Went to Asia Joe's because of the great reviews it gets on TripAdvisor. Ordered the New Goreng and Laksa. I have to say that I was extraordinarily disappointed with what I got. The chief complaint is the lack authenticity. A Malaysian laksa does not have broccoli and zuchinni (or courgette for those who come from overseas), it was also really... More

Its basically Thai food. Very cramped place. And food took like 45 minutes to be served from time of order..... which is partly why I'm only giving it three points.

A nice little restaurant tucked away in a laneway. It has alternate-style decor. Food was ok - nothing extraordinary though. It was very busy when we were there for dinner. It did not seem like a very clean restaurant. I don't recommend this restaurant for families with small kids. It is too cramped to bring in a pram and park... More

Went here for dinner and loved it! The food was fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is even better as you feel like you are in Bali or Thailand. Try to get there early for either lunch or dinner as the place gets really busy, however be patient as this is definitely worth the wait.

The food we had was great. Asia Joes is centrally located close to the beach hotel. It's free BYO for beer and only a small charge for wine. It is always crowded which is a testament to the great food. We had a coconut and lime curry and the Asian stir fry. Both were very tasty. I would definitely go... More

Went here for lunch today. Service and food were both great. We had the laksa and mee goreng and both were served quickly and tasted great. They also do BYO wine for $1.50 corkage per person.

Tucked away in a Byron back alley, this little gem will unlock your senses. Oddly, not run by Asians but don't be put off, the menu is traditional with a tasty spin on it. Seating is limited and we had to wait. I had the lemongrass, coconut and lime stir fry which came with rice without me having to order... More

Located in a back street off the main beach area we were surprised to find a plethora of quaint cafe/restaraunts to choose from. Asia Joes enticed us in the door with the specials board on the roadside with sumptuous options and good pricing. We didn't have a lot of time as the whole beach area is ticketed with parking meters.... More

Loved our Thai salads, fresh, crunchy, interesting and a terrific range of herbs, with an amazing dressing. Very busy, and yes bit quick on the table clearing but was cheap and cheerful. Lots of other great looking meals coming out of the kitchen. Will make this a destination on return trips as fresh salads with more than the basics are... More
