We have been patronizing JOY YEE since they opened, their meals are still very good but we will be searching for a new source for smoothies. Had a Pineapple Coconut and it was worst one I ever had. Watery and tasteless and no fresh fruit....More

One of the busier restaurants in Chicago's Chinatown. Simple seating and atmosphere but that's where simplicity ends. Parking is a pain, public transportation is highly recommended. Although their food is tasty and well made, you need a good 10 minutes to go through the entire...More

As soon as we walked up, I was overwhelmed by all the different choices to choose from. I really liked the concept and the beverage, but my favorite was the packaging. I wouldn't buy one again unless someone helped me with ordering.

We had a delicious lunch with only a short wait, very busy, but efficient. The menu is very big, and it took a bit of time to go through. Everything we ordered was hot and very good. There is also a very extensive list of...More

We just have beverages at this place: bubble tea and smoothies from the take out window. I tried the milk bubble tea, just because I heard it was good, having no clue what the "bubbles" were. Well, I soon found out they look like blueberries...More

I loved the smoothie that I got there. It was fresh and it looked delicious. I got a strawberry smoothie with strawberry bobo balls. It was absolutely, hands down, the best smoothie I have ever had!

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
