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

This place has fabulous food! Super delicious! I had the Sesame Chicken and oh man! They really know how to make food spicy! Make sure when they ask you how hot you want your food to be very honest with how much you can handle. They mean business!

We've been here twice and loved it both times! I've had drunken noodles, pad Thai and sticky rice with mango. I didn't care for the wild rice version of sticky rice, but some might. There is a dish here that I've never seen on a menu called Thai bacon and it is phenomenal!! The service is quick, efficient and friendly.... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Charlottesville. Service is great and the owners are a trip. The food is wonderful. Every dish seems so balanced. Unfortunately they have replaced the best thing on their menu-the viet soft rolls-with a fried beef dumpling that we don't particularly enjoy, but their soups and entrees continue to be exciting, light and nuanced. If... More

This is a cute restaurant with a great vibe by the university. Most people will be pleasantly surprised by the menu; however, as a vegetarian there were no options other than the vegan menu options as all the other dishes contain fish broth that cannot apparently be excluded when ordered. There are several vegan options on the menu which is... More
