Happy Chef Noodle Restaurant is one of my favourite places to eat, and I am guessing that many agree with me, judging by the fact that they have many stores not just around the Chinatown areas but also many suburbs across Sydney. What makes Happy Chef special is the fact that they serve high quality noodles (albeit egg noodle, glass noodle, or anything in between), and with extensive dishes available to choose from, you can hardly go wrong with your selection. One of the most favourite at this place is of course the Chicken Laksa that goes really well with their rice noodle. There is also another dish that my friend suggested that has also been my favourite to order: dried egg noodle with wonton which served with soup on the side. With this dish you can add their special noodle sauce (available at their condiments section) and stir them together to create a very powerful noodle dish!

It's been years since I've been to Happy Chef. Everyone goes on about how great the laksa is, and they have a sign telling you what Luke Mangan's favourite dish is. Whilst the laksa there is pretty decent, it's not the traditional kind of laksa you get in south east asia. I ordered a wonton and seafood noodle soup on recommendation by the friendly young man at the counter, and it did satisfy, though I only ate a quarter of the noodles. It's good for food court fare, but it's not culinary magic.
Happy Chef Noodle Restaurant is a great place to pick up a tasty, quick and cheap meal. The food is cooked fresh and the portion sizes are very generous. You will never eat something from here and still be hungry by the time you've finished. Good place to head on your lunch break from work, because you will not be in line for a long time.
