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.

    Took a group out for girls night. It was the first time for all of us. Alex, our waiter, was so kind and patient! He made great recommendations and knew every answer to the menu questions from my gluten-free vegan friend. There was nothing we didn't like - food or drink! This place is a "must go"!

    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.

    First visit to this delightful restaurant & certainly enjoyed the experience. 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!

    Dined on 6/30/2014
    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.

    we had pretty bad service, waitress was nice but our party of 6's food came out 1 at a time about every 5 minutes so almost 30 minutes from first to last served! the area we sat was FREEEZING cold- front room. 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.

    Suzy Wong's is one of my favorite eating spots in the downtown Nashville area. Located on Church Street, neighbored by Tribe and PLAY, this small tapas-style restaurant serves wonderful food paired with great designer cocktails and exceptional service! My date and I ordered drinks, a few small plates, and also had dessert; nothing was less than delicious. The only drawback on this particular visit was the noise level as it got a little busier in the main dining area. My OpenTable reservation, with a booth-specific request, was honored without a hitch; we were seated immediately. I would most definitely go back to Suzy Wong's again and also recommend it to friends, family, AND strangers!

    This was our first time at Suzy Wong's. We knew it was an Arnold Myint place, but we were really blown away by the quality of the food. Every dish was amazing. We shared two appetizers, each got an entree, and shared a side (Kung Pao green beans). We will definitely be going back. Also, the service was very good. Our server was very friendly and helpful.

    My only complaint was that the server recommended a dish to my friends who had never eaten there before and the way she described a dish was not the way it came to the table. She was very sweet and immediately put a new order in for them, but we were almost finished with our dinner by the time their dish came back out.

  • Kitschy Name... Lousy Experience
    mindtonic
    Dined on 5/12/2014
    Meh.... This place wants to be from Brooklyn so bad it's scary. The problem is that it's in Nashville. Bumping electronic music is cool and all but it can't mask the smell of a barely clean dining room. I felt like every room had its own stench. The food was not brilliant by any stretch of the imagination. The coconut curry soup tasted like water; it lacked the depth of flavor I was expecting. The beef with broccoli was the standout at our table. If you want RICE with your meal, be prepared to pay an extra $2.50 for half a cup of over cooked soggy rice. I'm always up for trying new things, but this place is more bark than bite. A kitschy name will only get you so far.

    Suzy Wong's is a gem. I chose to go there to celebrate Mother's Day. The food, although moderately priced, is exquisite and unique. My bloody mary was zesty and perfectly prepared. I had a new item, chicken florentine crepes, my husband had Suzy's sweet waffle. About the food, words fail me, and I must simply use the vernacular, "Amazing!" And then there's the entertainment, from time to time when beautiful young "women" walk through singing and/or dancing. Divine! Suzy Wong's is my new favorite place to go. If you haven't yet been, you are missing a treat!

    What can I say....wanted to give this place a try many time before....finally ended up going there Mother's Day for the "Drag-on Brunch". Wow what energy and vibe. We were blown alway. The choice of food was limited to few dishes which was totally fine (probably because of Mother's Day and it being a brunch)....we ordered 4 dishes which were yum. The entertainment (Drag Queen performances) was a short dance every hour. The artist was gorgeous and eager to interact and please. Overall a uniquely delightful experience.

    I took my mom to Suzy Wong's Drag N' Brunch for Mother's Day & I could not be more pleased with the result. They were very accommodating of my special request when making the reservation (my mother has mobility issues), so when we arrived everything was already set up for her & we were ready to roll. Service was prompt, BEYOND friendly & attentive (Jordan is a treasure sent from Heaven) & the food was delicious. (Steak Benedict FTW!) And while I have to say I took advantage of the 2-for-1 mimosas, I have to go back & investigate the punch that comes in a fishbowl with 2 giant straws... The drag show was great! 2 songs every 30 minutes of sparkling, kinetic, pop-music joy flitting around the room. Highly recommend to people who like fun.
