One of my favorite restaurants in Olympia.

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.

My husband and I went on Valentines Day while traveling through the area. We had no reservations. We only had to wait about 20 minutes and then were given a very nice table. Professional waiter, reasonable wait for drinks and food - considering it was a full house. I asked for recommendations on the three curry selections and the yellow... More

This is our go-to place. All three locations are excellent, but Hawk's Prairie's ambience is our favorite. Good service, good prices, and excellent flavors.

We've loved Lemongrass for years. Always friendly, consistently quality fresh food. Wish the prices were less, but we go anyhow!

I took out of town guests here because they really, really wanted to eat Thai food (They've been banished to Upstate New York for the past several years). Lemon Grass was THE place to go, or so I thought. I used to go there all the time, for years in fact - but hadn't been in a long time. The... More

I love the Lemon Grass and I've had just about everything on the menu and it's all good. If the meats were charbroiled the food would be perfect but it's not. I love their chow mein noodles but it would be so much better with charbroiled chicken. This downtown location gets dinged by the Health Department quite a bit but... More

Food is consistant. The atmosphere is nice but small quarters. It is best for couples or small groups. We love the walnut honey prawns there.
