Came with my family for lunch on our 1-day visit to LA. We've never had an AYCE vegetarian buffet in the US before (there is a great one in Singapore though!) so we wanted to try this one. It was really good. I think we ordered about 10 dishes for the 4 of us, and that is in addition to... More

love their house fried chicken; it is mushroom deep fried. Very yummy. Their fried buns are great. The prices are reasonable and they offer complementary soup - hot and sour or egg drop. You can also get brown rice.

My husband and I like trying different foods. We have tried other vegetarian restaurants and this one is the best we have tried by far. First of all, I have to give this restaurant high scores for the creative types of "meat". "Shrimp" made from rice flour -- has the same rubber texture and shape, Our "bird's nest " a... More

Came here for an early light Saturday dinner. Everything was fine. We had Spring rolls and a couple of different soups. The server did warn us they were quite large. Even the small portion can be shared between 2 or 3. Took some of their vegan tirimasu to eat later. Surprisingly good. Would eat here again on our next visit... More

I discovered Happy family and I brought my finicky eater friends and they all love it. Vegetarians equals... More

This restaurant looked so inviting when we drove by that I told my husband to look for parking(he drives while I look for a restaurant). There is 30 free parking in the front but we weren't... More

Firstly, this restaurant has moved to a brand new location in 2011 remaining in the city of Monterey Park. Address: 500 N Atlantic Blvd Suite 171 - in the new mall in the corner of Atlantic/W Hellman just a stone's throw from Freeway 10.
