Good Chinese food. Good selection. Good service. The Cashew Chicken and Hunan Chicken are both delicious.

We’ve had dinner here other times and it has changed for the bad. The waiter bare lit spoke English and was in a bad mood. They used to serve wine and beer now they don’t. Even Chinese green tea is not served anymore unless you...want a Kyoto’s green tea. Food is now mediocre when it was acceptable. Won’t be coming backMore

I love Asian food but my wife doesn’t so I looked in on this place since it’s close to me. A little hard to find. Ordered Kung Pao chicken. My go to for first time visiting. Got take out. Came with fried rice in little...boxes. Not bad but very little spice. Not flavorful. Generous portion. Well prepared just not spiced well.More

Great place for a quick lunch meeting, the staff is always glad to see you and friendly. The food is well prepared and is always steaming hot when served. If you like oriental food you have an extensive menu to order from that sometimes is...hard to decide.More

We meet here twice a month at least for a Company employee meeting, each person can order what they want for lunch from the nice lunch menu and everyone seems to enjoy it and some usually have some left over to take home.

All the entrees we have tried are above average in quantity, and excellent quality ingredients. Good service, clean (restrooms, too) and always fresh flowers at the front desk. Very friendly, too. We will be back.

We had seen a great review in the local newspaper so decided to try this restaurant for lunch. There was ample food for lunch of good quality and a very good price. What was missing was anything interesting in the menu. The variety on the...lunch menu was poor: no noodle dishes, no imagination in the seafood or meat. We asked for a copy of the dinner menu and found the it also lacking in imagination and interesting food. If you want a solid Chinese meal with good quality, ample portions and a good price, this restaurant is for you. If you want a Chinese restaurant that will wow you, the House of Joy is not for you.More

This was our first time eating here and all of the food was delicious. Service was excellent and food served very quickly. The owner prepared a special dish for my wife which she had requested. Extra rice was given at no extra charge. Restaurant was...decorated very nice and tastefully to enjoy your meal in an aesthetic setting. We highly recommend this Chinese restaurant.More
