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...

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.

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone ! My family and I have eaten here 10+ times, mostly for special occasions and it is always delicious. The Suwanna Chicken is excellent and any of the curries, especially the Massaman Curry, are all delicious. I have Celiacs disease and the food is almost all gluten free so its really easy... More

I avoid eating out if at all possible since I have celiac and most places don't even know what gluten is. When I heard that Suwanna's has Gluten Free food, I though we'd give it a try. Turns out 95% of the menu is Gluten Free! Food was amazing our server was fantastic and knowledgeable regarding the gluten issue. Can't... More
