Decent and clean. Slightly pricier than others.

Good overall faux meat dishes. Would say that the flavor and quality of food is consistent and that service is ok overall. Prices about $1-2 dish higher than similar restaurants with equally appealing options in local area.

Pros: Convenient, Consistent, Large menu
Cons: Can be busy, Felt slightly rushed, Slightly pricey

I had read about this place on happycow, and here's my New Happy Family Restaurant review.

My friend and I came here for lunch and was surprised to find that this restaurant has been established for already 8+ years.

Although it was a weekday, there were many customers, and that was good to see.

The space is decent. Has many tables in addition to a couple private rooms for large parties of up to 12-15. I didn't like the two aquariums with fish on display, but it's a Chinese/Taiwanese thing for good luck (?).

Service was very prompt and quick. Food was okay. We ordered the soy fish in hot sauce lunch special which was okay, the pork/squid/shrimp/broccoli stir fry lunch special which was tasty but greasy. We also got a sweet & sour soup which was too had too much black pepper and vinegar. Free hot tea was served throughout the meal, so that was a plus.

Overall, this is a decent/good place to come when in the Rosemead area. Food can be on the greasy side a bit (like all of the Chinese vegetarian places around) but plentiful. Service is good, price very cheap, and parking is provided.

Pros: friendly service, large menu, some food tasty
Cons: can be greasy

I enjoyed this restaurant from the start i've eaten here every other weekend for a while since becoming a vegetarian. I find this restaurant great and inexpensive which i think people will enjoy, staff is great, treat you well, the food is great also. Although the food may sometimes be too oily or too saucy, always knowing your food will or might be different can be a little annoying, aside from that which to me doesn't bother me this restaurant is great and recommended.

Pros: Price, Food, Staff
Cons: Foods may be prepared a little different

This is usually my default option. I've been to happy family too many times to count, thanks in part to their lunch specials which include starchy goodness with every dish (buns and porridge are always a guilty pleasure). The food has been reliably tasty, although sometimes a bit on the heavy side of sauce. Familiar dishes and mock meats are always good, and I always leave with a content buddha belly. Thumbs up.

Pros: Tasty, Affordable, Fast
Cons: Sometimes a bit too oily/heavy on sauce

i agree with the first person, the food was really good and the service was excellent. I tried the kung pao nuggets, shredded pork and bean curd and the sticky ribs (i think they were called....not too sure on the last one).....they were all very good. i personally loved the kung pao nuggets. The service was way better than excellent and the atmosphere is really chill.

Pros: good food, good service, very affordable
