Just ok. We had read review which were very positive but we found the food a bit ordinary and over-priced.

Friendly and professional. Excellent choice of menu dishes; something to suit everyone. It is popular with locals which is always a good choice. Close to major hotels. Quiet background music was appreciated.

I think the market here is mostly for tourists who have yet to try the many food carts scattered around the city. My partner and I decided to eat here because it was conveniently close to our hotel. We ordered a seafood fried rice, a hot and sweet/sour soup thing and a stir fry of beef and some vegies. The... More

We ate here as a farewell meal at the end of a group vacation. It was recommended by our local guide and it did not disappoint. The food was fantastic, the service was very efficient yet understated and the atmosphere of the place was great. The cost was reasonable by western standards though probably a little pricey compared to other... More

I returned to Lemongrass for the first time in about 7 years and as I remembered the food was well prepared and tasty. It was though not of the same quality at a good price it was in the past. I started with a seafood soup which should have had more seafood included even though it was a large bowl... More

I've been here a few times over the years. Cocktails are excellent and the food is generally good. It could use s lick of paint on the walls though as its looking a bit tired now.

Ducked in here to avoid the rain and a have lunch. I ordered a drink and while reviewing the menu, I was overwhelmed by the smell of the restaurant. I lost my appetite and left. A restaurant should smell of savory food, not deodorizer!
