“Value for money, great tasting meals on the cheap.”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

Love the pork chop rice. Used to be a cheap eat period, but has since improved to a cheap eat + tasty food spot. Highly recommended for Chinatown.

“Great authentic Chinese Food & very inexpensive”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

It is a bit of a dive but the food is fantastic. It is located in the heart of Chinatown and is a real locals place. Very small so you may have a wait but, it is worth it.

“Horrible Horrible restaurant”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

I am not picky on food, I like most of the Chinese restaurant. Bo Ky is the only one I use HORRIBLE to describe. The restaurant is so DIRTY. The duck in the soup is not fresh, it went bad. I wonder if they serve us the food that was cooked FIVE DAYS AGO.

“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.
