Susanna has been acknowledged as one of the best Chinese chefs in the country by USA Today and hailed as an innovator by Gourmet, Food & Wine, Esquire and The New York Times. With two cookbooks and two James Beard Awards, Foo is highly decorated in the food world and knows that altering the ordinary is the key to success.
This is her first restaurant, with her son, Gabriel Foo, a true connoisseur of gourmet food and wine.
Susanna Foo’s influences are derived from her upbringing in Taiwan, and her training at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y. “Modern Chinese” is the fusion of classical Chinese and fresh Western ingredients with Foo’s signature French style of cooking.
The restaurant is closed for remodeling. How is it that reservations are still made and worse yet confirmed on the app?
The restaurant was closed for “renovations” and apparently did not inform Open Table
OPEN table failed to say that the restaurant is closed for renovations! Went there and it was closed
I am giving this review because 4 of us drove an hour to eat at this restaurant and were quite excited. When we got there the sign that was posted in Philly said under renovation. I was confirmed through Open Table so I was surprised it was closed. Either the restaurant didn't inform Open Table or Open Table didn't inform me. We were all very disappointed and had to look for something else quickly since we had plans for later in the evening.
Open table took the reservation but when we arrived at the restaurant it was closed for renovation.
PS it was raining very hard and we got soaking wet!!! July 11
They closed without notifying open table
The restaurant is closed for renovations until August 1. There was a notice on the door, but no update on the website nor did Open table give me notice.
I was supposed to meet a client there and instead we had to go to the Korean bbq place next door...which was great, but embarrassing for me...
We would especially like to commend the young hostess on duty for lunch on June 28. She went out of her way to accommodate us, to find the right table and to insure our pleasure, the first such achiever in my many Suga visits. Food excellent, prices right, always a treat. Please share my views with Mrs. Foo and Gabriel.
Please don't close. I love this restaurant! The food is always consistently good. Great place for lunch. Fast service and quiet enough for a meeting.
We popped in at 9pm on a whim and were so thrilled. The cilantro chicken was just amazing, the frothy cocktails were perfect and the service was friendly. It felt like a romantic date night vs a “rainy Tuesday” The food was so flavorful and everything tasted so fresh and healthy vs heavy...really good spot.
Although it lacks the elegance and imagination of the original Susanna Foo's restaurant, SuGa is definitely a step, probably two steps above the standard Chinese restaurant. The four of us ate dinner early, 6:15, and in the quiet back room of the restaurant, conversation was easy.
We especially enjoyed the dumpling sampler for two, the cumin Mongolian lamb and the honey cashew chicken.
Excellent menu, many choices, everything is delicious. Very attentive server. Late lunch, not loud. Enjoyed it a lot and will return and recommend it to friends.
Dependably good and unique Asian-inspired offerings
Excellent everything at this new Susannah Foo restaurant.
This *was* a vegan-friendly restaurant when it opened. Now it seems as though there are fewer vegan options (mayb 5 options on the entire menu). The only vegan protein was fried tofu. Not very creative. The Spicy Guacamole we ordered was not spicy. The Wild Mushroom Dumplings did not taste good and my husband and I didn't finish them even though we were still hungry. The only dish we really liked was the Lentil, Ferro, Brown Rice Bowl - great flavors. We won't be returning until/unless they make some changes.
The menu was great and the service was attentive, however the food was not up to par. The dumplings were good but the honey cashew chicken was over diced and difficult to eat with chop sticks. My stomach did not appreciate the food.
SUGA never disappoints. The food is always delicious — Heirloom tomato salad, mushroom dumplings, eggplant, lobster rice. Every single dish was perfection! Excellent service, as always.
This was our second time there and the food was wonderful as before. We enjoy the opportunity to be able to talk and hear one another as dining should be. (This is unlike many good restaurants now a days that seem to try to have loud background noise/music.) Our server was knowlegeable, very pleasant and helpful. Overall good experience and we will be back.
Love this place. My friend and I went for happy hour before seeing a show at the Academy of Music and ordered some small plates from the menu. Food was very good. Service was excellent and courteous, coming up and asking us if we wanted to order anything more before the happy hour was over. Ambiance was excellent and noise level is quiet despite all the activity outside. Highly recommend to anyone.
Went to Suga for dinner before going to theater. There were eight of us and they put us in an area just for us, which was really nice. Waitstaff very helpful, making sure we would be finished in time for the theater. The food was good; we ordered a few dishes to share, but as the portions were quite small we had to order more.
A delightful experience which included artistic cocktails and flavorful entrees. Each person chose an entree and then we decided to put each one in the center of the table and share them. That was fun!
The food was delicious as always. I love the duck salad. The service was a bit slow. The restaurant was very loud at lunch time. People talk loudly and there is no fabric to absorb the sound. Still, it's a very good lunch and I will return again.
There brunch menu was tiny and disappointing. I ordered one of the 5 options and they took 10 minutes or more to figure out they didn’t have bacon so I couldn’t have it. We were literally the only table in the restaurant so the delay made no sense. Got a brunch bento box instead and serving size was tiny. Food was super mediocre.
We had a variety of dishes and everything was excellent! I love Susanna Foo!
Nice one on one atmosphere. Great service. Amazing food. Serving portions could be a little larger.
Not my first time ordering the crispy bronzino and certainly not my last. A most amazing dish. It took a long time for the entree to be served on this occasion but that was unusual. They also have a cocktail with dragon in the name that carries quite a heat punch and is also delicious.
My dining partner was the one who suggested eating here. The food is tasty and well prepared. Service was very accommodating.
Our experience was an outstanding one and we will return in the near future.
Great experience. Second time at Suga and I will be back again. The food is fresh and not heavy. Love it.
Off the beaten path of restaurants in center city
Great ambiance/interiors tasty food/ delicate food
Would recommend warmly
Lovely food. Soup, goats cheese dumplings, cauliflower, whole fish.
Very friendly staff, delicious food, wonderful ambiance for intimate Mother’s Day brunch.
Delicious and varied vegan options! We really enjoyed our dinner. Nice ambiance as well.
The food was pretty good. To be honest, I doubt I’ll be back however as I’ve had similar dishes I’ve enjoyed more of other restaurants.
Delicious, fresh, tasty food and good service. But if you add on a few drinks, the bill grows rapidly.
Fabulous meal and very good scallion pancakes. Great duck and very tasty chicken. All and all a great restaunt experience if you’re looking to just have a nice night out
The vegan Dan Dan was very good. The salmon was perfectly cooked. The dumplings were okay and the vegan bao bun was not seasoned. Our server was very pleasant, but needed more training. Dessert was okay.
Good for a small low noise level so can talk food for sharing. Very tasty
We went for the Philly Vegan Restaurant week prix-fixe menu, which was disappointing. Some dishes were delicious (like the fried-tofu/avocado amuse-bouche and the Dan Dan noodles), but others were lackluster. We also waited a long time before and in between courses--we were told there was a backup in the kitchen, but other diners around us who arrived later received their food before we did, and our server seemed very distracted by another, larger party.
