Description: Lemongrass Thai Restaurant offers a blend of Thai taste senses - spicy, tangy, sweet and sour, accentuated with traditional spices, treated in a contemporary ambiance. Offering traditional Thai cuisine in a modern aesthetical environment was the reasoning behind the conceptualization and successful launch of Lemongrass Thai Restaurant in Dubai. Fresh earthy tones and energizing hues have been combined with natural materials to create a warm and welcoming feel, thereby replacing rustic interiors and gold commonly associated with Thailand. Lemongrass the only Thai restaurant in Dubai that does not artificially enhance any of their dishes by adding Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)

Good light food. Decent service. Good for a quick bite!!!qthough having a full service restaurant will get more guests rather than being in a food court

“The set up is nice but that's it”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

I went with the family for dinner. I wouldn't recommend this as there were only a few dishes that were edible which is such a shame as it’s a nice restaurant (set-up).

The service plates smelled either of fish or curry. I complained and I got them changed. We ordered tom yam soup and the tom yam noodle soup. Both had prawns that were not fresh as you can taste the fishiness when you bit into the prawns and the soup as a whole. Not good. The beef chilli salad tasted gamey even though it was a spicy dish. The beef in black pepper sauce also tasted gamey and it doesn’t have a nice consistency. All of the above has put me off the food.

If you are going to eat there I would recommend the lemongrass vegetarian set and the satay chicken for starters. Skip the soups. For main, order the green curry and the panaeng curry both with chicken. Keep with the plain rice as the veggie rice and noodles aren't great.

I expected more as I like going to the restaurant in Dubai!

“Fabulous first meal”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Dined at this restaurant a couple weeks ago and had a very good first impression. The restaurant is located inside Mushrif Mall which allows for free and easy parking in busy Abu Dhabi. The best part is that it's on the quiet 3rd floor and away from the busy shopping areas of the mall. The interior of the restaurant is quite elegant with subtle Asian influence, very beautiful.

We ordered two appetizers, lightly fried hammour filet with tamarind sauce on the side and a spicy mango salad (to die for!). We shared a pad Thai dish for our main. Everything tasted very authentic and delicious. Too bad that they ran out of the dessert items we wanted to order. Service was friendly, prompt and accurate; our bill came to a reasonable 160 AED, including two soft drinks.

Highly recommend and will go back for sure!
