I always love coming to Five Happiness! Having grown up in Asia, I appreciate real, authentic, family-run restaurants. The food was very good and the service was also good! A little updating with some style and bright colors would make this restaurant shine. Some good music and liveliness as well as new decor would definitely make this restaurant stand out.... More

I used to go to this restaurant monthly since the late nineties but is the last two years the quality is going down and the prices up. There are better Asian food at the Westbank or Uptown.

Food is pretty good! I have tried the beef with broccoli and chicken with vegetables. The egg rolls were a little on the greasy side, and upset my stomach. Overall good is pretty good! Authentic

Who was cold food was cold and tasteless. Told the waiter and he did nothing about it. Even the crowd seem lighter than usual very unusual for fivehappiness

After recently having a couple of mediocre meals at the restaurant and two terrible meals delivered I think I am finished with this place. Greasy and bland entrees, flaccid dumplings swimming in oil, wilted wontons, etc. etc.. Wish we had more Chinese dining options here in Nola. Seems to be a little better if you dine in than order out... More

Each meal comes with soup -I got wonton soup. It had s good flavor. My main dish was chicken, mushroom & pea pod with fried rice. It was... More

Some people call this THE BEST Chinese food in New Orleans and boy are they wrong. All the food came out lukewarm and greasy. The San Shin Soup for 2 was lacking in flavor, the egg rolls were 99% cabbage, the ribs were tough, and the crab rangoon was one big lump of cream cheese. Since the appetizers were so... More

Was disappointed that service was lackluster and the food wasn't exceptional either. The server had difficulty explaining the daily specials when asked and said that it's the same everyday. The server dropped the food and never followed up with us and had to hunt him down to pay the bill. My husband enjoyed the sweet & sour, my garlic shrimp... More

Five Happiness serves excellent Chinese food at attractive prices in a pleasant atmosphere. Lunches are served at reduced prices until about 3:30 pm daily. Entrée dishes are large enough for two and are explained on the menu. Hot and spicy dishes can be tempered to taste. Quality is consistent with the two owners watching operations at all times. Service is... More

My husband & I along with my sister & brother-in- law visited there about a week ago. My husband stuck to his usual twice cooked pork, egg rolls, & hot & sour soup. The three others had a spicy shrimp dish with vegetables wit egg roll, soup. All was delicious! Every meal I have had there has been delicious!
