A word from Suzy Wong's House of Yum
In the 1960 film by Ray Stark, The World of Suzie Wong tells the story of a love affair between an expatriate American architect in Hong Kong and Suzie Wong, a beautiful high-end prostitute.

In the film, east and west meet in Suzie's house of decadence. On Church Street, two worlds meld in a brothel of epicurean delight – Suzy Wong's House of Yum.

    I had been here for dinner before and it took almost an hour to get food on a slow night, so it took Drag Brunch to get me back. I am so glad we came. There were eleven of us and we had a fabulous time. Deception was the entertainment and she is so fun, friendly and beautiful too. Our waitress Pryal (I hope I got that right) kept our drinks full and she was very sweet. We will all definitely be back!

    The food was incredible, all 5 of us raved about our meals. The drinks were delicious….especially the fish bowl. We were there celebrating birthdays and had a blast! The performer was quite entertaining and very sweet to come to our table to chat with us. Would absolutely return and will urge all of my friends to check it out.

    1st - the food was (to our surprise) incredibly good. I got the fried rice bowl and my friend got Hong Kong Millionaire. The drag show was super fun, very good and not too much. What I mean by "not too much"... its really loud and pumping fun music. It would be annoying if it went that way all brunch long. The performance is every 30 minutes for about 5 minutes. Perfect! The 2 for 1 mimosas didn't hurt either! A great diverse crowd... many gray hairs as well as young people. We would go back for sure!

    Have been to Suzy Wong's quite a few times over the years. We went this past Friday and have to say the whole experience was dissapointing. Our server was scatter brained and forgetful. We ordered five items from the menu and the only one we could eat was the Nachos. The steak skewers were not teriyaki, chicken wings were burnt and the breading awful, sweet and sour chicken barely edible, and the coconut fried rice, a glutinous mess that was way to spicy ( was blowing chile flakes out of my mouth half the night). All the food was way to salty. Maybe it was a bad day in the kitchen. Or maybe someone needs to be checking on what's coming out of their kitchen.

    Yes it can get loud but it is not just brunch it's a show so it is to be expected. The entertainment is in "rounds" so it quiets down some in between but honestly if you are looking for a nice quiet brunch spot this isn't it. If you're looking for a fun place with great entertainment, great drink specials and wonderful brunch fare with unique food offerings this is your place! Loved it and will definitely go again!

    The tapas plates were all really good; we had a party of 10 and ordered 5 or 6 different plates. All of the bowls that we ordered were just OK. None of them were BAD just not very good. Those that ordered cocktails seemed to like those. If you decide to go, stick with the tapas.

    I tried this place once for dinner, wasn't impressed. I tried it for brunch and I was less impress. The food is subpar compared to other brunch spots. Service was extremely slow. There is no reason I should be at a restaurant for 2.5 hrs. My waffle was over cooked dried out and just crumbled. The chicken looked anorexic and had no flavor beside the syrup I poured on it. The bacon could break a tooth off it was so hard. I gave it two tries and I won't be back

    Usually Suzy Wong's is wonderful. But they were having a bad night when we went this weekend. Half of the table's drinks came and the other people didn't get their drinks for 20 more minutes. Then half the food came and they forgot the rest of the order. Then the other half of the food came and my friend's soup was cold. She sent it back and it came back just as cold. All of our napkins were dirty too. I have always loved this restaurant but nothing went right this night. I can only hope it was just not a good night for the kitchen or the bar and that it will be up to par again next time.

    We have been visiting Suzy Wong's occasionally over several years. The food is always excellent, interesting and reasonably priced. This week was a little quieter than I would have expected on a Friday evening, and the night in October was to chilly to sit outside (the patio is nice on good weather days. Will continue to visit and enjoy the food, worth the drive from the suburbs.

    This past weekend 5 of my friends flew into Nashville for a wedding. The morning after the wedding we wanted to do something fun together before everyone had to go to the airport, so I made reservations at Suzy Wongs House of Yum. Needless to say, we were NOT disappointed! Our server was one of the best I've had in Nashville. The drag shows were wonderful too! Going into it I wasn't sure what to expect, but the shows were spaced out about 20 minutes apart (only lasting 1-2 songs) so to me it was a great mix of being entertained while also having time to catch up with friends. Additionally, we all ordered a different entree and we all enjoyed our food. I am definitely planning to return!

    We invited 3 friends to meet Suzy on a Sunday. We were a party of 5 in the early evening and the restaurant was slow. The waiter introduced himself and told us it was his third day - unfortunately it should have been his last day. The service was the slowest and worst I have experienced in Nashville. Drink orders were incorrect, the bartender was blamed, the bartender blamed the waiter (bla bla) -- orders trickled out over a period of 10 minutes -- we had 5 appetizers which were actually good. Next, the main courses also trickled out over 10 minutes - Dirty items were only removed from the table when we asked and piles of dirty items remained on the table throughout dinner. Never saw a manager, incorrect orders were not comped or corrected.

If you visit this restaurant,do share it with others,the dishes are large, two of us(older men) over ordered,all the dishes we ordered were tasty,creative & looked so appetizing on the plate,we just couldn't eat it all. A small party would have the opportunity to taste more of the these superb dishes.

    The music was a little loud for my tastes but you could still converse with your friends. The entertainer was full of energy and made the visit very enjoyable. To my surprise there were some folks who brought along their 6 year old - 10 ten year old kids and that is a good thing. Best to learn tolerance early. Took my fair share of photos as did everyone else so expect that to occur. The entertainer sings and dances for tips so bring a supply of $1 & $5 bills. She was kind enuff to pose with folks for photos. The wait staff can change bills for you. The meal and drinks are affordable. We spent $73 for three of us Lots of parking in the rear and if you go early enuff plenty on Church St. Staff was top notch in service and demeanor.

    Our server was attentive and pleasant. The specialty cocktails were excellent. Our table tried 3 different ones and all were great. We also enjoyed the shared small plates and found the unique spins on Asian dishes quite interesting. My big disappointment, however, was the heavy reliance on fried foods. My friend's Caesar salad was also drowning in dressing. I felt like I had eaten pub food by the time we finished. I took a bite of my friend's dessert and it was excellent.

    This is not your traditional Sunday Brunch spot and that's exactly why I LOVED IT!! We had a small group and everyone ordered something different so we could try as much as we could. Not only is the food AMAZING but when you add 2 for 1 mimosas and a fantastic live Drag Show while you eat - come on...why am I not here every Sunday?!?

    We met a few friends at Suzy's and none of us had ever eaten there before. We basically ordered what the server recommended and were not disappointed. We all shared small plates and everything we tasted was good. We went early in the evening, so it was relaxed and peaceful and we' had our server's full attention. We will definitely go back!

    I was very disappointed with this restaurant from start (reservation system faulty and frustrating), to the welcome (unfriendly hostess, no smile, no charm, no apology for poor reservation I told her about), to dining experience. It took the server 15 minutes to get to our table, another 15 to bring our drinks, and another 40 to bring our food. I had to continually ask the hostess to find him. When the food finally arrived, it was not warm enough, so it took another 15 minutes to get that taken care of. Paying the check experience: you guessed it. After waiting another 15 minutes, we had to once again get the hostess to search for our waiter. AND ALL THIS ON A NIGHT WHEN THERE WERE FEW CUSTOMERS.

The singer/impersonator was not good at all so don't go for the entertainment. Food was good but not great.

    We really enjoyed the Kung Pao green beans and Lemongrass soup! Interesting flavors, and is somewhere we will go again. They have small tapas style plates as well as larger bowls from which to select. Not really the place for a tight budget, but not extravagantly expensive either.

    I have loved Suzy Wong's ever since it opened, although I will admit that with all the new restaurants opening in Nashville, it's been a while since I've been here. I dined recently on a Thursday evening and the only disappointing aspect was the crowd, or lack thereof. The food was like it's always been....creative, fresh, excellent. We usually just order random things, mostly from the Shared Plates menu, and have never been disappointed in any way. I hope the small crowd that Thursday was an anomaly, as Suzy Wong's deserves to be supported so it sticks around for many more years. I'll be going more often, that's for sure.
