Its very hard for me to rate this place 3/5 stars when on occasion it is 4-5/5 and on a bad day 2/5. My take on this place is their service/food quality depends on either their amount of customers for the day or whether the food is delivery or dine-in. Reason being is I stay on one of the hotels when i visit monterey frequently which is conveniently down the street from Happy Dragon. I have been to this restaurant over 10 times. about 2/10 of the experiences were questionable but overall the food is good and service is nothing spectacular or out of the norm for a middle class chinese resaurant. but for the other 2 times, both were delivery. When i placed the order i specified and compensated financially for the extra meat on my mongolian beef, she assured me it would be very hearty and full of meat. when the delivery man appeared at my door over an hour and a half later he takes the money and darts off without waiting to see if i was satisfied with my order. 1st sign something was wrong. when i opened my box there was what looked like a normal portion of meat (nothing extra like i ordered) and the meat was smelly and old as if it had been made that morning. i couldnt even eat it and my potstickers were so cold i thought they had been refridgerated. the delivery time previous to that hadnt been bad enough to cease eating there however the food was a little old tasting and the delivery man was again, rude. so basically i feel if you dine in or get carry out your experience will be good but stay away from delivery because they get sloppy on the job. That is if you must eat there. convenience and the love for chinese food was my reason.

I do not quite understand the positive reviews. My wife and I went to Monterey several months ago and we happened to stop by this Chinese restaurant named Happy Garden (easy name to remember since they have a statue of a dragon out front). We ordered fried rice and some seafood dish. Both dishes smelled. The meat in the fried rice looked like a leftover from another meal and I could say the same about the rice. The seafood smelled very bad. This is got to be the worst Chinese food I have ever tasted in my life. A definite tourist trap. Please do not waste your money and save your stomach. EATERS BEWARE!!!

I do not quite understand the positive reviews. These could be bogus reviews coming from the owners and the workers of the restaurant themselves. My story is that my wife and I went to Monterey several months ago and we happened to stop by this restaurant called Happy Dragon. We ordered fried rice and some seafood dish. Both dishes smelled. The meat in the fried rice looked like a leftover and I could say the same about the rice. The seafood smelled pretty bad. This is the worst Chinese food I have ever tasted in my life. This is a tourist trap. Please do not waste your money and try to save your stomach. EATERS BEWARE!!!

If you're looking for the best chinese food ever, you have to go to Happy Dragon. My husband and I go there about once every two weeks. They have a combo dinner for two which includes sizzling rice soup, fried prawns and eggrolls, mongolian beef, and sweet and sour chicken. This meal is to die for. The sizzling rice and mongolian beef are truly the best I've ever had. The soup is filled with shrimp, pork, chicken and vegetables. It's a meal in itself! And the mongolian beef leaves you craving more. It's really super! Plus the service is on the spot. They can get really busy on Friday and Saturday, so you may want to try a week night.

For the last 10 years, Happy Dragon has been my favorite Chinese food restaurant on the peninsula. They have always been consistently delicious. Their quality is excellent, and their service is wonderful. Plus, they deliver! So, when you're working hard in Monterey, Seaside, or the surrounding areas, give Happy Dragon a call, and treat yourself to a fabulous, affordable meal! May I recommend the broccoli beef with chow mein lunch special. They'll do it "extra spicy" if you ask for it! Tell them Jennifer sent you.

Pros: Great food, easy parking, fast service

Cons: They don't deliver to my house on Fort Ord. :(
