Joyce's Noodle House is standard Asian cuisine (fried chicken fingers, wonton soup, moo goo gai pan,) but it is exceptionally fresh. The veggies are always wonderful. They also have bubble teas and a bar (if you want an exotic beverage.) The wait staff are always friendly and very efficient.

We brought our family here for our daughter's birthday. There were ten of us, and the service was great. Portions are large, delicious, and hot. It wasn't over crowded and we did not feel rushed. The shrimp was quite large, too. We will visit again!

Joyce's is consistently good, though not gourmet Chinese. Most of the sauces taste pretty much the same, but are always good. The waiter we had, an older gentleman, was not as friendly as the young waitstaff at Joyce's, or Joyce herself. He was a bit terse, and the food did not all come out at the same time.

I ordered a dish that comes with rice but I prefer noodles and they wouldn't do it I offered to pay extra. What part of Noodle house am I not getting? I'm giving a poor instead of terrible since I have heard many people say they like it.

I love eating at this restaurant or for take out. The vegetable taste fresh & delicious in their meals and they have great egg rolls. Love the duck sauce with it. Not many Chinese restaurants are this good!

This is a basic Chinese restaurant with a fancy name. Nothing too exciting or extraordinary. Chinese food is alright.

My Chinese friends dine here. Our whole family loves Joyce's. Order the garlic eggplant or the meat tofu. Both are outstanding. Good choice for the entire family.

We were 5 adults and 2 kids. EVERYONE had a terrific meal. We ordered all kinds of different items from the very varied menu (e.g. orange-flavored chicken, grilled chicken teriyaki, wonton soups, Kung Pao baby shrimp with peanuts, beef with broccoli) and everything was delicious. Prices are most reasonable. A great place for Asian cuisine.

I ate here last summer (2011). This is a casual restaurant with lots of Asian-themed choices. The service was excellent --- the owner was super accommodating, and did everything to ensure my dining experience was satisfactory, including stopping by the table personally to check and to chat. I definitely recommend this restaurant. I will be back!

We have lived in the Essex Junction area for 6 years and Joyce's is by far our families favorite place to eat! For a family of 4 with 9 and 11 year olds it speaks volumes about their food when all of us want to eat there! You can ask them to make something more spicey which my husband loves... More
