Excellent food - ok venue

We have been to this Joy Yee many times and the food is consistently good. The lunch specials Mon - Fri are a very good deal. The chicken basil is really good. The frozen fruit smoothies are also excellent. Ask for the smoothie in a to go cup so you can take the rest with you. They are huge... read more

Good food, wonderful smoothies made from real fruit. Tables are lined up so that they almost touch--kinda like eating in a college dining hall. Boisterous atmosphere, but everyone seems to be having a good time. Menu is very varied and food is well prepared. Service is attentive and the wait staff usually gets the orders right.

I've been to Joy Yee's three times during my stay in Evanston. The main reason was my hotel being just a few steps away, and their take away option. Portions were very generous (at least for a non-American like myself), however food was generally tasteless and difficult to digest. I love Asian food (Thai, Chinese, Indonesian and Korean) however food... More

Joy yee's has the best smoothies ever. Fresh fruits that are being cut just for your smoothie and a nice food menu to match.

Our first visit on Saturday was excellent. Even after 25 min of waiting in line, the food was quickly brought out and they were very tasty. Our second visit on weekday was not as good. Food was brought out quickly, but none of them were as tasty. Pho was warm, not hot. Noodles were little overcooked. Chicken and pork had... More

Sad to report that having been away for awhile, our recent visit there was really just very so-so... We love the vast variety of choices here in food & beverages, but the quality was not there - also the bathroom was horrific. My little niece couldn't handle being in there. Service is always just so-so, not super friendly, but ok.... More

A good place for a tight budget. A favorite for students. Dozens, really dozens of fruity smoothies, a very large menu, large portions and a prompt and friendly service. Can be crowded on week-ends. Give it a try!

An always busy atmosphere with lots of chatter about, Joy Yee Noodle makes the BEST fruit smoothies ever!! Our favorite dishes on the menu are Thai Spicy Basil Chow Fun and Korean Chop Chae Noodles. Their Vietnamese spring rolls are fresh, soups are plentiful, and the portions are overwhelming. It won't disappoint!

There is a huge selection of Chinese, Korean , Thai Vietnamese dishes. Portions are generous. You can find better elsewhere but not as varied a selection or as reliably done well. Their smoothie, bubble teas etc come in so many combinations it covers couple pages in the menu. Decor is not fancy. Tables can be very cozy to almost effectively... More
