Great Food, Excellent Service

We ordered the Lemon Chicken, a Lo Mein dish and a mixed rice dish. The restaurant was very clean and had a comfortable atmosphere, able to accommodate fairly big groups actually (5-6 ppl/table). Food was served within minutes - big portions considering the low prices. We visited the restaurant in the evening when it was less busy; the lady serving was nice, asking a few times if we had everything we needed. Low prices, good food... definitely worth another visit.

First time was last time

When you find several hairs, a staple, and a hard substance that looks like a piece of broken tooth in your fried rice, it time to make a few phone calls. There is nothing "Joyous" about this restaurant.

I ordered in, and when i was talking to the lady, i could hardly hear her, they need to speak up, and not be so rude. when i kept saying to speak up she would say i cant because they're are customers...... well than go to a different room! I wasen't even sure what i was ordering or not. and when the food arrived, it was cold, and soggy. i do not reccomend this resturant at all. they need to shape up, or else none of my family, or friends will ever eat there again!

Order from Joy inn regularly for delivery. They always come through on time. Once they even had no driver and had the chef bring it after they closed. The food is excellent. I've been in there as well...very friendly staff and nice atmosphere. The dry garlic spare ribs are to DIE for and if you order wings make sure u state LIGHTLY breaded because they're the best that way. Order some honey garlic sauce on the side and you're good to go. I give them a 10 all the way.
