We were a group of 10, including 5 guests from Taiwan. We found Joy Teriyaki on a suggestion. What a wonderful place! Besides delicious food, and many of us had different dishes, the place is clean but the woman who runs the front, we suspect the wife of the cook in back, was fantastic...one of the best waitress/server/manager I have ever seen, no matter how fancy the restaurant is. She learned the names of some at the table after only hearing the name once, one dropped a fork and she was instantly there with a replacement and only from the sound....she was in the back at the time. Always a smile and a kind word for everyone. One asked for more rice and she brought it out with a smiley face painted in teriyaki sauce. They even brought out complimentary egg rolls in honor of our visiting Taiwanese. Did I say the food was GREAT as well?
Do not be put off by the outside appearance. It is at the end of a small strip mall with a funky grocery store at the end. However, the inside of Joy Teriyaki is clean but quite small...maybe 6 tables. This will become our new "go to" teriyaki place when we are in Tacoma....just fantastic!
