Lemon Grass has an inexpensive lunch special that includes a soup, appetizer and entree. the portions are reasonable and the flavors fresh and tasty. The service is quick and helpful, even if the staff seem a bit beleaguered. The restaurant is a little dark and cramped, and it's not the best for large groups, but it's ideal for a quick... More

I often eat here for lunch, where they have an inexpensive lunch special consisting of a soup, appetizer and entree. The flavors are fresh and distinctive. I especially like their BBQ chicken. They also have great vegetarian options. Service is competent and quick, although not particularly friendly.

The food service was fast during lunch even though it was quite busy. The food was pretty standard Thai food-nothing extraordinary.

The service was good. We were in walking distance from our B&B, so that was very convenient. The food was well prepared with good flavors, but one item ordered was not as expected. We should have asked more questions. The interior was dim, but otherwise pleasant.

The sticky rice and mango dessert was spectacular - the servings were generous and the price was reasonable.

We showed up fifteen minutes before their regular opening time, but they saw us peering in through the window, and welcomed us in right away. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I'm not much of an expert on authentic Thai food, but I know what tastes good, and this is it.

The food here really is amazing, so it's too bad that the service is really subpar. Seems like you're just annoying them, we didn't even get finished eating our dinner before the check was dropped on us. If you can withstand the angry looking waitresses the food is definitely worth the trip!
