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

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
