“Not bad, good value”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

I eat here regularly. It is a fast food Chinese restaurant with a good choice of menu. It is reasonably good value. Sometimes the staff speaks bad French and English and it can be hard to be understood.

You can get a carafe of tap water which is rare in Geneva.

The toilets are extremely dirty which surprises me. It has been like this for years. I do not know what the ladies toilets are like but I can imagine they are probably just as badly kept.

There are gambling machines on the stairs to the toilets and sometimes you have to excuse yourself to get past. They seem to be the same faces every time I visit.

Food is good, inexpensive but toilets are deplorable.

“Good-looking food, but tasteless”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Food needs to be tastier.
No dessert available, but espresso was offered.
Service was above average.

“Poor food, cafeteria style ,rude waiter”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

As reviews were favourable we tried Boky, big mistake. We are easy going but regretted eating here, our Thai curries had very little flavour.The waiter was rude and tutted when after just a few minutes of being seated we said we weren't quite ready to order,( same happened to a family on the next table ). It was like a canteen . Would suggest folks look elsewhere,( we had fab , reasonably priced meal at The Brasseurs opposite the train station, should have returned there).

“Relatively Inexpensive Average Chinese Food”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

Boky is located a few blocks from the train station. Service is pleasant and very efficient. The menu is huge, consisting of every chinese (mostly Cantonese) dish imaginable. Prices in the high teens and twenties are a lot less than most Geneva restaurants. The quality is about what you would get in an average Chinese take out.
Our sweet and sour chicken and shrimp with almonds were both ok in taste and size. They do not take credit cards.

“Tasteless food”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

With so many decent Chinese and other Asian restaurants around, it's surprising that this one can get away with serving food that barely tastes of anything - other than salt and, possibly, washing up liquid.
