Great place with reasonably priced food and service was good - a little loud but it was 10.45pm on a Saturday night! Lovely margaritas.

Rushed!
Starters and main came all at the same time and they got the order wrong! Wanted us in and out to make more money clearly! Food was extremely basic and staff are abrupt and rude!

Table next to us were a bigger party size and got their starter and main separate! Clearly wanted them to stay so they could spend more money!

Won’t be going back

Staff very friendly. Huge range of choice from menu, food not amazing, pre cooked fast food taste. Table of 6, all food on table 10 minutes after order.
Good for younger people on a Saturday night. Great value for money. Plenty of noise but still able to have a conversation at table.

We had to return our food as it was cold and when the next lot arrived still 3 of the 4 were just luke warm but as we had somewhere else to go we had no choice but to eat it. The manager didn't really seem to bothered we had to ask for a discount for the inconvenience. Despite not being hot the food did taste good. The tables however were too crammed together and not enough space for the waiter's to get through. Overall not a great experience and also a little overpriced for what you get

Easy to book and large, fun and friendly ambience.
A couple of dishes were not available, which the waiter did not mention. Food was fresh and nicely presented. Cold chips were sent back without a fuss. Reasonably priced for the west end,

We really enjoyed out time at Happy's.

It was out first time visiting Happy's and we chose it due to the proximity to the theater. There was a nice range of food (deserts are just ok) and the service was really great.

We did notice that they are using plastic straws in their drinks, which we were a bit surprised at. Perhaps they need to rethink this given most restaurants, cafes and other venues have moved to paper straws or no straws.

Booked a table for 6 and what we got was a table for 4 people. The 6 of us couldn't fit on the table if we decided to all get something to eat. The table was next to the entrance during winter, so every time the door was opened a cold air would breeze through us. When we asked the staff if they could move us to a different table, they said "No". While the table behind us which was further from the door was empty for more than 2 hours and stayed empty till we left. It wasn't busy at all but yet they couldn't move us. Aswell there were bigger empty tables that never got occupied and still they didn't move us. Service was meh. Our waiter didn't give a crap about us, didn't show any type of enjoyment in what he does. His attitue was like "Uhh when does my shift finish...". Ordered a Ceaser Salad, the only thing that was alright was the crispy chicken. The lettuce wasn't even cut, dressing was cheap tasting, probably gotten from a local Tesco for a pound. I wouldn't recommend this place.

Otherwise good and interesting choices . Service good and cheerful.

I was really pleased with our whole experience at Happy. Due to travel disruptions we were late for our booking and we rang ahead. Staff were very accommodating and service was swift, good excellent and prices good for London. All in all I'd highly recommend.

Great choice of food, just a little different and all pictures in a large varied menu. Food size is much less than the photos so don’t be fooled.
Would return but for a treat, and there aren’t many of them in a year.
Georgi our waiter was lovely and very helpful.

Food was ok but for that price, I expected a much better quality and portion size. The chicken guacamole was far too salty.

Been to Burgas and Varna and all was good with food, great service but very expensive! As a Bulgarian chain perhaps offer some Bulgarian food and beer choices.
