This restaurant was booked entirely for a social club function as it had karaoke. Bobbys advertising says that it has authentic Vietnamese food. Having traveled extensively throughout SE Asia including Vietnam, the food served was the absolute worst I have ever eaten.

Very good coffee both iced and hot. The steak was tough and served with an over fried egg 8 minutes before everyone else and their eggs were served cold. People were nice and I'm thinking the lesson learned is don't have a Australian breakfast in a Vietnamese restaurant.

Had the $25 gold banquet for two people. What a great meal, the service was friendly and quick. The banquet was tasty and I will return again. Well worth a visit and recommend the banquet.

Average to say the least. Noodles were burnt and the chicken was as dry as chicken could possibly get. Soggy spring rolls.

Take a break from your overpriced hotel breakfast and enjoy a variety of brekky styles with great coffee and smoothies. I walk across town to frequent Bobby's Free WiFi and air-conditioning all help.

Always loved this place - went there all the time in the old location. Went there tonight - worst meal we've had in Cairns in long time. Ordered our old favourites - salt and pepper squid, greens in oyster sauce and fried rice. Fried rice came out was ok - best part of the meal. Then the S&P squid arrived... More
