Food was okay, burrata starter was horrendous! After pointing it out to our waitress she did not even make it a big deal and just gave us the bill in full with an additional service charge.

Had a great time at Happy, I went out with a couple friends as a birthday meal. The food was really good, I was spoilt for choice. The drinks are huge too! Worth the money and visit

The service was as always friendly and welcoming, however I was disappointed with the meal this time. I had the salmon hollandaise, which turns out to be quite a small portion considering the price. It was also not particularly hot. I will go back but try a different dish next time.

Rude, unprofessional, and untrained staff. The communication was either poor or if you didnt speak or understand the eastern european language ALL the staff spoke then you were made to feel insignificant. The place is filthy and does not receive regular cleaning. I just wouldnt go near the place ever again

Great choice of food. Our party of 5 chose 5 different meals and they were lovely. Button on table to call waitress is the way forward. Very good service. Only negatives are being asked to review the service as you pay and the service charge added automatically to your bill. This can be removed if requested but could lead to awkward moments

The staff were not very friendly as we felt that we were being ignored. The food was awaful and I had visited the place before.The portions were so ting that I had to speak to the manager who in all fairness took the spoonful of mashed potato off of the bill.The cocktails were watered-down and the calamari was not cooked properly. I will not be going back there any time soon.

It was quite busy being a Friday but we had a good time. Sushi was brilliant but cocktails could have been better.

Food did not live up to the pictures on website and in menu and portions very small. Very expensive for what you get. My daughters burger was missed of the order so had to wait and nothing taken off the bill for their mistake. Very disappointed

A pleasant, comfortable and well ventilated room. Service friendly and efficient. Food okay but not brilliant. Fries were pale and undercooked and side salad very small, limp and overdressed. My beef rib luke warm and uninspiring. Fellow diners enjoyed their pork ribs, burger and steak. Desserts fine, but didn't seem home made. Good selection of drinks/cocktails. An example of form over substance and at over £200 for four people, not good value for money.

Food was well presented service was great
Do book it's very busy
Don't like having service charge added though.
The foods not cheap so the restaurant owners should pay the wages

I reserved a table for 6:15 on Saturday for me and my friends and when we went there, despite the massive queue everything was managed in a timely, professional way and the food was nice as well as the drinks & a special shout out to Aleksander, who was friendly and was very attentive to our table!

Were able to amend our booking to an hour later even on a busy Saturday, however when we arrived we still had to queue 15-20 mins for a table. The place was packed and the atmosphere was really nice and electric! Service was speedy and extremely attentive. Food arrived very quickly and everything apart from the fries was piping hot. It was all very tasty.

This is my second time coming to Happy and I can honestly say I can't wait to go back. The food is amazing and the service is at worse polite! The sushi is amazing, the calamari is amazing and the Philley Cheese Steak was something else!

Honestly don't even hesitate going here.

The ambience of the restaurant has that chill feeling and full of light. You can see the outside view whichever side of the restaurant you are seated. The staff are courteous and polite. The chocolate cake is to die for. Best dessert we have tasted for the longest of time. The selection of food is carried. I highly recommend to anyone.
