Respond to Review of Happy Family - Loma Linda

Review: I live in Riverside and the only vegetarian restaurant we have is Oasis, which is about 30 minutes from my house. I decided to browse outside of my city and came across this restaurant on HappyCow. It got great reviews so I thought I'd drive out there (also about 30 minutes away). My first impression was that it was in an okay area. I was greeted right when I entered and was sat immediately. My boyfriend and I ordered off the lunch menu, the items ranged from about $6.50 to $7.50. Each meal came with a soup (Hot and Sour or Corn Soup), a spring roll, and either white or brown rice. I ordered the Orange Chicken with Hot and Sour and brown rice. The texture of the chicken was pretty close to meat, the taste was rather good. It's definitely something I'd order again. I LOVE Hot and Sour soup and really enjoy this one in particular. My boyfriend ordered the Broccoli Beef with the same sides. The "beef" tasted similar to a beef jerky we get at a local Health Food Store. The service was so-so, the lady seemed rushed (it wasn't busy) and didn't speak the clearest English, but we got our food quick and it was yummy. She did bring out an extra soup (corn) for us to try, so that was nice. I give this place an A, I will be returning in the near future. Unfortunately, my boyfriend is leaving for Navy training, so I might be sitting alone :(

Since posting this review, this restaurant has become my FAVORITE PLACE EVER. The people here are always SUPER nice to us and I believe it's the owner who always sees me and talks to me when I come in. He's always looking for input on the dishes and letting us know how we can order it different (more spicy, stuff like that). I'm addicted to the Orange Chicken, brown rice, and hot and sour soup. Best meal ever. Before moving out of state a few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I started going regularly and trying out the different dishes. The Mongolian beef is a new favorite, very spicy, but delicious. This place is amazing, I can't wait to eat here when I visit family in December.
