We have known Bobby and Thuy, ( hope I spelled that right, :-) ) for years, and they always serve very authentic Vietnamese food. We were in Cairns last month and of course visited them. They did a special banquet for 19 of us and it was awesome....especially the steamed baby Barramundi. My fave is the green lipped mussels in... More

we been to bobby's many times and always really enjoyed the food. In the new location they make absolutely fantastic bread rolls with your choice of meet. It is simple place to have a good meal without any fuss. But if you like wait staff hovering around topping up you glass of wine, it might not be for you

We read about this place and made a good effort to locate the place. Well rewarded for our trouble.. The pho choices were good and considered good value. Service was good and welcoming... Would recommend for others to patronize this eatery for Vietnamese beef noodle soup.
