Located within the Hyatt Regency Perth on Adelaide Tce in the CBD.

Joe's features a sumptuous array of dishes from Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, India and Singapore - each prepared in a spectacular exhibition kitchen. The menu carries picture coding, indicating for healthy meals and chilli dishes.
An abundance of wood, natural brick and terracotta creates a rustic ambience enhanced by a collection of authentic Asian antiques and works of art. Coupled with a casual, bustling and firendly atmosphere, this helps recreate the spirit reminiscent of the original Joe's Oriental Diner - a legendry noodle house in Singapore.

Chef de Cuisine Steven Yeong and his assisting chefs provide consistent and authentic Asian delights to the public. Regular promotions include Curries of the World, Chinese & Thai New Year and a monthly focus on different country cuisines.

The minute you walk into Joe’s Oriental Diner you’re hit with the overwhelming aromas of garlic, chilli, lemongrass and many other nostril tingling fragrances. The open kitchen plays centre stage among all the traditional wood carvings and antique artefacts to transport diners into the ancient world of the Orient. In a venue with such genuine decor, I had to ask how it came to acquire such a non-traditional name. To cut a long story short, the restaurant is dedicated to Joseph Mink; an eccentric American junk millionaire who in the 1800s opened a small noodle house in Singapore bearing the same name. With his cheeky pet monkey playing the piano, the venue fast became the place to be seen and a haven for great tasting food. Sadly one night Joe had one too many Singapore Slings and knocked over the kerosene heater, burning the diner to the ground.

Located on the ground floor of the Hyatt Regency in Perth’s CBD, this particular version of Joe’s Oriental Diner is without the piano-playing monkey yet offers amazing South East Asian cuisine. Following traditional recipes to create dishes such as tom yum kung (hot and sour prawn soup), Thai fish cakes and prawn toast for appetisers, the international chefs hail from a range of different regions to ensure the food is as authentic as possible. Servings are of decent proportions and those with a penchant for Asian style noodles and soups will love the curry laksa, fried kway teow, pad Thai and Malaysian mee goreng. If you prefer a hit from the wok, there are plenty of dishes to choose from like the chilli crab, beef rending and Fu Yong shrimp omelette. With “chilli ratings” next to each dish on the menu, it’s the perfect spot to introduce the kids to the flavours of the Orient.

Joe's Oriental Diner - User Reviews


Been here a couple of times, and each time did not go home hungry!!! Food is very good both for quality and quantity. As soon as you walk in, there is someone there to assist. I found this restaurant through Best Restaurants, and thought it would be one of those best kept secrets!!! How wrong I was!!! On Friday and Saturday nights you may wish to book ahead as it does get very busy!!!. Very happy to recommend this  14/08/2011
