We were traveling with a group and our Innkeeper (and fellow traveler) recommended Suwanna. We don't eat Thai food very often but this is among the best I've had. Our waiter was very attentive and managed to keep track of who ordered which meal - not easy when you are a party of 18!

Meal was tasty and portion was good except I ordered Spicy Pork and got a plate full of onions and peppers with a pile of white rice and not enough pork in there to even be able to distinguish it form the veggies. The appetizer was awesome in taste as well, it was the Satay Chicken, however I would be... More

Great view by reversing falls. Went with my parents and the portion sizes were huge. Each dish had a different, unique taste. The green and red Thai curries were fantastic. Will definitely be back again.

We have been going here for over a decade- the food is some of the best in NB- for starters the soups and Popia and for mains - the Green Curry with beef and the Massaman curry are super dishes. Also have to save room for the Eugenie. One drawback is the wine list- one suggestion would be a pile... More

I love Suwanna and it's easily my favourite restaurant in NB. We travel from Fredericton a couple times each year just to go. We order: massaman curry, red curry, dragon eggplant, cashew chicken, and pad Thai often. Other curries and dishes are great. This is a great place to go with a group, order a bunch of dishes, and share.... More

I would rate this venue as one of the better Thai style restaurants in SJ. Their food is consistently good and the service is good as well, at least during our business meetings. Will happily go back.

I've eaten at Suwanna's many times over the years, and I've never left disappointed. The portions are large, they'll give you as much rice as you need to finish, the food is exquisite, the wait-staff professional and well-informed, the wine list is huge, the ambiance is quaint and old-fashioned, the prices are reasonable for this sort of dining experience... the...

We were there Feb 27...we were a party of 12 and for most of us it was our first time. The service and namely the food did not disappoint. Most of us ordered different dishes from the menu and everything was simply delicious. I am sorry it took us so long to try it. We will be back and soon!!

My co-workers in Fredericton told me that Suwanna is a must when visiting Saint John. So when we next went to Saint John, we visited and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent, the location was scenic, and the historical house made for great ambiance! I think the server was one of the most helpful and genuinely friendly servers... More

I have only visited this restaurant once. I told my server that I was vegan, and the chef was consulted. Special arrangements were made. The food was outstanding. The service was excellent. I remember more than one of the staff members coming out to make sure that I was pleased. Well beyond the regular Saint John dining experience.
