Just ok

Staff was great, but the food could use some improvement. My husband and I were seated very fast, however, the service was quite slow despite the low number of people in the restaurant. Our server was great; very respectful and nice.

Joy Luck seems to have a cult following, and I just don't understand why. Each time I visit, I am reminded why I am not a part of it. The food just isn't that good - it's as simple as that. With The Mandarin so close, I'm not sure why anyone would want to come here. Servers are always friendly... More

The menu has a large selection of food. I have eaten here enough to realize the food has the same taste everytime. My family loves the mango chicken. The owner is always working just as hard as the employees.

Snappy service with decent portions of good food served at a great price....?? What's not to like? My first visit to Joy Luck was a very pleasant surprise. With mediocre Chinese dives showing up on every other corner, my expectations have been systematically lowered over the past few years. Joy Luck has restored my faith to become my new "go... More

At our school, we do take out once a month for all interested employees. It usually is more than 2/3 of our staff that participates. We love the change in pace and they offer us a great price.

Last few visits to this restaurant have been a disappointment and I feel the food quality is slipping. Last (and it will be the last) visit we ordered the "Neptune's Platter" and the "star" of the dish - a piece of lobster - was gray and rubbery and looked like it had been in the freezer beyond it's time.

Joy luck restaurant is truly the finest Chinese food in all of Davis County. There are other restaurants with better known names but none with finer foods or service. We have been to joy luck dozens of times over the years and not once have they failed to satisfy us. Their sweet and sour pork is to die for as... More

I don't know if there has been a change in ownership, but the food quality has deteriorated badly. This used to one of our favorite restaurants before we moved out of state. While visiting with friends we decided to go back to celebrate old times. While our server tried very hard, she obviously had no experience. She spent almost as... More

Went on a Friday at about 4:30 PM. Not many customers in the area we were seated although there were a lot of cars in the parking lot. We did see a steady stream of to-go orders so the kitchen was not idle. Very friendly staff, kept the water glasses full and were very solicitous of us. We decided to... More

I've eaten at this restaurant a few times while in Woods Cross. The food is fair at best. The fried rice was dry and flavorless. The items in it were a few frozen peas and carrots and a few 1/2" squares of deli ham on top. The sweet and sour chicken was heavily breaded, but the sauce was typical. To... More
