I went to there with my family by chance. That was my lucky time. I've never eaten excellent Korean food in Ottawa. Also, the server had nice service. I suggest anybody to go there not worry about that.

I've lived in the city for over 10 years and now visit Joy regularly. The menu is full of options ranging from Korean dinner entrees to Japanese bento boxes and other sushi combos. But the reason I go back there is always for the Joy...More

Friendly service, yummy food, and a wonderful atmosphere. It was a bit quiet, but that was nice. The seat by the window is probably the best seat in the house. We were lucky to get it and it was a wonderful dinner.

This quaint little restaurant is so cute! Great food! Wonderful presentation. I went there in Feb. 2010 actually (not June 2010, but Tripadvisor wouldn'T let me go back that far). Lovely decor, great ambiance. Service was ok, but not super fast. Great date restaurant!

This place was ok but a little disappointing. Their sushi was decent but they didn't have any good party trays, their smallest one had mostly rolls, including one with cream cheese in it (yuk). RIce was flavourful but a little hard. Their tempura was flavourful...More

This little gem is a Korean/Japanese fusion restaurant. They have great sushi, bibm balp, and bulgogi. My favourite restaurant in Ottawa
