Great variety of food!

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

I just hate here for the 2nd time yesterday with my mom. The first time was last year and I had their Pho. It was wonderful. This time around I tried the Lemon Garlic Chicken which comes with grilled onions and sliced tomatoes on a bed of iceberg lettuce. It was fantastic! The flavors were amazing, the chicken tender, and... More

This was the best restaurant we found locally. It was good, fresh Vietnamese food. My only complaint is that we ate too much.

My wife and I were doing some shopping at Uwajimaya's in Renton and decided to have a late lunch at The Lemongrass, which is right next door to Genki Sushi and right across the parking lot from Uwaji's. We've seen the sign there numerous times, but have never tried it previously. The name suggests Thai, but on the sign it... More

It was a surprise to like this place so much--but the food is really the best Vietnese food in the Seattle area!
