We stopped at Sookjai Thai for a late lunch one day while we were vacationing in Victoria. The service was really good, and the food was excellent. We ordered Gai Phad Bai Graprow and Gai Phad Khing.

Spotted the place when driving and decided to try it later the same day as somewhere different to eat. Very welcoming and the sole waitress very helpful. Good menu, reasonable prices, food very good and quick service. Be warned the portions are large.

According to the menu “Sookjai” means “don’t worry, be happy.” A very apt name for this restaurant (at least in our case), because there was no worry about getting great food and leaving happy. We ate here for the first time last night and were very impressed—by the fabulous food, good service and pleasant atmosphere. The four of us shared... More

We ate here recently and the food quality was very good, however, I ordered a green curry and was warned it would be very spicy, I said "Great, I love spice!", but what I got was extremely mild so I was disappointed. Will definitely give them another go though, as my partners dish was perfect!

I work as a tour guide all over the world and know my way around. Especially in Victoria/Canada, since I come there every two weeks. I like a good Thai meal and I have been to every Thai restaurant in town. At least, that is what I thought... Today I had my birthday and my group was off. So was... More

I just wanted an ordinary Thai-ish meal, like you can get in most cities across north America. I ordered Phad See Iew, my favorite dish. This version was mostly lacking in flavor, with most of the flavor being salt. On the plus side, the 2 servers were nice and attentive, and I had a decent cider with my meal.

I love Thai food. Flavour is what Thai food is all about. I love the combinations of curry, satay, coconut, chillies, and (to Dennis’ horror) cilantro. Whereas Canadian fare, founded mostly on European precedents, tends to blend flavours, Thai cuisine wants to separate those flavours, so that each shines individually. This creates a complex palate of contrasting and supportive flavours... More
