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.

We have enjoyed the cook book and have long desired to go there, but it just never worked out. This time it did and we were not disappointed. Very nice menu and entrees were excellent as was appetizer. Server was appropriately interactive, friendly and efficient; nice atmosphere. Will return.

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 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
