The menu was very extensive and we were very pleased with our appetizers and entrees. Good wine list. Outstanding service. Great place to go if you are attending a concert or out for a night of gambling. A bit on the pricey side.

I told my brother and his girlfriend " let's go to one of the best Asian restaurant in the valley"
He said he's not fond of Asian food but his girlfriend is so we dragged him over anyways. Let me tell you, this is one of his favorite restaurant now. The food was delicious, everyone was friendly and great service.
Thank you Joy restaurant!!!

The fried rice was a little too mushy for me! The walnut prawns and green beans were delicious!!! I wouldn't take my kids though. I've been here many times before (no kids) enjoyed the quietness, without having a kid screaming the whole time while having dinner. Felt a little rushed by servers but he was nice and attentive!! I would be back though!!

We celebrated a birthday and had a wonderful evening. We also tried many of the items on the menu. All of them very good. The surprise was the large portions, there was plenty of food to share. We will be coming back again soon.

They failed to honor my request for table service in the bar area. I made this request when I made the reservation because the restaurant is inordinately loud. The bar area has a tolerable noise level.

The waiter was friendly, helpful and did a very nice job for us.

The food was tasteful, well-prepared, well-served and abundant.

The cocktails were tiny (I never saw such small cocktail glasses!) and expensive.

I would only recommend Joy if the folks don't mind eating in a very noisy place, don't care where they are seated and don't mind high priced drinks.

Always eat here before a show. Food was excellent.
Our waitress was the best -- since they give you generous
portions, she boxed up the leftovers along with utensils and
sauce. The meal was even better the next day. A must try
for anyone looking for good food at Fantasy Springs.

The soup had no flavor limited amount of veggies & small portion for two. The main course ingredients tasted old, like it had bee sitting around. Meat was tough, no pork & limited seafood. I was also sick the next day!!

Our server was very attentive, however the food was NOT good. We ordered spicy cucumber appetizer, the cucumbers were cut very large and had a bitter taste. For entrées we had Pan fried noodles with chicken, not crispy at all very soggy, and The Mongolian beef had no flavor at all, however the meat was tender. We won't be going back, SORRY.

As we waited on our meal , the couple sitting next to us was leaving the table, the woman said "This was a wonderful dinner. We saw the sign and decided to eat here after checking into the hotel. Woe, are we glad! It was the best asian meal we have had in years." I said, "We know excatly how you feel!"
