I grew up in Southfield, MI which back in the day had the finest Chinese restaurants around. My standards are very high regarding Chinese food, and Joyful House is excellent. Our two favorite dishes are the Hunan Beef (for spicy option), and Triple Delight (for...More

The restaurant is very small; tight quarters. Service was good and prompt. Food was average. Our two dishes were good, but not great. Both dishes should have had more rice. The Egg Drop soup was very yellow, food coloring? We may be back again; but...More

We have been ordering take-out from Joyful House ever since they opened and have never been disappointed. The food is well-prepared, hot, and flavorful.

The serving sizes were large and the food had good flavor. There were not many customers when we visited do the wait staff was very attentive. It looks like they do a much better carry out service but I've only dined in

We enjoy the sweet and sour chicken with fried rice and egg rolls here. We almost always do carry out, and is ready quick. Always good for many many years.

Good food but very small dining area making it a great place for takeout but not so good if you wish to dine-in. Skip the egg rolls but the main dishes provide enough food for two with leftovers for later.

I'm vegetarian and love their tofu dishes-- I prefer it here more than any other restaurant in the area.. My family also orders beef and chicken dishes regularly. We're always pleased with our orders!

They have a few tables so some people do eat here, but clearly it is 90% take-out. We get the take out, and the food is good. Like the title says, there is nothing wrong with the food, but there is nothing really good about...More
