Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Really nice authentic south east Asian food. We had a selection of Thai, Vietnamese and Malaysian food - all very nice. Only small criticism is to include a dip with the dumplings - other than that 10/10.More

I spent a lot of time working in the Netherlands and acquired a taste for SE Asian food which is quite limited in London apart from a couple of restaurants in town. So I was delighted when Joy Kitchen opened locally. The food is excellent,...the owners and staff very welcoming and friendly and they have survived lockdown etc. which is a measure of their quality. I always notice the number of Asian people dining there which is always a good indicator. For anyone who likes this type of food I would thoroughly recommend a visit.More

The first server was very polite, however the food was disgusting. I was given my cutlery, a spoon and a fork (no knife), the fork had dried food on it so I asked for another one which I was given. For my starter I ordered...roti which had red curry sauce on the side. The roti was supposed to have a buttery taste which it didn’t but it was dripping in grease and the sauce didn’t taste fresh. My main was green prawn Thai curry, on the menu it had 2 chillies beside it. Having arrived the sauce was very runny and just tasted like a vegetable sauce, it was very bland and there wasn’t a hint of spice to it. I asked the server if I could have some chilli flakes which she brought to me but the amount was very little so I asked for some more which she kindly gave to me. However, even with the chilli flakes added the meal was disgusting so I ate the prawns and left the rest. My original server was no longer there so I spoke to another member of staff, who it turns out was a member of the family and doesn’t normally serve. I asked her for the bill and she returned with the PDQ machine. She asked how my meal was and I advised her that I’d cooked better green curries myself and had more superior meals in other restaurants. . I told her that there was no spice in the meal and she said customers complain that it is too spicy (so I guess they’ve taken out the spice). Why have 2 chillies beside the meal on the menu if there is no spice, that is false advertising! Her attitude towards me was appalling when I told her the meal was disgusting. She also had to have 4 attempts to give me a full card receipt. The first 3 just had 2 lines of text on it, she didn’t know how to use the machine. The paper was close to running out, so she said I could have the till receipt. I explained again to her that I wanted the PDQ receipt and she went off in a huff screwing her face at me. She was extremely rude towards me, laughing and smirking all the time and even said oh my god to me. I paid the bill in full but considering the food and service I was expecting a discount. All I can say is if you want a disgusting meal and service then go to this place. I am totally disappointed.More

Joy Kitchen is our favourite restaurant in Orpington. We go there often. We went on Monday this week ( a bonus that it opens on Mondays as several restaurants in Orpington are closed). It was fairly busy with a mixture of couples, families and solo...diners. There is a very nice low key atmosphere. You are never rushed. Joshua was the waiter on Monday and he was very friendly and welcoming and made sure everyone was served well and looked after. Our favourite meal there is salt and pepper ribs, Green Thai chicken curry and a separate dish such as Singapore noodles or Pad Thai which we share between the two of us. For desert we also share the banana fritters and ice cream. Perfect! The food is freshly cooked and always delicious. There is a choice of draught beers and my favourite wine is the blush Pinot Grigio. All in all, a lovely restaurant.. I can’t fault it!More
