I just returned from Vietnam and was looking forward to trying Lemon Grass. The meal was fantastic. The noise level was good and the tables were far apart allowing for a leisurely and calm meal. Altogether a great evening I loved the Asian food but for those who want something else, there are plenty of options

We looked forward to dining here but were disappointed at the lack of attention to presentation and the dearth of vegetables in the food. Everything tasted fine, but we have had much prettier varied food at much less expensive Thai restaurants, including in Syracuse. If surroundings and a big-city feel are more important to you than the food, you will... More

Made a last second decision to eat here before a concert at the Landmark. Even though we did not have a reservation, they were able to seat my wife and I.[ I would suggest reservations on most nights] Also, because they knew we were going to a concert, they tried their best to get our meals out to us as...

3 of the dishes were good but not exceptional. Duck however was over the top - one of the best we have had.

This place has great Thai influences and the Red Curry swordfish done semi spicy was outstanding! A great place for a wonderful dinner.Try the Tom Yum soup. Parking may be difficult, Try the underground garage next door to the restaurant.

We enjoyed our meal in the Elephant Bistro portion of this restaurant, and it was wonderful. A full menu of appetizers, with the coconut shrimp being a star!!! The steaks were prepared perfectly, and the entire meal was delivered properly. Do yourself a favor, give this place a try, you will love it.

I ate at this restaurant with some family, and we all LOVED it! Our waiter, Oliver, was not only handsome, but also wonderful in the service he provided. He was charismatic, attentive, and gave some nice suggestions. He clearly knows his job and is great at it. Between us we had the roasted duck, Bangkok beef, and pad thai, accompanied... More
