I went here with some friends for karaoke. It smells like a filthy locker room. Dark and dirty. Fast service though. The drinks were good. I didn't like any of the food. Fatty, over fried, thick batter, so gross. The karaoke was at concert level. Very obnoxious. One of my friends pit earplugs in. It at tracks an interesting clientel.... More

Here is one of those "I'm eating Chinese food and wondering if the health inspectors should let this continue" moments. The staff are great, but the kitchen is failing them. Be careful at Joy Asia.

We ordered take out from Joy Asia last night. The man who took our order was not overly friendly but not rude either. We ordered pork fried rice, chicken lo mein, and general tsaos chicken. It was average. We weren't blown away but we weren't completely disgusted either.

The food to me was always delicious. It's the "Old Karaoke D.J. Nikki ("Stevie Nicks") who disappeared with the wind. I appreciate the comment that you miss me :) I moved to around the Virginia Beach area- no snow ya know. I miss you guys terribly but my life had to move on. We will always have the wonderful memories... More

We used to love going to this place for the drinks and karaoke. The last few times, we've still had fun but it's not as good as it was before. The food is bad and always makes us sick so we don't eat it. Drinks only!

We used to go to Joy Asia all the time. We especially liked that they have a dinner buffet every night of the week, and every lunchtime. The problem is that the food is NEVER hot enough on the buffet, or they run out of something and take forever to refill it. The food used to be great, not any... More

I've been going to the Joy for the past 6 yrs on & off. The food isn't bad, not the best but I like the Sunkist Crispy Chicken with Walnuts. The waiters are very nice, I've never had an issue with them. They always remember us and what we drink even if we haven't been in awhile. The buffet is... More

I've been here several times on a Friday/Saturday evening to partake in karaoke! The female karaoke dj is hilarious! There's a whole wall of props you are allowed to use though most people don't. The dj does, however, use them! For example, if you sing "Kryptonite" she'll put on a cape and head dress and go around pretending she's flying!!... More

It's not wonderful, but it's not bad. They deliver, and it's good enough for us to order again. There is no GREAT Chinese place in Marlboro, which means everyone will have to settle. This is what we have settled on.
