This petite, charming eatery located in the heart of Jackson Heights’ historic area offers superb quality Japanese sushi as well as an array of other chef-prepared meals. With a laser focus on only quality ingredients and cleanliness, husband and wife owners Jeffrey and Kendell Saunders, have brought creative, healthy, and delicious Japanese cuisine to Jackson Heights. Truly authentic in its cooking style, Happy Kitchen doesn’t mix Chinese/Korean style cooking.
Don’t let the small size sushi bar fool you – the selection is tremendous. The roe-laden dragon rolls are of special note here. Rarely seen in comparable restaurants, Happy Kitchen uses only sushi-grade salmon in all its cooked dishes. Among the menu favorites, we recommend the Avocado Chicken Salad, Japanese Curry Bowl, and Yakitori (skewered grilled beef, green pepper, onions, and squash).
Enjoying 11 years on 37th Avenue (bet. 80th and 81st Sts.) there’s even a ‘Jackson Heights roll’: Tuna, avocado, lettuce, crab, sauce, and roe. Customer menu recommendations are always welcome. You’ll now find Crunch rolls on the menu resulting from the number of requests.
Those seeking some of the finest and freshest sushi, look no further. The Negihamachi roll, made with yellowtail tuna and scallion, or the Alaska roll with cooked salmon, cucumber, avocado and Tekka Maki wrapped in seaweed, will not disappoint the most discerning aficionado.
Happy Kitchen’s 100% chef-prepared meals are happily delivered to home or office, meeting, party, or special occasion. Open 6 days (closed Mondays), Happy Kitchen has received rave reviews from NY Daily News, Time Out, Newsday, and The New York Times. Offering daily lunch specials, Happy Kitchen takes great pride and care in their orders eaten in, as well as those going out. Outgoing orders are prepped 3 – 5 minutes before heading to its destination. True restaurant quality food delivered fresh to your door.
