it more interesting! Go knowing you're trying something out of your taste buds daily routine. The flavors are definitely there. Get a nice hot cup of tea and try the mushroom orange chicken! Don't forget the fried rice .🍳
Good food good service👌👍
Clean, well attended and fast take out service
Good food very good service.
(From the point of view of an omnivore)This is a great place for vegetarians to enjoy Chinese cuisine without the guilt of consuming meat. I was impressed with dishes like Orange Chicken, Fried Mushrooms, and a lettuce dish with minced "meat." Most of the food I've tasted though tasted bland. You could imagine eating something like Beef Broccoli or Fish in Garlic Sauce, but what I ended it tasting was tofu and seitan. I would come back again with family or friends who are vegetarians, but I wouldn't make a frequent visit for myself.
This place is amazing! Their vegan options far exceed any of my wildest imaginations. Their artificial meat is amazing and definitely better than any grocery store brand. This place also will make things onion / garlic free which is great and super helpful! If you are a vegetarian or vegan in the Pasadena area this place is a absolute must!
We have been coming here for years even my father in law likes this place compare to other vegetarian places. But they recently changed the ownership or changed their business name, the food portion seems got smaller than what it used to be. But still a very busy place. Expect to wait on rush hours.
Chinese vegetarian food is rooted in Mahayana Buddhist temple cuisine. This means that the food is mostly lacto-ovo vegetarian, with most dishes falling closer to the vegan side of the spectrum. Because alliums like onions and garlic are thought to be inflammatory and excitable, you won’t find these flavor enhancers in Chinese vegetarian cuisine. Cuisine that follows this tradition is called 純素 or “pure vegetarian”.With this preamble, the food at this establishment follows this pure vegetarian tradition. There’s a lot of tasty dishes that use soy-based meat replacements. For those who don’t like processed meat substitutes, the choices are plentiful and delicious too. The pineapple fried rice is really good. So are the tofu dishes and stir-fried fresh veg (try the pea shoots if they have it available).
The best vegan food
I come here every time I’m in this area food is good and prices are affordable. They used to offer a 1000 layer pancake that I love but they don’t have it no more, hope they bring it back.
Amazing vegetarian food and highly recommend to vegetarians and nonvegetarians alike. Favorite restaurant. I feel like no other restaurant can I randomly select something off the menu and be so in love with it. The only food that was ever not amazing were the steamed buns (average). Their flan is more akin to pudding rather than a traditional flan but still delicious.
The service is regularly fast, awesome atmosphere, friendly staff members. I will visit here again when I arrive nearby.
If you are a vegetarian surrounded with meat lovers, then this place is the perfect option. A pure vegan Chinese restaurant that makes pretty much all of its dishes using soy protein but with the look, taste (and sometimes texture) of a meat based dish. There are completely vegetarian options too like with lotus roots etc. Their fried wontons are really tasty! Good service and pretty affordable.
Been coming here for years. Everything on the menu is absolutely heavenly. I've had the pleasure of ordering literally every offering. Lots of standout dishes, several great ones, lots of good ones and a couple of not so bad. Overall, heaven on earth with food for mind, body and spirit is here.
If youve never had vegetarian/vegan chinese food, you MUST try this place! Im a straight up meat eater but this is game changing!!
Food is good, is a little overpriced when compared with the other same vegan restaurant in SGV. Service is so so (it was very busy, and there were only three waitresses).
Excellent food and service. Very friendly and inviting. Like you are visiting family and the food is freaking good.
My vegetarian fiancee was in heaven... Tasty and savory Chinese classics that are all plant based. Food is served family style so bring friends. The tastiest of dishes for me was the ones without the "mock" meat... Pineapple fried rice (subtle sweetness and not overly fried) and the crispy deep fried tofu with basil (amazing dry seasoned tofu with spicy marinated Thai basil). The Minced Squab in Lettuce was a great appetizer too with a blend of flavor and texture.
Great restaurant to eat anything you desired but couldn't because you're a vegetarian. From beef, pork, fish to chicken, they are all well cuisined! They used to have an all you can eat option too!
Very good place! Recommend! Portions are huge! We could probably eat it four instead of two people, huuuuge!
Service was amazing! I love that I can eat everything on the menu!!! Had the sweet and sour pork and the fried rice! It was so much food. Enough for four people! The tea was perfect to warm up before and after the meal! Food came out fast. The place was tidy.
Awesome food, super friendly staff, regularly good atmosphere. They charge convenient prices and the food quality is good. Keep it up.
family meals, yeah, so great. the service was very friendly and attentive. the prices are well within reason for the quality. feels like a place in los angeles i loved.
Amazing good and service, really nice servers and an all around got experience
This place has an amazing number of dishes you can choose from, all of them vegetarian even if they have meat names on them. They're very creative and preparing the dishes and they come up really tasty and flavorful. The ambience of this place is traditional Chinese, but everyone will likely enjoy the food here. The house chicken is addicting!
This place has seriously some of the best food I've ever had. If this is vegetarian, I don't ever need to eat meat again. I highly recommend getting the crispy "chicken" - mushrooms. Delicious.
Outstanding balance of flavors and variety. Absolutely amazing healthy choices. Very nice staff and calm environment. Good for kids too. If you haven't already tried this place, you must, especially if you are not a vegetarian. You will be pleasantly surprised!
A preferred place for tasty Family Meals. there was fast, efficient, and courteous service. feeling here is similar to a cafe in san jose i liked.
Food is always good here. A better alternative to eating meat all the time. A wide variety of Chinese vegetarian options.
Great food, friendly employees, constantly fantastic vibes. They charge fair pricing and the food quality is great. Great work.
Once again had a divine lunch. Jim thinks their Orange "Chicken" is about the best he's had, EVER. The flavor, texture & delicious taste won him over again. I was wowed by the vegetables in Curry sauce. Quite the impressive array of veggies & flavors. I added cashews to make it out of this world. Fun & yummy lunch just before our afternoon Chinese Movie, at the AMC. This time The Farewell. Must See! Love spending the day in Monterey Park. Great food and flick!
Such a great Vegan taste. The waitresses are super nice with good manner, absolutely distinguish themselves from other typical Chinese restaurants.
We had the sweet and sour chicken and that one I like, the other dish the "pork" with broccoli not so much.
Excellent restaurant for Vegetarians! Very friendly waitresses. Very clean restaurant. Nice peaceful music. Welcoming environment. And great food! 👏👏👏
The best vegetarian in the world! Good food for good health... Can't get better.
Absolutely LOVE this place. My family and I come here as often as we can for special occasions. We order a couple of dishes and all share from the large plates. A bit pricey but totally worth it. Best vegetarian place to go! The “chicken” drumsticks are my husband’s favorite everything I’ve ordered becomes my new favorite! You won’t be disappointed
Great vegan place. Not expensive at all
Definitely tasty vegetarian food. Come for the lunch special for free rice and tea
Tasty vegetarian at very reasonable prices. Lunch is a better bargain. A lot of dishes at around $8.00, rice and soup comes with the meal.
Been going here since i was a little girl. love the food!
I've been a vegan for well over 3 years. This eatery has some of the best options at the best prices. Staff was fantastic and very accommodating to my needs.
Delicious vegan asian food. One of my favorites in the city. Have brought some of my carnivore friends and they are so surprised!Recommend: fried mushrooms, kidney basil mushroom and orange “chicken” sesameParking lot is just unbelievable during popular times (evenings, weekends) I also recommend checking out Vege Paradise. Both are so great! (Has more parking here)
All you can eat is best!
