We were in Kailua for 14 nights and tried a different restaurant every evening. We visited the Lemongrass because it was walkable from our accommodation and because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. We shared Summer Rolls and Chicken Satay for starters and all agreed that the Satay was the best we'd ever had. My wife had Pork Chops, My sister... More

We were thrilled to follow the TripAdvisor recommendations to this wonderful low-key restaurant with great service and delicious food. It is very casual and unassuming. You wouldn't come here for the decor, but the food is fabulous. We have eaten in both Thailand and Vietnam and the food is very authentic. Everybody in our family loved their dinners. My teenage...

We found this place more accidentally - and we were blown away. We've been to many restaurants, but thi sone really nailed it: Very (!) reasonable prices for an extremely good and delicious dinner - fantastic. Without any hesitation I can recommend this restaurant! On our evening it was packed, so make a reservation or come early :)

Lemongrass is a four star restaurant because it's in Kailua and there's not much competition as there is across the Ko'olau mountains in Honolulu. It'd be a three star place in Honolulu because the taste is what you'd get at a town area Thai place like Phuket Thai. That said , the food IS good; especially the Thai Fried Chicken... More

The two times I went to Lemongrass, it was after 8 pm on a weekday. Some of the dishes were sold out - so if you have your heart set on something specific, make reservations and go early! I like Vietnamese food - fresh and clean to the palate - and am on a quest for the best banh mi.... More
