OUR INDIAN RESTAURANT OF CHOICE IN SURBITON

If it's time for an Indian, it's time to visit Joy. My partner and I have been visiting Joy for about the last 10 years. Great friendly service and good value food. You are made to feel welcome from the start, service is always professional and courteous. They notice when your glass needs a... read more

There are several Indian restaurants in Surbiton and this is one of the best. We booked and we were pleased we had, as the Friday night saw the Joy restaurant pretty full. Our welcome was warm and we were seated promptly - with our order being taken in good time. We choose a variety of typical Indian dishes from a... More

Having been out on a work do we all decided we we're hungry at 23.45 so I rang round the local Indian restaurants and Joy said they would take orders until midnight! So a group of 8 of us arrived a couple of minutes before and managed to place our order. The food was delicious, served promptly, tasty, lovely fresh... More

Good food and decor. Large inside with good spacing between tables so everyone not crammed on top of each other

We arrived at 2.30 for lunch, place was busy, staff unattentive and not very friendly. Seem to look after regulars but not new customers. Worst of all was that our food was cold and when we complained we were told that we should have come earlier! Won't be returning.

I have tried most of the Indian restaurants in the area over many years and can honestly say this is the best by far. The décor is welcoming and the staff are friendly and attentive whilst remaining discreetly unobtrusive The food is superb and highly recommended.

We arrived at 1pm. They were not accepting card payments (not a problem, there was just an issue with their systems). I had to leave for the airport and insisted that I wanted to be served quickly (we were the only people eating there at the time). They seemed to care more about their own matters than taking our order.... More

Having lived in the area for some years we'd heard good things about Joy but never quite managed to visit. When a leaflet came through our door it reminded us to try it so we booked a table – sadly we were very disappointed and certainly won’t be going back. In summary the food was OK, nothing special but not... More

Having been going here for a few year, I will not be going again. The standards have slipped, the food poor ( two dishes ordered - Madras and Jalfrezi - and both had the same sauce! ). The service, was on the surface friendly however there was an underlying feeling of being processed and wanting you out so table can... More
