Best in Byron for Thai Food

I have visited Byron on many occasions, my friend and I have slowly worked our way through the Thai/Asian food restaurants there. Asia Joe's was absolutely delicious, fresh, tasty, reasonable price. It is a tiny place, we visited on a stormy rainy night so the outdoor area was not suitable, we... read more

Ate here with friends last night. Food was really good, service was really good too and the place has a great atmosphere. My massaman curry was very tasty and the portion was generous. My wife had pad thai with prawns,again really nice. Our friends had 2 dishes off the specials board, both really good. BYO is only $1.50 a head.... More

First time at Asia Joe's last night and what a treat! Food was fresh, tasty and good value. Really enjoyed our meal. Obviously the place to go in Byron for good Asian food. Get there early as it gets busy.

Been here a few times and am never disappointed. One of the coolest little restaurants in byron with amazing decor and full of lovely, lively people. Be sure to get there early on your Friday/Saturday nights as can get busy, definitely a cool locals spot. The food is amazing and perfect to get your dose of veg as it's packed... More

First want to say if your wanting to eat an Asian cuisine in Byron Bay, your going to get an average meal. Coming from Melbourne where Asian food has high standards, I found the food here pretty ordinary. Vibe is great, decor is pretty hip, and the staff are very nice. However the food was bland and not very tasty.... More

Having recently been to Thailand, my wife and I looked forward to a Pad Thai. We had 2 serves of takeaway today and we're disappointed with the taste and texture. I have eaten at Asia Joe's before and it was much better. Hopefully you were just having an off-day. But I'm not sure I will be back to test that... More

In a part of Byron Bay that has the street restaurant feel of Southern Spain, Asia Joes has an interesting feel about it. Numbers served on spoons was cute, and it is busy, small and crowded. The food was very nice and the quality of ingredients was fresh and spices were spot-on. Serving sizes were not generous but adequate, and... More

We came here last year and loved it so it was at the top of our list to try again. The coconut dish with lemongrass was my favourite again although the cashews & ginger was a close second. My friend was in a healthy mood after a day of travelling the day before so she opted for the Bikini Bowl... More

This place was busy but we managed to squeeze in on one of the bigger tables and shared with a fun couple from Dublin. We shared the squid and then scoffed our way through a big nasi goreng and a yellow curry with crispy snapper - both really enjoyable. This isn't fine dining but it's fun, casual and well priced.

Heard so much about this place, so we were excited to try the 'best Thai in Byron'...we love our Thai food, and this was such a let down!!! We had the chicken Pad Thai (cluggy, overcomplicated and unauthentic) and the coconut/lemongrass curry (bland and uninspiring-even with added chilli) SO sorry to leave such a review, but if you're claiming 'inspired...

Hi - really sorry you did not enjoy our food. It is a shame we get labelled as a Thai restaurant because we aren't! Our food is based around Asian recipes with a Byron twist so much more emphasis on fresh veggies and clean flavours. The Coconut lime & lemongrass is not a curry and has no spice at all.... More
