A huge statue of Buddha watches over the dining room at Surin of Thailand, although his peaceful gaze is subverted by complex curries, spicy stir-fried noodle dishes, and flavorful barbecue-chicken entrees a day in the making. Half chickens are marinated in Thai barbecue sauce overnight before being slowly roasted and grilled, then they?re plated with scoops of shrimp fried rice and reminders to chew each bite thoroughly, not matter who?s threatening to steal the flavorful dark meat. Surin measures its dishes' spiciness on a three-pepper scale, where one is "spicy" and three is "Thai hot." Though most dishes fall between nonspicy and hot, a few earn their trio of peppers, including a medley of mussels, scallops, and shrimp with spicy basil sauce. Another Buddha?actually, just a head?guards the sushi bar, where nigiri, sashimi, and creative maki rolls are born. Under the two Buddhas' protection, diners settle into leather seats or tuck into booths backed by ferns and foliage. Outside the stone-walled eatery, a patio seasons dishes with sunlight and refreshing breezes.

Creamy curries, drunken noodles, and barbecue eel and fried shrimp helped earn Stir Fry Cafe runners-up nods in both the Best Asian and Best Sushi categories for Knoxville News Sentinel?s Best of 2012 list. Teriyaki chicken and spicy noodles stand on plates beside walls decorated with art from local artists. Wine and beer flow freely at the black-and-white checkered bar, which also served as the base for Stir Fry Cafe?s attempt at crafting the longest fish taco in known space.

Hibachi Factory churns out Japanese grilled surf and turf with speed. Tender morsels of beef, chicken, and seafood taste like they were born in the hibachi sauce—a dark, viscous, and tangy concoction that bubbles up naturally in the pristine reaches of Mount Fuji. Hibachi entrees come in regular ($5.79–$8.29) or large ($7.79–$10.89) portions and are flanked by fried rice, mushrooms, and a choice of glazed carrots or zucchini and onions. Sides of baked veggie egg rolls and salad round out the savory selections ($1.99 each). For dessert, dip a ladle into creamy slices of silk pie or cheesecake ($3.59 each). Soft drinks and sweet tea come by the 20-ounce or two-liter bottle, providing quick and complete sustenance for an all-nighter or a relaxing evening at home listening to Pat Boone audiobooks.
