We had lunch at Lemon Grass with my cousin and her husband who had never had Thai food before and were very sceptical. We have two converts! They raved about the spring rolls (admittedly more Vietnamese than Thai) and all four different entrees at our table were delicious. A great hit was the coconut ice cream with candied ginger. The...

We enjoyed our dinner at Lemon Grass. The food was well-prepared, well-presented, and well-served. The decor is pleasant - quite attractive and bright (though it could use a little sprucing up). They really do a nice job, but I'm not sure I'd rate it as excellent. However, they attract a good crowd of people who seem to enjoy good food... More

We had lunch with some friends at this restaurant and were very pleased. This is a good place for a quiet adult lunch. The food is about Southeast Asian flavors. It was our first time and the favorite with our friends. The service was very friendly and quick. We were not pressured to finish our meal and just took our... More

I'm not sure why I don't eat here every weekend. It is always so good. Very fresh ingredients. Great presentation. So good every time. Went last night. I had one of the specials, seared ahi with black bean and yellow curry sauces. Wow! My wife had the ten tigers. We both loved them. Started with the crispy vegetarian egg rolls... More

This is one of our regular lunch spots. Great food and quality. We typically order the Pad Thai, which is always very tasty. Quick service.

We love to go to Lemon Grass for family dinners or special events. It is a much nicer quality food than you will get at your typical Thai or Asian restaurant. It is also elegant with good service. They could improve their ambiance a bit--it tends to be very sedate. But the food always delivers and I don't think we've... More

Please note: We got confused, thinking that we were going to a different Lemon Grass restaurant, owned by the same people. The picture on Tripadvisor, showing the counter and wall menus above, is for the other, more casual (and less expensive) location on Howe Avenue, now closed. That being said, we enjoyed our meal very much at the more formal... More
