Small and tranquil space with super efficient and friendly service. On mentioning I had a tighter timeframe for lunch the server pre-did the bill, set up a to-go pack for a quick dash at the end and made sure things were moving the whole time. Lunch combos are big and a great deal for the price with heapings of piquant... More

Service and food was great. I found the atmosphere a little dull and outdated. But it is clean and food came fast. Prices are a little on the higher side for Thai in Victoria, but the quality is good, everything tasted very fresh.

The food here is consistently good and fresh And the flavour profiles are more Thai than North American. Variety is excellent and the service if very good. Value for money

Consistently good food, always pleasant staff and a nice atmosphere. One of those places I feel I should frequent more often. The lunch menu is really good value. My favorite dish there is the Pla Lard Prig - it is so good.

As a retired couple with our tastebuds still in tact :-) we thought to give 'Sookjai Thai' a third try. The restaurant itself is cozy (but) on the dark side. We both ordered from the lunch menu: ' Phad Thai Moo' which is: Flash fried rice noodles with pork, tofu, egg, green onions, fresh bean sprouts, grated peanuts and chilies.... More

My husband and I walked into this restaurant on a very busy Monday evening and were fortunate enough to get a table. Service is friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is comfortable. We ordered the Phad Thai with shrimp and while it was good, we detected a smokiness to it that we're not used it. Our server said it has... More

I love Sookjai Thai for a delicious and affordable. This has become my once a week staple! Their Chicken curry is so tasty and the service is always on point. I love the small touches like the lemon lime water. Can't wait to come back.

My sister had just gotten out of the hospital a few days earlier - she was craving lunch that would be really tasty (but not overly spicy). She suggested Thai as she knows that's also my great weakness. We pick Sookjai Thai as it was close to the car. Right from when we walked in it felt very good -... More
