I just had the most bizare experience – I just had the strangest experience... I have eaten lots of times at Joy Noodles and have always had a great experience... and paid with a credit card. Tonight I brought friends in for a bite, told them how great it was... and it was, everything we ordered was good, service was the best... TO A POINT!!!! WTF???? We came with only a credit card, I have never paid with anything other than a credit card, because we sat at one table and not one more to the south we had to pay with cash. The waiter did not let us know that, (there is a sign inside). After much discussion and a rude altercation with the owner we did come up with enough for the ticket however only after the owner called the police because we were stealing from him. ABSOLUTELY horrible experience. I can not believe I was treated this way by a restaurant that I frequent, that is in my neighborhood and that I brought people into to introduce them to it.
Joy Noodles... F@*k You!!!!!!
Amazing Thai food – Great atmosphere, Great food, Great service, and i Love Thai Ice Tea. ^_^. Best Thai food in all Chicago
Fun and Reliable – A great place to go with friends on a weeknight. Take a couple bottles of wine and enjoy the consistently good, although basic dishes. The food is standard Thai fare, but is well done with generous portions - a great value. Service is friendly and there are certainly sure to be some characters to enjoy in this Boystown favorite. A fun place for friends, but I wouldn?t recommend it for a date or a romantic experience.
Yummy Food – The food and service here is great. Joy's can get busy at peak meal times. Great people watching too.
best thai in chicago – joy's is probably the best thai place north of downtown. Their food is outstanding---flavorful and very generous portions. Their noodles are fantastic as are their curry dishes. Their prices are very reasonable for the amount and quality of food. Their delivery service is prompt and friendly (and you can order online!) I can't say anything negative about this place.
excellent food! – excellent food, was seated promptly, comfortable atmosphere, highly recommended, need to say more?
Great food. Great prices. – I loved this restaurant so much ... my waistline grew to match. Food is great and is affordable for any budget.
Great Beef Salad – Love the Beef Salad! But the bubble teas are not that great, the tapiocas are clumped together.
We always order delivery to work and we all smell like onions and garlic...yummm-o!
Great all around – Discovered this place when I was new to the neighborhood & it has remained a favorite. Cheap, great portion size, delicious. Even if you don't "know" Thai food, you're likely to find something you like on the menu. The free appetizers with lunches during the week are always fresh & delicious. I love the Pad Thai, Phuket Noodles, the curries... I could go on & on. The service is always speedy & the waiters never balk if you ask that something be left out or added to your dish.
What can't I say? – Joy's is a place that will leave a lasting impression and leave you wanting to come back time and time again. Their food is always fresh, flavorful, inexpensive and you will almost always go home with leftovers! I can honestly say that my friends and I count down the days until we go to Joy's next and know that we are getting some of, if not the best Thai food in town. We are huge fans of the newly redone menu, which now features appetizers such as crab rangoon(the best I've ever had) and old favorites like Pad Thai and Fried Rice. Kudos to the staff who are professional and by far the best around. Take out is fast and is always the same quality as when you dine in. Joy's had made it's staple in Lakeview that we hope never disappears.
