Best Indian in the area!

We come here whenever we fancy an Indian and we are not disappointed. Wife and I went Friday last - light selection with a mustard chicken curry best for the ample and succulent chicken chunks which went well with my favourite - lemon rice. My wife enjoyed the aubergine and her fluffy nan. The team... read more

Awful experience. We got to the restaurant at 7.45, ordered our meal 45 minutes later at 8.30pm and then didn't get our starters until 9.30pm! They might as well have not bothered as most of the starters were below average for any Indian restaurant. My vegetable samosas looked like they had been bought from the local Tesco! The mains took... More

Normally excellent. Tonight the food was awful and the excuse was 'a different chef on'. Not a great excuse. No refund offered and had to call hungry house to get my money back. I've had better microwave meals. Ask about her chef before ordering!!!!

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 refill and other good elements of... 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.
