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

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..

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
