I visited this restaurant on a crowded Saturday night with two friends and no reservations. The hostess was very friendly and found us a table after only a 10 minute wait. We ordered the shrimp spring rolls and they were very fresh and spicy and possibly the best I have ever had. My entree of pad thai was very good... More

My wife and I prefer small locally owned restaurants, so we decided to try Lemongrass. Our meals were outstanding. The vegetables were fresh and both our dishes had a good variety...sometimes you get a lot of celery, cabbage, and carrots. The red curry was delicious and comfortably spicy, though I could have had it "Thai hot." My wife had garlic... More

Food cam out quick and we asked for mild and got a mild dish. What we did not like was that the dish was $5 more than the... More

We stopped for dinner in New Paltz on the way home from my University. There were a variety of restaurants in the area, but we settled on Lemongrass after walking exploring our options. It was much emptier than I would have expected, especially on a Friday night, which should have been a warning sign. The other restaurants on the street... More

Lemongrass is not just my favorite Thai restaurant, but probably my all time favorite restaurant. I have been going here for the best six years (discovered it while going to college at New Paltz) and the food has been consistent every time. The service is always great, very friendly. Their Pad See Awe/Ew is delicious, and a good portion size.... More

This restaurant has a very dim interior when you walk in but it's actually really very nice and private if you get a booth. Their food is great; I've never been disappointed. The staff is always friendly. Their lunch menu is more limited but they will make you anything from the actual menu but for dinner prices. It's the best... More

Visiting friends who live in Rosendale, NY, we were taken to this restaurant and were amazed at the quality of food and portion size. They were both fantastic. The service is great and and the food even better. Cannot fault the place and it is highly recommended! Great flavours and excellent value for money. I had so much food, I... More

Very tasty dinner, all nicely presented. Even my children enjoyed their milder dishes. Large servings, plenty to take home. Friendly and attentive service. Should not charge $2.50 for brown rice servings. Should replace Styrofoam containers with paper ones.

The foods were served cold especially the pad Thai but some were little bit hot and ok, beef curry meat was not really easy to digest, the taste were average and the presentation made was not really inviting.
