Great dinner

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!

Great place to stare exploring taste. This Resturant is on edge of Alabama's campus and the beginning of historical downtown Tuscaloosa. The prices are amazing for the quality of the food. The menu draws the finest Tuscaloosa families from church and business lunch meetings firm downtown. The college students fill it up and keep us all young in this town.

Tuscaloosa locals know to come here for decent sushi (considering the distance from the coast) and delicious curries and soups. Always clean, always friendly, and consistently without a wait. The drinks are strong and worth the relative high prices. My Faves: Spicy Coconut Shrimp Soup*, Steamed potstickers, Chicken Panang, Super Crunch Roll *An absolute must During the weekends you can...

Once you opened the door, everyone is smiling and very accommodating. They make you feel so welcome and wanted. The place is very clean including, the service is prompt.
