Mundane restaurant, excellent food

If you care about tasty, authentic Chinese and / or Vietnamese food, but not very choosy about the ambiance, décor, lighting and the view, head to Bobby’s in Aplin Street, near the Esplanade. The place is crowded and seating is difficult to come by. When you are seated, you will find yourself in a... read more

We liked the variety of the joint menu, the "man" size main course servings, the freshness of the food, the Asian ambience, the good wine and beer list and the ever smiling staff and owner, Bobby. A hoot of person.

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.

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

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.
