Yum yum

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

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 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

The service was quick. We ordered a tofu dish and it tasted OK. The variety for vegans is a bit on the low side.

I have always gotten amazing food here. The Lemongrass tofu is very flavorful with lots of sauce. The service is great, too. During the school year, you need to go either at 11:30 or 1:30 as the lunch crowd means a wait. It is worth the wait, however.

I was not impressed with Lemongrass. I love Thai food and found the offerings here to be very average. My chicken Pad Thai was OK, nothing special. The Nam-Viet spring rolls, fried, were nice and crispy, just right, on the side that was up and yet soggy and greasy, just wrong, on the side settled on the plate. The service... More

I don't even remember how many times I've eaten here, but it's one of my favorite Thai restaurants. We started eating here in 2007, when our son was a freshman at UVA, and it's been a regular stop ever since. the food is consistently good, and reasonably priced. Everything always tastes fresh. Some of our favorites include the cashew chicken,... More

We ate here while staying in Charlottesville. Great little place stashed away on the UVa Corner. Service was terrific, menu offered a wide variety of Thai dishes and best of all, the food was amazing. My husband and I shared the crispy spring rolls, tofu bites and a ginger tofu-veggie scramble dish. We have recently ventured into a vegan diet... More
