Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It’s an old establishment and it seems to be getting more popular. I don’t know why people will queue for average food. Fear of stepping out of the familiar, I guess. Especially when one sees a queue, “it must be good” will naturally come up in people’s head, not necessarily because the food is good. With the influx of new people from HK, there’s more new restaurants springing up in Chinatown, I can name a few that are very good and one in particular, Only Yu, is superb in its authenticity. My mum wouldn’t go anywhere else! Though, Happy Seasons does do a better roasties than other restaurants. I personally will get the roasted meat but won’t wait in a queue (especially when it rains! Are you kidding!) when I know there are other restaurants sell similar and familiar food (the usual crispy duck and pancakes, spring rolls🙄) and are on the par with Happy Seasons, if not better.

This is not the first time here at Happy Season, but this time it was disappointing. The crispy duck was great. The mains were disappointing. The Chicken curry was average, Beef with spring onions & ginger was bland. The egg fried rice was basic & the noodles, again bland. Next time, I think it’s time to change venue.

Thankfully, we got to the restaurant before the queues started. Service was prompt, and the food came quickly. The dishes that we ordered (Chicken Satay, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Chicken and Cashew Nuts, Fish ball soup and Dim Sum) were all good and very filling. Overall an excellent experience.

Great food however the attitude of certain staff is unacceptable and poor. I’ve been visiting this place for over 15 years and don’t expect to be ‘forced’ to pay, rather than asking for the bill. Disappointing and certain staff should learn to behave more politely.

We read the reviews about this Restaurant and seemed to be top choice in China town, we were expecting something special. We waited about 20 minutes outside thinking it must be good. We were really disappointed in what we got, the food seemed just frozen, reheated food. The chicken was the worst and the ribs were terrible. This is just basic standard food, nothing special. We ordered a starter between us of spring rolls, seaweeds, ribs and prawn toast. The mains were Prawn in sweet & sour sauce, egg fried rice, Chicken in lemon sauce and some noodles. We paid £68 for this and 2 drinks, the portions are large but the quality is poor. Very overpriced for basic food. We will not be returning I don’t mind paying for decent food but this was not.

Surprised that went we arrived at 2.30 we had to queue briefly outside, but it was worth it. This small restaurant was bursting at the seams but service was brisk and efficient and the food came out very quickly. All the starters were clearly home made and not frozen. Chicken wings were huge, as were all the portions. We had the three roasts and two noodle dishes, all were lovely, portions were enormous. The only tiny negative was my squid in the mixed seafood which was very chewy. We’ll definitely be going back

If you do decide to eat here, you may have to wait (but worth it). Goes to show its a great restaurant if there's always a queue. Came with family and friends. Got the Char Siu rice, vegetables and you get good portions! Didn't wait too long for food despite it being very busy. The actual restaurant is quite small and cramped but not a major issue for us. Located in chinatown so easy to get to as well

Return visit after not being in town for ages. Queued to get in, we hit it at 7pm Saturday. Queue moved fairly quickly so glad we waited. Just the best food in china town. Hard to choose from the menu because you just want everything! Ingredients you can tell are fresh, cooked to perfection. Staff a super efficient and friendly. You might think the restaurant looks basic, maybe it is but you’re not there to eat the furniture! We first visited a few years ago, encouraged by the queue outside, quite obviously they have invested in improving the set up as their reputation for good eating has grown. You must try it, you won’t be disappointed!

I'd normally be off to Glamorous to fulfil this craving, but had heard it's not great at the moment. Looked at Happy Seasons reviews as I'd been told the duck was fabulous, but reviews were mixed. Arrrgh. In the end we chanced it - and glad we did. There were two couples in front of us in the queue, and we got a table within ten minutes. We had chosen what we were going to eat while we were in the queue, so ordered pretty much straightaway. The main courses arrived before the dim sum - which our waitress told us would happen and didn't bother us. First dish to arrive was rice sticks with beef. Omg, the flavour was fabulous and the beef beautifully tender. Winner. We had three roast meats and a portion of egg fried rice (you can get meat on rice but it's cheaper and so we surmised there would be less meat). The duck was meltingly tender and full of flavour, the belly pork really tasty with very crispy skin. The char Sui was pleasant but paled in comparison to the other two, in my opinion. As for the dim sum, we had the won tons, which were enormous, very crisp with a prawn filling, and the classic har gau, which were good. Service was friendly and efficient. We left feeling very Happily Seasoned.

Ordered the House special chow mein Supposed to be various meats and seafood Tbf there was various seafood - a couple of prawns some rubbery squid The meat was just some really ropey pork and fat I would not give my dog. How this place has such good reviews I don’t know Oh word of warming - crispy noodles are dry nasty noodles that taste like they’ve been cooked then dried out under a grill Never again

Went on a trip to Manchester from Scotland and me and family hered such great reviews about this restaurant so went to try. But staff were very rude and felt rushed as staff were going on breack for 20 minutes and felt very rushed and uncontrollable. And was given a table with the toilet view up the back and lady wasn't very nice when asked to be moved so never enjoy the view from my table. Wouldn't recommend for a visit . Food was only at basic standard quality nothing special. And the restaurant in desperate need of refurbishment to give it a more confirtible feel very rundown. ⭐️ start quality

I joined a friend for dinner. We were looking for a busy place (a good sign often) and people who looked as if they were enjoying the food. We found both. I started with wun ton with prawn filling. Good size and tasty. For the main course, I had mixed chow mein with crispy noodles. I loved the crunchiness of the noodles. The place isn't fancy, but despite the paper table clothes, there was a great vibe in the place. You can use Western cutlery, but I opted to use the chopsticks. The service was quick and responsive.
