Wayne's review

Very good Thai food. Great location for University of Alabama students, but very limited parking. Luncheon specials are reasonably priced. Their is a coupon in Wednesday's Tuscaloosa news for a discount. It's not as good a deal now as it was a year or so ago, therefore I don't visit as often.

Have not been to Surin in a while- boy, it was a treat to be there for lunch. Both of us had different chicken dishes that were outstanding! The soup with the lunch special was very tasty and a good touch. Good portions, good value.. Service was very good. Will return more often.

It has been a long about 6 months sine we last went to Surin . I am happy to say that the food service is still outstanding. I am on low salt diet, steam order and do stir with sauce, They can still make it spicy with out salt.

Decided to go here at the end of self guided tour of the campus on Black Friday. The place was empty when we arrived around 430pm but filled up while we were there. We ordered spring rolls and coconut soup, both were very good. We also got the crunch sushi and they were really good too. Service was excellent and... More

We dined at Surin while visiting family in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Having been to Thailand on vacation, I can attest to the authenticity of dishes served. The menu has a wide variety of selections, the servers are attentive and food delicious. The restaurant will also make every effort to modify dishes to meet dietary requests. If one orders an alcoholic beverage,... More

Don't let the menu scare you. This place serves up some very good Thai/Oriental cuisine. Try the sushi selection-with the wasabi for starters. My son and I ordered two sushi selections and chicken and broccoli. We left overfilled. Always a good time going down in the Surin.

Good food, good pricing and good student, friend group, family atmosphere. Truly nestled on the campus of the University of Alabama's strip. The flavor makes you keep going back.

You can go for lunch or dinner, the atmosphere adjusts. The food has excellent taste and the menu covers all dietary preferences. Try something different every time.

Had a date night with hubby and it was great. The coconut tofu soup was to die for. I throughly enjoyed my sushi sashimi combo. Hubby said his was good but a little sweet for his liking.... I can't remember the name but it was a shrimp with a peanut sauce. We will be back for sure
