Fondren is soon to have a Thai restaurant in the former Nick’s space on Old Canton Road.

Surin of Thailand and Sushi Bar plans to open sometime this fall according to a company spokesperson, who confirms the signing of a long-term lease with Action Properties.

Surin, an eatery serving authentic Thai cuisine since 1990, has eight additional locations: two in Atlanta, one each in Knoxville, Huntsville and Tuscaloosa and three in Birmingham.

Menu options include Shu She Salmon, soft shell crab with asparagus sauce, Thai curry and sushi. “The experience of Authentic Thai Cuisine is coupled with a full Sushi Bar, a knowledgeable and professional wait staff, a full Martini Menu, varied wine list, and professional bartenders,” their website says. “Many of our Thai people are trained in Japan by professional Sushi Chefs and find an easy transition from our fresh, select, and “made to order” Thai Cuisine to our fresh, select, and “made to order” Sushi and Sashimi.”

Update: March 16, 2015 – Surin is NOW OPEN!
