Thai Food

Thai food done right here! Quality ingredients yield quality dishes. Price is slightly more than your average thai restaurant, but you are sure to receive above average food (at the minimum).

The sauce was outstanding and the chicken was prepared perfectly. We found the place through Tripadvisor and will come back next time we are in the area.

We love Lemon Grass. My favorite dish is the honey walnut prawns, they are a must try!! The restaurant in Lacey/ Hawks Prairie is our favorite simply because the place is new and very fancy inside, but the food at all three places is great! Order a Thai iced tea with dinner because it is delicious.

Unlike most restaurants in Olympia, the newer Lacey location is extremely trendy; open and spacious, great lighting, beautiful modern decor, impressive bar, outdoor patio, and a line clear out the door waiting to get in. It feels like a high-end restaurant in Seattle or Portland. The staff is friendly, attentive, and helpful. The food is the same delicious Thai food... More

Much better than average asian food. Both the Olympia and Tumwater restaurants are pleasant spaces. My family also like take-out from Lemon Grass. Never had a dish that was not good or better than good. Not expensive but not inexpensive. Always pleasant staff.

Really really good food, good service.... but it is a bit noisy. It is also nice that they offer the amount of spice you want your food...I think it was from 0-4. One of our favorite restaurants in this area...

Six of us had a good time and the food was quite good but the service was mediocre and detracted from the meal. We waited for quite some time and asked three times for chop sticks, soy sauce and a beer. It was so noisy that we had to almost shout to hear each other Perhaps a design flaw in... More

The food is very good here, the salads are very unique as are the fried rice options. All of the dishes have variable heat options, which is nice if you can't eat overly spicy food. The only downfall is they're closed on Sunday's.
