Not the best dim sum in the GTA/Toronto by any stretch but certainly for Mississauga considering how few options there are around the area. Happy Jade is a bit of a dingy Chinese place, but definitely resembles a bunch of the Cantonese restaurants you'll find out East. Dim sum is offered throughout breakfast and lunch, and you'll be able to get some Chinese bbq in the lunch hours as well.

We ordered up some Roast Pork (crispy skin pork), and dim sum for lunch with some coworkers. We had many of the staples including shrimp dumplings (hargow), chicken feet, shui mai, curry squid, sticky rice in lotus leaf, shrimp rice crepe roll, and beef tripe. The shrimp dumplings are standard and they had them done fairly well. The beef tripe were not very tender, overly chewy, and chunky as opposed to thinner and more tender.

The shu mai was actually done the best, as it was juicy and hot throughout. Chicken feet were good too. The Roast pork was subpar. Skin was crisp, but tasted as though it had been sitting out for a while even though it was only noon.

I would come back if the dim sum craving occurs during the work week. Otherwise, I'd opt to go elsewhere. I would probably compare it to dim sum you find downtown, but nothing like the extravagance you get in Markham/Richmond Hill. Worth coming to if you have limited options. They have early bird specials before 11am.
