Was looking for some authentic Thai for dinner, and this place delivered. Nothing fancy, just delicious Thai food, flavorful, thoughtful and made with love. Papaya salad was top notch, well seasoned - curry had that faint hint of heat and full of fresh veggies. Thanks...More

Visited in July 2016 and the food was incredible. The best Thai food I have ever eaten. A warning however, the level of spice is incredible. I went for a 2 on their scale (1-10?) and I normally order on the hot side of medium....More

I had a unique and delightful experience dining in Lemongrass recently this week. The food, to put it lightly, was superb. Furthermore, the hospitality and kindness that I experienced are that of honest Portland folk looking to create honestly great dining experiences for its customers....More
