Went there with son and grandson (12) food was wonderful, they were concerned as grandson ordered Lamb Vindaloo that he loved, the waiter came with bowl of yogurt just in case without asking, very considerate of him. Given a free aperitif while waiting for taxi, overall a good experience and all staff attentive. Went there many years ago, still just... More

I visited with friends on Saturday night. I found the food to be a nice mix of standard dishes and some more interesting ones. The aubergine dish was lovely! Personally I didn't find the staff inattentive so all in all I was pleased with my evening.

Popped in for a quick Ruby mid evening and I have to say the food was bland and overall very disappointing. In contrast the staff were friendly and the table service was excellent. Its a shame the food let them down.

Well... What can I say. I'm actually very surprised by Joy. I parked up outside not expecting much but I was warmly welcomed as was my girlfriend, we sat down the place was warm, the table was spotless the linen was spotless, the lighting was just right and the place just generally looked clean the way I expect it. The... More

Really well laid out restaurant. Get a table at the back where you can talk in quiet. Many restaurants in Surbiton are too tightly packed so you struggle to talk. This is ideal Food is really good too. Yes, really good. Friendly staff - not sure what other reviews are about. We spent several hours catching up with friends and... More

I took my team there for lunch at the recommendation by one of the team. We had great food, but the waiter and staff were sullen and unfriendly which put a damper on the celebratory meal. I am unlikely to go back again because of that!

Nice enough staff but food was mediocre at best. Asked for a chilly naan and the black pepper was more spicy. Aloo tiki was cold Samosas were the tesco specials just fried Mixed grill was ok £30 a head on average with 2 drinks

3 of us visited. All plates licked clean. Samosa starters could have been larger but portion sizes of the mains made up for it. Left with fully bellies. Well portioned, reasonably priced, nice (brand new) decor. Good service and turnaround time. Small 3-inch step into the restaurant and wheelchair accessible bathroom available. Will return.

Oh dear....ordered a takeaway on Sunday evening. Slop turned up! Unrecognisable and couldn't define the taste. Definitely won't be investing in joys weird food anymore. Absolute rubbish!
