I've been going here for years. It's my favorite Thai place in Birmingham. I will vary on my order from time to time, but always go back to the pad won sen. They also have great sushi. The 5 Points South location just recently renovated their space and it's beautiful.

I met a friend for sushi and had the double shrimp maki roll. It was very good and I'd try more options next time. My only disappointment was the few options for non-raw sushi. I prefer my sushi cooked. The majority of their items are noncooked so if that is your preference you will be fine.

Surin West is a favorite staple in the trendy area of Five Points South. Definitely recommended - food is uniformly excellent whether it has been a year or so since your last visit. If you like Thai food, you will not be disappointed - from lettuce wraps to Pad Thai - it is all good! Limited parking on weekends and... More

If you like Thai, this place is awesome. Coconut soup to die for and all the entries are fantastic. Gets pretty busy during lunch, especially on weekdays. Parking may be a little frustrating, but it's walkable if you have to park and walk.

The place has a great atmosphere and the food was good. I ordered a soup and eggrolls and both came out hot and relatively quickly. The server was nice and attentive. I would go back for lunch or dinner.

Had a very good meal there. I love pad thai and they did a great job. The server was very good and we had a delightful meal. Next time we are in the area we will go back.

Chicken Noodle Bowl is the best! Wished they served it at dinner, not just for lunch. Great sushi, too!

Thank L C
