Nothing special... Except the food

Lemongrass is another of Charlottesville's small eatery gems. We got the chance to visit again this year during fall move-in for our 3rd year son, and we were not disappointed.

I went to UVA (we won't say how long ago). "The Corner" was one place you could walk to as a first-year (freshman) to get a break from dining hall dining. And the fare on the corner has always been basic American diner food - burgers, pizza, subs etc. Now students (and visiting parents) have so much more choice -... More

Since my wife is vegan, we phoned the restaurant to make sure that they would have a good selection of items that fit her dietary needs. We were told that they did, so we went to the restaurant. What we found was that there were just a few dishes that were vegan. We saw many other dishes that looked good... More

Lot's of options...even for people with celiac disease and can't have gluten! Clearly labeled menu for those with allergies. Spice level can easily be adjusted so everyone can be happy! Portion sizes are VERY small. Heads up...the dinner size is the SAME size as the lunch size and at least 5 dollars more. Don't waste your money on dinner! Go... More

Really delicious food! We ordered take-out, but the inside of the place was cute and had a nice atmosphere. We were able to finish all of our food (we each ordered an entree), which some might say the portions were a bit small. They have a spice rating system of 1-10 on how spicy you want your food. I was... More

My wife, son and I visited Lemongrass for an evening meal. All dishes ordered were prepared freshly and to each person's taste. Unfortunately, while the food was good, there was nothing that absolutely stood out as fantastic. The service was also mediocre. Perhaps we were there on a bad evening.

This spot gets packed quick around lunch and early dinner. The food is delicious, and you can customize your spicy level.

This thai is fabulous. We had pad thai which was flavorful and the best we have had yet in any thai restaurant. Husband had lemongrass chicken, he loved it. I had the tofu pineapple fried rice. Mine was delicious, only suggestion would be less tofu more pineapple. I think there was about 4 pieces of pineapple and a ton of... More

Lemongrass is a really good Thai restaurant, my husband first discovered it years a go around and have been going there almost every time we go to Charlottesville, The owner and staff are always very friendly. My husband loves the drunken noodles but we try to try many of the different options on the menu. We also order an extra... More

Most popular That Restaurant in the area...always crowded, but their food is always the best! Sometimes wait time can be little annoying...but food will make that up.. :P
