The team at Obi’s thank the community for their support over the years.

AFTER spending years providing a fine dining experience to residents of the Tablelands, popular restaurant Obi’s will be closing at the end of February and moving on. 

The announcement came via Obi’s Facebook page on January 28 and support for the restaurants owners Vanessa Harris and Obi Oberhauser has poured in since the announcement. 

After being offered an amazing 200-seater venue in Cooktown, Obi saw it as an opportunity he could not pass up. 

“200 people a night and 100 people for lunch is what we do in a week here, it’s one day up there,” he said. 

“We got the best deal you could get, it’s just so attractive that I could not turn it down. 

“Thank you to everyone on the Tablelands for their amazing support we cannot thank the locals and businesses enough.” 

By making the move to Cooktown, Obi will also be able to spend time with his family and take a more active role and focus on what he does best, cooking. 

Obi’s will have its last trading day on Saturday, February 28.
