Very good always

We have been going to this restaurant for many years. The quality of the entrees and sushi is above average for East Tennessee. The food is always served as listed, always hot and come to the table promptly. The wait servers are always well informed and serve with a smile.

You will be pleased with the high quality and huge variety of authentic dishes served in this unassuming little restaurant! Very welcoming staff, nice decor and delicious food. Serves lunch and dinner. Closed from 3-5 pm. Only "negative": not enough parking on the weekends, so arrive early!

I love going to Lemon Grass and just asking the sushi chef (Pappy) make me a special roll. He always out does himself in creating a masterpiece for my lunch. The restaurant always has a "lunch box special" as well. My staff can visit this restaurant and be back to work in an hour. It's always a wonderful experience, especially... More

Their sushi is both beautiful and delicious, and their regular and special entrees are as well. Service is excellent. Don't be fooled by the outside -- the restaurant inside has white tablecloths and is very well appointed.

There aren't many places in Blount County where one can get curry let alone good quality curry, but this place does it right. It's nice inside albeit a little cramped. My only hangup with the place is that I could easily hear the owner raising his voice when dealing with his employees. That doesn't necessarily make for a relaxing dinner.... More

I used to live in Maryville, and ate at the Lemon Grass often. The food is excellent; I never had a bad, or even so-so meal. The dinning room is small, but that makes your dinning experience more personal. They make the best Thai tea. The prices are reasonable.

Poor service. Low quality sushi. Too expensive for the amount of food served. I left unsatisfied and unhappy. I will not go back.
