Still good after all these years

Wine selection is not great but priced fair. The server was happy to do separate checks and my rare ahi steak with 2 sauces was perfect and... read more

I love the food, the decor, the servers, the location. This is always my first choice when deciding where to go for lunch. The wonderful Thai/Vietnamese cuisine is always fresh and delicious.

Lovely restaurant, nice ambience, great service. Plating is lovely.Wonderful wall hangings. I did not care for what I ordered, it was a spicy chicken dish, which was not very spicy. It was not very exciting. I saw other dishes being served and wished I had tried one of them, My friend ordered a curry dish which she thought was quite... More

There were five of us, from three generations in the family. The menu offered a good choice of spicy and milder entrees. We each ordered something different and everyone of us enjoyed our meal. We also shared three appetizers -- tasty, superb presentation. My grandson, a lawyer, began by saying that he wasn't hungry. Well, he enjoyed some of each... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Sacramento. I think we have gone there just about ever since it opened (1988, I believe). We don't go often, but we always look forward to an evening there. Last night it was with two good friends. We saw other good friends there when we entered, which is not all that unusual,... More

Whenever I'm in Sacramento, I have to go to Lemon Grass. The food has never disappointed me. The ingredients are super fresh, and Mai Pham's creative combinations are to die for. She is a true culinary genius. The atmosphere is perfect for a comfortable dining experience AND conversation with friends. The waitstaff is extremely knowledgeable and professional, particularly when recommended... More

I was taken here for lunch as an out of town guest. I could not have been happier. It is possible that I was dressed too casually but was not stigmatized in any way. Staff makes you feel totally comfortable and welcome. I loved the ambiance; enjoyed so much looking out at outdoor stonework with water and foliage through the... More

As always the food is well prepared and the service is excellent. I had salmon green curry for lunch on this day and the flavors stayed on my palate...the prices meet the quality of the food. It is best to make a reservation for a large party. There is a wonderful private dinning room for 14...I have used it many... More

Well run. Well known. Spot to take out of town guests. Mai Pham owns the restaurant. She is also the author of The Best of Vietnamese & Thai Cooking: Favorite Recipes from Lemon Grass Restaurant and Cafes. If Mai is at the restaurant she will sign the book. We've gifted the book to several of our out of town guests... More
