We have been ordering take-out from Joyful House ever since they opened and have never been disappointed. The food is well-prepared, hot, and flavorful.

We order take out often and have found lately that the food has been cold and over cooked the last few times. The lemon chicken was so dried out and over cooked it should have been sold as jerky, this is our second experience with it being so over cooked you couldn't eat it. Our grandchildren love the Egg Drop... More

If you are looking for tasty food at reasonable prices with large portion sizes, then this is the place to come for Chinese food. It is a family operation and is not a place to bring a date if you are trying to impress them with fancy atmosphere. It appears that more than 1/2 of their business is take out.

The serving sizes were large and the food had good flavor. There were not many customers when we visited do the wait staff was very attentive. It looks like they do a much better carry out service but I've only dined in

We enjoy the sweet and sour chicken with fried rice and egg rolls here. We almost always do carry out, and is ready quick. Always good for many many years.

Good food but very small dining area making it a great place for takeout but not so good if you wish to dine-in. Skip the egg rolls but the main dishes provide enough food for two with leftovers for later.

I'm vegetarian and love their tofu dishes-- I prefer it here more than any other restaurant in the area.. My family also orders beef and chicken dishes regularly. We're always pleased with our orders!

They have a few tables so some people do eat here, but clearly it is 90% take-out. We get the take out, and the food is good. Like the title says, there is nothing wrong with the food, but there is nothing really good about it either. It is your average Chinese take-out. Yes, we get their food on occasion... More

I really enjoyed our take out! We got cold sesame noodles (appetizer), crab cheese (appetizer), fried shrimp (appetizer), General Tso chicken and Cashew Chicken...for $46. Okay, that was a little more than I'm used to spending on take out, but with the exception of the sesame noodles (too thick and overpowering), everything was delicious. The service was super-fast. I called... More

The better of the Chinese restaurant in saline. Pick up lunch from there often. Usually get shrimp Lo mein, chicken fried rice, general tso, egg rolls and/or crab rangoons. All are really good.
