My mother and I went to The Mali Thai Restaurant before we went to check out the Salvador Dali exhibit at theHigh Museum. We got there at lunchtime and were seated immediately. Our appetizer of spring rolls were crispy, amazing goodness. My mom got the Soft Shell Crab dish, and had them do only one pepper of spicyness, which ended up being good, because it was very spicy, but delicious! I got the Pad Thai Seafood dish with scallops and shrimp and it was amazing! We also got the bagel roll sushi, and that was some of the most huge, tasty pieces of sushi we have ever had! The price of the meal was very reasonable, the food incredible, and the waitstaff, pleasant and helpful. We will definitely come back on our next visit to Atlanta! I highly recommend you try this out-of-the-way gem!
Every time I go, no matter what time, afternoon or evening, Surin is packed with people and groups of people drinking, eating and chatting. The entrees are always fresh and arrive exactly as ordered. The Curry Soft Shell Crab, and others were all prepared to our satisfaction. The ginger martini was a real winner and a nice complement to the meal that followed. I have never gotten anything less than perfect at this restaurant. Consistently high quality of fresh vegetables, meats and sauces. Awesome service and very reasonable prices. This is one of my favorite restaurants in all of Atlanta! Great food, decent pricing and consistency in each of their dishes.
The thing that keeps bringing me back to Pozole is the margaritas. A wide and creative selection includes Pomegranate and Raspberry but I stick with the tried and true house margarita. The guacamole is excellent, the tacos are good if a bit pricey and the atmosphere is cozy, crowded and can get a bit loud but always a fun time. The outside seating is great in the spring and fall but the summer heat can be a bit overbearing inside and out so go early before the summer crowds crank up the heat. I highly recommend Pozole for a change of pace in Virginia Highland.
