Joy Box looks like a modern coffee shop
from the outside. Upon stepping inside the wood and
glass door, however, you'll realize that it has a bright,
simple dining space, a clean, open kitchen, a bar and
a small courtyard. This spot is ideal for group meetings
or just sipping a cup of tea on a cool afternoon while
enjoying soft music playing in the background. Their
authentic Japanese cuisine is just as good as the ambience.
There are tasty tea peas as appetizer, and the thick,
crispy Pork Chop (which tastes great with either kimchi
or a sandwich) is the top seller in the shop. Thick,
smooth curries and various set meals are also great
choices. Set meal prices apply to lunches and the afternoon
tea menu. Individual entrees are on the menu during
dinner hours. After the meal, try their smooth Yunnan
coffee. On weekends, live music provides a relaxing
atmosphere for guests to enjoy their food and music.
Joy Box welcomes your visit anytime.
