Suki’s Wok is one of the oldies when it comes to Chinese eateries in Colombo. Nowadays they’re mostly into delivery, so we tried it, and they’re okay.
The menu at Suki’s is pretty standard in both selection and prices with fried rice portions ranging between Rs. 500 – Rs. 600 and other dishes between Rs. 400 – Rs. 900. We’ve tried their set menus in the past and they were decent, so this time around we went for their regular dishes.
The mixed fried rice (Rs. 600) comes in a large portions that’s enough for 3-4 people, which is a pretty good deal. It comes with a good amount of prawns, chicken and beef and the seasoning was on point. This one was definitely worth the money.
Their chilli chicken (Rs. 580) was sadly not up to par. The two main problems here was that the chicken was overcooked and the ratio of salt to chilli was way off. So what we ended up tasting was a lot of chilli but not much else in terms of flavour. The portion size was also pretty small.
The hot butter cuttlefish (Rs. 660) was decent but not the best we’ve had. In terms of flavour, it fared pretty well, but the let down was that the cuttlefish was slightly rubbery and lacked the crunch you’d expect.
The best of the dishes was the pork with mushroom and cashews (Rs. 580). It’s prepared as a stir fry and the combination works brilliantly together. The portion size was also easily enough for three, which is another plus. What we didn’t quite understand was how this dish, which has cashews and a larger portion, costs the same as the chilli chicken.
Suki’s Wok isn’t amazing but when it comes to delivery they’re still decent. It’s definitely Sri Lankanized Chinese but that’s exactly the market that they look to cater to.
