The Joy Inn is a Chinese restaurant located in the very heart of the city. Located in the quaint Dublin Road, it is close enough for urban residents to walk to and worth the drive for those located a bit further out. Expect this place to fill up just before and after popular shows at the cinema, since most people tend to pop in around these times due to the close proximity (and quality) of the establishment.
The staff are welcoming and inviting and so is the décor. It is stylish enough to bring friends and family, yet relaxed enough to be somewhere you’d pop in for a quick lunch. Perhaps the best thing about it is that there’s a lot of parking close by.
The restaurant doesn’t only serve Chinese dishes – there are a variety of European dishes available for those with a less adventurous palette.
If you are going to be visiting the restaurant on the weekends, expect it to be busy. It received rave reviews on Trip Advisor and since then, people have been flocking to it. It’s particularly popular with tourists, although the locals will usually recommend it to you too.
There are many Chinese restaurants in the city and this one has certainly stood its ground. Some people call it the best Chinese cuisine in Belfast, but this will likely depend on the type of dish you order – some are much better than others.
When it comes to pricing, this restaurant knows how to attract customers. A three course meal will set you back just under £10, which is impressive in the city, especially on a Sunday when the restaurant is likely to be jam packed. The portion sizes are relatively large, though not enormous. If you are going for the three course meal, you can expect to leave left-overs.
Once you visit the Joy Inn, it is very likely you will keep going back. This establishment already has a huge and very loyal customer base and this is likely to keep growing if they continue providing the same service they have provided in the past.
