Best Thai and Seafood anywhere!! Clean, Good Service, Outstanding Food!! – My friends and I stopped in and had the most amazing meal ever!! I have just eaten at some great
steakhouses and top rated restaurants and Suriya out did them by service and excellent food easilty!
We had the fish of the night - fresh, grilled, flaky - not fishy at all, steak - tender and juicy and full of flavor,
and 2 dishes with prawns. these are prawns - nice succulent tasty prawns with lots of flavor. The chef walks around and talks to everyone - with a great smile and attitude. I love this place and have been there several times, yet it's hard to get people to understand that this isn't cheap thai - this is a gourmet experience every time I go there. Always exquisite, well served, and fully satisified.
Great Thai Food – This is one of my regular places. The food and service are always excellent. There are many Thai restaurants, but this is one of the best in San Francisco. Try the Chang Mai Noodles, you won't find this dish in other Thai places. The appetizers are yummy and beautifully presented. Curries are delectable and the Coconut soup is so rich and flavorful. Desserts like mango sticky rice and fried bananas with coconut ice cream are good too. I'm a vegetarian and there are plenty of options for me to enjoy.
food fine,cleanliness lacking – The food was fine, the place was fine...and then a multilegged, oval creature which will probably survive a nuclear war but cannot be named on this site walked onto the table. Makes me wonder how clean the place is. Thep Phenom is still my place for Thai.
I've tasted much better ... – Ate at Suriya for the first time a few months ago, and it will probably be my last. Neighborhood bordering on seedy, and parking was awful. Service was impeccable, and they even gave us a free appetizer for the long wait; unfortunately, the food was average, and one of the dishes (Evil Jungle Prince) was plain awful -- whatever exotic spices they used made the dish taste like you were licking an ashtray. The place has a good reputation; however, I've eaten at many Thai restaurants in the Bay Area, and I know there are much better ones.
Suriya Thai Restaurant--it's the best! – I've been to Suriya's restaurant many times and it's always excellent. Suriya is a delightful person and his staff gives great service, too. I've always enjoyed the entire dining experience there.
Just returned from Suriya's after having a great dinner there. There were 6 of us at our table and we were all well satisfied. The selections we ate were all quite different from one another--many tase sensations that pleased all of us.
The food at Suriya's is many levels above most restaurants. We're lucky to have superb Asian restaurants here in San Francisco and Suriya's Thai restaurant ranks among the best in my opinion.
After living in San Francisco for 34 years, I know what restaurants are the really good ones that can be enjoyed repeatedly, and Suriya's is one of them.
Perfect... – We had a large group eating a late dinner. We were promptly seated and very professionally taken care of. I am thorougly impressed with the management at Suriya. The manager personally came to greet us and make sure everything was well. As you know Thai food is spicy, and we were glad to have our glasses filled with water constantly. Thank you so very much for the perfect way you ended our evening.
Suriya Is The Best! – I've been to Suriya's many times and it gets better with each visit. Suriya is a delightful person and his staff is very cordial and efficient.
Tonight's dinner was superb--many different taste sensations and all items were delicious as well as different from routine Thai food which in San Francisco is quite good at many places, but Suriya's is better.
If you want a Thai dinner that is REALLY superb, Suriya is the place to go. I've lived in San Francisco for 33 years and know what's good here.
first time before 4 of July – we ordered deepfried sweet potato,kanom bueng,tom kah tofu,tom yam koong,eggplant blackbean sauce and spicy mint chicken all of them taste very good.
I would recommend kanom bueng : look like crepe but crispy filled with coconut,tofu,beansprout and shrimp served with cucumber sauce .Soup was thick but taste good my friend like tom yam koong no sweet ,not too spicy it's not same other thai restaurant.Also Eggplant blackbean sauce they sautee eggplant,shrimp,blackbean and sweet basil taste so good ,I never saw in thai restaurant and spicy mint chicken taste very good we like it.I think you should be try this restaurant
Real THAI food – It is excellent food, authentic, good price. And decoration is really thai. If you like pumpkin the serve a "pumkin curry" that is delicious.
Our last visit... – I've been to Suriya Thai about 4-5 times. Until last night, all of my visits were okay, but less than memorable. Last night, the food was BELOW average (except the sticky rice w/mango). We ordered Tom Kha Gai soup and a dish with sauteed eggplant, prawns, black beans, and basil.
The soup was too thick, lacked any kick in the spice department, and should have had other vegetables in addition to a load of boring sliced white mushrooms. It also had a distinct peanut taste (!?).
In the other dish, the prawns were tough and nearly flavorless, the beans were undercooked and hard inside, and there was so much basil the dishs overwhelming flavor was soapy no spice, sweetness, sourness, or saltiness (Thai foods primary flavors).
I've also had the pumpkin curry (which I never saw in 7 weeks in Thailand) and never ordered it again; other dishes are better.
