Located on the Connecticut River in Bellows Falls, Joy Wah features an extensive menu of Chinese delicacies. The Moo-shu pork was the best I've had outside of NY's Chinatown.

For those of you who were born in the 1960s and beyond this is the place for us in Vermont! Just mediocre like you used to get with your parents. Heavy on the sauces and veggies laden with msg sauce but short on serious quality protein or any real flavor. Owners are gracious but quick to mention all of the extra "healthy" charges. Fried, cheap food is quickly served and always hot. Brown rice is an up charge which is a bit bizarre based on their existing prices which are not cheap for what you are getting. Order the chicken chow mein for 12 bucks and you get $1 dollar worth of hot delicious sliced cabbage smothered in an msg sauce (barf) and please search for the 3 miniscule slices of dark meat chicken. 20 dollars for a fried pu pu platter for 2. Overall, in CT/NY this style and type of quality would be takeout only in a strip mall. It would not survive long outside this Northern location without serious improvement.

Any time of the year is a good time to eat here good food & service. When we go we try to get a window seat because the view is wonderful of the Connecticut river .

Had a fantastic meal here. Service was outstanding. Food was great and quality. I moved a few years ago and now live an hour from here and the Chinese food where I live is awful. I haven't found Chinese that is anywhere near as good as Joy Wah. Such a great treat when I come through this way.
