Had the potstickers and the family dinner for seven.... great food and wonderful service. Large portions of all dishes served. Hot and sour soup was the best I have ever eaten.

This was our second time at Joyful. We eat early so got to Joyful a little after 5. We were seated in the same booth as our first visit several weeks ago. The decor was typical for a Chinese restaurant. It is clean and much larger than I would have guessed from it's location in a strip mall. The service... More

This is my go-to Chinese restaurant in Scottsdale. I've dined in a couple times now with family friends who first introduced me to the restaurant. Because I usually go with a large group, we are able to share and enjoy a variety of dishes. I have honestly liked every dish I have tried here, and that goes for ones that... More

When I lived in the area I would order take out for Joyful at least once a week. It got to the point where they would recognize my voice, they'd confirm I wanted 'the usual, and I'd pick up my order in 10 minutes. Great family run restaurant in central Scottsdale. Prices are fair and the food is quite good.... More

We liked our meals here. It wasn't excellent but it was good and it was reasonably priced. The servers here are so friendly and that made it a good experience. The portions were large so we had leftovers to take home. I did not like the corn soup or the house chicken but the servers are so nice that we... More

Disappointment hardly expresses it. Our dog was having surgery and Joyful was in the same center. I told my wife, " how bad can it be " That turned out to be more than a rhetorical question. Everything was either strange tasting or no taste. GO hungry before you go to Joyful.

Take-out, so cannot comment on dining in. Phoned ahead - ready quickly, with easy access and parking. Food was good for the price - not a "foodie" experience but fit the bill for those in the family looking for take out Chinese.
