We went for a family meal on Easter Sunday having been there years before and had heard recent good reports. The decor, although nice now seems slightly tired as it does not seemed to have changed in years.

We were slightly surprised that we where seated next to the only other occupied table at that time. Most of the staff seemed very pleasant although one waitress seemed to be having an "off day" as she never smiled, got our order wrong and claimed they had no Barcadi although it could be seen clearly on the bar. The food was nice but had a very limited selection for lunchtime.

When we were served the dishes it seemed to be at random and a number of us were waiting for our order while others of the party had almost finished theirs. What was also not made clear was although it was an all inclusive buffet it did not include a dessert of any kind.

All in all it was a pleasant meal but it could have been so much better and if they are not careful they will lose out to the Izumi restaurant at Warley which although self service is brighter, has a larger selection of food (including desserts)and is £4.00 cheaper.

I booked a party of 20 to Joy fook for my son's 18th birthday and with regret I wish I had'nt. The restaurent was shabby and dirty. Carpets were dirty,it looked like it hadnt been hoovered for a month and they were joined together with plastic tape. Lampshades ripped and stained, toilets were filthy.
Food was average, service was a joke, constantly having to wait ages for our drink orders. The worse part of our experience was requesting to take our food home, there was so many dishes paid for that were untouched so I asked the waiter could we possibly take it home. The waiter came over with our food slopped all together in the bottom of a carrier bag, gravey leaking through, prawns swimmimg around rice mixed with alsorts, it looked like vomit. It was the worse experience and I will certainly never return, waste of money and time.

 

Buffet is excellent!

I used to visit Joy Fook on a regular basis and hadn't been for a while. Went back recently and they've had quite a few lovely changes to the place. The new garden area is a wonderful addition and is great during the evening, especially now in the summer. They've this new buffet system where you order food from the table, so it doesn't feel like a buffet in a sense, but it's unlimited food for a very good value price for an evening meal! The food was very well presented and tasty!

I'll definitely be coming back soon!

 

Great

I really like this restaurant and have been there for a few big occassions i went there recently for my 21st birthday with a group of 25 on a saturday night when they have the set menus and disco, and have been to the disco nights on a few occassions before...The food is always delicious and the drinks are reasonable. I like that you can pay as you drink so that they are not continuously topping up your glass without you looking like other restaurants.

The service was very good and very quick considering it was so busy and that there were so many of us. We were not rushed and were given plenty of food with lots to choose from!

Id recommend it to anyone although the location is a bit difficult and it is very dark you would definately have to get a cab even if you live close by as you cant walk down the pitch black lanes!

Cant wait to go back for the next celebration!!!

 

value for money and great choice
