It was fine

It had been a few years since our last visit, but since in the area we stopped at Joy Asia. Most things were exactly the same. The decor was a bit dingy but my kids loved looking at all the fish tanks. Our favorite things are the crab rangoon and the hot and sour soup, everything else was ok; not... read more

The place is very dated and in much need of a renovation. I went for a night of karaoke with friends. I wasn't drinking alcoholic drinks but those who did had no complaints. A trip to the bar to ask about virgin cocktail options turned into a diet coke order after a conversation with a bartender who had no interest... More

We've tried takeout here before and were disappointed. We went back last night for some drinks with a group of 5 and had a fun night. The drinks are your typical Chinese well drinks that are dirt cheap. Big menu. Also-- Friday nights they have Karaoke. This was a blast! Overall, the food needs some serious fixing along with the...

We visited Joy Asia on Christmas day of 2014. Our order consisted of chicken & Peapods, veggie fried rice. The food was good, but the venue was old and tired. There were stains on the walls and carpets. If the restroom needed work, how clean was the kitchen.

We have been in the area for close to 30 yrs. I think the Joy of Asia restaurant predates us. In all that time I do not ever recall the place being remodeled. But hey I dont remember yesterday either! Anyway it looks like it hasnt been renovated and is in desperate need. I sat there looking up at the... More

We have been going to Joy Asia for many years. The food is good, but last night the food was cold even though we arrived at 6 pm when the food was being put out. They did not have the steamers going underneath the food. The dinner plates are always ice cold. My main complaint is about the cleanliness and... More

Me and my family walked into Joy Aisa for the first time in at least four years. I remembered coming here with friends, and thinking it was ok. My family then decided it would be nice to revisit, seeing as we had just had a long car ride. We were greeted at the front desk with high hopes. We picked... More

Had the lunch buffet but nothing worth going back again for. Some of the bowls were empty. Service was good.

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.
