Home Delivery: Happy Gardens Chinese Restaurant

Happy Gardens Chinese Restaurant




Since moving to Cleveland, QLD (Brisbane's SouthEast) I have rarely ordered food to be home delivered. Tonight we were due to make Gluten-Free Seafood Pizza but unfortunately the base was past its prime. Thus, we were trying to decide what to have for dinner. 

I didn't feel like having leftover spaghetti bolognaise a second night in a row so decided to google restaurants in Cleveland QLD that offers home delivery.

The only Cleveland QLD-based home delivery place listed on Menu Log was Sitar Express Restaurants - Alexandra Hills. Not one to give up, I decided to do a search for all restaurants in the area and ring around and find out if any had home delivery. The first restaurant I phoned was Happy Gardens Chinese Restaurant 

I talked to someone from this family-run restaurant and YES they deliver - for a $6 fee. Even better, they have a website with their menus for takeaway (deliver) and dine-in.

What I ordered:

Steamed dim sims (4)                                         
                 
$5.20

Calamari with Spicy Salt (entree). I asked the person taking my order what their favourite menu item was and now it is mine as well! Tender calamari in a really nice batter and spicy salt. I had left them in the container so they sweated a little but they were still delicious. 


$8.80

Seafood Supreme (prawns, scallops, squid, fish, etc. and vegetables). Sauce was described as a light oyster sauce. I asked for some ginger and garlic - for their flu fighting properties and because I adore ginger and garlic.


$17.80

Duck with mushrooms (and mixed vegetables). Delicious morsels of duck with mushrooms and mixed vegetables. The duck sauce swimming in the bottom was divine. This will definitely be ordered again.


$16.80

Steamed rice (large)
$3.40

My husband and I really enjoyed eating a little of everything until we were full. There is a lot leftover, about half. Everything was fresh and delivery took just under thirty minutes. Serving sizes were generous and it was nice to explore the menu of a new restaurant.
