I try to get there at least twice a month. The tempura eggplant is fantastic! I haven't tried all the set diners but I will.

The food here is good. I had fish noodle soup and some egg plant tempura. No complaints about the food. The service was bad, so a mark off for that

Joy's was the first restaurant we tried in Luang Prabang. It's conveniently located near the Mekong River just off the main tourist street. We enjoyed our food — duck laab, Lao sausage, fried lemongrass chicken patties and a sautéed beef dish — the chicken patties were definitely the star of the meal.

After eating at a number of other places in town, though, we concluded that Joy's is not nearly as good as say, Cafe Toui, which served us one of the best meals we've had during our six weeks in Southeast Asia. Also, it was a bit dark and the service was...leisurely.

The food is wonderful and we plan on eating here everyday so we can explore more traditional lao dishes. The river weed is a must try if you like seaweed.This place is very reasonably priced, we had entree, two mains and two teas for 120 000 kip. I cant reccommend this place enough great homestyle lao food at its best.

Joy is a lovely lady and always up for a chat, we had some delicious food here, Spicy chicken coconut with rice, dish of the day, fried chicken and lemongrass balls and veggie spring rolls, not sure about the dipping sauce with the spring rolls though, a little watery but add soy sauce to them and tasted 100 times better, added 2 large 650ml bottles of local beer and it came to 165000 kip ( $27.50 Aussie )
