Was in the area again so just had to visit Joy as the previous time was awesome. Brought a few people from work and everyone left saying how good it was. Every course was well flavoured with perfect depth and cooked to perfection. I recommend the king prawn puree, garlic chilli chicken and a peshwari naan

Been 3 or 4 times now, and every time the food has been fantastic. Good selection of drinks, nice clean beer on draught, and great service, even when busy. With so many Indian restaurants around, this place definitely stands out above the crowd.

The nibbles and drinks were prompt but after that it took ages to get our order and another age for the food to arrive. This seemed to be more a delay int eh kitchen... More

The special curries at Joy are just delicious! So tasty and fresh! Not only is the service incredible but the decor is also very calming and modern. It's quite atmospheric even when it's not full! Imho their onion bhajis need to come up to Agra standard but on the whole everything was very very good! Always pleased with my choice... More

If a waiter takes your contactless credit card away from your table and out of your sight as a customer you have every right to feel uncomfortable and to ask why. When this happened at Joy, the waiter was incredibly rude. The reason he gave was he wanted to work out how to divide the bill. There was 2 of... More

After a day at the races (Sandown Park) we ended up in the Joy Curry House and good it was too. The food was tasty, the service was quick, the ambiance was pleasant and the price was very reasonable. If you want a curry in Surbiton, go to Joy.

Visited with golfing friends to arrange our next event over a curry - team is well versed in good service and are attending rice to the table. We ordered typical fare and the food was reliable and well cooked- nans are fluffy and freshly cooked- sizzling jalfezi was also a hit with ample and large pieces of well cooked chicken... More

After reading a few reviews on here I thought I would make the effort and add my option. “JOY” previously “The Curry House” Ashtead, had a tough act to follow, after taking over the business, from the previous owner who retired. Since then I visited the restaurant occasionally, but more recently on a regular basic. The first thing that always... More
