great place to treat someone for a meal

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... read 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

I'm not very skilled in judging Thai Food, however very much enjoyed my tiger paw, and had some my wife's chicken curry which was also very good. Also we had the spring roll appetizers, very, very good. The waiter was a real cool dude from Arkansas, which having done slot of work their I appreciated.

Lemon Grass has always been one of our favorite "go to" restaurant where we can always count on wonderful Asian fusion dinners created by one of our favorite local chefs Mai Nguyen. But, the last three dinners we had over the holidays and just recently this month has shown a consistent disappointment in its dishes. The Pad Thai dish was... More

Our first time visit was a big disappointment. After a long wait for our food, the waiter returned and apologized for not getting our order placed in the kitchen--he forget what we ordered. He took the order again. After another long wait our order was served, but my wife's entree was not what she ordered. After another long wait for... More

Nice variety of Asian entrees. Quiet setting. Friendly service although it was a bit slow. Nice size portions. Comfortable seating. A little difficult to find in a small strip mall, but worth it.

Nice dishes, not bursting with flavor, not delivering the freshness of the cuisine and without an espresso machine... Nice bit no more.
