The food from Joy Garden is consistently good; it tastes great, their fried rice is delicious, and while I'm not big on shrimp, I have to say that they make it tasty. The owners/staff are polite and accommodating. Sometimes people forget that we're all human, but generally speaking, the food from Joy Garden is good. I would and do recommend it to friends.

What does it take for this place to get an order correct? Its a real pain in the ass you pick up your order every things piled and packed in a bag so you take there word for it that it is correct. But of course its not. The hell of it they even marked it on the order correct but gave you the wrong food and of course I ordered beef and got pork. Well better revenue for them. Probable intentional knowing you most likely aren't gonna pack it back up and go all the back there. This isn't the first time either I do believe it will be the last tho.

I love joy garden and the food. The service is just as any other place here in town. I love the fact that they deliver because not allplaces will.

Joy Garden has the worst customer service I have ever experienced! They forgot our order. When we called, they said five minuets more. One hr later we called again! And they hung up on us! After 2 and a half hrs later they showed up. A normal place would have given us the food for free! Or, they would be sorry! Or give a discount! But no! They just got mad and took the food back to the store! I never want to order from them again! It doesn't matter if the food is good or bad. No food is worth the amount of trouble and stomach pains Joy Garden employees and owners give you! They need to learn how to interact with people if they want to continue to receive business! I have never known such rude horrible people that run a business!

The people who say the service is rude are completely wrong. Keep in mind, the majority of denizens in Galesburg act stuck up and slightly racist to the workers. I have seen customers blatantly mock them for their asian heritage and its appalling. <br /> <br /> The food is great. And if you show respect, you'll get it in return.

as much i do order from this place it pisses me off.. they are rude and very short with u.. they show no respect and seem to want to rush and talk over you. I had to tell the lady that answered the phone to stop talking long enough for me to place an order... when i had picked a number off the lunch menu ( didnt realize that it was lunch) she procedeed to tell me 7 times that this is not lunchtime..... no kidding!!! ughhhh ... i love the food but the people that work there are the rudest i have ever delt with.. this is coming from someone who has worked my entire life in the food industry.

This place has horrible attitude. They do not deliver in the time that they say they would and they still charge you. These people mean people and do not deserve your time nor money. There are better places in Galesburg that know how to treat a customer.

These people need to learn how to be respectful on the phone. This is the rudest place to eat in Galesburg. They need to learn how to treat their customers way better.

Dude. Let me tell you a little story about Joy Garden. They. Have. Stuff. And that stuff makes other stuff obsolete. It's like you're riding on a bus and you smell the seat next to you. What does it smell like? Does it smell like Joy Garden? No. It smells like the warm butt of whoever sat there last. And you think to yourself, "I don't wanna have this terrible mud-butt up my nose all day, I need a little MSG mixed with this bus butt seat. So, you enter the garden of joy and you smell. What do you smell? Love. Pure and simple. love. And then you get wierd again and start sniffing the seats in the resaurant and the owners get angey ang kick you out. Without even tasting the food. THAT is how good the Joy Garden is.

While the food isn't horrible and you get a decent amount for the price you pay, the customer service is terrible! We placed a delivery order over the phone, to which we were told our order could not be delivered for at least an hour. An hour and a half later, we were still waiting for our food. When we called the restaurant, they told us our food was on it's way, but our food still did arrive. We ended up canceling our order and ordering for another Chinese restaurant in town.
