We've always had tasty, reasonably priced food here, served by a cheerful, smiling waitstaff in a pleasant relaxing atmosphere. One star deducted for a shrimp stir fry last year that led to sickness that evening. Had an elaborate deep fried sea bass dish last night. Quite a remarkable production! I'd give that one 4 1/2 stars.

We haven't had a bad dish yet. Service can be a little on the indifferent side, but the food is really good. Don't miss the Pad Thai. Highly recommend!

We had lunch at Pho Lemongrass. We thought that the food was fine, but not excellent. It was, however, filling and the service was pleasant.

We had water cress soup which was clear, with all the wonderful greens like cilantro and basil. it was delicious. than we had the inevitable spring roll- great.... More

The service is prompt, food was consistently excellent each time we returned over a year, and the ambience is great for business meetings.

This was a nice, quiet setting for a wonderful meal. Nothing fancy, but the food was really good. Loved the artwork as well as the food.

While in Boston on a business trip, I took the opportunity to try out many of the eateries in the Coolidge Corner district. While this was one of the better ones, it wasn't great. The service was prompt and the food was tasty but the chicken pho is pretty bland compared to others, which have not compromised on authenticity. Fresh... More

I was introduced to Vietnamese food a little over a year ago now, and I love it! I came here to try their version of Pho and Bun, and was pleasantly surprised. I took my friend here shortly after, and she soon loved it as well. Pho Lemongrass has now become our place to go about once or twice a... More
