“Food good,Atmosphere? Well...”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

My son had the Sushi (Maki rolls) and I had the Green Curry Shrimp. The sushi is expensive and the servings were small but my son said it was very good (he and I eat sushi often and I trust his judgment). The Green Curry Shrimp was very good. The vegetables were crisp, the shrimp were large and tasty. It was served with a generous portion of rice (in a separate container). The drinks were good (we both had the iced Thai Tea). The issue for me was atmosphere. The restaurant is located in a mid-level shopping mall. This is not a bad thing because there was plenty of parking. Once inside there was a very small waiting area (and the place was crowded). Seating was surprisingly fast with no wait. The lighting is muted, sufficient and nice. Some tables had small lite candles to add to the ambiance but the place is very loud. The noise level is somewhere between a cafeteria and a bar. I could not hear the person across the table unless they were almost shouting. Maybe this is a good place to hang-out with friends or for social events but despite the great food I would not take a date or spouse here for an intimate evening.

“Great Thai Food”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Since you're reading this review, you also enjoy well-prepared Thai food. There are many ways to mess up Thai cuisine; you've seen this with restaurants that may not use the freshest ingredients, may overcook the food, miss the subtle variety of spices needed for the food, add to much sugar, or put in so much in the way of hot peppers that all taste is lost.

Surin doesn't make any food preparation mistakes. In my visit on June 21, I ordered the dumplings as an appetizer and my favorite Thai dish, Pad Thai with tofu, then splurged with mango ice cream.

The dumplings, a mix of pork and vegetables inside, were served hot at the table. A sauce with a mild to moderate mix of peppers didn't overpower the dumplings. Other spices made up a sauce for the dumplings that was great for dipping, very flavorful.

The Thai national dish, Pad Thai, was served with fresh beansprouts, perfectly cooked noodles, tofu slightly fried, a light coatings of crushed peanuts, and a perfect mix of spices. It wasn't too hot, it had the right slightly sweet taste with the right mix of other spices. Pad Thai is delcious, but how often is it prepared perfectly?

The mango ice cream was also very good as a dessert.

The food portions are good-sized, so you won't leave hungry.

That restaurant atmospher was fairly good, with some effort made at table arrangement, restaurant layout, and decoration to distinguish it from the standard boxy strip mall layout.

Surin is located in a standard suburban strip mall, albeit a relatively modern building, but the food is much better than typically found in similar-looking establishments. Surin has a chef who really understands how the food should taste.
