Our waiter was great-- polite, friendly, and attentive. He was great. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing. Dumplings were awful, heavy, undercooked, off tasting. We had a noodle dish that was flavorless and lacking texture and vegetables. We had a bok choi plate that was great,...More

Our food was great. I had the pad Thai and had plenty for lunch the next day. The crab rangoons are the best in central to northern Vermont that I've had, and I try them everywhere that has them. The waitress was cordial and helped...More

This restaurant is perfect for couples - intimate seating, and not too crowded. The service is excellent! You can really see the attention to detail - our server knew where we were at in our meal at all times and was ready with refills almost...More

Wonderful authentic cuisine. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Always a treat to see Joyce, the owner... she's there most nights and will greet people as they come in.

It was a busy night for a tuesday, but the server had it under control! We had the best General Taos meal and Beef and Broccoli. I loved the Fried rice, not over done or dry and just the right amount of soy sauce. I...More

To be fair, we picked a very busy time for dinner at Joyce's on a Friday night. The kitchen was backed up and it took quite a while to get our food. I would recommend take out rather than eat in. The room was loud...More

Joyce's is our "go to" place for a quick dinner out when we're too hot and tired to cook at home--like tonight. Best vegetable spring rolls I've ever had. The Beef with Broccoli is consistently good. This time I decided to try something different, so...More
