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.

I really cannot fault Betel Boy. It's fresh, vibrant, comfortable and welcoming. We opted for the Feed Me set menu and that is really the best was to sample what this talented young kitchen is capable of. It was a terrific variety of dishes comprising starters and mains. We also opted for a desert to cleanse the pallet. This is exciting food that really gets your tastebuds dancing. Highly recommended. We will return!

Amazing staff. Over the top helpful with my chilli allergies. Food was fantastic. Bar lady made the best martini I’ve ever had. I can’t wait for full capacity so I can sit at the bar each weekend. Great great place.

A fabulous ambience on entry as our host greeted us joyfully and led us to a warm space on banquet seating in delightful mustard gold tones. An excellent wine list with great recommendations made and accepted. The extensive menu included two feed me chef options. A sophisticated Asian fusion menu was absolutely splendid. Our selection included the duck pancakes, mushroom and tofu spring rolls with spicy sauce followed by green curry Barra and Gai lan in a divine ginger soy sauce! My friend was thrilled by the sake and I was very happy with a champagne style bubbly!

Outstanding food, great drinks menu and outstanding service. Sarah & Luke have given the Central Highlands eating scene an almighty shake up with this superbly designed and decorated venue. Cannot recommend this eatery highly enough. It is a must visit if you are in the region.

Amazing food and a lovely team of dedicated wait staff. Friendly and going out of their way to provide us with the perfect evening.
The only slight problem was that as the sun went down it shone directly into our eyes, perhaps a blind is needed to help with that issue.
Would thoroughly recommend for a good evening out
