“How bad service spoils good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Went there for lunch with some coworkers, ordered some thai noodles with shrimp and chicken (cant remember the name of plate) food in general was very good portions are very generous to be lunch specials! This is the first time i dine in I had previously ordered a couple of times to go, never disappointed. But for this first time dining in unfortunately the service was awful, i hope the service is not always like this because thats how good businesses go belly up. Waitress was very rude and unpleasant to top it off one of my coworkers had a hair in the soup... killed her appetite we called regarding this issue no apologies just took the soup back and brought (hopefully) another one, regardless my coworker didn't even want to look at the soup anymore.

“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I have passed by this restaurant almost every day for the past couple of years and have never bothered to go inside. Well, I'm glad I finally did and cannot believe it took me so long! The food was delicious! Their special fried rice is amazing, full of chicken, steak, everything! And I love their spring rolls as well, they taste just like the ones from Sushi Saki. They are also super friendly and very good with children. I definitely recommend.

“Good food clean decent atmosphere average service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

after reading the reviews we decided to try this restaurant it was close and convenient from my work, the main dining room is open and very well lit. the servers seemed in a hurry and disengaged not just with us but with all the other patrons, I read the review about the servers being rough yes they are but they are not rude and will answer questions and attend to requests. To start we ordered a glass with water a Perrier and a shrimp roll appetizer, we received a coke and a Perrier and the mistake was promptly corrected. And the appetizer arrived quick too.we ordered the main entrees volcano chicken with fried rice and chicken soup and kanisu. Volcano chicken arrived and the kanisu arrived 10 minutes later there is no sync between the sushi bar and the inside kitchen. Enough about service quality ,the food was very well prepared and presented, the Thai volcano chicken was thinly sliced and fried crisp, the basil chili sauce had the right amount of heat and enhanced the chicken very well, the shrimp rolls were a delight crispy and paired with a honey chili sauce were very good, the kanisu was good and abundant prepared by the book with the right ingredients and very well presented good not extraordinary. Will we return to suvi. Not to dine in we will return for take out as the service needs to be improved. Servers need to be trained in basic manners and in customer service. If you are willing to look past the service the food is good and fresh and it might be worth a try as the prices are very reasonable.
I added some pictures for your enjoyment.

“Good food but not a place to spend too much time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We were at Suvi Thai in April with friends who live in Miami.
The food is excellent but the set up makes you feel like you are in a "Diner" somewhere in a small town.

I had the Cocunut Shrimp appetizer and the beef teriyaki.
I found that there was almost no beef and lots of veggies. The cocunut shrimp were tasty.

Our friends ordered Spring Rolls and Chicken Teriyaki and it was regular. The gentleman that served was a good waiter but the two ladies were rather rough.

As said previously, the place is good for a simple meal but not if you want to make an evening out of it.

“Fabulous food even as takeout!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Staying @ the new Minola Ave Comfort Inn and caslled for takeout dinners. The location is 5 blocks west of the Hotel right on NW 36th street.The restaurant was busy, clean and family run. The menu is extensive and the food was on point. The red curry, Drunken noodles, JB roll, Dynamite roll, Sweet & sour shrimp were excellent. The use of fresh ingredients and spice made our in room experience fun.They provided the extras for the hotel room dinner such as flatware, chopsticks and fortune cookies. always best regards, brifro
