- Too noisy!BetsyDined on 11/22/2014Tried this place a few times. Great food but SLOW bar service every time! We had 5 in our party and only two could converse as the others were miserable with the noise level. Asked for the ONLY quiet area table (which was empty) and told it's only available with 8 people... It's possible lunchtime might be better. Sorry, probably won't return.Special Features:
- Great food brings Joy!CmluckDined on 11/20/2014The food combined with great service makes this a "go-back" restaurant! A wide variety of delicious dishes makes it tough to choose...seriously good lemon shrimp, and wonderful chicken dishes and pork dishes and beef dishes...and the appetizer platter is a great way to start! Our group of 8 each picked their favorite and then we shared and shared and shared! Quantity is generous! You won't be disappointed at Joy!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- edna0109VIPDined on 10/6/2014We arrived and had dinner at this restaurant at 5:00PM instead of 3:00PM on Oct 6 - Monday. Please advice if my account has been adjusted. Thank you, Edna BartlettSpecial Features:
- luv2dishDined on 10/4/2014Simply cannot their version of shrimp with walnuts, particularly since it is made with jumbo prawns, and the spicy eggplant is very comparable. Round it out with the light, fresh summer roll and you've got a great meal that's light for our "warmer" year round climate.Special Features:

- DeliciousLQTENADined on 9/11/2014We dined with friends, which made the experience even better because we got to try dishes we would not usually order. We were happy with every dish we all ordered. This is the best chinese food in the Coachella Valley. Always taste fresh and yummy. The experience start to finish is first rate. Would recommend to anyone and everyone I know.Special Features:

- Best AsianDesertDivaRLPCCDined on 8/24/2014Best Asian food in the desert. Prices are moderate to expensive but you really get well prepared and healthy portions for your money. Only problem is the noise level. Peoples voices carry and noises bounce off the walls at high levels and interfere with moderate conversations. Not casino noise, people noise. Otherwise very good.Special Features:

- OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 7/5/2014The restaurant was very busy but staff were very pleasant and hellpful. Wait staff and hostess were awesome. Food portions are wonderful size but Id rather have a better quality meat instead of double portion of something lower quality. The chicken lettuce wraps were bland and tasteless. Moo goo gai pan loved the veggies but the meal was too salty and I didnt need that much meat. the sauce was good.Special Features:
- DonnaDonnaDined on 7/3/2014Amazing as usual!!!!!! Wouldn't go anywhere else for Chinese Food in the Coachella Valley!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice service, poor to ok food.ConcealedDined on 6/21/2014Sweet and sour soup is really bad, the calamari was over cooked, chewy and tough, the honey walnut shrimp was cold. The rest of our order (3 other entree items) were hot and just fine though not remarkable. Since the restaurant is located in Fantasy Springs Casino, we ate there before a show. For the convenience it is an okay place to eat. If it had to stand on it's own, I don't think I would recommend eating there.Special Features:
- Great unexpected find!!PamelabDined on 6/18/2014We were visiting Palm Desert with the family (9 of us). Our concierge recommended JOY- it is a winner!! Everything was perfect!! Definitely will go back. Food was fabulous, service was impeccable and overall experience was a 10!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great Chinese in the DesertChristeneDined on 4/4/2014Good American-Chinese food for the Westerners and some authentic dishes for the Chinese-Chinese palates.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best find!BetsyDined on 4/4/2014We have not been real happy with any of the Chinese we've found in the area. But we are so glad we chose this that night! The food was top-notch and the service was the best! At first we thought it a bit pricey, but then realized it's family-style and so everyone ordered one thing and we shared! When we were finished, we had some leftover. We only wish we could have taken it with us! I might ask them next time if they could hold it in the refrigerator for us while we're at our show, I just didn't think of it then. Best Mushu pork ever!, the panfried noodles were yummy! as were the egg rolls, the dimsum dumplings and the snow peas. Really! Give this place a try! We like fantasy Springs Casino so we will definitely be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- dinnerBigJohnDined on 3/27/2014Walnut Shrimp was excellent, however the Bass Fillet was not as expected; to soft, was breaded and deep fat fried and drowned in red sweet sauce (glaze). On line reservation was excellent to use.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best food in the valleyRetiredDined on 3/14/2014Joy was fantastic. Awesome Asian cuisine at a fair price and excellent service. We will be back.Special Features:
- Terrible ServiceHorse101Dined on 3/7/2014We look forward to eatting at the restaurant yearly when attending the Desert Circuit Horse Show. Service was terrible. Had to ask for refills of water and hot tea. We had to flag down our waiter to take our order and once the food was served never came by to ask how the food was. One of the items ordered never came so we had to flag him down to ask about it. I called days in advance of my reservation to add a guest to my party and was told the restaurant coud not accomodate. I checked back the day of my reservation to see if there were any changes and again told no. There was room to put an additional person on our table. What was annoying was while seated I overheard a party of 4 with no reservation able to demand a table.Special Features:
- Always outstanding...TonichamDined on 2/28/2014Our fav place to take family and friends...the food is always outstanding and service excellent. Beautiful restaurant. Only thing we hate....is the two pounds we gain after our dinner!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The food was excellent asOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 2/27/2014The food was excellent as usual but the service was not. We had a new waiter and waited a long time for our drinks. One dish was not what we ordered.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- One of the best Chinese/AsiangolfergirlVIPDined on 2/21/2014One of the best Chinese/Asian restaurants outside of N.Y. Hot and sour soup a winner so is the dan dan noodle dish, Prices are very fair considering it's inside the Fantasy casino.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Pleasantly surprisedDonnaDined on 2/15/2014Better than we thought it would be. Highly recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Awesome Asian DiningmejhVIPDined on 2/14/2014Lunch was very reasonably priced. The wonton soup was the best I've ever had with large stuffed wontons and broth filled with lots of slivered pork & bok choy leaves. The general tso chicken & kung pao chicken dishes were excellent with lots of vegetables. The fried rice and spring roll that came with the entree were also very good. The spring roll was perfectly prepared and not greasy. Everything was hot and fresh! The service was excellent. Besides the waiter and his helper stopping by frequently, the hostess and the manager also stopped by to check on us during our lunch.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Ups and downsallproDined on 2/13/2014The food was great. Especially the Spring Rolls and 3 Chicken Dish. Two complaints. First with a reservation since November for dinner in February, I was still placed in the bar for dinner. Other couples who came after me without a reservation were placed in the main dining area. The other complaint is that service was very slow, especially when it came time to pay the bill.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best Chinese Food!!DonnaDined on 2/7/2014There is no place better for Chinese Food in the Coachella Valley than JOY!!!! Especially the Honey Walnut Shrimp - may be a bit pricey - but well worth it!!! Have never had a bad meal....always delicious!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Good mealyankeefanDined on 1/10/2014We have dined at Joy several times and have never been disappointed with the food or service. This time it was a little louder than usual and though we would have enjoyed a more quiet atmosphere (or not quite as energetic) as always the food and service were great...will definitely be back!!Special Features:
