Brought some Hong Kong natives here for a business lunch. They'd been craving "good noodles" which they hadn't found anywhere else in Kona yet. This place met with their approval and was where they dined for lunch all the rest of their stay. Not a noodle-loving Hong Kong native myself, I nevertheless also enjoyed the food and service and learned... More

This has become one of our MUST visit restaurants while we're on Kona. Delicious food (don't miss their green curry!), good service, reasonable prices. Every time family joins us on BIG island, we bring them here - and everyone LOVES the food. A little hard to find, but definitely worth the effort.

We hadn't been to Lemongrass Bistro for a while, not sure why. The food was so good. My husband had the Kung Pao Beef. I was lucky he shared. The flavors were wonderful, the beef very tender, fresh, crisp vegetables and fresh shiitake mushrooms. Delish :: the best Kung Pao. I had the Pad Thai, with shrimp and chicken. Very... More

Sambal beef, very nice... Tom Yum, an upscale twist... Parking is tight... but the food is never disappointing...

Very good Thai food served quickly and politely. Drinks were fine and the price for 2 starters, 2 mains and 3 drinks was $66, a little steep but we enjoyed it. The p!ace does lack 'atmosphere' so don't expect a romantic place to dine. Free parking is available a short walk away so don't use the pay parking at the... More

This is one funky place. It's set in a little strip mall sandwiched between a pizza place and sushi eatery. The outdoor dining fixtures are spartan. The view is of the 76 Station across the street. But the food.... Oh, the food.... We were in the area eight nights and ate here three times. The lettuce wrap is a winning... More

Outstanding flavors! We were there on a Sunday, and the 'appetizers' proved to be a wonder…sesame tofu; thai beef; tempura veggies. We loved it all.

Food was decent, not great but customer service was poor. Servers were very cold and unfriendly. Food took a long time then only one dish came out had to wait 15 minutes for the 2nd one. Couldn't even get waitress attention to ask if our 2nd dish was coming at all. Felt uncomfortable the whole time because the waitresses were... More

We went in for Sunday lunch which isn't a time that you can count on the same chef as the rest of the week but it was great. We were disappointed that there was no lunch menu on the weekend but the food was tasty. There were generous portions and the ingredients were fresh. Seemed to be populated by locals... More
