Dietary optionsGluten free, Vegetarian dishes
Marinated wagyu chuck rib 200g
$55
Chuck rib meat comes from the shoulder area and is evenly marbled with a perfect balance of fat and lean meat. However, compared to short ribs, chuck ribs tend to be chewier
Marinated wagyu brisket 200g
$30
Brisket is commonly slow-cooked or smoked, which helps to tenderize the meat and bring out its rich, smoky flavor. However, JOA uses mbs 9 wagyu brisket, which is more tender and well-balanced for BBQ.

    The salad bar is getting worse and worse, not much choice + no refulling. Shrimp crackers was not crispy. Bbq meat is soso, not bad but nothing special.

    I am a return customer. Food is always delicious but we would recommend going earlier. We went to a later booking (8pm) and there was little left of the sides and they ran out of rice. The food we had was delicious though and the kids liked that they had Cotton candy (even if it was only one serve per table).

    Our first Korean BBQ experience and we would go again. An intimate location and great vibe. Outstanding food and great value for money.

    Situated in a quiet neighbourhood JOA offers the same quality and experience you'd find in the city without the hassle of going into the city. The food was delicious and presented well with free complementary sides. The staff were friendly and attentive. The setting was warm and welcoming. Definitely worth a visit even if you're not in the area.

    Service and food are excellent. The only downside is the charcoal smell was too strong. It will be good if they can improve the venting.

    The meat is very high quality and their cooked dishes come out from the kitchen very quickly. The waiters are always friendly and efficient.

    Great food and happy friendly staff. It's fun cooking your own BBQ delicacies at the table. The cost of corkage per bottle is something to consider if you are taking your own wine.

    Been going to Joa since they first opened, and every time is a delicious, lovely experience. Such a warm and inviting environment, with attentive staff and amazing food. I always leave with a full belly and a smile on my face.

    Always like the food there and service is consistently good. However, would be better ambience if the bbq smoke level can be reduced by improved ventilation

    We had the self BBQ with a selection of meats plus a glass noodle dish and omelet. Everyone really enjoyed the food. Relaxed atmosphere with separate booths so not too noisy or crowded. We will be going again.
