Very good food and service. It's on UA strip but suits mature palette. Authentic flavor, fresh food and fabulous bar... elite bartender. Fun dinner.

A rather eclectic blend of Thai food and sushi. We had the Pad Thai (called "Thai noodles"), Masaman curry, egg rolls and crab wontons. The egg rolls were an interesting blend of fried rice paper (like Vietnamese rolls) with cabbage filling (like Chinese). The masaman was outstanding, while the pad thai was good, if not all that spectacular.

Surin has some of the best Thai food I have had anywhere. I have eaten there many times and I live 800 miles away. Great place for a group-all of the food is fresh and everyone we have taken loves it. I am a foodie and this is a great spot. They are known for a late night Sushi Happy... More

The place serves a variety of Asian food. The Thai cooking was excellent despite the lack of Asian-looking cooks. I recommend the Basil Roll for appetizer. Yellow curry with chicken was excellent, although it could be more spicy. Coconut ice-cream was hard like a rock; it became a struggle to eat it. Service was excellent; and the price was reasonable.

May be the best chicken teriyaki I've ever had. Fried rice was perfect - not too greasy. California crunch sushi was very good, too. I had not been to Surin for a year or two, and only go about once a year at most. It was much better than last time. Two people had a good dinner for $30 including... More

Just at the perimeter of campus is Surin of Thailand. Good food. They have excellent sushi as well as your typical Thai menu. We had their spicy noodles - the waiter told us that we could change the meat in the dish, so I had shrimp and my wife had chicken. We are big fans of drunken noodles and when... More

I eat there frequently for lunch with a group of co-workers -- it's very popular for that. You can be out the door for <$10.

Very good Thai food. Great location for University of Alabama students, but very limited parking. Luncheon specials are reasonably priced. Their is a coupon in Wednesday's Tuscaloosa news for a discount. It's not as good a deal now as it was a year or so ago, therefore I don't visit as often.

Thank Wayne H
