Now this Chinese restaurant is open for lunch as well as dinner, and we know that they open on a Monday to Friday for lunch, but unfortunately we have not had clarification as to the other times or days that they are open.
Also, we would like to point out that although this is a busy and popular place, reservations are not taken, and the menu is only available in French and Mandarin, yet if you can get around these issues, the Happy Nouilles is worth a visit.
