Happy House has been a family run and owned eatery for over 42 years and shows no signs of slowing down. “We are just a small family business, not like a corporation with tons of money when they start. So, we started from zero up,” explained owner Fee Shan Mark.

So, what sets them apart from many other Chinese Restaurants?

At Happy House, there is no buffet and everything is cooked when and how you want it, even down to the homemade eggs rolls and spicy mustard. “When you order, you turn it in, then we prepare. We cook so it always comes out nice and fresh,” Fee said.

The recipes have been passed down from generations.

The top dishes would have to be the cashew chicken and anything sweet and sour. “All kinds of sweet and sour like shrimp, chicken, pork, beef,” Fee emphasized.

A family of six runs the quaint and cozy place. They are especially good when it comes to catering to the family crowd.

Most dishes are around $10 dollars. And remember this, they only accept cash. So leave your credit cards and checks at home.

Fee Shan tells NewsCenter 16 Happy House gets bigger and busier every year. However, it is not due to their advertising, because they do not advertise. It is all word of mouth from their customers.

If the sound of the food sizzling is any indication of the taste, this place is definitely a Unique Eat.

If you and your family would like to check out Happy House, it is located on South 11th street in Niles, Michigan. For more information, call (269) 684-0484.
