Hands down, if you enjoy Chinese food, this establishment has the best in the area. Everything is prepared after you order from fresh,quality ingredients. You can't be in a hurry because the chef/owner is the only one on the kitchen and he is intent on giving you top quality cuisine. We eat here... read more

Ate here many times but concluded Chef Lee's nearby is better value. The food may be slightly better at Big Bok, but the higher prices here dissuaded me. It's all pretty good. Can take a little longer. As a local, there's nothing all that great on the Chinese front in this area. For great Thai, however, go to Amarit's a... More

Great food, friendly knowledgeable owners who are proud of the high quality food they serve. This is not your typical Chinese restaurant. Food is all cooked to order and market fresh. Not Cheap but easily worth the cost. Will be back again!j

Decided to try this place out because of the great trip advisor reviews. With such great reviews we were surprised to find the place empty at lunch. The only other person we saw was the rude employee that was there to serve us. After receiving our menus and looking at the high prices I asked our server if she had... More

We dine here monthly and are never disappointed with the quality of the food. It is always freshly prepared, seasoned to perfection and nicely presented. Don't be in a hurry as every meal is cooked to order---nothing is prepared in advance. The ingredients are fresh and locally sourced. If you like GOOD Chinese , this is the place to go.

Everything is home made to order and is fresh and amazing. Try the Spicy Shredded Chicken, it's to die for. We are addicted! It's family owned and operated and such a nice family. Don't be in a hurry because like I said it's all home made to order. The best fried rice too. Expect to pay more but well worth... More

I travel to Asia for business, and it is difficult to eat most of the food that passes for Chinese in Florida. This place is as close to real as I have found. Quiet, simple atmosphere with very good food and attentive service.

I've been to Big Bok Choy a couple of times and I'll continue to go as long as I'm in the area! The food is always fresh and flavorful and the waitress there (it's always the same lady but I can't recall her name at the present) is so unbelievably sweet. She has remembered my face and always says "welcome... More

Amazing high quality authentic Chinese food. This is not mall Chinese food and it is a bit pricier but worth every penny for the quality. My husband loves the spicy shredded beef or chicken. The orange chicken is so delicious. The walnut prawns are the best I've ever had and the hot sour soup that comes with the meal has... More

Big Bok Choy is a simple little Mom and Pop Chinese restaurant. If you are looking for a fast. inexpensive dinner go somewhere else as everything is prepared as ordered. I agree with other reviewers that is over priced but the quality is top notch so I can live with the price. I also agree that the Hot and Sour... More
