Top shelf presentation, incredible flavor. Really some of the best Asian fusion I've had. I was really impressed with their drink and dessert menu as well.

We had lunch at the Lemongrass Bistro in Kailua Kona. It was a really good choice. I had basil shrimp, and my husband had a stir fried chicken dish. He also had a side of Kim Chee. All the food was seasoned and cooked just right. The service was quick and the wait staff was very friendly. The meals were... More

Simply Awesome (with two "A's") :)) The best Asian Fusion on the Big Island, hands down! Great service! Prices are very reasonable on any budget. Clean Crisp Atmosphere for any occasion. Behold the best kept secret in downtown Kona, and just off Alii Dr. Try it!... but save Me a seat if You get there first!

We were staying near the Royal Kona Resort... This was about a 10 minute walk from our condo - intersection of Hualalai Rd (which ends at Ali'i) and Kuakini Highway. As others have stated - the service is very good, the food comes out fairly fast and steaming hot, and tastes delicious! By getting just a little bit away from... More

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

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
