My wife and I love Indian food. We've tried a lot of places in and around the Park Slope area, as well as several in Manhattan.

We have now more or less permanently settled on Joy, because of the consistently good food, and the friendly,

Vegetarians beware! This restaurant serves bland, bland, bland veggie dishes. they also used left-over sauce from my friend's dish to cook mine. It's just wrong.

Ordered take out as usual, but found a big rolly-polly in my Shaag Ponir which made my stomach turn. Enough said.

I dont know how anyone could say that Joy is as good as, or even close to as good as English Indian food. After spending the last 4 months in England, and developing the habit of having Indian at *least* once a week, I needed to satisfy my craving for some curry and nan in Brooklyn. I went to Joy hoping to find some great Indian, but unfotunately found curry that was no better than average. The paratha was an exception, very flakey and recommended, and the service was friendly, but for anyone who has had good Indian in the past (especially in England), you will probably be disappointed with the mediocre and gritty curry.

I lived in London for over a decade and when I moved to Prospect Heights, I was dismayed that no good Indian restaurants existedf here until my husband and I stumbled upon this modest GEM! I love the quail appetizer, lamb madras and chicken koorma. YOIu can get a fantastic meal for two for under $30 and if you byob you can truly live it up. We bring our friends from the UK to this place whenever they come statesidfe and all agree it is as good as what we can get in Southall.

This place is amazing. The decor is not the greatest in the world, but the food is phenomenal. Their tandoori dinner for two is a phenomenal deal for less than 30 bucks. My boyfriend and I have very healthy appetites and we still have leftovers for lunch. The chicken melts in your mouth, even when delivered.

Some of the best indian i;ve had in new york, and definitely in brooklyn. Great food, prices, service. Nothing I've tried I havent like, but am addicted to the tikka masala, garlic naan, chana saag. Bring your own wine too (which i see as a A+)!

An Indian restaurant in Park Slope that knows that Vindaloo is supposed to be spicy! This place is a good value with good food. My husband loves vindaloo, but is vegetarian, so they make chana vindaloo that he swears by. I've had most of the veg dishes - all good. The samosas chana chaat and naan are good. The only time I was disappointed was with a makhani dish I ordered that was very sweet and once I ordered jalfrazee that I found greasy.Service is good. If you don't order an appetizer or dessert they'll often bring you a little taste of something free. The only thing is you will usually have to catch your waiter to get your check...they don't tend to bring it until you ask. But, on the bright side - you will never feel rushed even when they are packed.

Pros: food with taste!, accomodating

Cons: ambiance is lacking, on street parking

Park Slope has needed a really good indian place for a LONG time, and finally, this is it! My husband and I go there probably once a week -- he usally gets the Chicken Tikka and I get the Chana Shaag. Other dishes we've tried and which are fantactic: Chana Aloo, Mixed Vegetable Curry, Chana Chaat, Grilled Meat Appetizer, and of course Naan bread, and rice pudding or some jasmine ice cream for dessert. Delicious! The service is wonderful and the interior has the classic tacky lighting scheme that has gone to be standard in NYC indian restaurants. Perfect!

This place is wonderful. I don't think they've been around that long, as I only noticed them a few months ago. The service is pretty decent. The waiters are friendly as is the owner who is often there. The chicken tikka makhani is delicious. The saag paneer is a bit creamy for my tastes, but still good. And the lamb madras is good and spicy. The portions are not huge, but they are satisfying.

If you order delivery or sit in, they often bring you a taste of desert for free. Quite nice. I highly recommend it!
