I ate in the Lemongrass with my Wife and two kids last week.
We opted for the early bird menu.
My kids are aged 6 and 7 and are still aquiring the taste of different foods, so it was kind of a leap into the unknown for us as we were not sure how Thai was going to go down.
We were greeted by our very friendly waiter and shown to our table.
Within seconds, the kids wre given colouring sheets and crayons to colour with so they settled in straight away.
We ordered our food, and the starters came very quickly. We all enjoyed the starters very much.
The main course came out and unfortunately, our son (aged 7) wasn't very impressed with his spring roll (He was expecting something else entirely in his own mind), but we just ordered some ribs for him instead and that arrived in minutes and then everyone was happy again.
Dessert was delicious, and during the meal we were asked if we needed anything or if everything was okay by the very friendly waiting staff.
We can only compliment the food and the staff for the lovely dining experience, and for making the kids feel so at home.
We will definitely return when in Kilkenny next time.

My wife and I recently took advantage of a 'early bird' offer, last Bank Holiday Monday, and enjoyed one of the best Asian Meals that we have ever eaten. Lovely crisp & crunchy vegetables, the freshest prawn crackers any where and my noodles were to die for. The spare ribs were without doubt, the tenderest I've eaten and the portion size was just right. All in all, a very pleasant dining experience. We live 30 miles away but we'll be returning(more frequently), with the sole purpose of dining at The Lemongrass again.
On a final note, the staff were excellent, welcoming, friendly and highly efficient. Also nice to see the three Thai cooks in the open plan Kitchen. We can now also look forward to visiting their sister Reataurants...in Clonmel anyway!

We went to this restaurant on a weekday night on a recommendation from our host. The food is excellent, very fresh and with the right amount of spice. Parking space is nearby at a supermarke lot.

We visited Lemongrass after checking the Tripadvisor reviews. It was fairly early and it was about half full, but great, friendly service and wonderful food. Also very economical - two entrees, two mains and a reasonable wine for E 70.

My wife and I stopped in Kilkenny as she had never been there. We parked in the public carpark alongside the river and o0n the short walk to the shops we 'discovered' the Lemongrass Restaurant. We were amazed that such a restaurant could be found in a provincial town in Ireland. It would be less of a surprise in London, Dublin or Paris, but Kilkenny!

The food and service were excellent and we have no hesitation is recommending this restaurant to anyone who likes quality Asian food, properly prepared and served in an excellent restaurant.

There is a review further down by one 'Damian Murphy' which is completely spurious and not in any way fair or reasonable. His other reviews of other businesses are equally damning leaving one to wonder what his expectations or problems are. His review taints the reputation of a very fine restaurant and is what is statistically called an 'outlier'. As such it should be deleted as it is not helpful.
