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.

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

Thai is about the most popular Asian restaurant in Evanston. The food menu is extensive and good bubble drinks. The food has nice presentations and large portion, very good for the college students and family meal. The taste is ok, but the variety of the food choices made us come back again and again.

Wide selection of Asian meals and smoothies/bubble teas. I got the jackfruit drink and it was awesome. Food is really good ad value.

This is absolutely the best Chinese food in Evanston area. The service is super fast, friendly and the food you get is overly-portioned. There was nothing we did not find tasty. Everything looks delicious when brought to the table. This is a hot spot and sometimes can be crowded, which I find as a great sign for fabulous food. Must... More
