The food here is the best Chinese in town. It's always fresh, steaming hot and delicious. I and my partner order takeout often enough that they know my order by heart! Chicken Chow Mein with fried rice, either Mongolian chicken or

Poor food quality. Cooking base - north China style- not Cantonese. You will fall sick by eating stale and salty food.

I visited this restaurant for the first time and ordered takeout. The Mongolian Chicken only half filled the carton, and the Saute Shredded Beef was mostly shredded peppers and onions with very small bits of beef. Egg rolls were old and mushy. The shrimp fried rice was mostly fried rice.

Big Joy is a favorite place of mine. I love their sizzling rice soup, egg rolls-which are the best around--Mongolian beef and pork fried rice. I have eaten here for years and everything I have had over that time has been delicious. The wait staff is fantastic! Your food comes out hot and quickly. They also deliver, which is great. They also have a buffet on Sundays. I would highly recommend going to that. It is cheap and there is a big variety of wonderful food.

Their combination platter is great and so is their fried rice. The egg rolls are really good and my husband says the pot stickers are wonderful too. They also offer delivery in certain areas, which is wonderful on a night when you just want to stay in. Delivery is always delivered nice and hot and fast. Reasonable prices too.

I travel throughout the US on a regular basis and have been fortunate enough to have sampled some really great chinese food. That said, on a scale of 1 to 5, I give this restaurant a 3 (compared to similar type chinese restaurants). It's clean, the staff are friendly and portions are extremely generous for the price. Specifically, my problem was with the particular dish I ordered (chicken in plum sauce, vegetable lo mein, fried dumplings, and fried rice). Maybe the cook was just having an off day but the rice and dumplings tasted a bit recycled and the chicken dish was palatable but nothing to write home about. However, I enjoyed the vegetable lo mein. The vegetables were crisp and tasty with just the right amount of sauce. Still can't get past the recycled rice and stickers though. I sincerely hope the owner reads these reviews and understands that most of us know when food is recycled (even covered in sauce). I think the restaurant has good potential if it focuses on ensuring only freshly cooked dishes are served. I will try again in a couple of months (everyone has an off day) in hopes that this was an isolated experience.

Know going in, this is a family owned eatery. Mom or one of the sons will greet you at the door as you walk in. If you are a couple you can get a quiet booth or a table, they are also suitable for a foursome. Larger groups can be accommodated at one of the various bigger tables. And if you are a really large group 10 or so, ask for the big table in the back, it has a lazy Susan so you can easily pass and share the dishes. They also have a separate room for even larger parties.
But the main reason to go is the food. If you don't know what to order ask Billy, he is the older son, tell him what you like and he will make suggestions. They season to taste...want something spicy but not to much, they will hold out some of those little red peppers. MSG a problem???...they can cook without.
Service is friendly and well paced but keep in mind this is relaxed dining. You want fast? Look somewhere else for a drive-through window. If you order the hot tea the mother keeps checking to make sure it stays hot and the little teapot stays full.
The decor is in keeping with ancestry but it isn't over the top. The kids, yes they are very family friendly, will get a kick out of the big fish tank and the Koi.
My wife and I eat there a lot and I get the feeling the family who owns the place eats there as well.
Personal favorites? I like the fried potstickers, my wife likes the veggie spring roll, also as an appetizer the hot and sour soup is great on a cool evening. Lover's shrimp is a good combo of hot & spicy and sweet & sour. Beef in plumb sauce is great...garlic chicken or cashew chicken is up near the top of the list and if you ask they will put cashew on the garlic chicken for a really cool taste.
In honesty I have never been disappointed in any meal there.

Try it , I think you'll like it.

While the outside of this restaurant looks very drab and slightly sketchy, don't be fooled. The inside is very nice and the food is wonderful. My friend ordered a wonderful orange chicken dish and the dish came out on a large and beautifully arranged platter. I ordered a spicy chicken and garlic dish that was wonderful. The veggies are fresh, the chicken is quality white meat, the entree selection is incredible, and the service was excellent. The ultra inexpensive house burgundy wine was rather nice with the spicy food. I can't wait to go back! In fact, I'm a major Chinese food fanatic and this is definitely at the top of my list now.

When I used Citysearch to lookup Big Joy I saw the bad review. As someone who hits this place up
for Chinese whenever I come back in town, I can say that the food is just as great as it has always been.
Rock out with some potstickers ( I go fried, but I can understand if you want them steamed and some Gen. Tso's beef....classic.

I've been eating here for 20 years. Always good with great variety of fresh selections. I'm still suprised every time I go at how good the food is and how reasonably priced.

Best Chinese in the city. Delivery is great, too. Nothing on the menu is weak. Used to be a big Golden Buddah fan, but now I'm firmly on the Big Joy team, a much fresher, tastier, and better value than any other place in the city.

Big Joy is the best in Atlanta. I usually get it delivered (arrives quickly everytime), but sometimes I dine at the restaurant itself: either way it is a winner. Always fresh, hot, and full of flavor, the staff at Big Joy never let me down. The Beef with Plum sauce, cashew chicken, and potstickers being my usual order.
