“Love the curry”

I really enjoy going here and they have some really good curry dishes. They also do a wing special during the week on Wednesdays I think and the wings are so good. (Honey garlic and salt and pepper)

“Prime location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

There is a line-up of restaurants down near the water in Saint Johns... Gannons Seafood, St. John Ale House (SJAH), Lemongrass Thai, etc. All are in a great location... nice ambiance... and really HIGH prices. We had appetizers at Gannons (really expensive martini and raw oysters) and then moved on to Lemongrass, which shares a menu and kitchen with a Hot Pepper restaurant (name?).

Loved the waiter, Joel, until a group of insurance convention people flooded the place and then we pretty much lost him. He recommended some good local beer (Picaroon). We had Tom Yum soup (unusually dark in color and a bit too sour) and a humongous plate of Pad Thai. We asked for it HOT and it was... and very good too (much better than the soup).

Because Joel was so overwhelmed by the insurance salespeople, we ordered a second beer directly from the bartender and paid at the bar (so there was no waiting!)

Pretty good experience.

Went to go eat at what we thought was a up scale resturant..........waited atlleast 20 mins before a server even walked by....then we flagged her down to get menus food was great but it was over an 1 and a half to 2 hours by the time we sat down! Why so slow?? Didnt really seem like the mangement cared about service....but good food and drinks!
