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

Every meal we've had here has been delicious however we go very rarely because they are too overpriced. This is not upscale dining just a casual Chinese restaurant but they charge around $18 a plate and the soda refills are not even free. Also, they charge $10 to share a plate. Maybe that's not expensive to some people but to... More

Went there with a friend because she had been there and loved the Hot & Sour Soup. So we went one night before the theater. Boy was she right. The soup is probably the best Hot & Sour I have ever had. We had the shrimp with walnuts and shared it. I do agree with the other reviewers that they... More

Two things you can expect when going out for Chinese - a full stomach and cheap meal. Unfortunately I experienced neither when I stopped in for lunch. Most entree's were $10 or more on the special lunch menu. With my Chicken Lo Mein, I did not get anything extra, no soup, eggroll or even noodles to dip in duck sauce.... More

Had the pleasure of having dinner here when I visit Tampa. Family run, by a husband and wife team and their young son. Food is made to order. Victoria is a gem and makes the whole dining experience pleasurable! You won't be disappointed.

We traveled to Clearwater Beach with friends who had been to the area before. It was suggested that we drive to Oldsmar to have dinner at Big Bok Choy Bistro. I wasn't sure just how good "the best Chinese food ever" had to be to to make that drive. Big Bok Choy Bistro is by far the best Chinese food... More

How can anyone give a poor review to this clean little family owned restaurant? I understand peoples perceptions are their reality, however "the truth is in the pudding" as they say! I should say the truth is found in Big Bok Choy Bistro's Chef quality food! Fresh, made to order by the owner, every time! The food is unbelievable! Truth... More
