I would not call it the best Chinese food around. It is a decent place to go if you are not picky because it only serves typical Americanized Chinese food. At times, it could be too sweat.

One of very few good chinese in NOLA. Really reliably good food. Classics are excellent from eggplant to moo shoo to Peking duck. As good as the best china towns. Lovely environment, great and prompt service. Enjoy.

Yummy food, great portion size and cold beer. Five Happiness was here before Katrina and returned soon after. It is a New Orleans institution, especially for those of us in the area nearby. It is not a classic dining experience, but it is a great place to go when you don't want to dress and want good Chinese food!!!!

The hot sour soup good. There spicy shrimp and chicken was not spicy and shrimp fried rice had very little taste. I was trying it for an alternative to PF Chang's at the mall. (Not a good alternate)

Not bad but not great either. Got some take out after a day of sight seeing. Wonton soup more complex than simple broth. Got a chicken specialty with red peppers. Was flat not spicy at all main flavor was salty.

Servers are cordial but don’t expect anything more than them taking your order and returning in a split second with your food and coming back once to make sure everything was OK. I have been here a hundred times because the location is central, the food is consistent, and it does have a nice ambiance. I would recommend ordering your... More

Our family favorite Chinese restaurant. Easy to get to from most areas but now they deliver as well. The menu is interesting but also includes all the typical standards. There are usually some good specials on offer as well which are always excellent. Service is good and portions are generous. For a family of 4 we are very well fed... More

The food is very good. The portions are great. The service is fair. I asked our server to tell me about the duck and she replied, "it's just baked duck." -so I got something else. I was with a party of 6 and we all shared our entres and everything was very good. The kids were happy also.
