Really tasty food, modest decor

We just had the tastiest dinner tonight at Lemon Grass than we have had in our last four weeks of restaurant outings elsewhere in what seemed a painful run of truly mediocre food. The flavors, textures, and ingredients here were refreshing and delightful, although the room decor is certifiably... read more

My wife and I have been eating at Lemon Grass for a long time, probably at least 20 years by our reckoning. It was recommended to us a a gem of a Thai restaurant, and for many years lived up to its promise, delivering wonderful food in a clean, not terribly fancy but friendly local setting. But somewhere in the... More

The food is very good there, and I take friends there. Also my family likes the food. The service is good. The interior isn't the newest, but who is going to eat it? I definitely can recommend eating at the Lemon Grass if you like Asian food.

It's a great place to go when you have a large group you want to dine with. The food is well presented and tasty, although not particularly authentic. The pad thai I got was a bit on the mushy side and a bit too heavily seasoned. Prices are reasonable for this part of town.

We had tofu triangles to start. Not bad. For entrees we had chicken pad thai and chicken thai red curry. Both dishes were very good. The curry had lots of delicious veggies. Service was very good, never went thirsty ( very important when eating spicy food) I recommend eating here if you like thai food.

My wife and I ambled here while prowling around the neighborhoods into which we are moving. This is more an Asian fusion than a pure Thai experience. We had one of our favorite (ethnic Japanese) appetizers: edamame, which was quite nice. My curried salmon main dish was also very good. My wife's fried tofu was outstanding. Portion sizes are very...

I tend to eat at Lemon Grass about once a month either with my wife or with my son. The menu is very extensive, the food is very good, and reasonably priced. The wine list is limited but this is a small family run restaurant. The service is excellent and everyone there is very gracious. If I have a complaint,... More

We have gone to many Thai restaurants and expect tasty foods and waiters who understand what we want given some food allergies. Lemon grass food does not stand out as tasty. When we have asked to change a dish for allergies we have not been understood and their response has been defensive. They have not been very friendly or helpful.... More
