This restaurant is the best Thai around. The massaman curry chicken is better than Taste of Thai. (Although Taste of Thai has better basil fried rice).

We have been going here for years. Small dining area so get there early. Sushi is great and other entrees are great as well. Quite, family environment. Parking is limited. Well worth the visit.

We were recently passing thru on our way home to Gatlinburg and stopped here because of all the great reviews which we had seen on line. The parking was fine. Service was mediocre especially considering it was not rush hour and the restaurant was not even close to full. Our food was slow in coming (apologies from the server), and... More

Just left here having dinner for the first time. Did not disappoint. Just as great as their lunch. Had pad Thai and it was awesome.

We stopped in to get something to go after spending the day with our Chihuahuas in Pigeon Forge. The building looks like an old renovated grocery store but don't let the exterior fool you! The inside is rather swanky and each table was set elegantly. We ordered the Pad Thai, one with chicken and one with chicken and shrimp to... More

It was my birthday and our CA son was in town to help me celebrate. He is a Sushi fan, so Sunday dinner enroute to the airport and his flight home was enjoyed at Lemon Grass. He likes their Sushi, my wife loves their Yellow Chicken Curry, and my mainstay there is Pad Thai with Basil Rolls for starters. As... More

Food was good but man were the portions small! I had crystal noodles. The parking lot can be interesting trying to get into. I would dine here again but hopefully actually leave feeling like I ate something.

Having both thai cuisine and sushi makes this a great place to make all members of your group happy. The fish of the day usually rocks and my wife loves a variety of sushi rolls. My last visit i tried the Masaman Kai which i really enjoyed but my favorite is still the Spicy Mixed Seafood...go enjoy and have fun... More

Don't judge this gem by the bland exterior. The service here has to be the best I have ever received outside of high end restaurants. The food is always good and the dining room appears very clean. The parking is indeed abysmal so we usually park across the street if that business is closed for the day. This place is... More

We are just in town for the evening and happily happened upon this little gem! We really enjoyed everything we ordered, particularly the Autumn Sushi Roll and Pad Thai with Shrimp! Our server, Charlie, was very friendly and knowledgeable as well! I would highly recommend this place!
