This last time my friend and I had spring rolls with broiled skewered chicken, Mongolian beef, and sautéed green beans with tofu. The spring rolls were the best I've ever had.

The food here is mediocre at best. The chicken and the beef are both fatty. Given the proliferation of Vietnamese and Thai restaurants in the area, I'd prefer to go to a much better one. I've been here three times and didn't really care for it no matter what I ordered. The food is mundane. The service is okay. The... More

We've eaten here several times and I think the food is good. We started with pho, bun, crepes and have expandid to platers and catfish. Tasty, fresh and healthy. The service is good and the people are friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

A stop for a late lunch, Vitenamese sounded good, the choice on the next o looked good and a quick look in showed an Asian following. The menu choices were abundant, and I selected spring rolls and a 'house Special Pho'. The spring rolls were good, thin crisped shell and well seasoned fresh vegetable filling. The Pho, was spectacular. Shrimp,... More

My boyfriend and I tried the BBQ quail, vermicelli bowl and catfish stew. We loved every piece of it. The food was well cooked and flavorful. It was very hard to choose what to eat because they had such a great selection of food I have not tried. We will definitely be returning!

Lemongrass is an excellent place for a SE Asian meal. Broad menu selection, good selection of vegan options. What I appreciated was that while there were some of the items you'll see at similar restaurants, they had a good deal of choices that I remember from living in SE Asia but just do not see in most menus. Nice atmosphere,... More

The mango salad is awesome! With finely sliced mango, jalapeno, red & green peppers, plus deep-fried tofu, covered in a sauce with a bit of heat, it is the perfect mix of sweet/sour tastes and crunchy/soft textures. I also had a rice noodle stir fry with pork. While I wasn't impressed with the quality of the meat, the veggies were... More

The food was fresh and tasty. Service was fine and it's a good place to stop in for a quick bite. Lots of easy parking. No atmosphere to speak of, but it is not unpleasant.

The restaurant is located in a shopping center not far from Uwajimaya's. It is an unpretentious place. You might miss it if you don't look closely. Plenty of parking is available. The place looked clean, and organized. When I arrived at 7pm on a Tuesday eve it was about 1/2 full. I was promptly seated and the server was quick... More
