The Joy Luck stands out thanks to its upscale decor and menu of Taiwanese and Chinese comfort foods, and both local and national publications have noticed.
"Owner Alvin Lin's purpose with The Joy Luck was to offer Chinese cuisine filtered through a Taiwanese sensibility. It's a style that reflects many of China's regional cuisines but draws also on visual and textural influences from Japanese cuisine. The result is a fine and much-needed addition to Louisville's assortment of Asian restaurants." – Courier-Journal
"The 55-seat restaurant (not including several more seats at tables on its patio overlooking Bardstown Road, directly across from Mid-City Mall) is not your average Asian spot. Designed by Barry Wooley, the space has no dragons or Phoenixes, no red color scheme or faux-gold gilding. It’s contemporary and casual, yet subtly elegant." – Insider Louisville
"Diners are surrounded by good greetings immediately upon entering The Joy Luck, whose bright red walls are etched with fortune cookie-worthy sayings ('stay humble' and 'when was the last time you did something for the first time?'). This modern day display of a Chinese restaurant’s traditional feel-good elements was exactly what owner Alvin Lin was going for when he opened the venue—right down to the menu he created with his father." – Fodor's
