Enjoyable

You always have an enjoyable evening here. The menu delivers consistently and there are always new and interesting dishes to try - a bit different from the average curry house or the average curry house menu. I particularly like the tandoori gobi to start. Then I had the mustard chicken curry as a... read more

We were taken out for a curry at the Joy Indian Cuisine. It is very nice to have someone that knows the restaurant and the best dishes. We enjoy Indian food but are a little sceptical about ordering. The meal was delicious, well prepared and served as ordered. Staff are very friendly and will chat about ingredients and preparation of... More

Joy is a good quality Indian restaurant. Good range of dishes and decent portion sizes. It's a large restaurant and tables are normally available outside of the rush period. Interior is starting to look a little tired now.

We ordered a takeaway from here and it was the most joyless thing you could ever have clapped eyes on. The poppadoms were stale, onion bhaji was limp and flat (had it been microwaved?) and the meat samosas although small, were quite nice. The mint sauce was too sugary and runny. Mango chutney was ok, but probably out of a... More

A tuesday night takeaway started well with excellent popadoms, dal tadka, pilau rice and sag aloo, but went downhill fast with three of the worst meat curries we've ever had. The lamb rogan josh was tough lumps of lamb floating in a sea of watery tinned tomatoes with no evidence of onion or spices. Perhaps it had once been a... More

Ordered takeaway tonight for dinner from this place - Chicken Bhuna, Garlic Chili chicken along with some Roti and Naan Bread. Chicken was uncooked and curry had no taste whatsoever - It appeared as if it was hastily cooked as an afterthought. The chicken pieces were hard and tasted horrible. To make things worse, Roti/Naan was uncooked (the first time... More
