This is one of my favourite restaurants in London. The food is always top notch and it's a cute small restaurant tucked away in the backstreets of Camden. It's usually always busy so worth booking if you can get through on the phone, the owner is also the chef (with a couple of waitresses to help out) so they are not there during the day to answer the phone. The service can be a little slow sometimes as a result of this too but it's always worth the wait. They do take away (collection) and always pop in a small bottle of wine or an extra starter. I've tried many different things on the menu and all have been delicious but my favourite is Fish amok and the leek cakes. I think it's a must in London and i believe it's the only Cambodian place in town!

I have been coming to Lemongrass for 18 years and it has never failed to disappoint. Light fresh dishes with fantastic flavours are what's on offer. There is only one chef, and he cooks within sight of the diners however you hardly hear him, apart from the odd sizzle of sauces.
The restaurant is not much to look at from the outside but the food inside is wonderful, as is the service. My favourite restaurant.

I've been eating at Lemongrass for years. The freshly cooked food never disappoints and it continues to be exceptional value for money. Although I'm no longer a local, it remains my favourite local restaurant

We loved this cute little restaurant. The Cambodian prawn soup, crispy aromatic duck, and garlic mushroom starters were fresh, fragrant, and delicious. The mango salad and ginger chicken were also superb. And the bomb was the "banana cake", sticky rice with banana with coconut sauce steamed in banana leaf. A great surprise - will definitely be back!
