Skip the food....Karaoke on Fridays.

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... read more

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.

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
