I have been here quite a few times for lunch on various visits to Victoria and have never been disappointed so decided to try it our for dinner. The menu offers a great selection and you can choose how spicy you want it. There is lots of food so ended up with enough for lunch the next day as well.... More

I enjoy eating at Sookjai Thai. They have a pleasant restaurant, close to the city core, with good field, nice lunch specials and efficient service. Do not expect many smiles or much of a welcome -- dour is us -- but the food is delivered promptly, tastes very good and comes in large quantities. It is not the best Thai... More

My Thai visitors were disappointed with the food. It was more like Chinese food than Thai. Disappointing. The restaurant is under new ownership. If you like Chinese food it's probably okay.

Have visited this restaurant twice in the last couple of months. Both times the service was excellent. Both servers were extremely attentive, polite and friendly. The over-sized portions are well presented and the vegtables fresh. Tasty dishes!!! My one complaint is that I believe they over use salt; as my wife, adult children and myself all felt very thirtsy after... More

This place was recommended by the hotel. Not being that familiar with Thai food, we asked about the "heat" and were assured that the dishes would be cooked with less heat, and sauces provided for those who wanted more spice. The sauces were terrific and we were told they make them in house. The food was good: (Por Pya; Khow... More

Ok threre is no decent pad thai in this town. I've tried them all and this was about the last try. I give up. The pad thai from this place was dry, had no green onions, and just skind of clumped together. No thanks. The spring rolls were pretty good, but they came with a weird sweet sauce like chinese,...

My husband and I were Sookjai Thai regulars. We hadn't gone for a while for no reason in particular and in that time the restaurant ownership changed hands. We ordered the same dishes we usually did, Gra Tong Taung, Crying Tiger, Guay Teow Phad Ped, and Moo Gratiem - and the only one that was anywhere near as good was... More

Our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant, and although it is a bit far from the harbor hotels, the food was really, really good. The entrees are served family style, one big bowl that easily serves two adults. We still got two entrees, the milder Thai fried rice with chicken, and one spicier shrimp dish. The two together actually made both... More
