First Time Treat!

My wife and I dined here and it's her favorite place to eat Chinese food. It was my first time eating here and I must say I wasn't disappointed! Everything was excellent.

The sushi rolls here are great! Chefs behind the counter gave great suggestions for new rolls to try based on the fish I prefer. Also gave a few sample cuts to try. Very fresh, very clean, fun staff and great eats! I go as often as possible. Can't wait to go back!

Don't judge a restaurant by it's outside appearance! From the outside, this restaurant looks a bit run down, however once you get inside you will learn that the food is out of this world. If you like Thai food, you will LOVE Lemon Grass. Great food, good service, good atmosphere, good price. Enjoy!

I love Thai food! So, with Tail of the Dragon appetites, the Mrs. and I descended on Maryville's #1 Thai Restaurant Lemon Grass for some hot Tom-Kah and Miso soups and their incredible Panang Curry. With their generous Dinner for Two and 1/2 price bottle of wine (and none of that cheap stuff either) specials plus our downloaded coupon (why... More

My family traveled from Durham, NC, Boone, NC and Lookout Mountain GA and met at Lemon Grass for dinner. It was my son's birthday and he really wanted sushi. Our meal was delicious. He enjoyed the sushi and I had pork fried rice which was delicious! The service was wonderful and the amount and quality of the food exceeded our... More

This place is a favorite of the folks at the large local Japanese manufacturer--both the Japanese folks and the Americans. It has become a favorite of mine also. I can't get enough of their expertly crafted sushi rolls...absolutely addictive!

My husband decided to take me to Lemon Grass since I've never had Thai food before. We walked in and the staff were very pleasant. They seated us quickly even though they were full and busy. I decided to try the chicken with the peanut butter sauce (number 29 on the menu). It was delicious!!! I was afraid it would... More

The food and service were both amazing! Thai food can be hit or miss but this place is amazing! You must try the cheese rolls as an appetizer!

We're big fans of "good" Thai food, and though we've now eaten at the Maryville TN Lemon Grass several times, I'll never forget our first visit. Driving up I saw what looked like an old building that when built, was certainly not intended for a restaurant. It looked like perhaps it used to be a garage, or something. In fact,... More

Hands down a favorite for date night. The service is consistently above average for the area and the food is always full of flavor. Huge fan of their pad thai and their sushi is also much closer to the quality one would expect in a larger town. Be sure to stop in if you are in the area. It truly... More
