    Go-to for Indian delivery

    This is our Indian delivery place. Some dishes do have a lot of oil (lamb vindaloo was tasty but had to have oil drained off), but chicken tikka masala is perfect, and their saag dishes are very tasty, too.

    Great if you want oil for dinner.

    I love Indian food and wanted to find a good spot in te neighborhood. My boyfriend was trying for first time. We ordered delivery which arrived very quickly. We ordered two chef specialties, lamb tikka masala and the chef veggie special. Both were not only bland and/or mushy, but they were SMOTHERED in oil. We are actually considering ordering from a different restaurant because mine is unedible. I'd rather wait longer for food that's cooked like someone loves what they do.

    Favorite Indian

    This is my absolute favorite Indian restaurant, and I have been to many. The service and the atmosphere may not be perfect but the food is so good that nothing else matters. They have the absolute best shaag ponir by far. The kurma, vindaloo, tikka masala, and makhanee are all wonderful as well. The paratha and naan are our favorite breads. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    not good

    the staff here are attentive, and they clearly aim to please (though I didn't appreciate being asked to review the place on yelp before I had even ordered). sadly, the food just isn't good. I am a huge fan of Indian food & have traveled a lot in India. I love eating in schmancy Indian places as well as taxi-driver holes in the wall. Seriously, the food at Joy is not good Indian food. I don't know why it gets the reviews it does. The sauces were underspiced (bland!), gloopy, and oversweet (sugar in my aloo?) The paratha was unrecognizable; it was literally crisp from sitting in so much oil or butter. The chutneys were from the grocery store. The dal was undercooked; the spinach was overcooked . . .

    Small and attentive

    This should be on your rotation of restaurants to eat out at. The owner of Joy, takes time to talk with you and will make you something special if you ask. It's terrific always. And the bollywood videos are an added treat.

    the best

    Compared to curry hill and indian row in manhattan and the other indian restaurants in brooklyn (yes, I've tried them all) this is the best since my days in india. Have the channa saag.

    decent food, offensive staff

    i rarely complain about service but my experience here on a recent weekend was so spectacularly bad that i feel compelled to say something. one of the waiters, an older gentleman, was lovely. the other, younger waiter rudely shouted demands at me all night, like "fork! knife!" when he wanted me to remove them off a plate he was about to take. when i asked him to box up the leftovers, he looked me in the eye and sneered: "you want to take that home?! that tiny amount?!" "yes," i said. "i want to have it for lunch tomorrow." (i don't know why i felt the need to explain myself.) he gave me a truly disgusted look then took the food away. none of this would have been enough to turn me off for good, but it gets worse. when it came time to pay, management inexplicably refused to let me use a gift certificate that had been purchased not even two weeks earlier. saying simply, "we don't take them anymore." it's a shame; i'm always looking for good indian in the neighborhood, and would have returned. i'll certainly never go back now.
