Demand Surin West!!!!

I ventured into Surin West for the first time many years ago. Time and time again, I keep coming back. I have family that lives in Birmingham, AL and every time I visit I demand at least one trip to Surin. I joke (a truth joke) that the more times I eat at Surin in the visit the quicker I... read more

Surin West is one of my favorite places to eat in Birmingham. Their food is so light you can eat a ton of it and did I mention how good it is? Everything is fresh and has the best flavors. The staff is helpful and kind. This place is a great dinning experience.

Last night in town so I didn't want carryout. I love Thai, but my family doesn't so I get it when I'm traveling. Surin West was highly rated with good reason. A nice restaurant in downtown area of Birmingham amongst many eateries. Parking is tough. Food was delicious with huge portions. I recommend the Spicy Beef Noodle. Reasonably priced. Full... More

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!!
