Had a family meal on a quiet Saturday night, we were immediately asked what drinks we wanted before we had even removed our coats and all sat down, the waiter, an older man (never seen him there before, didn't smile once) kept hovering around us, which made us feel uncomfortable, we were actually made to feel like we were a...

We have ordered from Joi Restaurant a couple of times in the last few months and they never fail to disappoint. The food is always of great quality with the Tikka Masala being particularly good. Haven't eaten in house but I would imagine it is just as great.

Food very good, diet coke flat and the red wine a medium no dry ones on offer. Waiter was a bit to enthusiast, kept on coming back to chat to us which we didnt want. Heard most of his life story!

Visited with some friends one evening - the banquet is fantastic value for money! Staff we're rude, I was told to hurry up with choosing what I wanted to order as they was in a hurry which I thought was very rude, very slow service took over half an hour just to get our starter, tiny glasses of drinks so...

We usually get a takeaway but decided we was going with friends so would eat in. Can't fault the food always lovely, portions are good sizes and the price is great! I just feel it's let down because the staff (the men) never seem to be smiling! It makes you feel a little uncomfortable that you make an effort with... More

Having avoided the Joi for several years, following a poor experience, we returned for a Sunday night meal. The decor hasn't changed much and the tables are a little cramped but it was a bit brighter than I remember. No banquet night, despite the advertising, so we ordered off the menu. The food was better than before, much less greasy... More

We regularly get take always from this restaurant. The staff now us my sight and often recognise our voices on the phones. They are very friendly, will have a joke with us and are always polite.

Recommend the Banquet option. 5 courses of your choice for less than £12! Food is delicious and they have lots of options. The vegetable side dishes are full of flavour too. I would recommend the aubergines and sag paner. The King Prawn Puree as a starter is absolutely fantastic - worth the extra £2 for being a seafood dish.
