a communal atmosphere with terrific food - the waiter was very helpful - described the many menu selections and suggested things he thought would please us after learning what we liked and disliked - it was noisy and fun and quite inexpensive - a wide variety of drinks and on my several visits I've tried many and liked them all

Visit every year for large family meal. Love the hustle and bustle. Great menu, good portion size, good value. Yet I have a feeling that things are slipping. Service a little off, dishes not as zesty. Dont fail us now guys.

Having visited this place each summer over the last five years, I am sad to say that they are falling off their game. Large portions, lots of bubble tea, but the service has slowed down and the food, while still tasty, has lost a little of its zest. Come on guys, don't lose it now.

My visit to Joy Yee was definitely a unique dining experience. The tables are very close together and the place is quite noisy. Service was friendly and efficient. The menu was very extensive and a bit overwhelming. We decided to play it safe with out choices and I wasn't too impressed. Spring rolls were just ok. Was a little disappointed... More

We liked the great variety of Pan-Asian offerings, Vietnam, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and and many more. Huge drink menu for a big variety of smoothies, fruit drinks, and similar drinks, "bubble" drinks, and regular drinks (two large menu pages just for the drinks). A numbered picture menu as the servers do not always understand you. The food was very good,... More

Their portions are as huge as their menu. Everything is delicious. The bubble tea is a must, as it is made with real fruit. Try the mango tapioca freeze.

This was my first time eating here. The menu was kind of overwhelming, sooo many choices. The pictures of the menu choices were very helpful in making a choice. The curry choices were the best of all (see photo). The portions were very generous. Since the temp outside was -12 F I did not feel like trying one of the... More

This place is filthy. I mean come on guys, buy a broom and use it. If the staff here are so lax to let the front of the house get this dirty, I don’t even want to think about what’s going on in the kitchen. Lest you dismiss me as some Adrian Monk clean freak. I’ll just say that I... More

My daughter took me here while I was visiting her aat college. The menu is almost overwhelming with all of the choices listed. If you can't find something you don't like Asian food. The amount you get is quite substantial. Perfect for my college kid to end up with her leftovers and mine. The colors are a bit garish and... More
