For years I have eaten at this restaurant with family, friends, and buddies from the office. This place is busy for a good reason. The food is flavorful, as spicy (or not) as you desire, and the menu has all the classic dishes and more. The dinners are moderate in price, the place is not fancy... and can be crowded... More

There are various Lemon Grass locations, but I prefer the one in Lacey and Olympia because Tumwater is small. I have enjoyed the food at each location. I love going there because there is such a variety to choose from and each dish I have tried has been great. I have had Pad Thai, Singapore Noodles, and most of the... More

There are three Lemon Grass restaurants in Thurston County. It serves an Asian cuisine that is delightful to the taste buds. We frequent this establishment because of the authentic tasting food and wonderful service. The interior of the Lacey restaurant is modern but not formal. One can dress either casually or formally. It has a beautiful water feature inside that... More

First off This place has a lovely atmosphere but the food was just okay I was visiting my daughter and we had tried another Asian/Thai place in town and it was superior in food but not ambiance.

The Lemon Grass has two locations. Tumwater is a bit small with the tables closer than I like, but the food never disappoints. I have tried a number of dishes and will probably eat my way through the menu - of the food that is OK for me to eat. Fortunately there are many options so I may not be... More

we just enjoyed saturday evening dinner @ our local, tumwater lemon grass restaurant - generally, the food is clean, fresh, & swimming in delicious, zesty flavors ! - the menu is varied, with a nice selection of entrees; all plates are prepared with a great, mouthwatering sauce that brings all the ingredients together for a flavorful experience in one's mouth!...

The lemon Grass restaurant located in downtown Olympia, Washington serves, in my opinion, the best Thai food in Washington State. Everything the have on the menu is outstanding. Their curries are amazingly delicious. The interior of the restaurant in beautiful and warm. You feel at home. The restaurant is usually a little crowded so expect a short wait for a... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. Everything I've ordered has been wonderful. I've ordered almond chicken at many places, but the Lemon Grass has the best. I wish they would offer combo plates.

We made reservations for an early Saturday evening dinner, and we wouldn't have been able to get in the door without them. This is a very popular place nicely appointed, with good baffling. So though it's quite small, and seats 30 in the main room it's still comfortable and you can actually carry on a conversation with your dining companion.... More
