I have eaten here numerous times for lunch and loved it. This wasn't the best though, my son enjoyed his DIY hot plate, my husband's Chinese was okay as was my crispy Peking steak. Meals came out quite quickly but the steamed and fried rice was about 5 mins after, my Peking steak was cold by then, hubby's stir fry... More

You won't be disappointed with the delicious food from bobbys! Don't let the dated decor or the slow service distract from the food. Been here many times and I'm never disappointed!

Bobby's on Grafton is a more clean and less crowded restaurant than Bobby's Aplin which is old, dated and overcrowded - plus the service at Grafton is much quicker. The menu is the same for delicious and generous sized noodle soup and rice dishes, plus they have chefs specials at reasonable prices. So far we have not been dissappointed with... More

We sat at the outside tables at Bobby's on a busy Saturday night and had a good time. My husband went for Chinese style food and it was really good and huge portions: fried rice, S&S pork and chicken/corn soup. I had Vietnamese vermicelli with marinaded pork - huge and delicious dish for only $13. We ordered at the front... More

A friendly greeting followed by prompt service. Ordered the banquet, food was served within a reasonable time, and was pleasantry enjoyable. Would recommend as a place for Asian fusion. Weather you enjoy Chinese, Vietnamese or both, you will be well satisfied.

Food was good. All v fresh. Service was a little slow but worth the wait. The place looks new so maybe the staff are still getting to know the routine. The bottles of chilli they put on your table nearly blew my head off. Wow !! Great decor - bright colours, big tv screens, karaoke stage (thankfully not performing when... More

Highly recommended for groups of four people or more! Order a few dishes, a soup and rice and you're set! My favourites include the beef pho (vietnamese national dish) the BBQ pork, salt and pepper quail, stir-fried garlic tofu with vegetables, the beef noodle salad just to name a few.

Mixture of Chinese and Vietnamese dishes - I think it would be better to try and concentrate on one and do it better. Food was OK and serves were large, so good value. But the staff were very inattentive - THREE times we asked for something that never came until we asked another person a second time. And it was... More

We had dinner here and found the food to be very palatable. The tofu rolls were delicious, Mongolian chicken and Hor Phan tasty. We would definitely come back to eat here when visiting cairns.
