Average Joe's

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..

The 1st time we went it was epic. It was a bit quiet and our food came fast. Had a really nice pad thai and the others had big bowls of green curry. Big thumbs up. Then I think the popularity of the place skyrocketed and it's hard to get a seat. Pretty nice vibes inside though.

Just had a beautiful meal at Asia Joe's in Byron Bay! It is a small, intimate place reflective if a street food place. The seafood was fresh and cooked to perfection. The the taste was subtle but delicious and the staff were attentive and friendly. Beautiful night and a great memory of Byron! Thank you! The place was recommended to... More

Ordered a pad Thai, salt and pepper squid and a mee goreng to takeaway. Was told it was 15-20 min wait which was fine if it was that...not when it's really 35mins! No apology or anything. Besides the squid, everything was rather bland and average and felt like it was an expensive version of noodle box or wok in a... More

Great place. Amazing atmosphere, really nice staff. I've been to Around the world and honestly this is one of the best asian places in the world! Such good value for money! I come here every time I'm in Byron. Zero complains. Im vegetarian and it 100% catered for my needs and my omnivorous friends loved every bite also!

The service was very good, unfortunately the food was a disappointment. I ordered a laksa, but it lacked flavour and there were not very many noodles, good portion of chicken and prawns though. Also had some entrees, the salt and pepper calamari was good but the curry puffs tasted store bought and overdone. The food is expensive and is not... More

This place might be ok if they work on the service. There seemed to be 3 wait staff on - 1 lady who was rushing around like a maniac getting stuff done and 2 guys who seemed to have no idea what they were doing, though they were all friendly. I won't go into detail but the service was basically... More

We had a decent enough meal here as a family of 4. Everyone's was nice except mine which I thought was too bland and thick & creamy, not what I was expecting, but there was enough food to satisfy all. BYO too.

Nice delicious well cooked lunch was had by all. Fresh and tasty, large portions. Thoroughly enjoyable. We had the lunch time menu and if was great value for money. We tried to return for dinner on a Monday night and we couldn't get a seat. It was full and busy. Which is usually a good sign.
