Was looking for some nice and easy Asian food and found Orient Express Eatery. Picked the dumplings, crispy rice salad, pork belly and pad Thai. The dumplings were average but everything else was great, especially the crispy rice salad!!! Amazing food, highly recommend

Everyone enjoyed the night, service was great, and the dishes were large and very reasonably priced. We were very keen to go back the next day for yum cha, but got sidetracked. Highly recommended and we will be back.

Be warned corkage is $10 per person, compared to other places in Byron who either charge nothing or max $5 per person this is extreme. Serving sizes are enormous so best to think you're under ordering. Food though was pretty good.

Modern Asian cuisine at its finest. Dinner every night and Yum Cha for lunch on weekends. Great selection of teas and wines, hand picked to complement the food. A necessary experience in Byron Bay.
