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

This past Saturday evening, my husband and I made up a table for six at Suwanna. We have dined at Suwanna on many occasions as it is the favourite restaurant of the friends with whom we dine out the most. We have never had a bad meal at Suwanna, however, this past Saturday evening was, without a doubt, the BEST... More

I went last night with a group, and it was my second time at this establishment. It was absolutely FREEZING cold, which I found both times, and there is nothing that the wait staff can do. Be prepared to dine with your parka. I also have several food allergies, and the waitress was working with the chef and I to... More

My client took me for dinner and I was pleasantly surprised. When we arrived, we were the only guests. They explained it was usually full and it became more busy shortly after our arrival. Living in Toronto, there are several excellent Thai restaurants and I've also been to Thailand on a few occasions so I can say with confidence that... More

Been here a few times now and I've not yet been disappointed. Food is wonderfully flavorful and service is always great. I love the house which the restaurant is in. It adds so much character.

Susanna restaurant is currently ranked number one in St. John. Why? The building in which the restaurant is located is a large old residence, converted into a restaurant. That could be charming, but in this case it's just shabby. Granted, there was a group using the main dining room. Still, when you enter you notice peeling paint and get a... More

I had another great tip to Suwanna last night with 10 other people and everyone enjoyed there meals. We had the appetizer combo which you have to ask for as I believe it is not on the menu. It is $9 per person and everyone gets to try 4 different appetizers including their famous carrot and cabbage salad. I had... More
