“Every time we're in town we come here!”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

The chicken coconut curry and the panang (w/ crispy) noodles is AMAZING! We cannot recommend this place highly enough. We used to live in the neighborhood and after being away for 10 years this is still the place we think about and miss.

“My Favorite Thai Restaurant In Chicago”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Lunch Specials are inexpensive and you get a lot for the price. Great food, love it! This was a regular spot for me and my friends. One of the saddest things about moving from Chicago is I don't get to go there unless I visit.

“Not So Good”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

My wife and I ate at Joy's yesterday. First the dumpling soup contained what appeared to be not fresh, but frozen out of date dumplings. They were very hard inside and the pasta wrapping looked like it had freezer burn (we sent it back). Second, the Pad Thai was horrific. It was like a big wad of very sticky and very sweet noodles, with absolutely no flavor reminiscent of Pad Thai (should be slightly sweet, slightly spicy, and with a flavor of peanuts).

Don't waste your time or money at this place.

“Best. Thai. Food. Ever”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We've been eating at Joy's for 12 years +. Consistently great - quick and friendly service - custom orders not a problem. We have our favorite items, but even when we veer off & try something new we love the food! BYOB - nice patio hidden in back too...
