Ordered takeaway. Staff were lovely and the food was very tasty and on time. Unfortunately no gluten-free options that we could see, but would definitely go there again!

Wonderful food - many great choices, and plentiful. A lovely restaurant and as its fairly small, we found it to be quiet and intimate. Friendly helpful staff. If you like good Thai food you will love Joy Thai.
