It's hard to find good Thai food but this place was great. We just had dinner there a few days ago and heard that they will be closing for 3 months to renovate the restaurant. The lemongrass soup was absolutely delish, as well as the wonton soup! We all ordered different items and we all enjoyed. The restaurant is very... More

Excellent Thai food nicely presented, flavorful and reasonnably priced. The restaurant is very nicely decorated with the Dumplings cooked in an open-style kitchen. Menu consist of different asian appetizers ranging from Spring Rolls, hand rolls, dumplings, soups, noodles, salads. Main courses are wonderfully presented! This restaurant should be considered if ever in the Harbor area. Service was efficient and pleasant.... More

I was craving thai food, this place was recommended by a friend. The waiter took ages to come to the table and there were no clients in the restaurant except for us and another table, so, total 4 people in the whole restaurant, and when we ask for the check the dude just stands at the other table with the...

BKJ’s is my all-time favorite places to have a great Thai meal in the Georgetown area. The food is always made to order, served hot, and always generously portioned.

Order the dumplings! They are the restaurant's interpretation of dim sum that you would find at a Chinese restaurant. Enjoyed the spin on traditional food. Nicely presented, tasty and totally satisfying. The Asian Sea Bass is pretty darn good too. Overall service was fast, friendly and efficient (although the receptionist was having an off day). Worth fighting the traffic and... More

Lunch or dinner, doesn't matter. The food is fresh. The service is very quick. Definitely try the spring rolls. The chicken salad is light but good. And the tofu curry is outstanding.

Been here twice and can not say the food is very good. It is in a great location and the atmosphere is excellent. The food though is just not good. I have the pad thai chicken and it was oily and not very flavorful. The pad thai shrimp only came with two shrimp. It is a good place for parties... More

Honestly, the food is good, especially the Basil Chicken. The atmosphere is ok. The seating near the bar takes you away from the draft seating at the windows during the winter. However, the service is very hurried and inconsistent (some customers seem to be adored, followed through their courses, offered dessert, and receive hot towels after their meals while others...
