We used to love coming to suki thai for years, especially with the all you can eat buffet, but that was cancelled for kids, causing tears and a first let down. Something that might be chicken, I hope it was, in my chow mein..... My...suspicion was confirmed when runny tummy followed. Processed soft something resembling chicken but was not! Pilchards in sushi-did not know it was even possible. Will not return, it's unfortunate because there is no family budget sushi places worth going to in Stellenbosch....More

Craving thai food, visited Suki, a limited option in dodgy area of Stellenbosch. Did not feel comfortable leaving car parked in dodgy area with beggers and suspects around. Ordered wine from limited menu clearly sponsored by mega corporates like two oceans etc. Tom yum soup...flavor was not traditional but fine. However received 2 prawns in total with prawn option. Not great value. Ordered angry duck, hot, at R189! was terrible. No spice whatsoever, would not pass as mild. Complained to manager and brushed aside with "do you want chilly?" Terrible offering compared to restaurants in Somerset west, Cape town. Don't consider Suki as an option if you love Thai food. Totally crap experienceMore

Not the fanciest or best, but definitely good service and value for money. Especially if you go for the “All you can eat”.

Never judge a book by its cover ...... Despite some interesting decor I was not at all optimistic about the food here . The welcome was friendly & I felt welcome. The sushi was great . My angry beef was outstanding. The service continued to...be great . The previous evening we had been to Spek & Bone ( a SA celebrity chef apparently) this was a much better experience.More

Daughter's birthday, she loves sushi, so a new place for us in an early evening. Ambiance low, just doesn't look attractive, though it seems clean....Bare tables does that! Popular with Stellenbosch students especially. Music not good, loud and modern.... overall, a turnoff! Service was good,...attentive staff, better than the manager! Sushi was very good, daughter loved her platter. Jenny's salmon was good and I enjoyed the Angry Beef. ….. but the place just did not seem, Thai, or Japanese, just basic Chinese. Nice enough winelist and not too pricy. Would we go again..... as a take-out, yes.... as a lunch time quick meal, probably yes..... for the evening, nope.... there are too many other places around serving quality food in much better surroundings.More
