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

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!
