Description: Welcome to Joy Restaurants, we are an independent group of Quality Indian Restaurants in Bournemouth, Ferndown, Wallisdown and Southbourne.On opening my first restaurant Ferndown Spice at the age of 22, my vision was to bring contemporary dining to Dorset and become the best in the area-not just a curry house! The group expanded in 2003 with the addition of Jidan Taj and in 2011 our latest restaurant, Joy.Our aim is to provide you with a unique, enjoyable dining experience with delicious range of diverse innovative Indian/Bangladesh dishes full of flavour.All our dishes follow the philosophy of healthy cooking, and cooked to order with traditional methods using the freshest, finest ingredients and well presented. Enjoy a cold Indian beer with your meal or a glass of something from our extensive wine list. Delectable desserts provide a fitting end to your meal.All our restaurants are designed for you, with comfort, luxury and good value in mind. Enjoy our contemporary relaxed surroundings and exemplary friendly service.Wonderful hospitality and consistently outstanding Indian cuisine, where discerning diners return time and time again.Martin MiahProprietor

The atmosphere is comfortable, the resturant itself is beautiful, the service was brilliant very accommodating. The food was delicious, the chicken was moist and tender the flavours were incredible. Even got a free drink for eating in. Will be going back.

Thank you for your comments.
We are happy that you have enjoyed your visit with us, we do get very busy and at times there are delays which are due to high volume.

All our food is cooked to order and unfortunately some delays are unavoidable, however if you have limited time please inform us and we will do our best to minimise delays.

After dropping our son back at uni we needed some dinner, spotted this restaurant looking absolutely lovely from the outside. Very large glass windows showing black tables, cream leather chairs, really smart looking. We had poppadom with the usual, followed by the salmon which was cooked to perfection, i had the chickpeas which were also fab. The main was a chicken balti and i had the special which changes which was chicken on the bone with mince, also had the best naan ever and saag bhargi. It was all delightful and I would not hesitate to go back and eat here. Fabulous.

Thankyou for your comments.
The chefs have been made aware of your concerns.

Indian food is very much cooked with ghee and oil, and very much part of the favour both taste and appearance, however on this occasion they were not used to your likening.
We are always looking to cook the healthiest way possible and are always trying to minimise cooking fat, please inform your waiter when ordering and it's our promise that the food will be cooked that way.

We look forwarding to welcoming you back.
