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

We came here for dinner in September and it was great and in a great neighborhood. Service was great and fast and the food was awesome. Their pad thai is very good. Would definitely go again.

Came here with a work colleague for a dining experience. Ordered two appetizers and two "mains" (one was an appetizer as well). My soup came out 20 minutes before my colleague's sushi roll, and then his main dish came out 20 minutes after my appetizer main dish. I was still hungry so I ordered another appetizer, but after 25 more... More

Darrell was our server, he took good care of us without being intrusive. I had the coconut soup with shrimp. The soup was a great surprise, it didn't taste anything like I expected but was delicious. The two shrimp were cooked perfectly. Truly a delicious dish. Then I had the Pineapple Boat Shrimp, which, again, was delicious. The shrimp were... More

This was recommended by a local and in a revitalized area so we gave it a try. The restaurant had a newer looking interior and seemed to be in the process of expanding next door. My husband ordered a Manhattan which was not good and overpriced. His cashew tofu was bland even though it had a one chili pepper. The... More

I love this place, especially for the awesome lunch specials and coconut soup. I've tried the bbq chicken, catfish, sushi, spicy beef salad, and other dishes that never disappoint. I've had graduation lunch here, dates with hubby, and lunches with friends. I've always been pleased with the service and food.

I've been to surin 280, but was closer in proximity to surin west so I decided to pay them a visit. As usual they met my expectations with the good food, friendly staff, and fast service. They have a great selection of entrées and if you are into curry this is a good spot. I had the pad pork prik.... More

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.
