“Yummy Thai, good service, moderate portion size”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Food and service were both good. Portion size for entree was a bit small compared to other restaurants, but nice for two <150 lb women to share w/appitizer. They did pretty good with atmosphere with the building they have. Overall recommend!

“Good Service, Good Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

The servers are friendly at this good Thai restaurant. The food is good; not great, not bad. The environment is friendly enough at this converted sub shop. The prices are a tad higher than at comparable restaurants.

“Top notch Thai!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

I'm a vegetarian. If you are to, you're gonna love this place. I got to meet the real Joy myself. She is the owner and does much of the cooking. She doesn't speak fluent English, but she knows how to speak flavor. I had what local magazines are calling "The best spring rolls in Minnesota!" For once, I can actually believe print! I followed the spring rolls with Basil Tofu. It was recommended for the spices and since I like it hot...well...you get the picture. This is not my first visit to Joy. Each time I've dined here I've left completely satisfied. The food is outstanding, the service is beyond friendly and the atmosphere is very warm. There is a lot of love and sincerity happening in the kitchen. One bite and you'll understand.

“Wonderful Thai food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Located right on Lyndale in a funny little building (aren't the best eateries in funny buildings?), this is a Thai spot that should not be missed. Their Massaman curry is awesome, and wonderful Pad Thai. My husband had this Walleye special that was fantastic! For sure worth a visit!

“A jewel in Richfield”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Joy's Pattaya Thai is not easy to find unless you live nearby but when you find it, it's heaven. Flavor, smells, spices (the real stuff) and the service all for a very good price. Don't look at the building (old diner), just go in and enjoy some real Thai food.
