It is always nice to have a restaurant that is predictable. Where you want to eat their food, and you go there, and you get exactly what you were expecting, wanting and hoping to get. That is Suwanna. It never disappoints and there are no nasty surprises. Atmosphere is nice, and service is good, and if you are a "regular"... More

I have only had good food here, no "up front paying" when I have visited. The staff have always been great and portions large enough for some in the party to take home. Not fine dining by any means but well worth it in my experience.

If you have eaten at a fine dinning restaurant outside of Saint John then you know this restaurant is not fine dinning. They use paper napkins and make you pay up front (just like humpty's and cora's do). I do not see why everyone raves about this place. The food was average and greasy and I have had much better...

My husband and I, along with two other couples, celebrated a birthday at Suwanna last night. Excellent atmosphere, food and service. Suwanna Chicken is always a favourite with this group, as is Pad Thai. Green Curry with chicken and another of same with Scallops, and a beef dish, the name of which I cannot remember rounded out the meal, with... More

This used to be our go to place. Always make a reservation. The seating area is actually a few rooms in the main floor of a home with a few tables in each. It is nice and quiet and perfectly lit for date night. We went once when there was a family with children - this is not a place... More

Dinner with friends at this staple of Saint John dining. The service was great and attentive to empty glasses or finished plates. We ordered pad thai + a few curry based dishes and were very pleased with the portion + quality. The wine list was far from extensive, but did the trick nicely. The restaurant is on the West Side...

We went to Suwanna Restaurant for dinner this evening with our close friends. Service was excellent, food was excellent and we had an excellent time. Three "excellents" in the previous sentence......you get the picture! Excellent.
