There is definitely better Chinese take-out to be had, but Happy Lamp is close by and always ready quickly.

My wife and I ordered take-out from Happy Lamp since it is close by. We ordered the family deal for two. It was enough food for 4 (despite being for 2) for a very good price. Food quality was what you would expect... decent, no complaints, cheap, take-out Chinese food. Take-out service was quick and friendly.

This is a really good neighborhood Chinese restaurant with a pleasant and quiet dining room. I had the Seafood Delight in Bird's Nest today and it was great. The variety is not what is found in other Chinese restaurants, but the food is always excellent. I do remember encountering a semi-rude older woman five or six years ago who may... More

Food is mediocre-nothing special about their Veggie dishes. Overall restaurant is not very clean. Spotted roach crawling on wall. Only positive comment is that the wait staff are very nice.

Whenever we drive to go hang out, this is the place we go for lunch. They all know him there, they offer their lunch menu on weekends - great deals. The food is consistently good. Never very busy.

We go to Happy Lamp fairly often, including birthdays. The food is very good. The service is fast and courteous. The prices are very reasonable especially for lunch.

Stayed at a friends house while mine was remodeled. Saw Happy Lamp and decided to give it a try . Heck, it's close to the New York Deli, one of my favorites, try the corned beef hash for breakfast. Well, it also in a great neighborhood that seems to have held on to that feel. Good folks...good food. And Happy... More

Great for a quick lunch. Lunch specials include soup, egg roll, and rice. Too expensive for dinner unless they decide to remodel. When I pay that kind of money I would like for the atmosphere to reflect what I am spending. I have dropped by to pick up wonton soup to bring home for dinner or take to a sick... More
