Authentic Malaysian & Thai + Great Customer Service

My husband, our four-month-old puppy and I recently had a delicious and casual dinner at Asia Joes. Down a little laneway, the restaurant serves up authentic Malayasian and Thai treats. My chicken laksa was better than the laksa I had in Kuala Lumpur - and that's saying something. The staff were... read more

The food was nice but the staff and wait definitely dampened the mood. My husband and I wanted to eat our food at the beach while the sun set. We where advised that our food would be 20 min, after a long 50 minute wait and very rude staff the sun had set and we ended up eating in our... More

I think the Owner, Manager and Chefs need to go to Asia and taste street food first before they attempt to cook it. Most dishes we ordered were drowning in sauce, the woman that took our order was extremely rude and should not be in the Customer Service industry and the floor was greasy and un-swept. Over all the experience... More

Our local for a reasonably priced amazing thai meal! The laksa, coconut special, bikini bowl and prawns wrapped in lettuce are the winners! Great for a quick meal with small group of friends or couple

Had take-away Lemongrass, Lime and Coconut Tofu stirfry. It was so good I was sad I couldn't finish it! Also vegetarian spring rolls were the best I've ever had.

Asia Joes advertises 'fresh wok food' and that is exactly what you get! I have eaten here several times - twice this year. They're famous for chicken pad Thai. Tonight we enjoyed crispy snapper laksa and chicken nasi goreng - delicious. Service? Friendly as always.

The place looked great, the menu was enticing and the food was really good - when it finally came out. No word of apology or acknowledgement that we'd been waiting 40 minutes. Also the two male servers didn't seem terribly confident and were downright unfriendly. More communication with your customers would make a big difference to this place.

We ate at Asia Joe's in December 2013 and loved it. The food and atmosphere were great so when we returned to Byron for the weekend we went straight back... Sadly we were disappointed. Whilst the atmosphere was good, the food was not - I know it's not cheap but the salt and pepper squid rates like it was out... More

This restaurant doesn't accept bookings just turn up and wait for a table. Fairly small and cramped eating area mainly on benches but what the restaurant lacks in comfort is made up for by the fresh asian flavours in their curries and stir fries. Dined at a table for 4 and all of us enjoyed the curries, srifries and starters.... More

Had a watery weird tasting curry and a stirfry that had no asian flavour , the serving sizes were small and all this with the bonus of being overpriced and a slack waitress with attitude really topped off the experience..
