House of Joy Chinese Rstrnt

Since now under new ownership and management this place just keeps getting better. The Hot and Sour Soup is fantastic. Family favorites are Imperial Shrimp and Sweet and Sour Pork or Chicken. The ""sweet"" tea has just a hint of jasmine and is sooooo good even my husband (who usually does NOT like flavored tea) drinks more than one glass. I have had three different wait-persons and all have been knowledgeable of the food and prompt and courteous in service. I eat in the restaurant or get take-away once a week--it is that good.

House of Joy!

August 1st will be the one year anniversary that Charles has taken over the ownership of House of Joy. If you haven't been there before or if you used to be a customer years ago be sure to make it one of your stops. The new owner used to work at the restuarant and is now the owner! What an improvement there has been. The food is wonderful and the hot and sour soup is the best in SA. He has improved the interior of the facility and it is first class. We enjoy going back there for lunch or dinner. Give it a try!

San Antonio's Best Chinese Food

The new management at House of Joy's attention to detail is second to none. He treats each customer special and comes by your table several times while you're there. The food is scrumptious, fresh, and tasty. Portion sizes are large and priced fairly. Check it out if you haven't visited lately.

Great Place to Eat!!

Great Food!!Great Service

I have been going to House of Joy since the middle 90's and the food and service has been very good for years. Recently went by and I notice a familiar face who now runs House of Joy. He has the place looking even better and according to him service will be taken to new heights. If you haven't been by lately stop and try it again. You won't be dissapointed with this local eatery!


Manual 891

Disappointed in the food considering the price service below average and waited long time for take out . Also the food was cold and giving me the wrong order.

Great To Go/Delivery

We order takeout from here regularly cuz it's in the neighborhood. Good food, good price, good proportions. Great choices on lunch combos. Haven't been disappointed in years. [It is obvious that the reviews listed here from 8/25/06, 10/06/06, and 11/03/06 are all the same person, and as that person didn't likely come back three times, s/he shouldn't be allowed three reviews. Never saw anybody spitting on the floor or sticking fingers in the food over the past eight years...and this place has been in business here a long time with continual repeat business.] Just sayin'.

Freakin Awesome!

House of Joy has absolutely the best chinese food in down. my mouth waters just thinking about the wonton soup. They have awesome deals and they give you a lot for your money. i go in al the time, so much that the waitresses already know what i want. haha they sit me and ask whoever is with me what they want because she already knows my order:) The little man in the front that yells a lot is very nice you just need to warm up to him. i thought he was rude at first but now my mind has changed you people are crazy.

The worst food and customer service

My family and I were eating here at lunch one day when the person next to us told the waitress the food was cold. as the waitress walked away with the food we witnessed her stick her finger in the rice to check as if her finger were a thermometer.
On this second occassion, we went for lunch and the food was cold. we sent it back and were treated rudely. when the food came back it had no flavor, the lady told us we had to use a sauce in order to add flavor. i told her i did not want it, she made a big scene adding that since i had ate the egg roll and ate the soup i would have to pay for it. i told her i didnt have a problem with that but that their customer service were very bad. she said she didnt care and that i just needed to pay. she made a very big scene for a little over 3 dollars. These owners are rude, their food sucks and has gotten worse as the years go by. I will never step foot in there again especially since I have witnessed first hand that they stick their fingers in the food. disgusting!

best chinese food in town

The food here is the best that I've had in San Antonio. Service is fast and the food is always ready for me to pick up. This place has been around for over 15 years, and there's a reason why they're still in business. I go ga-ga for the hot and sour soup. It takes some time to warm up to the manager, but he's a good guy.
