Must have been a different chef,food tasted different. Noise level terrible....big party dining and no attempt to quiet them. Have dined here before,not sure if we will return.
All 4 in our group rate the food and service with the highest ranking. And, we eat out a lot and are very picky.
Hands down the best Chinese food we have had in years. Huge portions, great selection of menu items. It is quite noisy and it is made worse by the awful, u shaped booth we were given, facing into the room. Uncomfortable to talk to the person next to you and impossible for people across the table to hear each other. That aside the meal was well worth the trip.
We go here often, as we live in Indio. The service is always wonderful, as is the food. I rated the food a 3 star on this review as it was not hot and just so-so. Our leftovers were mixed up with our friend's also.
Best Asian restaurant in the desert. It’s been a long time since the area had decent Chinese food but here it is. Service was a bit slower than last time but it was really busy even on a Tuesday night. Don’t go without a reservation.
Great in every way strongly recommend. It was a 75tj birthday and it was spectCular
I was meeting my daughter who was taking Amtrak from Hollywood to Indio.
Amtrak arrives at 9, so we got downstairs from our room at about 10 we were greeted and given a lovely table and we ordered to Tito's dirty martinis which were outstanding. They brought us water and we asked questions regarding the menu which they checked with the chef and there was no problem on them accommodating my daughter in any way shape or form. Service was excellent the manager came over and double-checked our service and if we needed anything and the food was out standing. But the bill was even a bigger shocker very decently priced and the fact that they stay open until 11 p.m. was within itself a gift. Highly recommend and would go again * 10
Awesome as always
Truly enjoyed this, our fourth, visit to Joy. Treated company from out-of-town to dinner.
The Asian food was some of the best I've ever had. Will return there in a heart beat. Can't wait to try another entree.
Very good service! Attentive to needs and very prompt srevice. All food was hot!
We have been to Joy many times and have always had excellent service and food. Based on that we decided to take our son there to celebrate his birthday. It didn’t turn out well, we made a reservation and were seated within a few minutes of our scheduled time. It went down hill from there, it was over ten minutes before our waiter arrived. What we found out later, from the manager was that he was working a large party in another room which meant we rarely saw him. It took 45 minutes for our appetizers to arrive, and they weren’t hot. Our dinner took almost 90 minutes and when it did arrive the waiter said ‘did you want rice’ then he disappeared and after almost 10 minutes I went and found the manager, he brought our rice. The manager then started watching and saw that our waiter never came back. He then came over and took care of us. Unfortunately the evening was ruined for my son.
While I have had many good experiences at Joy, this was not one of them. I would say that if you go there and the service seems very slow, don’t wait as long as I did to find the manager.
Excellent meals and service!
Food always great very noisy
The food is excellent, but don't be in a hurry. Service is slow.
We were happy with our dinner
I just wish the waiter remembers our anniversary
Had a wonderful dinner as usual. Took friends who have never been there and enjoyed it very much. The lemon drop martini is a must. We had soup egg rolls and 4 dishes. Took home half of our dinner. Service was great, no complaints.
We were going to a Concert at Fantasy Springs and decided to try "Joy" before it started. Food was very good and portions were large. We were able to keep our leftovers at the restaurant and pick it up after the concert. Nice touch.
The food & service were excellent. We were searching for Peking Duck and found it here. It was delicious and we will definitely be back.
We have been here three times in just two months because the food and service is very good. The night shift Manager, Roy, happened to be here every time and we were quite taken by his professionalism and friendliness. Every time he has stopped by our table to check on our comfort and satisfaction, I noticed he seems to check every guest's table.
With the quality food, caring service from all the staff and the manager's attention to our satisfaction, why would anyone not be a repeat customer.
Been here many times. The food was exceptionally good. The 5 of us shared lemon shrimp, Mongolian beef, sweet and sour pork, orange chicken and fried rice. All were outstanding. Many tables of 6 or more so it became a bit noisy.
Outstanding meal and service
Unbearable noise! Brand new Manager could not answer basic questions about the menu & wine. Calamari dish was greasy & rubbery. Other dishes were acceptable but not exceptional for the price.
Well, finally a great place for Asian cuisine in this area. Having lived here for 16 years, I long ago gave up on getting anything other than mediocre Asian food. However, this restaurant, located inside Fantasy Springs casino was worth the trip to the East. We didn’t even gamble except on the food and we were big winners. It will quickly become one restaurant that joins a very small number of great places in the area.
Loved everything about this place. If you are looking for good asian food, this is the place. The egg rolls are great. The portions are generous and delicious. We took home enough for another meal. We will definitely make this a regular dining spot.
Food had excellent flavor ,great spices , and was served hot. Service was Outstanding and Friendly !
One of our favorite and most frequented restaurants. Great for a romantic early dinner, show place for out of town visitors. Great customer service and ambience normally found at high end restaurants.
Menu offers good selection of asian cuisine that is never disappointing.
My friend and I have eaten at Joy a few times. This visit, while the food was good, the spicy cucumbers were not. The cucumbers were cut sloppily, and they were drowning in a very spicy sauce; very disappointing. There seems to be a language barrier as well.
Very disappointed we did not get into the dinning room with a reservation. We had to eat in the bar, and there was a very big table in there and very noisy.
So lucky to live in Indio and have Joy close by. It is by far the BEST chinese food you will ever have! Everything is incredibly fresh and portions are huge! The restaurant is beautiful and the service impeccable! The crispy lemon shrimp and/or chicken is amazing!!! You will not be disappointed.
Wonderful meal with family visiting from out of town!
Joy is always great! We've dined here many times and often recommend it to friends.
We go to Joy a least 8-10 times a year. We live here in La Quinta all yea around. We brought friends last night and told them how good the food was. The food was cold including our soups. The waitress was terrible, she did not bring out the requested steamed rice and the extra sauce for my seafood dish until we had eaten 3/4 of our meal. I will try the restaurant once more, but if my experience is the same as last night I will never go there again or will never recommend it again.
Best Chinese food in this area for sure! Good service attentive and personable. Overall a very good experience.
The service was exceptional and the food was very tasty and arrived hot. Will definitely come again
I love this place! . Since It is kind of far a way from Cathedral City where I live . I don’t go that often as I want to . So every time I have an opportunity definitely I eat there . I wish the lighting was slightly better since is kind of dark and becomes difficult to read the menus . And hopefully they can add Blue Moon beer to the bar .
I have been here several times!!! My family loves it here!
Attending the concert and had a nice dinner at Joy.
We dine at Joy several times a year and always enjoy it.
Although we had a reservation thru your reservation system we ended up in the noisey bar
