We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Mr Soy Boy. It was a refreshing change tasting the unique flavours, in the meals we had. The staff were very accomodation and lovely. I loved that the chief/owner made the time to come out and have a chat with us, to me this was over an above what is expected!! I can't wait to take the rest of the family to enjoy the fabulous food.

We really enjoyed our meal here. From the outside it looks like a standard suburban restaurant, but the unique food was more like what you would expect in a modern city restaurant. We had crab salad and dim sims for entree, followed by the Filipino noodles and Chefs special pork knuckle. Everything was excellent and the pork knuckle was something different. It was a large serving, with tasty salad and sauce.

Greeted promptly and staff is friendly and helpful. It was a very hot day and the staff seated us under the air conditioning to keep cool.The food is great and with the best Mongolian Beef in Cairns! Food portions are fair and delicious. Ferdie the owner/chef, took time out to come and greet us, which made us feel very welcomed. The restaurant is nothing fancy, which makes it great for casual family dinning. Highly recommend!

We went for an early (5pm) dinner and were seated promptly. The chef/owner took our order and was accommodating of our 8yo's request for plain fried tofu and rice. I'm vegetarian and loved the Singapore noodles, which were spicy and delicious. My husband had the Crispy Pork Pata and LOVED it. The menu is a diverse collection of recipes with Asian flavors. The restaurant is small and not fancy - perfect for family or simple dining - but if you don't go early, you might have trouble getting a table.

Service was good. They kept our water glasses filled. As others have said, the food can be slow in coming out, especially by American standards (there were only 2 people working the kitchen), but it is worth the wait!

Cairns suburbs no has a great restaurant (at last) with no parking in Cairns and taxi price make it not worth dining out it great to fine Mr Soy Boy.

I have seen it there for over a year but last night my wife and I went there and were we surprised, the staff seemed genuinely friend chef waved from the kitchen and came and said high later during the night, reasonably price wine and a good mix but the food it was delicious a sort of Asian fusion mix the Sizzling Mongolian Beef was one of the best I have eaten, great cooked meat generous serves, will go back aagin soon.
