Excellent and engaging sushi chef. He knows his stuff and when I have asked him to make me something special he does not disappoint. They have a good selection of sake and wines too.

We are so glad for Lemon Grass! Everything we try is excellent! From the red, green or yellow curries, to the sushi...its all very good! I love the crab salad, which could come as a whole meal as far as I'm concerned! The Lucy roll and others are excellent! We always take friends there when they are in town, and... More

The food is a treat for those who enjoy Asian cooking. The ambiance is quiet and relaxing... a good place to go to visit with you table mates. We go every time we are in Maryville.

Having recently moved to Maryville, we were eager to try new restaurants. Lemon Grass was recommended to us early on but then someone else said never go there because their Pad Thai was terrible. This goes to show that one person's opinion should not trump all others. Granted, the plain exterior didn't beckon us to come on in and try... More

We either order take out or sit at the sushi bar. I love the soups and sushi while my wife likes pad thai. This makes afull meal for us and we don't feel too bloated.

Lived here all my life and I just tried lemon grass for the first time. It's small but very nice inside. Our server, Jess, was great. He was attentive and so kind. We ordered sushi and the spicy basil chicken. Very good. Not the best Thai I've had in the area but definitely very good. I highly recommend visiting!

I have been to Lemongrass several times, and always thought it was ok, but today is was mediocre at best, and teetered on being poor. We ordered basil rolls as a starter. I ordered soup, and beef cabbage wraps. My wife ordered salad, and pork cabbage wraps. Of course the basil rolls, my soup and my wife's salad all came... More
