Food is always prepared and served in excellent way. Very attentive wait staff and friendly confines. Parking an issue due to poor parking management in the entire southside area.

I normally frequent Surin West. I can't speak to their other locations. It is my favorite destination for lunch or dinner when meeting friends. I've tried many items and have never been disappointed. My "go to" dish is an appetizer Pot Stickers with Red Curry. Sometimes I'll get two orders for dinner. I've never seen this item on a menu... More

The sushi was good. The spicy beef salad was good. The coconut shrimp soup, however, was incredible--I am dreaming about it right now as I am writing. My only regret about the restaurant is that I don't live in town and can't run over right now to get a bowl of it! I am a big fan of southeast Asian... More

This is one of my favorite places for lunch. The service is fast and friendly. The BBQ Chicken is killer! I'm not a big sushi fan but what I've tried there was pretty good. And you must get the Crab Angels! Writing this review is making me want to go there for lunch tomorrow!

Very good place for Sushi and Fried Catfish. Friendly staff that provides good service. I am not a big alcohol drinker but my friends were really impressed with the martinees. Good place to go with a bunch of friends.

Surin is always great! My go to dish is the thai barbecue chicken. I don't think you can beat the price for such a delicious and large dish!

Surin is our favorite Thai restaurant. We went after a Concert at UAB and were promptly seated. Our server, Lauren greeted us quickly and recommended the appetizer special, a salmon larb, which was made of pieces of grilled salmon , basil ,cilantro and a few thin slices of red onions all in a light spicy sauce. It was served with... More
