Very Good Neighborhood Restaurant

My wife and I eat here a couple of times a month. We are always pleased with whatever we order. The service is attentive. They will prepare anything you ask for and do it the way you ask. For example, no salt or a combination that is not on the menu. Portions are generous and the quality of the... read more

I was dying for Chinese food. I grew up in the northeast where delicious chinese food was practically on every corner. Since moving to AZ I've had trouble finding a good place. I found Joyful Chinese restaurant by accident. I was at a salon and saw the restaurant two doors down. I didn't want to cook, so went in and... More

This is the best Chinese food I've had in a long time. My husband will only eat Chinese food here. The food is always fresh and cooked to order. It is where we take company if they are in the mood for Chinese. Excellent food and good service. Take out service as well.

We went looking for a Chinese Restaurant in the area in which we were staying by using the "around me" app. We visited on Friday 4/5/2013 with a party of 6. The place is far from fancy. It is a nice neighborhood Chinese place that serves hot delicious food. We had Sizzling rice soup for the first time and will... More

Went back to Joyful Chinese last night with the family. We had the Imperial Family dinner for 3 at seventeen-fifty each. Lots of shrimp, the seafood soup is especially good. Large appetizer tray with a flaming pot for the skewered meat. Everyone gets to choose an entree also. Great service last night. The golden noodle was very good, as were... More

We arrived on a Tuesday and there were only a few other customers but we had to go in search of someone to seat us. The food was tasty but not as hot as it should have been. The sizzling platter barely sizzled! I may be willing to give them another shot since I have heard that they are normally... More

This is one of the regular lunch place for work day lunches. The specials are good and include Chinese and "Thai" dishes. The Thai is what makes the place special for us.

The food is tasty and you get a lot of it. Good choices here for vegetarians. Prices are low and service is fast. I'm going back to try more dishes as there were so many appealing ones on the menu.
