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

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

We were in Victoria this month and decided to visit our favorite Thai food place in the city, we were sad to see all new waitresses and when we asked to speak to the owner who we have known for years, we were sad to hear that he moved back home and sold the business. But he was a wonderful... More

With the owner that brings his love and experience for food from across the Pacific, you have the taste of Thailand. Pick your favourite appy or ask the staff for their recommendation. We found them to be knowledge and will adjust to meet your needs. A positive experience with wonderful food.
