We have been going to lemongrass for at least 10 to 15 years. Every time we go, we have consistent, excellent food. The garlic basil fish is so tasty and amazing I have not been able to make anything remotely close. They have a great...More

What I expect from a good Pad Thai is flat noodles, tenderized chicken, peanuts, egg, lime wedge, green onions, bean sprouts. What I got was a white round noodle, with a mushy egg like substance mixed into it, that was overly sweet. Big chunks of...More
