We need a good Chinese restaurant in Napa, I had hoped this was it. Our take out order included: Spring rolls- crispy and flaky but oily and tasteless Pot stickers- thick doughy blobs with a tasteless meatball inside. They apparently had been reheated because one side was scorched. Pork lo mein- modest amount of doughy noodles tossed with crispy vegetables... More

The Joy Luck House has been opened for a long time and from the looks it is time to upgrade. The service started off slow but then the owners started to help us and the service improved. The food is very standard and very much the same as served in most Chinese restaurants in the Bay Area. The portions were... More

The decor of the restaurant is very dated, but the food is pretty tasty and the prices are very reasonable. The Sesame Chicken and the Mongolian Lamb were very good.

Picked up dinner to go while vacationing in Napa with another couple. The food was so bad that we threw it away and went for some left over bread and cheese. The shrimp was not big enough to be classified as bait shrimp and the General Tsaos sauce we think was ketchup. I have never written a review before but... More

This is my favorite Chinese place in Napa. Reliable and steadfast, we've never been disappointed. The building is a little sloppy and needs a giant upgrade but don't let that deter you. The hot and sour soup is a very special experience. Whereas I have found most Chinese places in Napa have given up and lack passion the Joy Luck... More

I've eaten dinner here twice. Once was some years ago and then again about three weeks ago. The building stands alone. I was surprised to see maybe three cars in the parking lot at dinner time! We went inside and were greeted by the hostess and promptly seated. It seemed like we were the only people there dining! There are... More

A bit off the beaten path, Joy Luck House offers authentic Chinese food in reasonable portions at prices that are shockingly low compared to the rest of what the "Valley" has to offer. Although the interior is dated, and there seems never to be many people being served, the food is fresh and served hot and tasty. I live in... More

Last time we came here, there was one other table and we thought we came in on a slow night. We came in the other day, were greeted by two high school students that jumped up when we walked in the door and said "what do you need?". Seriously? We came to eat! They asked how many we had, we... More

...and consulted Trip Advisor. The two of us split the Shrimp with Honey Walnuts (really good), House Special (combo) Chow Mein, House Special Egg Foo Yung and a tall Tsingtao beer. Very good and a very nice Cantonese Chinese lady took care of us. Apparently, they have been awarded "Best Asian Food" by a couple of local radio stations, and... More
