Respond to Review of Happy Family - Loma Linda
Review: I had first read about this place on happycow, and stopped in while driving through town back in 2012. Was just here again, and here's my Happy Family - Loma Linda review update. The first time here, we were on our way to Joshua Tree to attend Bhakti Fest and had stopped in for a quick lunch. To my surprise, the inside of the restaurant was quite spacious and very nicely decorated with an Asian style sensitivity. Very comfortable booth seating (wooden chairs also). Our waitresses were two very friendly Chinese woman who converse and played with our daughter. We got 2 lunch specials to share: the vege fish in black pepper sauce and the sauteed long green beens. Each lunch special came with a small fried spring roll, a bowl of brown or white rice, and a soup of the day. The food tasted all right, though we didn't like our soup (a gooey corn and tofu soup). The second time here was just a few days ago. Came in for dinner, and it seemed like things stayed pretty much the same: 2 friendly waitresses, same menu, same decor. This time we share the savory green beans and fried tofu cubes (recommended); both were both yummy. The wonton soup and the pineapple fried rice (mild flavor) were okay. However, beware that sweet and sour soup is very gooey and peppery. I couldn't finish mine. Overall, this is a good place to come for veggie Chinese food.
