Consistently great food!

Never have had a bad dish in 15 years! This is the go-to place to get away from fast food. Authentic Thai with some variations in their recipes. Business lunch or family dinner this place is prepared to serve and the repeat business speaks to that end. Their are literally 20 different places to... read more

Good Americanized Thai food. Not super authentic as far as the dishes go, but still very good. Their sushi is also very good. We have not had anything that is bad here. There surin baskets are very good appetizers

Good service and food within a few blocks from the Hassinger Daniels Mansion B&B. This area provides 40+ restaurants as well as historical churches, landmarks and even a JewishTemple.

No one does Thai food better in Birmingham. Consistent, affordable, good, prompt service. If you want Thai, come here. I eat at the Surin 280 location and Surin West on a regular basis, and they are consistent. The food is always tasty and you will never walk away hungry. I almost always carry a doggy bag home to enjoy later.

My husband and I went for a weeknight dinner last week. We ordered the Crab Angels for our appetizer and I ordered the Nam Tok beef for my dinner. I always order those two things...always. But it has been at least 10 years since we've eaten at Surin. Nothing's changed. It is still a great place for Thai food. My... More

The setting is nice and the service is prompt and appropriate. However, the food at this restaurant rarely meets the quality that is available in near-by Atlanta. After eating at Surin, I usually say to myself I should have waited until I had the opportunity to go to Atlanta to get my Thai craving satisfied.. The Thai noodle dish is... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Birmingham! Even if you don't think you like Thai food give it a try. The spicy beef salad is awesome and my go to dish. Also the egg rolls and crab angels are great appetizers. If you want dessert try the brownie. It's delicious. The restaurant closes briefly after lunch and reopens for dinner... More

Conveniently located in 5 points area. We were into eating Thai as there is a shortage of decent Thai in NE TN. Ate here for lunch and it was very good. Highly recommend

Ordered the eggplant noodle bowl, my favorite. I asked for Thai hot, waiter would not serve it to me that way as many other customers send food back. I assured him I would not. My food was maybe 4/10 hot, however he did bring 2 spicy condiments. The dish was delicious, but I was very tempted to send it back... More

I work near this restaurant, and I often have lunch there. I love their "BBQ Thai Chicken." So tender, juicy, and perfectly cooked. Portions are good for lunch, given I'm a hearty eater. Atmosphere is perfect for quality lunch time with your co-workers or if you're stopping by for business in the area.
