Description: Lemongrass Delray Beach has been the place to go for Thai, Japanese sushi, and Vietnamese since opening. The eclectic expansive menu will have you coming back multiple times to see how one little kitchen can put out so much. With all rolls and dishes made to order, the chefs can create just about anything to your liking. The notable wine and sake list provides the perfect paring to any entree. Reasonable prices, excellent service and award-winning cuisine, are just a few reasons why people keep coming back time and time again.

“Flawless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

We have arived to Delray Beach after a 5 hour roadtrip and were too hungry and tired to wander around to find a place to eat, so we just sat in there where there were a lot of people...it can't be bad. And it wasn't. Indeed the food was delicius (curries are especially recommended to try if u like spicy) the waiters were fast and kind and the atmosphere was cosy. If you want to have a fast but fine dinner this is your place!

“Great Sushi but not coupon friendly!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

They have a few locations in south FL. I find the food quality consistent and well. The Atlantic ave location wont take coupons from any other location and they don't seem to have coupons available. Nothing special about the staff but the sushi is excellent and which why I go.

“Where we go when we want sushi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

If you're in the Delray/Boca area, you have two choices for a Lemon Grass experience. The one on Linton and the one on Royal Palm Place. The Delray restaurant is larger and has a more hectic feeling. Whenever we want sushi or Thai food, this is our place. Hands down. Food is just great. Difficult to get reservations on weekends or holidays, so reserve early. Outdoor seating, as well as indoor. We just love the restaurant. but can't say the service has always been what we'd expect. However, the food is so delicious we just take it as it is.

“Great sushi in the heart of Delray Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Atlantic Avenue is littered with great restaurants, several of which are sushi joints. I'd wager that Lemongrass is the best of the offerings in the center of Delray. The atmosphere is always good and a seat is typically easy to get either inside, outside in the middle of the action, or at their bar. Having never tried any of the typical entrees, I can only comment on the sushi, which is great. My favorite having been to this place more than ten times since moving here just this year is definitely the cucumber wrapped KC Rainbow Roll. Following that is the JB Roll and, for a more unique flavor and texture, the Three Musketeers roll. If you're interested in something with a very unique, maybe even earthy flavor (not a bad thing in this case) the Slim Lady, which is wrapped in bean curd, is very interesting--though we've only ordered that once.

This place also has a great, daily happy hour with excellent drink and appetizer options. It's a fairly priced place overall, though the Happy Hour deals are definitely a great value.

“Always have to go to Lemon Grass when visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

A friend and I flew into south FL for a quick girls' escape to visit my local friend. Only able to have 2 dinners while there, Lemon Grass was hands-down no choice not to go. See, a few years ago my friend from home was in Delray and I was meeting her in Orlando so I asked her a favor: please get some Lobster Monster take-out and bring it to Orlando! She was hooked and that was with the take out so I had to bring her there. We made an 8:00 reservation (in which the called to verify that day) and when we walked up a few minutes before (passing the waiting crowd), it was "Right this way". We were seated at a great table outside and began our culinary delight of a night. The Lobster Monster (lobster sushi which includes a lobster tail tempura) was as good as I had it during my August visit...as good as my visit the year before and so on. In fact, the table next to us saw it and had to ask what it was, which was the same way I was introduced to it. They loved it as well. We also shared the Drunken Noodles" with beef and it was devine. The tables are close together so not a place to have a quiet dinner but the service and food as well as the great crowd watching on the famous Atlantic Avenue are beyond worth it.
