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)

What do you get when a pilot and a flight attendant partner to open a business together? The one and only LEMONGRASS! The food was excellent and in line with the very best of Thai cuisine. The service was a little slow considering the restaurant was relatively quiet. Overall, a great choice!

I had an entertainer coupon and have been looking for "my thai" place in Abu Dhabi. Lemongrass did not dissapoint. The service was quick and attentive. We just ordered to main dishes- the massaman beef curry (plus white rice) and pad thai with shrimp. It was superb. I've never seen the egg wrapped around the pad thai noodles, it was very interesting and tasty. The curry was also yummy. The beef was so soft and just melted in your mouth. The portion size of the white rice was small, but the main courses were very well sized. We didnt finish everything and took the rest home and I'm excited about finishing it off tonight! haha

Tried this place for the first time last week on a weekend lunchtime. Within 30 minutes of sitting down the place was full, so expectations were high. Starters were good and quantity very good value, same with the main courses, and ended up with too much to eat!

Main courses were OK, if a little too rich. Mussaman curry was far too 'gloppy' and sweet compared to what I have had in Thailand however, and was a put-off. Starters were good though if not exceptional.

Service patchy and sometimes a little too eager - taking plates away before food was finished isn't appreciated. But apart from that the place was busy and they coped well.

Would go back for a casual lunch, but order less next time. Prices average for a sit down mall restaurant, and was good value.

I was a regular in Thai LemonGrass Dubai, even the one in Battuta Mall (Lemograss express) made the best THAI Pineapple Chicken in Dubai, one of my favorites diners.

Came to the one in Abu Dhabi, yes nice ambience, dim light, good service. Menu was 20DHS more expensive than the one in Dubai, fair enough maybe higher rents in Abu Dhabi. I ordered my fav, Pineapple chicken with steam rice, satai and thai shrimp fries. And all i got was fried bread crumbs!

The "chicken" in the pineapple chicken was pretty much non-existant, the bread crumbs covering the chicken pieces were hard, barely any chicken in them and small in size, the portion was also minimal compared to what i used to get in their Dubai establishment. There was also alot of "junk" veg thrown around to compensate for the lack of chicken...Rice wasn't freshly steamed, didn't like it at all and paid a higher bill than what i used to pay in Dubai. Well no thanks!

LemonGrass Abu Dhabi, you have a long way to go, or maybe there is no hope, i'll give you another chance in a few months and try again :)

It is such an amazing restuarant, when I enter for the first time, the restuarant manager told me in confident: you will come back, when I taste the food, I told her, sure I am in shaa Allah !
Food is done in a proper way, the real Thai food, also the portions are quite large, I ordered two plates, I barely could finish them both !
I encourage every one to go there, next time in shaa Allah I will be having some photos to present it here.
