This is our new favorite Thai restaurant in the Puget Sound area. We ate here due to its high ratings and really enjoyed our meal. It is much nicer than it looks from the simple exterior. Once inside, it has the feel of a much more upscale restaurant than we expected. The Mongolian beef and Thai fried rice were both... More

We had satay, som tum, red curry beef and a noodle dish. The satay were good with a nice complement of peanut sauce and pickles. The som tum was not spicy as it should be and was served with meat which seemed odd. The curry dish was largely chicken and baby corn (another odd vegetable choice). The wide noodles with... More

Consistently high quality, well prepared food makes this a favorite. Can't go wrong with the Honey Walnut Prawns or the Apple curry.

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!...
