Happy Inn is a western Sydney institution. Consistently great value and service and their home delivery service can not be faulted. Check out the Shun Tung Chicken - to die for!

The Happy Inn is our 'go to' restaurant for both family celebrations and when choosing our casual dining destination. Both the food and service is excellent, consistent and has never disappointed us. We have travelled far and wide but the flavours and quality of the food at this restaurant are hard to beat.
