Respond to Review of CLOSED: Happy Family Vegetarian - Costa Mesa
Review: We live in an area with many restaurants, so it's not typical for me to be excited by one, but I LOVE Happy Family. It's not going to bring you in based on looks, that's for sure. It's a restaurant that was once (still?) connected to an older hotel and we found it clean, but not especially attractive inside. BUT the food was great! Someone else mentioned the wonton soup in their review and I have gotta say it is exceptional; go here just for that. We also love the spring rolls. The orange chicken is also pretty good, with real orange peel in the sauce. They have vegan desserts as well that are exceptional. They don't claim to be vegan - just vegetarian, but when we explained what we were looking for, the server lead us through the menu and was very gracious about accommodating our needs.
