Thai is about the most popular Asian restaurant in Evanston. The food menu is extensive and good bubble drinks. The food has nice presentations and large portion, very good for the college students and family meal. The taste is ok, but the variety of the food choices made us come back again and again.

Wide selection of Asian meals and smoothies/bubble teas. I got the jackfruit drink and it was awesome. Food is really good ad value.

This is absolutely the best Chinese food in Evanston area. The service is super fast, friendly and the food you get is overly-portioned. There was nothing we did not find tasty. Everything looks delicious when brought to the table. This is a hot spot and sometimes can be crowded, which I find as a great sign for fabulous food. Must... More

This was by far our favorite place to eat during our month in Evanston. It was the kind of place that after the first time we all kept wanting to go back again and again. The drinks are so fun and delicious with all the different flavors and possible mix-ins. Our favorite was frozen watermelon with mango bobos. We had... More

The menu is very extensive. I was with a Chinese friend, who helped me choose. It would help to study the menu on line before visiting. I had shrimp, pork, eggs and vegetables over rice. It was very good and abundant.

It has a clean and simple environment for dinning. So many food to choose from, and the taste is sooo great! And every dish is almost enough for two women or a man with big stomach. I really love the tropical juice and smoothies, and it definitely worth trying multiple times with family! :)

TIP 1: Consider ordering "family style" where everyone enjoys all the dishes since they are so big it would generally be too much for one person to eat. TIP 2: If it is your first time, go online beforehand and scout the menu as it crosses several cuisines and is rather extensive. TIP 3: Try one of their smoothie/fruit mix... More

Evening walks are meant to burn calories. The intention is always that but this evening the hear-say about Joy-yee's juice drinks made us pop i to the restaurant. Appetizing smell of Chinese food wafted as we hard-pushed the door open. As it was too early for dinner, we stuck with the original idea of juice. The idea of tapioca balls... More

Delicious, juicy, seasoned to perfection food. The menu is very intimidating because it never stops, however since this was my first visit I let the very friendly server pick for me. I gave her three criteria - meat, spicy, no rice. Man was it good. Seating is cafeteria style with table side menu service. Prices are reasonable but not cheap... More
