The Orient Express in Byron Bay, Australia, sits just opposite the beach front, walk past the Byron Bay Hotel and it’s on the next corner. The Express can also be found if you look out for its showcase of red lanterns.
The service here is really what makes the place sell: staffs are accommodating, friendly and attend to your thirst and hunger needs immediately.
The layout is designed to offer you high-rise bench seating on the ‘balcony entrance’ for two persons on those warmer evenings. While the chunky wooden tables inside hold larger parties.
It has an easy going atmosphere with enough people bustling inside to give it some noise. There were constantly people finishing up and newbie’s arriving, while other restaurants looked vacant, you soon understand why this place is on the radar, it’s Thai/Chinese style grub!
The scrumptious duck pancakes as a starter can also be enjoyed as a main, or you can challenge yourself to the noodle menu and sample a much fuller duck course with noodles almost to the thickness of lasagne sheets coated in dark plum sauce, chunky vegetables and offerings of meat.
If you can’t finish your meal then take the rest home for tomorrow’s lunch. They will parcel it up in a Noodle Box and away you go.
Starters from $15 and Mains from $17. For more info check out this site Orient Express
P.S. The soups were also highly recommended and worth a taster. Let me know what you sample next!
