Good and tasty food at a fair price

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!

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

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

We ordered 3 dishes. We started with a bowl of wonton noodle soup and finished off with 2 other dishes. A lemongrass chicken and a spicy chicken. Both delicious with huge portions!

If your eyes are sensitive to light make sure you bring your sunglasses because it is really bright with lots of CFL lights. Okay, you can't go wrong here at lunch time. You get plenty of food and the lunch specials come with 3 choices of soup and a spring roll. I have had only one bad experience here and... More

Is this restaurant an Evanston institution yet? Huge portions, every Asian dish imaginable, fast service and a cast of wait staff characters! This place is not to be missed if you're visiting Northwestern University - it's filled with students, faculty and admin. On top of pretty good food, it's VERY easy on the wallet!
