Storefront belies wonderful food

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... read more

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

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

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 mediocre. To start, tom yum goong soup and tod mun were... 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.
