Since 1976, when the first Happi House opened in San Jose's Japantown, Happi House's original California Teriyaki cuisine has been truly innovative, fresh and unbeatably delicious!

But what makes Happi House so special?

It's Happi House's "Teriyaki Infusion" cooking method combined with time-honored family recipes. We specially marinate the most wholesome ingredients with top-secret seasonings and our exceptional teriyaki sauce, then use distinctive cooking techniques that infuse our delicious California Teriyaki flavors throughout our Teriyaki Chicken, Pork and Beef. And you'll never find a steam table at Happi House because we prepare every one of our signature Teriyaki, Tempura, Noodle and Rice Bowls fresh-to-order. For more than 30 years now, Happi House has enjoyed being a family favorite by serving great meals at a deliciously affordable price.


1/1/2008 -- This Happi House location opened in the mid-70's. It offers Japanese-style fast food that beats every hamburger joint and taco palace I've ever been to -- for taste and quality and for a similar price. A typical meal consists of meat, rice (white or beef) and chicken salad, all for a little over $6 (higher for fancier combinations.) The staff is friendly and efficient, serving hot, freshly prepared food (cafeteria style or "to go") usually within 5 minutes or so. The common ingredient of their cooking style is what they call Happi Sauce -- a sweet teriyaki sauce that permeates almost all their dishes. If you like IT, you won't be disappointed. Go in and check out their menu!

6/12/2007 -- Happi House is a guilty pleasure of mine. I LOVE the chicken salad. Also, where else can you get beef flavored rice? I either get the #1 beef combo or the saimin, but really I just come here for the onion rings, salad and rice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Very disappointed in the quality of the food. Don't know if all Happi House serves this kind of very greasy, dried-out meat, and low quality food, but doubt I will even try another Happi House. Sticking to Chipolte or Panda Express. For the same price, their food is so much healthier and quality is so much better by far. Also, for the price, portions at Happi House is not worth what one is paying for. Considering the quality and proportions served, they should definitely charge a lower price. Even then, doubt I would go back. Most of us would like to stay healthy and eating greasy and low quality food with loads of additives is not the way to go. Like I said, this Happi House may not be representing other Happi House restaurants, and they certainly do not give other Happi House chains a very good name. Won't be returning even if I had a Free coupon! Apr 15, 2014
