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!

We always enjoy eating at Joy's. There is a good atmosphere and the menu is varied and interesting. Whether you like mild curry or something at the top end of the chilli scale, the dishes are always beautifully flavoured with subtle combinations of spices and herbs. The take-away is excellent value. Joys will also cater for parties at home bringing... More

Joy is a good local restaurant with friendly staff and a varied menu that avoids some of the standard dishes commonly found elsewhere. However, we were there on a Monday night, the restaurant was not full but the service was slow. Our meals were good with the heat rating well signposted on the menu, just that it could have arrived... More

it was fantastic, now the food is average shame, although the tastes still sparkle occasionally. What has happened to the service? Is the Restaraunt too big for the kitchen?
