Food was tasty but not very hot. Service was excellent. Bit costly for what it is. That's Central London prices.

Our servers were very lovely and helped us when we needed it; the only issue was we waited a while for our last meal and servings were much smaller than we expected but it was still lovely.

Over priced for not a lot of food. TGI Friday’s much better and they don’t charge you more for a cocktail without any alcohol in it,7.99 for mojito and 8.49 for strawberry mock tail!!!!! Disgusting

Was unhappy with the service we received. After 5 minutes of receiving our starters, the mains were brought to our table. They advised us they didn't want the food to get cold, however in most restaurants you have a break in-between meals. The whole experience felt very rushed. When we received the bill the waitress didn't leave us with the receipt, instead she stood there waiting for us to pay and not giving us a chance to view the bill only to realise there was a 12% service charge. We don't usually mind paying the service charge but after the experience we had we felt it should have not been given. We was only in the restaurant for 1 hour!

Be careful as the restaurant sneakily adds 12.5% " opt service charge" onto the entire bill. I have no issue with leaving a tip for good service but I will decide the amount.

Would have rather been sat in centre of restaurant to get a feel for surrounding rather than squeezed in corner with everyone else. No follow up…Not asked if meal was ok or needed more drinks throughout the meal.

Food was amazing!

Ok for lunch not a place I would eat in evening or go to again for a business lunch.
Sushi menu , very limited , very unimaginative.
Food arrived with very little in terms of presentation or nice touches
Perhaps it was just a bad choice but it was quick and convenient.
I'm sure good for groups as we left it was getting busy

Quite a good place. Pleasant food, cheap prices. But ..! Production line .. waiters working along company policy without their own thoughts. Some little things are too cheap… for example .. napkin, just ridiculous. Waiters behave like underpaid robots, and most of them are incompetent. Of course, it's not their fault.

To be honest, I did not expect for it to be so delicious and such a nice place. Happy provides such a great atmosphere with attentive staff that cater to your needs. The food was so flavourful and arrived at good times. I really do recommend this place and I hope to go back soon.

Really enjoyed our time at the restaurant, the food and the drinks were great!!
Only let down was the burger I ordered arrived nearly cold, the waitress didn’t seem interested in resolving this and by the time my food then arrived other parties had eaten.
I would come again but hoping service may be slightly better!
Thank you

The food was not tasty. They service was terrible as we finished our starter, the brought us our main without clearing the table. We were waiting for a while to be served. When we said that we will not be paying service charge, the waiter tried to embarrass us by speaking into his walky talky loud saying ‘Take number 25 service charge off’ though the card machine had taken it off already.

Happy made us sad!

Happy looks amazing on camera but the experience and taste was so disappointing, we paid our bill and then went to McDonald’s next door.

When we came in, the restaurant was empty further in but the waitress lead us to a dim corner table by the entrance. I asked to be seated in a better place and she then took us to a nicer part of the restaurant.

We ordered food right away and kept one menu as we planned to order more/dessert. The mains that we had were the size of a meal you get from Tesco ready to go section and the prices are too high for the portion and bland taste.

We ordered dessert 😞 and my cheese cake tasted like the cheesecake from Aldi. The portion was tiny. When the bill came we were so disheartened that our belly’s were still rumbling. My friends share amounted to £30 and she couldn’t believe she in effect just had a sandwich and cake.

If you go here, it’s just for the pretty pictures. Not worth the money and I won’t be going again.

Lovely restaurant, great menu and very good service. One minor criticism is that one of the dishes we ordered was extremely salty but this was deducted from our bill without question which wsa much appreciated.
