“Try the Curry Chicken soup”
Reviewed 29 December 2012

The golden rule; If the restaurant is crowded you should try it...worked for us in this case. It was not long waiting time. The prices was to minimum (5-7$ per meal). The Curry Chicken soup was excellent. We also tried the duck and it was really good.

“Good food”
Reviewed 27 December 2012

Been to bo ky twice in past month. Had the spring rolls, shrimp rolls and different soups. All very good and reasonably priced. Service ok. Bathroom not so clean. But overall a good experience and great value. Enjoy.

“The best Chinese food, the cheapest price”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

I tried this no-frills restaurant because it was recommended by my travel guide (lonely planet) and the food was as good and inexpensive as it said.
Don't expect a nice atmosphere and this is not a place for a romantic dinner, but if you love Chinese food, it is the place where to go

“one of the best cheap eats”
Reviewed 14 January 2012

Could it be the MSG? I'm not sure, but this place has really tasty food. Their duck over rice is really delicious. And I often buy their homemade chile sauce home too.

“Not like it use to be......”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

The food in Bo Ky really has hit a all time low! The noodles used to have bean sprouts and preserve cabbage on the bottom as a base for the soup, it was one of the thing that made Bo Ky special. Right now, no more special soup,skimping on little things here and there. I just feel ripped off when I go in there now! The cost for a bowl of noodles has skyrocketed,they are nickel and diming,and accepts tax but not credit cards. Owners you are getting too greedy!!!
