Delicious food!

A great Thai place, got takeout while in Tampa on business, seems like I make a stop here every year when I come down. The pad ke mao is awesome, had some fresh rolls as well. Always delicious!

Their peanut sauce dish is wonderful, tangy, slightly sweet, and thick. It tasted hearty and home made. Their vegetables were not over-cooked. We also enjoyed their tempura/sampler.

This is a great place for a quick, no-frills, authentic Thai lunch! Staff is very friendly. Buffet has a lot to offer, but I go for the menu as that is where you can find Pad Kee Mao and other unctuous noodle dishes that aren't on the buffet. But the prices for everything (menu or buffet) are very reasonable. I... More

Had their lunch buffet the other day. They had a decent selection and everything was delicious! And the kicker? Under 10 bucks! If I live in Tampa I would have lunch here every day. Okay every weekday because the lunch buffet is not available on weekends :( Get there before noon if you want a seat because this place is... More

The parking lot is tiny but doable. The restaurant is pretty small too. The service was friendly and very fast. I don't love Thai food but my pad Thai was really good and the jasmine tea was good too. My mom likes the summer rolls and the chicken and rice soup and my son liked his but I can't remember...

You will pay a lot of money and still be hungry. It is very quiet. Noise is frowned upon. Stuffy place!!! I would go to PLOY THAI. It is elegant and has great food and the service is magnificent. This place can't stand next to PLOY THAI!!! PLOY THAI is so beautiful inside. Magnificent flowers are placed on every plate.... More

We went to Lemon Grass Thai cuisine for nice food and dinner. The food seemed to be very authentic and was some of the more tasty Thai food we have eaten. Do not expect too much ambience - the place is relatively small, can get crowded, and is not in an ideal place. But if you're coming for the food... More

I have been with my friends for lunch buffet on a weekday. Really worst food. The food doesn't taste good and i really didn't like the service staff. I will surely not go to this restaurant again and will not recommend to anyone.
