I was a big fan of Suwanna years ago. It was probably the best Thai restaurant in SJ (or even in the area) back then. We were in SJ a few days ago and decided to pay a visit. The restaurant is located inside an old Victorian house, which adds character and charm. I still like the setting there, and... More

These folks go above and beyond to give you a fine dining experience. I certainly recommend going with a group as portions are huge and should be shared. We went and each ordered one entree and then shared amongst ourselves and still had left overs. Ask your servers for suggestions. We did and were really impressed. Some of the dishes... More

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
