“Quality food & great staff.....”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

On Sunday evening we made another trip to one of our favorite places. Our family has been going to Joy of the Wok for many years now. Although business has slowed down for them, as with almost every restaurant, those in the area who want great Cantonese food know to go to Joy of the Wok.
The soups are the best in the area, especially the Eight Treasure Bean Curd soup. It's loaded with shrimp, tofu & many other goodies. It was great again and my wife enjoyed the hot & sour soup, says it's the best around. The shrimp fried rice was great as always, lots of flavor. We also tried the fried dumplings, plump & moist. For the main course we shared beef & scallions and the sizzling triple delight, a great dish with sea scallops/beef steak & sliced pork. Although we didn't have any this time, one thing you have to try is the Joy of the Wok chicken. Nice chunks of white meat chicken, fried, in a sweet sauce-great dish. Focusing on Cantonese dishes, one thing they don't have are egg rolls. They do have spring rolls but I find them a little greasy. We've pretty much tried everything on the menu, high quality all around, not like most of the Chinese food in the area-which can be pretty bad. The manager is a guy named Frank, great sense of humor and very friendly. Although the wait staff has been cut due to lack of customers, the ones left are super. They're knowledgable about the food and offer great service. We'll continue to go there as a couple, family and with our friends.

“Great food - great soups”
Reviewed May 2, 2010

This is a good "Americanized" Asian food restaurant. Good food, lots and lots of food, and the soups are really great. Super takeout.

“Simply Delightful”
Reviewed September 11, 2009

Joy of the is a great Chinese restaurant, I am never disappointed when I go there. The dishes are well made and not just slopped together you can tell that the food is fresh as well. The service was very good, or waitress was very friendly and helpful and the restaurant was a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The only thing is they do not list egg rolls on there menu only spring rolls and I am not crazy about shrimp or seafood , so I asked the waitress what was in it and she assured me there was nothing like that in it. The Spring Rolls where Probably my favorite part of the whole meal they were very good and tasted fresh. I would recommend joy of the wok it's really good food, it was very reasonably priced and it has a very good location on Boston Road.

“Consistently Delicious!”
Reviewed August 24, 2009

We dine here almost every weekend. I will admit straight off that their appetizers are not where their strength lies. That being said, their main dishes are fantastic! Everything can be custom made to order...if you don't want your chicken fried, they'll make the dish with sliced chicken....if you want garlic sauce on your Buddha's Delight, you can get that....low salt?....not a problem.....you name it, they will do it for you. Their service is impeccable and prices extremely reasonable! Stop in and say hello to Frank and the gang!
