Back to Summer School

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

Ate there Saturday evening. The restaurant was very busy, but the service was excellent and efficient. We had Shrimp Masaman. It was outstanding. I would also recommend the Lichi Martini. Will definitely go back!

Atmosphere is very nice. Waiter was very attentive and informative. Some of the best Thai food I have ever eaten. Sushi was very good as well. We will return!

I'm not sure what happened to Surin. Maybe they just got lazy. Instead of real Thai food with its layers of spices and flavors, they now serve food that seems to come from a mix. The masaman, for instance, is now meat + a heavy, very sweet peanutbuttery sauce with a little avocado on the side. A real disappointment.

Surin looks from the street like an old white house. However, step inside to get authentic Thai cuisine at a moderate price. Their food is delicious. If you are new to Thai, ask one of the waitstaff to recommend a meal. If you have room, their homemade coconut ice cream is to die for. Enjoy!
