We were jet lagged so we walked down to The Joy Inn and ordered food to go. We bought it back to our guesthouse and proceeded to indulge. The food was as good as any San Franciscan Chinese restaurant. I highly recommend!

Went to this restaurant for a friend's 40th Birthday. It was honestly the best Chinese food I've ever tasted. Staff were so friendly, the restaurant itself was very clean and welcoming. 100% recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the city

I don't go out for a Chinese sit in often but this one is a real treat! The staff are so friendly and the food is amazing!! It's so fresh and doesn't even leave you feeling stodgy like some other chineses. Excellent restaurant will definitely be back again and again!

We stayed in the ETAP hotel which is next door to the Joy Inn. After a full on day we fell out of our hotel after reviewing the Joy Inn on line, and it did not disappoint. It was Saturday night and we had not booked, but they found us a great table. The food was great, my only negative... More

Visited last Saturday night with a friend and have to say the food and service was great. We really enjoyed the duck starter and shared a chicken curry, chicken in honey and chilli which neither of us had had before but we both loved, fried rice and noodles. We also shared a bottle of rosè which was good too. The... More

Actually this is the best Chinese meal I've EVER eaten! Delicious Szechuan style stir fried vegetables with pork fried rice. Partner had wonderful chicken curry. Superb food, fantastic service - highly recommended!
