Superb Thai

Fun atmosphere with walls covered in traditional Thai stuff. Prompt service and very accommodating to a couple special requests. They get vegan here. Food was fantastic and some of the best Thai I've ever had. Coconut soup so good.

Very good food. Great service. Fine people working there, always a great conversation with the waiter. The curry is really fine, will be back, many times.

I am hooked on this place! They are always busy though so be patient. Bring good company while you wait for our food which is worth the wait.

This place has the best Thai in Olympia. I think It is overpriced but it is good and consistent. Try the Thai fried rice, Singapore noodles and the prawns.

There are now three Lemon Grass restaurants in our area. The newest one is in Lacey. The owners of these restaurants have wonderful food. I have never had poor quality food in any of the three. Their salads with mangos and papayas are delicious. I am partial to the honey almond shrimp and they do a yummy job with this... More

We have lived in Olympia for 9 years, and quite frankly, find it a bit lacking in the restaurant department. It lacks the variety and quality of food you'd expect in a small college town. That said, Lemongrass is our favorite local restaurant. The quality of their food is consistently high, with fresh vegetables in every dish. Their tofu (available... More

Quick service. Fair market price. Good food. Didn't love the noodles but the rest was good and portion was nice, enough for 2 meals. Recommended to me and I would recommend to others.

Lovely quiet restaurant just off I5 north of Olympia. Delicious extensive menu items with interesting combinations and flavours. Have eaten here before and would come again = all the way from Ohio.

We go to Lemon Grass, either downtown or Hawks Prairie, at least once a month and sometime more. Both locations are great. We usually go with another couple and eat family style so we taste 4 or more dishes each time. Each dish has it's own flavor. The setting is upscale especially at the Lacey site. They offer 4 grades... More
