We visit this neighborhood restaurant frequently. The price is right, and the food is very good. I love the pot stickers and the deluxe lo mein. The staff is very friendly.

Food is very good, much better and more authentic Chinese food than Rendezvous. Service is hit or miss depending on how busy the restaurant is. Ambiance not so good. Food quality has improved greatly ownership last year. Very authenic Asian food which works for some people.

We used to eat here every week but had stopped because the food and service were lacking. Hadn't come here in at least 4 years. We were pleasantly surprised to find all new staff and a completely re-imagined and refreshed menu. The modestly higher prices were well worth it. My husband & I split a lunch special- the ginger shrimp..... More

We went there to have dinner last week. The place was busy. We sat down for quite a while with no service. The tea was served after we ordered the dishes. We ordered one appetizer and four main dishes. The appetizer came after three main dishes. Even after we finished these dishes, the last main dish (stir fried bean tips)... More

Our original idea of hitting the peruvian restaurant on New Years Day in Del Mar was thwarted when it was closed, so we saw the Double Happiness and I was a bit worried. I mean Del Mar really isn't a Chinese hotbed, right? I was pleasantly surprised. A really unique Shanghai experience. Really flavorful and really delicious. Note: It is... More

We visited on Christmas Day, and they are packed, since most restaurants are closed on Xmas Day. We had to wait for an hour to get a table, but it is worth the wait! The authentic Shanghai dishes are great. I I just wished the place weren't that crowded.

This is the classic "Christmas Story" Chinese food spot. The food is good, service is quick and prices very reasonable for del mar.

As a local, I had already given up on this place a while back...BUT I REALLY LIKE CHINESE FOOD. So I tried it once again - as take out - and I'll definitely be coming back. The new ownership has brought not just a little improvement in the food, but a HUGE improvement in the food. I'll have to see... More

Double happiness is under new ownership, and things are hopping. The food is very good, the service excellent, and the beer is ice cold. The price is reasonable, and we always take home food for lunch the next day.
