“Felt like one of the family.”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

The welcome was warm - a good start when out on your own. That continued all through the meal as the owner was present, attentive and not invasive (good skills).
Lou Rawls live on the big screen provided great background music and with reasonably close comfortable seating providing a family feel.
The meals looked big, so settled for corn entree and an entree serve of ribs, chips & veg - just enough and so very yummy.
So many other other 'not usual' meals on offer, shame limited time this trip.
Then I heard the description of the Key Lime desert, why not! More yum.
Most enjoyable evening, thank you.

“Great Food, Friendly Atmosphere”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Our first time at Voodooz but not the last, the Jumbalaya & Gumbo were outstanding with decent size portions (especially the Jumbalaya), my wife had the ribs which were also fantastic.
If your after something different in Cairns then this is the place, well done Voodooz and see you next time.

“Funky Vibe, Fabulous Food and a Warm Welcome!”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

We loved everything about Voodooz from the funky vibe with the cool music and decor to the fabulous food that is delicious with some quirky twists on the menu, like banana mayo with chips (it's seriously addictive!) and the flapjack cornbread - yum!!! The serves are generous and the menu is extensive (in addition to jambalaya, gumbo, fried chicken and ribs you can also get excellent steaks and salads). We had a couple of fussy eaters in our party but they enjoyed their meals. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. It's in a great central location in Cairns and it was easy for us to walk there. We came here last year and loved it, and couldn't wait to come back this year. This is one of our favourite restaurants.

“Just like home in Louisiana”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Jason and staff have created a little bit of Louisiana right in the middle of Cairns. I grew up in Louisiana and still cook jambalaya, red beans and rice, and seafood gumbo. Voodooz is just like sitting around a family kitchen with good food, good music and a bar for the adults. Stop in and stay a while!
