This place use to be the best place a few years ago. I would not advice anyone to go there now. It is overly priced, very loud and crowded.

been to the "BM" in new distirct many times.
the blue marlin in SND with its newly decoration is a nice and cosy place to hang out and grab a "western" bite or have some cold beers!
tried most of the dishes and found not much to complain about although it isnt the best restaurant in town it is still a great place and the food quality is alright.
on fridays they have live music which is very nice and appreciated from most customers there.
it is indeed a typical ex-pat bar but also has lots of local customers nowadays.
they have a pool table for free and cheap prices during the happy hour.
the service depends on the person in charge, sometimes things are just getting lost in translation but never rude or really bad!a big thumbs for Tommy the Manager of the SND Blue Marlin! very helpful guy always nice and speaks good english!
all in all i highly recommend the "BM" for people who are looking for other ex-pats or for friends who just want to enjoy some beers and food.

The Blue Marlin is an ex-pat haven in Suzhou. The food is good, and they have a very grand and eclectic collection. It's one of the few places in Suzhou to get a good salad. The people that go there are mainly business people (a lot of Germans) who are unhappy about working in China and want a place that reminds them of home. This place is it, but it can do without the complaining clientele!

Only had a couple of beers here on a Saturday night during this visit. Decent band. Lots of Westerners. A bit smoky, though. It was fun watching the pool table action.

Had a steak dinner here in March of 2012. It was tasty.

Well worth a visit. Typical expats bar, good selection of beer and shots. They do some great deals during Happy Hour and run themed evenings…cocktails/Jagerbombs etc. You get the picture. The restaurant offers a wide range of "western" food aswell as some local dishes. Reasonable prices. Good outdoor seating area .
