The spring rolls were delicious! I asked for a pad thai without peanuts, with chicken and vegetables. All my requests were perfectly fulfilled! It is the kind of meal that makes you satisfied without feeling your stomach heavy.

We are big fans of this place. We go pretty much whenever we can all agree on pho. We go to Super 88 when we can't agree.

Its large menu is a combination of Vietnamese and Thai offerings. The times we (wife and I) have been there, service has been very attentive and they explain the dishes very well for first time comers. They offer quite a number of dishes for people that is gluten sensitive and it is cooked separately from the other meals to avoid... More

We ate in this big, Vietnamese restaurant on the first night of our holiday, exhausted from a long day of travelling. The menu is large and includes vegetarian choices even though it is not a strictly vegetarian restaurant. Our food was excellent and inexpensive and the service was exceptionally quick. We would definitely go back there and we would both... More

A very nice experience at this large Vietnamese restaurant. Lovely attentive service and a huge menu. We came especially for Pho, the soup everyone seems to love. And it was warming on a cool spring evening. The beef shumai Pho was plenty to eat. Thin wafers of beef were almost unimportant to thetas of the broth veggies and plenty of... More

Came here for dinner with the family. The quail starter was ok. The rest of the meal was a disaster.... the food is covered in sauces there is no care, no subtlety... certainly we are not coming back!

Met a friend here at her suggestion. Service is great - warm and welcoming. Food is mediocre. Some dishes were tasty and fresh (shrimp with a pepper sauce), others (mango chicken) tasted like an overlooked Lean Cuisine complete with rubbery chicken.

Pho Lemongrass is a moderately expensive Vietnamese place that is really only good at pho -- and not a lot of choice there. Every time I've been dragged there, I've watched as some poor slob has ordered something that wasn't pho and been horrified by the grease, salt, and general incompetence. And the prices don't work if you're going to... More

Our kids live a block away and we've eaten here before, but never had a take-out. The take-out wait was reasonable and the food again was excellent. We're happy that this restaurant is within walking distance. We're going to return often.

Went here for lunch with two friends. I was initially a bit put off by the decor of the place, but once the food arrived, I was happy! We shared three dishes: mango chicken, sugar cane shrimp and a beef dish (I think it was the filet mignon). Food was delicious, portions were good and service was very good. Overall... More
