My wife and I take guests there a few time a year for the last twenty years. The food and service are always great. I have had the scallops several,times and they are excellent. My wife loves the chicken masaman.

Simply, excellent! I always start out with a big plate of Tuna sashimi and seaweed. Always fresh! Always great! Follow that with beef tataki. And pad kra prow. Forgive spelling😁 Also the drinks are nice and strong. Always a great experience!

Best Thai food in Birmingham. Don't miss the Pad See Ew with Shrimp and coconut shrimp soup! The Surin baskets are good too.

Food is good but too expensive for what it is. Soups were good, especially the one with with the coconut base.

I miss Surin West now that we do not live in Birmingham. We never had a bad meal, the service is awesome and it is priced reasonably. We tried so many items on the menu and they were all fresh, flavorful, and fantastic!

My sons & I have been going here for about 18 years. We love it. The food is superb. The atmosphere is relaxing. The service is really good. My favorites are the submarine roll, shrimp coconut soup, crispy squid, crab angels & the chocolate martini.

While traveling for business, I was searching for a place to eat. Came across Surin West, reviews were good. It had a decent crowd for a Tuesday night. Menu was typical of a Thai place, curry, noodles, and rice dishes. Opted for my usual, spicy basil chicken and a spicy tuna roll to start from the sushi menu. Super Excited!... More

Surin West has been a favorite of mine for many years. Working out of state most of the time means visiting fewer restaurants in Birmingham, but I always make sure to visit Surin West. If you're in town for business, sit at the bar and relax with amazing service. Food is excellent, and always a great atmosphere for meeting new... More

I have eaten my way through Surin's menu. While I personally like some things more than others, I have never had a bad meal here. Shrimp masaman is my favorite, but the sushi is really good too, and the service is usually excellent. My only complaint is parking nearby is always a hassle.

I've lived in Birmingham my entire life and this is one of my favorite restaurants. I only get a few things on the menu, but when it's so good why change? I always get the chicken Penang or chicken curry for my entrée. They are pretty much the same thing except the chicken curry has carrots and potatoes in it.... More
