Pretty good

We liked our meals here. It wasn't excellent but it was good and it was reasonably priced. The servers here are so friendly and that made it a good experience. The portions were large so we had leftovers to take home. I did not like the corn soup or the house chicken but the servers are so nice... read more

Disappointment hardly expresses it. Our dog was having surgery and Joyful was in the same center. I told my wife, " how bad can it be " That turned out to be more than a rhetorical question. Everything was either strange tasting or no taste. GO hungry before you go to Joyful.

Take-out, so cannot comment on dining in. Phoned ahead - ready quickly, with easy access and parking. Food was good for the price - not a "foodie" experience but fit the bill for those in the family looking for take out Chinese.

Maybe I ate there too early in the evening, everyone was over 75 and hard of hearing. And, I can only assume, not too picky about their food. My meal was described as lightly battered and fried but I found it to be heavily battered with very little meat. The dish didn't come with vegetables and they didn't serve side... More

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 ingredients,... 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
