    We ate for the 1st time at Happy on Friday 2nd December, the meal was enjoyable. However we feel the waitress was not as professional as she should have been. She was reaching over one of our party to collect empty plates when 1 of the party was still eating and didn't ask to collect the empty plate. The plates should have been collected when all the party had finished eating their mains. When it came to our desserts she again was reaching over 2 of the people in the party to pour the chocolate sauce over their desserts, surely the party could have done this themselves.

    I book my reservation for happy London over month ago to celebrate my daughter's 13th birthday we went to the restaurant everything went smoothly up until we place our order. My niece who is 14 order the steak when it arrived it looks nothing like what was in the picture on the menu she told the server that she don't want it. the manager then came over and said there is nothing wrong with it looks just like what's in the picture he started to shout at her my neice Is 14 very tiny she don't look like a teenager she looked like a child I have to turn to him and said to him it looks nothing like what's in the picture he turned and said her oh if you don't take it or if you order something else I will be charging you for the steak I turn him and said no she's not paying because it looks nothing like what she ordered. just a terrible way to behave towards a customer especially to a child He finally went and change. when it was time to cut my daughter's cake as I said it's my daughter's 13th birthday they brought the cake over and sing Happy Birthday was really nice of them. the server came over with the bill and said obviously you have to go because you overstay your time I turned to her and said the cake just came they haven't had the cake oh you have to go you over stay ur time I would never come back

    First time visiting Happy, and was not disappointed. Lovely food, good sized portions. And some lovely cocktails. Even though it was very busy with people queuing outside it wasn't noisey or felt chaotic inside.

    I really enjoyed my time here. I think that you should slightly change the menu so that dishes are more of a meal. E.g prawn popcorn with chips and something else. The food was also slightly greasy

    Food was good, portion sizes small for the prices though, £3.50 for a warm can of coke definitely excessive, to be expected due to its location though I guess. Liked the button call for service when ready to order, really good idea that I've not seen before, and the staff were polite and attentive when needed

    Friendly lovely atmosphere! We dined here as a treat whilst visiting London for the weekend, 3 adults and 1 child. We thought the menu was very good,lots to choose from! The burgers were amazing,my son had Mac n Cheese with beef which was cooked to perfection! The others had calamari which was lovely too! The cocktails are a bit on the small side for the price but the carafes of juice were amazing+refreshing! Lively atmosphere with music + the grinch even made an appearance whilst we were there!! Clean + also spotless toilets too! Our Bill came to £115 and that's 4 mains, 2 sides,2 cokes,carafe of juice,2 cocktails + 2 Shandy's. We would definitely return!

    Nice enough food, very kind and friendly service. Overpriced for the amount of food you get and incredibly noisy dining especially if sat next to open kitchen area. If bookingg would recommend calling and requesting table by the window!
