Joy Yee was one of our favourite restaurants during our time there. I must have visited this place or ordered from it around 8 times during the 3 weeks I was in Chicago. This place has great food and some of the best boba tea...More

It's hard to get shabu shabu as good as what I had when I lived in Japan but Joy Yee hit the spot! The portions were huge, the veggies were fresh and the prices were excellent! Only $25 for the two of us and we...More

Had high hopes for Chitown Chinatown food (having lived out and visited SF Bay Area)...and a lot of locals recommended Joy See's. Kind of a let down taste wise for many of the dishes. I'd skip this place for the food, just get the drinks.

We have been patronizing JOY YEE since they opened, their meals are still very good but we will be searching for a new source for smoothies. Had a Pineapple Coconut and it was worst one I ever had. Watery and tasteless and no fresh fruit....More

One of the busier restaurants in Chicago's Chinatown. Simple seating and atmosphere but that's where simplicity ends. Parking is a pain, public transportation is highly recommended. Although their food is tasty and well made, you need a good 10 minutes to go through the entire...More

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
