Arrived just as they were closing, we did place an order but felt rushed and ended up taking our main course home. It wasn't bad food but it isn't the best Chinese either. It's probably not somewhere I would go again.

My 8 year old son is somewhat of a foody and loves our mother/son dinners, he chose Bobbys because it had Chinese and Vietnamese. It was, however so very bad, the spring rolls had some kind of congealed pork guts and bits of hot dog through them which was inedible. The picture on the wall of the seafood soup made... More

Fresh food, excellent flavour, good value and pleasant location. It would be a wonderful Asian restaurant with fun karaoke in relaxed environment with friends and families.

Ordered the gold banquet for 2. quail dry, lobster disappointing - sauce bland. Was expecting some great flavors but very mediocre for the price. Wouldn't return. Service was fine however.

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
