Very poor food and management

I visited Bobby's Vietnamese tonight with my girlfriend. We were very hungry after walking around the markets all evening and were looking for something fresh, we both love Vietnamese so it seemed like a good choice. The food was very pricey and based on that and the seemingly good menu we thought... read more

Food fresh, quick and tasty. Meals of reasonably large proportions and we over ordered. Enjoyed our meal there and will return again.

We went in here our first day in Cairns and we just needed to eat somewhere near our hotel. We noticed some signs offering lunch meals deals and decided to give it go. We were told they were not on offer as we were sitting down to eat ( signs did not say this). In the end we just ordered... More

Bobby's has great pho ( soup) and Bahn mi ( Vietnamese bread rolls ) and the family banquets are exceptionally good value. The only downside is the decor and the blaring televisions . Karaoke is a lot of fun here and the staff are very courteous. Children are welcomed here.

I'd been looking forward to dining at Bobby's having seen it a couple of nights before we had the chance to dine there. The mix of Chinese and Vietnamese is good but a little unclear on the menu. We had problems with the language barrier as clearly English is a second language to some. We tried to order a gin... More

There were 4 diners total in the entire restaurant. I ordered Shredded Pork rolls from the menu which listed Prawn Rolls, Chicken Rolls & Shredded Pork Rolls. I asked how... More

The range was pretty good, if limited in some respects eg. they won't do any seafood dish as an entree (including salt and pepper squid, which is a pretty popular entree that's great for sharing) and prices reasonable by Cairns standards, but expensive by most of the rest of the country. The staff were all very courteous but they had... More
