You can never go wrong with Suki Thai when you are looking to have good sushi in Stellenbosch. The sushi is spot on everytime. The only letdown to me is the restrooms which is not up to standard and the location. Central but situated across from an aesthetically unpleasing parking lot. But if you can look past this (or sit inside the restaurant), be ready to enjoy some of the best sushi in town.

We went to Suki Thai twice in one week (once for lunch and once for dinner) in one week. Both times, the sushi was splendid - fresh and flavourful, as we have come to expect. However, the service on both occasions was below par, and worse during the less busy lunch time. During the lunch time service we were never asked if we wanted more drinks and could see our food waiting to be picked up while our waiter conversed with other staff and stood around. Another waitress was also constantly shouting and being obnoxious with the other staff. During the dinner visit our waiter was more on the ball (assuming because he has been there longer), but still tended to be forgetful at times. We will always go back because the sushi is by far the best in the area and worth the money, but the service definitely needs work.

My wife soup was so terrible she couldn't finish it. I could not even finish it on her behalf (and that type of soup is my favourite food). We waited very long for our drinks and never even had the opportunity to ask for second round of drinks. The restaurant was extremely hot (on a rather mild day), I assume their airconditioner was broken although it's light was on.

We sat at the sushi conveyer belt because we were in a hurry to get food (food there is already prepared). There you have a choice of either individual plates or the buffet (eat as much as you like). We opted for the individual plates because we had children who won't be able to eat R129 worth of sushi from the buffet.
There was hardly any plates available that weren't part of the buffet. Once we finished the few individual plates there were no others that were forthcoming and we ended up without enough food!
We also saw a fly underneath one of the plate covers.

The bit of sushi that we had tasted ok but I had to force myself to ignore the plates that were dirty.

What a terrible experience! (I am not sure what all the students are doing there because the food isn't cheap!).

We went on the hottest day in Stellenbosch this year in search of a very spicy curry ? Mad I hear you say, but you gotta go when you gotta go.
This is a student orientated clientele, however they are better behaved here than in the UK, at least on a Sunday.
There was Sushi galore on the menu and on all the tables in this very busy restaurant. However we were not tempted and stuck to Thai. A red curry was served searingly hot as ordered with better quality beef than we would typically get at home, and the pad Thai noodles with prawns was also top drawer. Service was a bit slow, but the food was definitely worth the wait, highly recommend but very casual

Sushi here is amazing and at the best prices that you will find in Stellenbosch.

Service is average but the food makes up for that.
The other food on the menu such as curries and spring rolls are also wonderful for those that don't eat sushi.
Got some lovely cocktails too!
