Amazing Eastern Cusine

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.

Best chicken fried rice and crab wontons in America. They also have one in Tuscaloosa. It is the BEST! Tip. Get extra sauce on the side for the wontons...it's great on the rice. Staff is friendly, great for date night or carry out! We do both!!

This is a great restaurant for delicious Thai food. We had a wonderful weekend lunch here of Coconut Soup, Chicken Massaman Curry and Chicken Pad-See-U. The food was fresh and hot and the service was good. One little surprise was their delicious sweet tea. Very nice contrast to the mildly spicy cuisine. I would definitely return here the next time...

We had awhile to kill at Five Points and decided to give Surin West a try. We were seated immediately our server must have had her personality completely scrubbed. She barely spoke, gave us the minimal of service and when my husband ordered the Beef Noodle Bowl, (soup), she didn't leave him a spoon. He asked for one and when... More

If you like Thai food, this place it tops. The Thai barbecue chicken, chicken noodle bowl, wing of angel and the Island martini's are my favorites. The sushi is also some of the best I've eaten.

I have been eating at Surin West for four years. It is consistently fantastic. Great food for the money. Parking is difficult, but the food is worth the trouble.

I have eaten at Surin West for years. It is a wonderful restaurant. The sushi is always fresh and the entrees are delicious and creative. The roasted duck is to die for!!! Also, the desserts are awesome. The peanut butter pie and creme brule rock. I am never disappointed.

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... More
