Good food, good atmosphere, good service

This is one of our family favourites in the area. Believe it or not, our kids ask to go here if we offer dinner out. Not McDonalds, Pizza Express or Nandos but Joy!

This was a first visit to a restuarant I hear is good for fish curry etc. Very well appointed dining room and very attentive staff with the owner very clearly keeping a close eye on matters. Very evidently has a loyal following as although we were early around 6.30 it soon started filling up. We selected two starters -a crab... More

I'm a big fan of Indian food. Went there last night with my gf, very nice place, nicer than the typical Indian restaurant. Food was disappointing though. My chicken saag was just ok, nothing special. The chicken had a bad taste and was hard. I tried my gf curry and I really didn't like it. Her mushroom rice was nothing... More

Joy is a great place to have an Indian whatever night of the week. The starters, curries are all good and we love visiting it when we are around the surbiton area. Been there a lot of times and I would recommend it.

Service cannot be faulted, the staff were friendly and efficient. Food, however, was pretty average and could've been presented so much better. Definitely in need of an update regarding the menu.

We've now visited Joy a few times and had takeaways delivered and the food is always to die for. It is SO delicious and some of the best we've ever had! The service is fantastic and we've always been offered digestifs on the house at the end of our meals which is such a lovely touch. Really couldn't recommend Joy... More

have often had take aways from Joy and they are good, not the cheapest but good quality. Have visited the restaurant twice once for sunday buffet and once recently for dinner on Saturday night with friends. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated in modern style, its a long thin room with more room out the back than you would think.... More

I went there a couple of months ago. Beautiful location, but not that impressed with the food. It was ok, nothing really wrong with it, but not exceptional like other restaurant in the area.

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
