Surin West is a favorite staple in the trendy area of Five Points South. Definitely recommended - food is uniformly excellent whether it has been a year or so since your last visit. If you like Thai food, you will not be disappointed - from lettuce wraps to Pad Thai - it is all good! Limited parking on weekends and... More

If you like Thai, this place is awesome. Coconut soup to die for and all the entries are fantastic. Gets pretty busy during lunch, especially on weekdays. Parking may be a little frustrating, but it's walkable if you have to park and walk.

The place has a great atmosphere and the food was good. I ordered a soup and eggrolls and both came out hot and relatively quickly. The server was nice and attentive. I would go back for lunch or dinner.

Had a very good meal there. I love pad thai and they did a great job. The server was very good and we had a delightful meal. Next time we are in the area we will go back.

Chicken Noodle Bowl is the best! Wished they served it at dinner, not just for lunch. Great sushi, too!

Great service, okay food, rough parking. I'll be happy to go along if someone else wants to go, but it's not an especially amazing Thai place.

I've visited this restaurant several times, only because family members love it. I'd found the food underwhelming... until this last visit. The difference? I requested recommendations from a long-term staff member, Tony. He recommended *two* off-menu selections, each of which I found deliciously plated and seasoned. First was a pork-belly appetizer. Crispy, succulent, and accompanied by a spicy sauce that... More

Spicy beef noodle and island martini were the bomb.com. Our server Bruce was great, and the renovations look AMAZING! Glad Surin updated the atmosphere.

Surin is one of my fave places to eat in Birmingham! They have a variety of vegan options, and they're willing to customize things to meet allergy sufferers' needs, which not all places are. My favorite dish is the Pad See-U without egg and with tofu as the protein, but I also love the sweet and sour dish made with... More
