Furnishing pleasant and restaurant clean with adequate toilets. There seemed to be a... More

We have ordered from Joi Restaurant a couple of times in the last few months and they never fail to disappoint. The food is always of great quality with the Tikka Masala being particularly good. Haven't eaten in house but I would imagine it is just as great.
