Surin on 20th was a restaurant at 1005 20th Street South in the Pickwick Plaza in 5 Points South. Opened in 1997 as Nirus in the former Rube Burrow's Food and Spirits space by restaurantuer Surin Techarukpong‎, the restaurant was meant to be a complement to the recently opened Surin West a block away. The restaurant's name was changed soon after it opened, and it closed its doors for good in September 1998. The closeness of the two restaurants was blamed for Surin on 20th's demise.
