This is the best Chinese/Malaysian restaurant in Cairns. Excellent for functions, and for visits at any time. Extremely friendly service, and the food is great.

Had my first CKT in Cairns the dish was good not great lacked a little of the richness of the great CKT's That said it was still good great meat content and very tasty if you are a CKT fan it's definitely a destination for you

The staff are super fantastic and will often remember your order between visits. The lunch specials are great value for money and the environment is easy with kids. My children love the Capital special fried rice. Highly recommend Limmy's for Malaysian cuisine and have received quick service.

Overpriced, overcooked and old and musty. The only good things were the friendly waiting staff, and leaving. I love Malaysian good but we will not e coming back here for any.
