    What a hidden Gem and so close to Wynyard. Perfect for a quick trip to the city for a lunch meet-up! Service was outstanding!

    The business was closed & so our confirmed reservation for our family lunch upon arrival in Sydney for our holiday was obsolete.

    We chose to have lunch at Happy at Larry's because of their quick service (we only had an hour for lunch) and their healthy lunch options. They did not disappoint.

    Great little place, friendly and good (if slightly loud) music. Pizzas looked amazing and smaller fantastic- rated highly by my co-diners. Hot Healthy Bowl was ok, a little dry and a little weird with peas corn and carrot combo. Would come back!

    Lovely spot in Jamison Street in Sydney CBD with wonderful food including excellent nourish bowl choices. But on a hot day there is no airconditioning so it was too hot the day we went and the music was too loud.

    Found this place a few weeks ago, and absolutely loved it. The food is incredible, have tried the Pizza, Pasta and their schnitty and its scrumptious. The staff are friendly, had a lovely chat with the manager the first day I went and he remembered me the next time and even asked about my weekend away we spoke about. Genuinely though, amazing food AND value.

    The food at Happy as Larry has always been very good and service is efficient and friendly. The only drawback is the limited space they have - regardless of whether you get a table for 10 or a table for 3, the space is quite limited.

    Would be better if the sound system is turned a bit down, or put a softer music. It's us against the volumes.

    Interesting menu even though simple. Manages crowds well, good presentation of dishes & garnishes, natural beverages like strawberry soda & iced teas a refreshing change, batch brew coffee as well. One of the few places that knows how to do calamari well. Pizza stands make sharing easy & fun

    Our order went missing but the team were very apologetic and rectified the issue quickly so all good. I think they could be more generous with the serves of protein but other than that food and ambience are great for a casual catch up

    Generally the ambiance is great, the service was slow, but most likely due to lunch time and being busy, we still had to wait a while though and meals did not come out together

    I booked Happy as Larry for a work lunch meeting. I arrive, said my booking name and the waitress directed me to the top level table. My work colleague walk, said my booking name and was directed to the lower level. We sat at different tables for almost 25 minutes before we texted each other and found out we had both been sitting at our tables separately the whole time. The waiter took my drink order but I did not receive this until at least half an hour later. AS it was a late booking for lunch (1.30pm) and not busy that the staff did not realise two people were sitting separately and it was the same booking. I was extremely disappointed by the service, not to mention this was a work meeting so our valuable time was cut short.
