Went twice - 3* and 2*

I have generously given 3* but this place deserves a 2.5*. We went twice, both dinners a few months apart. The location is good, parking plenty, right in Lexington town center. Service is average, borderline uncaring or indifferent. Not effusive or friendly, which you get used to in the... read more

Great menu, great service, great prices. What more could you ask for? Wonderful variety with exquisite sauces. Their curries are a must!

Nice restautant, convenient to Lexington's main street and attractions, but the food was only average. Being from Washington DC (and having lived many years in Asia), we are used to really authentic Thai cuisine, and while we have no compliants about this place,the food was not quite to the standard of the DC area. It was a good place for... More

We enjoy Thai food immensely, so consider ourselves connoisseurs. Lemon Grass did not disappoint us in anyway.

Went to this place based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were the only clients at 5PM, service was swift and the food was good, basic thai food. Not a gourmet place, good value for money.

My wife and I have been eating at Lemon Grass for maybe 20 years, and our last visit will probably be our last. Where it formerly could be relied on for excellent food, consistently prepares, it has slipped in recent years and has finally reached that threshold where we simply don't want to go back. Food is inconsistent, sometimes not... More

Colleagues of mine just in from Switzerland and I went here for lunch. The food was OK, though the chicken in the curry I had was tough and overcooked, one piece with gristle in it. But the real problem came at the end of the meal, when my colleague paid for the meal. The waitress came back to the table... More

Don't let the storefront deter you from going inside. The food came steaming hot and was fresh and very tasty. We started with spring rolls and then shared chicken and shrimp dishes. The ginger and garlic sauces were both wonderful. Very little was spent on decor but you will go here for the food. Parking is at a premium so... 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
