I laugh reading reviews from food snobs who claim this is not authentic Thai. It's probably not but that's because we are in Brooklyn - any Chinese food place is not even real Chinese. If you want the common version of Thai food in America it's great, and a super cheap fun date night. My fave is the spicy noodles.

this place has great food, service, and atmosphere. It's an excellent value and the turn around is super fast. My only complaint (warning) is that you can't count on delivery from Joya anymore. They still operate with a single phone line and no online orders, and it candle handle the volume of customers. I spent 22 minutes trying to get through on the phone only to get a busy signal every time. I finally gave up and ordered from somewhere else.

Ive been to Thailand twice, eaten at Pong Sri in the city, and dined at the superior Sri Praphai in Queens. How people can claim "This is the best Thai food ever" on this site when Joya is either their lone experience, or they've never even had real Thai food to compare it to is utterly irresponsible. The food at Joya is a safe slice of neutralized exotica for the unadventurous-at-heart with a sensitive palate. Ultimately, it's for the people of the last 10 years who -- thanks to the internet -- consider themselves as "foodies" (a term I find, ironically, distasteful). For those of us who actually know better, it's exceptionally mediocre.

The restaurant is beautiful. The waitress was friendly ( she knew nothing at all about food or beverages ) but she was nice. The prices were cheap by comparison to other Thai places. The social scene was hopping and the croud was active and loud. All good so far. The food was by far the poorest example of Thai cooking that I have ever eaten ( or attempted to eat ). How the other reviewers could find the pad-thai to be great or "the best Thai food in New York" Well it is just another example of a kitchen run by non cooks. A one time only.

This is a cool place to have dinner, with great quality of food and at amazing prices. Love the decor and the staff is very friendly. You can always count on having a wonderful meal here.

While the food is amazing and it's certainly a great value, it seems like they only have 1 phone line and have never heard of call waiting as you routinely have to try calling continuously, sometimes for half an hour or more, just to get through to place an order. When you do place an order, you are routinely put on hold for minutes at a time, after which they forget your order and information and ask you all over again. I recommend eating there, but if you want delivery, be ready to go through a process...
