Technically in Pokesdown, and beloved by the residents of that Bournemouth neighbourhood, you can find this outlet of Joy at the head of the Southbourne retail area on Seabourne Road. It’s fair to say, though, that wherever Joy takes root it’s sure to result in exquisite Indian cuisine with an extra serving of class. Signature dishes here include the Goa green chicken curry, fairly hot thanks to the inclusion of plenty of green chillies but tempered by the addition of coconut milk that’s characteristic of the southern Indian regional cooking style. If you’re looking for something extra-fiery, go for the chicken or lamb curry cooked with naga chillies or the Bangla-style king prawns. A couple of Thai dishes make an appearance on the menu but, in the main, this place is a Joy for Indian food fans.
Fabulous meal!!! The best Indian we’ve found in a long time. Worth travelling from Ringwood for. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. See you again soon.
Great food with friendly and attentive service - we will definitely be returning! We were advised on sides that would compliment our food choices and were given choices on heat and texture. As usual Southbourne wins again!
Excellent food and great value on the 50% off Sunday offer!! Very friendly service and a good range of dishes on offer. We will definitely go back.
