We have found that Bobby's have moved to Grafton Street. That's OK, because their Pho is the best. So with Pho and Marinaded Beef and Noodle salad, and a bottle of wine we were happy. The meal was well priced, and PLENTY of it. Wine a little on the expensive side, but enjoyable. Totally recommend it for a meal.

Had lunch at new Bobby's in Grafton St and it was delicious ! The food and the homemade chilli pastes were very tasty, and plenty of it..The beer was nice and cold and the staff very friendly and helpful. Best lunch we've had for ages

Staffed by cheerful servers and offering a range of simple, delicious Vietnamese dishes at reasonable prices, this place is a favourite of my partner and I.

Had dinner at Bobbys with a group for a birthday party. Meals were in large proportions. It was hard to work out what the meals consisted of. Asked for vegetable dish with chicken and recommended a dish but when it came had very few vegetables. All other dishes were tasty.

Very quick service and nice staff. I ordered a beef noodle soup (pho). It was good. Not the best and never beats mums cooking but hit the spot.

I love this place! My Fellow broke friends and I were hunting for somewhere we could afford for breakfast (standard prices seeming to be around $15+) when we stumbled across this little gem! 😃 Like a shining light from above we saw the sign advertising: "Big Oz Breakfast + Drink for $10.90" We had our doubts but were not disappointed!...

My friends and I dined here for dinner while we were on holiday in Cairns. They had a "dinner special" that night which was the pork chop with rice, so 2 of us ordered it. One of our friends ordered the chicken pho(a bowl of Vietnamese soup noodles with chicken) and I ordered an entree rice paper roll for sharing.... More

I went for lunch and had Pho. The serving was very generous and it was well priced, compared to other items on the menu. I have a feeling the generous servings are across the board, as they're charging what you'd expect for 2 servings and I saw several people walk out with doggy bags. The service is friendly.

Bobby's is often talked about as a place to eat but I found that the staff, although keen to serve, just didnt give you time to meet, chat and look at the menu. I think we were asked 4 times in 5 minutes if we wanted to order and the place was not busy. The food was served hot and... More

$6 fresh vietnamese pork ,chicken or beef rolls. They have these advertised out front to sit along street or takeaway, but not a problem to sit inside with a glass of wine. Would definitely be back next time in Cairns.
