Best hot and sour soup I can remember and the meal did not go downhill. I ordered Szechwan beef in black pepper sauce. Very interesting for my first impression was that it was under seasoned. I just had to give the after flavors time to...More

Beautiful views of the Connecticut River. Went for the buffet. We did not order as not many people in restaurant and buffet looked dried out. Ordered shrimp and asparagus special. It came with white rice. Light brown sauce. Asparagus was chopped up, tough lower part...More

Just has not aged well. Prices have gone up but quality and service has gone down. Out dated for the prices you pay. Shame.

Always good service & large portions, more than not taking home a doggie box for a 2nd meal. View is also outstanding, over-looking the CT River, esp. if you're seated on the enclosed porch. Had an eagle fly right by us once.

We've been visiting Joy Wah for many years. I understand they recently changed ownership. Basically it a good stop yet needs some attention. The meat dishes are as good as ever but the noodle dishes were cool. All in all we enjoyed our stop and...More

Our family has been going to Joy Wah for years. While this was not a Chinatown ("let me show you the eel before we cook it") quality restaurant, the food was always very, very good. This was a great neighborhood place to take the whole...More

There were large portions but I would say the food was average. The location/view are amazing!
