For decades the best Thai served in Birmingham. I love their Spicy Shrimp Coconut Soup and Curry Chicken, neither of which is too spicy but filled with nuanced flavors. Not quite as romantic as it used to be, it will satisfy your Thai desire.

Ate at the 'West' location while passing through Birmingham on a family trip. We've eaten in dozens of Thai restaurants across the USA and Europe and this one is definitely in the top 5 !!! Had the Chicken Larb as an appetizer, which could have been an entree in itself, was very tasty treat. Ka Proud Lamb as an entree... More

We eat at Surin a lot and it's one of my fav restaurants. We love the coconut soup they bring out, and their super crunch sushi is my all-time favorite sushi anywhere!! My favorite entrée to get is the Chicken Masaman, cause it's more sweet than spicy. It has rice, cashews, chicken and some sort of peanut sauce that's great!!!

Nicely decorated, quiet, dim without being dark, and comfortable. Our service was very good, and the food was very good. The sushi seemed a little flat, but the entree was very satisfying.

Wonderful Thai food, great staff and location. We liked the Thai ginger coconut soup ( I had shrimp my friend had chicken) the best! Now that we are back in the Chicago area, we really miss it. The staff is delightful too!!

My wife and I heard the Surin West was very good so we tried it. It gets very busy so either go early or be prepared to wait. Between 5 PM & 7 PM appetizers are 1/2 price and we tried the eggs rolls which were very good in a mild sweet & sour sauce, crispy squid which were OK... More

I wasn't very impressed with the food. It was bland and the menu was strangely organized--they called Pad-Thai something like "National Thai Noodle Dish"...and I couldn't even find Thom Ka Gai soup on the menu.

I don't want to remember a time when I could not get Surin Thai food at one of 3 locations in Birmingham. For lunch I love a noodle bowl; for dinner Nam-sod has my vote. Crab angels are divine. Coconut soup is a favorite. Masaman curry is the best this side of heaven. Better go, I've made myself hungry.

My hband and I ate here for dinner. The apps were fresh and tasty. I had the basil veggie rolls and he had the chicken Larb, was very good. He had the lamb chops, perfectly done. I had the red curry with Chicken. It was creamy and had the exact right balance of spice and milk. I have eaten a... More
