Lemon Grass actually has three locations. This one is in downtown Olympia, but they have additional restaurants in Tumwater and Lacey Wonderful fresh Asian/Thai food. Great variety on the menu. Have never been disappointed I have had Thai food in other locations in other cities, but I consider this consistently the very best

Hands down this is my favorite restaurant. Great food, great people and priced to please. Its only down fall is many others think the same way...its busy and for all the good reasons. If your not a fan of Asian Cooking this place has changed many minds.Its really good. Check out their website...they also have 3 other locations nearby.

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. . The Fresh Spring Rolls were outstanding. My Honey Walnut Shrimp had too much breading though. I had to peel it all off so I could get to the shrimp. Shrimp was very good otherwise.

Great food, nice cozy atmosphere, and the service is usually quite good. Grandpa's ice cream shop down the block is a great follow up for dessert!

I really wanted to love this place based on the previous reviews. We were stopping in Olympia for a night and we chose this place for dinner.

There are 3 Lemon Grass restaurants in the Olympia area and all are good. The Lacey/Hawk's Prairie restaurant is the largest, the prettiest, and has a full bar and a banquet room. Food is always excellent and the service is almost always good as well. A favorite.
