Joy’s Cafe has been around for many years and has built up a good reputation among locals and tourists with their home style cooking and friendly staff. It is the sort of place where once you have been there, you will keep going back. Their meals are excellent, cheap and huge serves. I love the breakfasts here, eggs are always... More

We stayed at the Nap hotel so were only a short stroll from Joys cafe. After giving it a try one night I was back a few times day and night as the food was great, I tried lots of different Thai dishes and they were all good. My wife tried other things like chilli, pizza etc. and she was... More

As this is not my first visit to Joy's, I can only confirm that the level of service and the food quality is still at a very good level. We stayed here for a few days in their guest rooms and ate several dishes during this stay. The quality of the food is impeccable and all the staff do their... More

I last stayed here 12 years ago and it has hardly changed. The food is great in the downstairs restaurant and the guest house is very homely with large rooms and comfy beds. Great value and 200m from the quiet end of the beach. Bangla Road is a 10 minute walk away. Everything is available near by and the friendly... More

Having moved out of Patong many years ago, I visited again when a friend suggested going there for Thanksgiving Dinner. The buffet dinner was excellent, and I plan go there again next year if I'm in town. Many years ago we used to go there for breakfast, which I also plan to do again the next time I'm in Patong.

Ate at Joy's Cafe nearly every night when we stayed at BYD Lofts at Patong Beach. Main course is generous enough to share, ask for individual portions of rice. Very friendly owners and lovely food. Highly recommended.

Saw the Kawasaki KSR out front and rented it for a day. It's the owner's bike so he's put a little bit of extra work into it. It sounds awesome and price for rental was reasonable. I hope he buys more in the future 'cause he only had one at the time. There's a few speed humps on the street... More
