Asian
New kid on the block, Betel Boy is serving you inspired pan asian food & cocktails in a contemporary and energetic venue, located on the iconic main street of Daylesford, Victoria. At the helm, Head Chef Chris combines thoughtfully sourced ingredients supplied by regional growers with his talent for Thai flavours and the result is some truly delicious fair. Sticky Bao Buns, drunk dumplings, sour salads top the menu. Wash it down with a Daylesford beer on tap, a cheeky cocktail or choose from the extensive wine list featuring local growers. Step in and be seduced by the vibe and surrounds of a considered space and service that makes you feel like you’ve been going there for years. Afterwards you can slip out the back to Boy-Bar, where the music is a little louder and the cocktails a little stronger.

Everyone loved what they ordered but they ran out of the amazing peanut butter parfait but I will forgive them... this time. Service by Casey was exceptional yet again.

We went for dinner. The ambience and service was great for a date night. However, the food left a lot to be desired; the dumplings did not taste fresh and the Gui Laan was not very flavoursome. The Larb Gai tasted great and turned out to be the saving grace. The wine options were quite nice as well. Unfortunately, they had run out of the red curry which we would have loved to try but overall the food can be much better!!

Delicious food, excellent service. We were there on a Friday night. It was pretty quiet in the restaurant but very busy with takeaway. Perhaps it’s still a well kept secret. We will definitely go back

This is my 10th visit and it fails to disappoint. You can’t fault anything and when you have great service (Casey) and fresh, beautifully presented food then everyone is happy.

Currently popping up in its sister cafe, Betel boy was a great experience that will be even better once they re-open in their usual spot. We did a feed me option and we’re absolutely stuffed full- such great value for money. The food was so delicious and true to SE Asian flavours. Cocktails were wonderful. Enthusiastic and attentive service. Would go again.

So glad we found Betel Boy for our girls dinner. The meals were absolutely delicious and the cocktails were so yummy. Great friendly, attentive service too. Lacked a bit of ambiance but this could be due to COVID or because we were eating quite early. If you can get a table outside in the courtyard that looked like a great option if the weather is fine.

Great food. Excellent service. We had the bao, spring rolls, Penang curry and you have to have the peanut butter parfait.

The food was great but the service was abrupt and put a dampener on the evening.

Great service and the food was delicious. The only negative we have is that for some reason we couldn't get through to the staff that we didn't want coriander on anything. We only managed one dish coriander free and the rest kept coming out with that horrible herb!
