We stopped in for dinner and ordered the chicken satay and lemon grass soup as an appetizer. The soup was very spicy but good and the chicken satay was delicious. We ordered the Pad Thai and the Seafood Lover and both were good. The sticky rice and mango dessert was delicious. The service was very good.

Order the appetizer with roasted coconut & peanut slices, served on lettuce boats, with delicious plum sauce based sauce. The stars indicating hotness are skewed in a way that makes you think it is hotter than you'd think. I love green curry, but was wary of the 4 *'s the first time I went. So I ordered a 2* eggplant...

Great food, good service, good prices! Lemon Grass is one of my favorite Thai spots in Philadelphia. A wonderful place to meet friends and catch up over a yummy bowl of green curry and thai iced tea!

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.
