Wish I had known about Surin years ago. Great basil shrimp rolls with an incredible peanut sauce, yummy Patang — and I usually do not go for red chile paste nor tofu. If anything, I would have preferred food spicier. Excellent, friendly service. Room is...More

Had dinner at Surin last week when visiting my son at UA. I wish I had gotten our waitress' name because she was exceptional...super friendly and attentive. Really helped to make the meal a positive one. We both had chicken pad thai. It was quite...More

We love Surin! The restaurant is spacious and clean, the staff is great, and the food is delicious. I recommend Thai Barbecue Chicken, Cashew Nut Chicken, and the Pad Prik Chicken. Everyone needs to try their spicy coconut chicken soup—such a unique flavor and so...More

We have been going here 10 years and sad to say that things have changed. They must have new management the portions are smaller and the quality has gone down. This use to be our favorite thai place but can no longer recamend it.

This was our second visit, definitely worth it! Sauces are light, portions are huge, seafood & meats are delicious. You will definitely have food to go. Very accommodating with food allergies. My picky daughter thinks this is the best pad Thai ever!

The food is actually quite good. However, there is a bearded server who is an imperious, pompous jerk! When he finally acquiesced to come to our table, he questioned my choice of order. When I assured him I wanted what I ordered, He continued to...More

Came in thinking about a Thai dinner but after looking at the menu ordered the chefs choice Sushi combo. Turned out to be an excellent choice. Simply delicious.

We arrived on a Sunday for lunch anticipating the wonderful cuisine we've enjoyed in the past. To our horror, our waiter was the bearded fellow--you know, the imperious, pompous, arrogant jerk. He proceeded to tell me I didn't know what I was ordering (I lived...More
