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

Went to this restaurant with a mate. We both got badly held up, but they seemed to be OK at putting table reservation back half an hour. Sheek kebab starter ; meat nice, but came with miserable limp lettuce and few grated carrot bits. Could have done with pickles tray, which they made a point of taking away after poppadums... More

Flavoursome Indian food and a bit different. Great tandoori Gobi to start. And the mangalorian fish curry for main was spicy but subtle. Nice vegetable dhansak too. The Chablis we ordered was corked but was replaced with something better with no fuss. Joy is an interesting and valuable asset on the Surbiton food scene. I recommend it!
