Golden Joy is one of the best eateries located in the not to convenient locality of Tangra which was essentially an industrial zone not so long ago. The roads are narrow and bad. But if you can make your way there would find quite some good value for money bars and resturants. This area also known as the China Town used to be the main hub for the Chineese community in Kolkata.
The food is good and drinks are cheap. But one problem is that while you visit with family you get to sit upstairs which is nicely decorated and recently rennovated, offers a great ambience and good service. But if you are visiting as stags you are made to sit below in a small dingy ugly place with pathetic service. But still, it is worth visiting if you plan to booze as drinks come very cheap and makes up for the lack of good ambience.

Well, you can come to this place when you must have tried everything else on earth. Golden Joy is actually located in not so convenient place. People who are from the area or know the local can only reach others have to rely on gps or the word of mouth.

Parking is ample. Not a problem. The hotel person/wallet who gets your car shamelessly would ask for a tip while you would leave.

Service is not that good and not at all great. You will not be even asked for water. They won't give you. You will have to ask for it. No one even comes with the menu. In fact I would say they do not come for anything by themselves. And even when you call for them the first time they ignore as if you were not heard. Second time they say they are coming. Then finally when you call the third time they come. This is the worst type of service. They are always crowded and they have a huge seating arrangement. But then whats the use of this vastness when you can't even serve properly and attend people properly.

Now lets come to the food. Its OK and not good. Our non-veg friends enjoyed but not that much, and we vegetarians were not that happy. In our whole time of eating no attendant or waiter or table managers came to us. Horrible, simply horrible. Food came quickly. Probably because they were mass-cooking things thats why they could serve faster.

The bill came after three times of asking and after 15 minutes. The shameless waiter would ask for the tip. For the first time ever we did not leave a single penny for tip.

I would not have written this review as you could just not even consider this for your chinese food craving but I seriously would like the restaurant management people to read this. But then they would never have time as they are never short of customers. No one to hear. No damn service.

I have gone to this place quite a few times. If you happen to be seating in the family area the service is decent. If its a boys only group they make you sit in a dark dingy place with horrible service. The service was pathetic that I could not believe what was happening.
On top of the disgusting service, they actually asked for a tip, yes asked.

I left promising to myself never to come back ever again.

A great place with good ambiance and above all superb Chinese food. I am visiting this restaurant for the last 6 years and seen it growing every year. The recent renovation has made it even more beautiful in terms of ambiance. Great value and Taste which hasn't change at all in these years. Its a great place for family gathering and party also. Keep it up team Golden Joy...all the best.
