Chicken Satay starter bit tough but edible. Main course delivered completely wrong so sent back with the other correct main course. When the correct main course was delivered the original correct main course was returned cold. Manager berry apologetic but no other Action taken, not even a free drink. I have no idea why this establishment rates so high.

We went there last week. Good service, nothing wrong with food. It is a Chinese restaurant for westerners who tend to order chip and more chip with Chinese meal. It was ok, just not as authentic as some others.

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!

Visited here early evening on a Monday and the place was packed which is quite surprising to see a restaurant on a Monday buzzing. Had starters fried squid which was very good. Main meal I had was a variety of meats with Urdu noodles which was also very good. Reasonably priced and the only criticism I can make was the... More
