Sookjai offers authentically tasting Thai food (Bangkok region). I have had the pleasure to dine there as well as taking out lunch and it good either way. Their lunch plates are a little bit smaller than their dinner plates, enabling you to eat without feeling bloated afterwards.

We had a family dinner at Sookjai Thai on Christmas Eve. Everybody's tastes from young to old were perfectly satisfied. The food was so fresh and tasty and great value on the bottle of wine.

We have eaten at Sookjai many times and have always been pleased. Our most recent visit on December 28th, was the best yet. Seven of us went after seeing Star Wars. We had no reservation and the restaurant was busy. A friendly waitress managed to seat us immediately at a slightly cramped table. She apologized and said she would be... More

Very pleasant dining experience, huge portions. We had the Pad Thai Goong and it was a treat. Same with the red curry chicken: nicely made, well-flavoured, served with panache. The coconut rice was really coconutty! I'd definitely eat here again.

Tom Yum soup is expensive compared to others and yet very bland. It tasted like it is from a can and then heated. I like the coconut rice though and the staff is nice.

Wanted to try some Asian food and couldn't really find anywhere on TripAdvisor that stood out, so we took a gamble and headed to the Sookjai. Great Thai restaurant. Frequented mainly by locals - good sign. Food was super and plenty of it. Great service and really affordable. Nice find in Victoria. Walked here from Fairmont - took about 20... More

We shared 2 plates # 4 and # 42 - one was a salad that was very fresh and with the lime and cilantro it was so tasty and the other was a prawn dish that also was very tasty and fresh. I will definitely be back to try some more dishes.

Fancied some Thai while on a brief visit to Victoria while on holiday in Canada, and this was on a list recommended by our hotel. Couldn't fault it. Staff were very friendly, service was quick and the food very tasty. Would return if were here longer.

During a two week trip that featured much time in Victoria and Vancouver exploring ethnic restaurants, this was at or near the top for the best meal. The food was well-prepared and the service was excellent. As an added benefit, the meal was a good value for the price charge.
