“Great food away from the beach”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Stayed at Doubletree Hilton, Surin beach for 8 nights and ate here 3 nights. Travelling with teenage boys (one whom it not very adventurous with food) there was a good mix of Asian and western food, at a cheaper price than the beachfront restaurants. Very comfortable and homely, with the added bonus of a couple of tv's showing EPL football which was why were returned 3 times (crucial matches apparently!).

“Quaint and homey, love it”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Surin Bay won't win prizes for style but oh how I love the place. The rooms are spacious and if you're lucky enough to get a suite the beds are brilliantly comfortable and rooms have a balcony overlooking the street.

Breakfasts are big, brash and British and the rest of the food is ok too. Nothing spectacular but a good mix of Thai & western for the homesick expat. I loved my stay here. Even had British Telly.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

On our last night in Thailand we went here for dinner. I had fish and my wife had lasagna with wine and coffees. Both the food and the service were great, and reasonably priced. We were sorry that we didn't find this restaurant earlier in our visit.

“Tried and True - Totally Dependable - and Delicious”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

We have been eating here for a number of years whenever we are in Surin Bay and the last visit only confirmed what we already knew - really excellent food, great service and value for money.

The Surin Bay';s Pad Thai is far and away the best in the area - cleverly wrapped in an egg envelope there heaps of prawns - and not just the small ones. Flavour is really good and the presentation is perfect.

Ditto the spare ribs - melt in your mouth, fall of the bone variety - these are really good.

Other members of our party had the Thai breakfast (for lunch) - the rice porridge/congee met everyone's exacting standards and there were commendations all around.

The Surin Bay Inn is spotlessly clean, well appointed with a very pleasant balcony dining area where you can watch the world go by in the shade (or out of the rain.

Top marks for this restaurant and boutique hotel.

Absolute recommendation - well worth the visit.

“Great food decent place.”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Great food for a decent price! We went back again as we were impressed with the quality and value for money. Service is average but the food's good so why not.
