We have been eating here for the last 15 years . The food is always excellent . The service is terrific and so is the atmosphere . My favorite is their egg drop soup.

For many years, we've enjoyed the Joy of the Wok Chicken, and my wife and I did again today for lunch. Hard to believe one menu item lures us back again and again. Crispy chicken bathed in an unctuous umami-filled spicy sauce that put others' Tso's to shame. The pan-fried noodles are also excellent, but they could serve only the... More

On Sunday evening we made another trip to one of our favorite places. Our family has been going to Joy of the Wok for many years now. Although business has slowed down for them, as with almost every restaurant, those in the area who want great Cantonese food know to go to Joy of the Wok. The soups are the... More

This is a good "Americanized" Asian food restaurant. Good food, lots and lots of food, and the soups are really great. Super takeout.

Joy of the is a great Chinese restaurant, I am never disappointed when I go there. The dishes are well made and not just slopped together you can tell that the food is fresh as well. The service was very good, or waitress was very friendly and helpful and the restaurant was a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The only thing... More

We dine here almost every weekend. I will admit straight off that their appetizers are not where their strength lies. That being said, their main dishes are fantastic! Everything can be custom made to order...if you don't want your chicken fried, they'll make the dish with sliced chicken....if you want garlic sauce on your Buddha's Delight, you can get that....low...
