I often come here and it always impresses, a particular favourite of mine that I can't seem to find in any other Chinese restaurant is that of the Peking sauce dishes The house special is very impressive as is the beef when garnished with this sauce and I would recommend it strongly. Another option if one is into a less... More

I've been living in Carlow give years and only started eating in Joe's after a work dinner was held here a few months back. I couldn't believe how wonderful this restaurant is. It feels like a real treat, with great service and really good food. I brought my boyfriend here over the summer, he had never had a Chinese meal... More

Superb atmosphere, quality food and excellent staff especially Deidre. If you want an experience that is second to none then Joe's in Carlow is well worth a visit. Pricing is spot on and you are always looked after as if you were a VIP.

Our family visit Joe's restaurant about once a month on average. Our children are vegan and vegetarian and its one of the few restaurants in Carlow that easily caters for both. The food is top class, the staff are wonderful, the wine is always nice - what can I say? For a great family night out you can't beat Joe's.... More

The food is seriously tasty. I don't even like chinese food, but my mouth waters thinking of Joe's. The staff are so on top of their game, I almost don't need to order. The Cantonese roast duck, exceptionally aromatic! The spicy crispy beef, astounding taste explosion! The king prawns with chilli, well, wowza! Add on a dish of noodles with... More
