Stop in for an unlimited number of fruit smoothie and other interesting drinks under $5. Food is hit or miss, the menu is quite large, but there's pictures! So choose wisely and you might be very satisfied.

My wife and I really enjoy Joy Yee's. Great food, huge portions, what's not to love? Well the price is one thing. When I first started going to Joy Yee's it was quite affordable. However the price has quickly gone up to the point of saying "ouch" every time we visit. Back to the food though. The selection is amazingly... More

The food here is actually good, we've eaten here and carried out, and have never been disappointed. I'd give it a very good, except the interior of this place is rather jarring, brightly lit and painted, which for me lessens the experience. Also, you eat at long tables that are shared, not a biggie but it's different. The service has... More

Went there with a couple out of town guests who were taking their daughter for a tour of Northwestern. Thai/Chinese/Philipino/Korean. Most dishes are true to their origins. Nice Szechuan dishes, Korean bowls. Many Philipino dishes I have yet to try, and an awesome selection of bubble teas in the Taiwanese style. Reasonably priced, and plan on taking at least a... More

Visiting Chicago in July 2016 I had one thing in mind to seek out Joy Yee's where I had visited on my previous trip in 2010. Thankfully it was as good as I remembered from my 2010 experience. The service is always amazing they watch over your table without being intrusive and make you feel like you are the only... More

Wow - serious menu with a ton of options. If i could say 4.5 I would. The food was fresh and well prepared without being too greasy. Huge portions means that even if it seems pricey it isn't because you can share it or have another full meal later.

food is quite authentic and portions are very large, enough for two girls to share. service is nice and the bubble teas are absolutely amazing and the bubble tea menu selections are so huge it spans across two gigantic pages with pictures. place is clean.

Lots and lots of dished on the menu. However, there were many dishes that I wanted to order were not available. A lot of what they have on display at the window (food models), did not look like they were in their menu any more. I get this feeling that the quality is shifting.

This is a very casual, inexpensive, almost cafeteria-like restaurant. None of those things is a criticism - the place gets a 5 - because it excels at what it is. And I do mean excels - the consistent, speedy, quality of the enormous variety of dishes for the low price is dumbfounding. You can't get expensive restaurants to churn out... More
