Lots of options, and very good oriental food. This place is one of my favorites and always busy at dinner time!

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!

The menu selection at Joy Yee's is very extensive covering the Pan Asian cuisines. Once you order, your item comes out fast and the service is superb. You get huge portions at a reasonable price. The noise level is a little high, but the food makes up for it.

This is one of my favorite lunch spots in downtown Evanston. I especially love what they do with tofu and vegetables. Their smoothies with tapioca balls are delicious. I am a vegetarian, so I cannot rate their meat and chicken dishes, but I was there with friends last week, and they loved the sweet and sour chicken they ordered, and... More

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.
