After a day at the races (Sandown Park) we ended up in the Joy Curry House and good it was too. The food was tasty, the service was quick, the ambiance was pleasant and the price was very reasonable. If you want a curry in Surbiton, go to Joy.

Visited with golfing friends to arrange our next event over a curry - team is well versed in good service and are attending rice to the table. We ordered typical fare and the food was reliable and well cooked- nans are fluffy and freshly cooked- sizzling jalfezi was also a hit with ample and large pieces of well cooked chicken... More

After reading a few reviews on here I thought I would make the effort and add my option. “JOY” previously “The Curry House” Ashtead, had a tough act to follow, after taking over the business, from the previous owner who retired. Since then I visited the restaurant occasionally, but more recently on a regular basic. The first thing that always... More

The last time I went to Joy was about three years ago. While the food was good, the atmosphere was frigid, austere, even antiseptic. Staff were rather formal. Courteous, but not relaxed. Things have improved. We went last week with another couple, and were heartened to find improved food (it really is superb at present - maybe there's a new... More

Visited here whilst working down in London as recommended by staff. This was one of the best Indian meals I've ever had. The king prawn puri and garlic chilli chicken were cooked and flavoured to perfection. The peshwari naan although was small but equally as good and did the job without any waste.

Traditional Friday night evening out with the boys. We ended up with a curry at this restaurant. It was fine and everything was nice and tasty. Not the best curry around though. Service was pleasant enough. There was nothing wrong but I wasn't wowed either.

I am lucky enough to live in the Chessington,Tolworth and Surbiton triangle, which may not be Brick Lane or the Curry mile, but nevertheless hosts some fine restaurants representing the Sub-Continent. Friday's choice was Joy of Surbiton, which is on our favourites rota. Good welcome from the 'Maitre', and service just slow enough to sip a wine, and for you... More

The food here was great, I had a balti which is meant to be served in a balti dish but wasn't. In terms of service it was ok, we did feel a bit rushed at times. The restaurant itself I thought was a bit too bright.

Great food usually a bit unusual twist on the menu. Nice staff and worth coming again. Very very fun

I love Indian food but hated it here. A group of six of us thought we would try this place as we have been going to the red rose for thirty years and wanted to try something new. We all ordered different dishes - unfortunately they got my order wrong but brought it out to me 5 minutes later. None... More
