what a happy accident. I typed in "Thai restaurant" into the map of my smartphone and this place popped up. When I got to the corner of NE Couch St and NE 17th Ave, I thought that I was lost. Then I saw a beaming group of guests coming down the front steps of an old Victorian house and spotted... More

Portland has a LOT of Thai restaurants. This one is a distinct hidden gem. The menu is a little more limited than other places, but you won't miss any of the staples. It's flavorful, fresh, & incredibly tasty. Trust the folks on their spice scale. Their mild is a regular medium. If you love Thai food, give this one a... More

the food is very good, especially the curry. salad rolls are nondescript. but, the surly waiter who should find a different profession, makes the experience less than enjoyable. he just doesn't have time to be nice.

Friends suggested we grab dinner here a few Fridays ago. I live reasonably close, but had no idea this place existed! The restaurant is housed in an old, Portland house. Entry leads you into the foyer, and you are led to seating on the main floor of the house, through the French doors. We were seated towards the back, and... More

Wow. We found Lemongrass Thai to be really tasty. The lettuce leaf appetizer was out of this world. The combination of favors (lime, ginger, coconut, etc) was so good. You have to try it! Don't bother with the salad rolls. They were common and bland. The yellow Indian curry was my favorite curry. Lots of veggies. Really outstanding! Their Thai... More

I got the chicken noodle pho soup, and it was a HUGE bowl! They also give you a little plate of mung bean sprouts for you to put into the soup, it was awesome. But the chopsticks were made of plastic so it was harder to eat since the noodles slipped off of the sticks :P

This place had one of the best meals that we had on our trip to Portland. The restaurant is situated in an old house that has loads of charm. The curry was wonderfully tasty, but beware that this place is spicy. We got our meals a zero and one-half spiciness and they were still pretty spicy. I highly recommend this... More

If you like Thai, this is the place to go! Really delicious food. The papaya salad is a must and was such a generous portion we shared between 4 of us. All of our dishes were fantastic. The chicken in the dishes was moist and delicious. The tou perfect. The owners are so nice, fun and able to accurately guide... More

I cant say enough good about this place, We had a peanut dish and a curry dish. One of the better Thai restaurants in the country for us. The owners are really fun talk to, as well as serve a great meal. We will return.

It's been years since I've been to Portland, but I always make time to go to Lemongrass and I'm always amazed at how good the food is. The coconut soup has so many wonderful flavors!! I begged the owner for the recipe and he said it was in aisle 5 at the grocery store, Progressive! They are both so charming... More
