Joy Garden has a decent buffet of choices. Some items are better than others and they often have a special item that is a big hit. They do a good job of keeping the buffet stocked with every item. They have a good choice of decent desserts to end your meal. My favorites: cashew chicken, general tsao chicken, crab Rangoon,... More

We have been visiting Joy Garden for our Chinese take-out for years. The food is always hot and we never have a long wait. A gem in a small town.

The buffet was open at 11:30AM on Sunday and they generously provided me with to-go boxes to load up with their vast selection... More

Joy Garden is my "go to" restaurant in town. I love their food for take out and the buffet. My brother visited from Atlanta and thought the food was great. We eat there every week or two.

Buffet is small but kept fresh. They cook in small batches, but keep an eye on the supply of food. They make sure that the food is hot and fresh.

My husband and I tried Joy Garden last night and I have to say were quite impressed. The buffet is on the smaller side but the food is fresh, hot and delicious! We had the dinner buffet and waters and paid $15 and change. I thought this was very reasonable. The staff was nice and attentive. We will definitely be... More

My mom is in a care facility in Baldwin City KS and she requested food from Joy Garden. I don't Tried to call it in but the young man on the phone was kind enough to explain that just coming in and filling a plate from their buffet would be cheaper. I really appreciated this since I was only ordering... More

Baldwin City is a small collage town. The down town is old and very well kept. People are friendly and the locals know most everyone. The restaurant is old and small but the food is very good. They don't have as much food out as the larger Chinese restaurants do but what they do have is good. When you leave... More
