I have eaten at Lemongrass regularly since it opened last May. The food is always fresh, well presented, with lively flavors. The menu has grown since the restaurant opened. The Vietnamese sandwich (BBQ beef, pickled and fresh vegetables) is delicious, and a best bargain in Brunswick for lunch. Order it with a cup of vegetable soup and crispy carrot fries for a complete and satisfying meal. They use Standard Bakery baguette for the sandwich (try it with chicken or pork as well).
Service is excellent, professional, and friendly. The restaurant looks out on to upper Maine Street in Brunswick and is clean, nicely decorated and well lit with natural light. The owners and servers are lovely people doing a great job.
In terms of value, this restaurant is hard to beat. A complete dinner for 2, with wine or beer. Will cost less than $40. A bottle of Prosecco, a window table for two, fresh Indochine food, and a good friend makes this especial place for a date.

Lemongrass is a favorite dinner spot for my family. The food is fresh and cooked perfectly (no soggy overcooked veggies here). The expanding menu provides plenty of healthy choices, the service is great and we always leave satisfied.

Vietnamese cuisine. I lived in Vietnam for several years and found the pho (noodle soup) to be excellent, especially after I added the usual condiments. I liked the spring rolls, too. Limited menu, but the owners are gradually expanding the dishes offered. Pleasant ambiance and staff. The owners are delightful. Reasonable prices. The only purely Vietnamese food restaurant in the Brunswick area. A nice addition.

We stopped in here for lunch last week and were delighted with our meal as well as the surroundings and friendly, efficient service. The large photos of Vietnam on the wall made an excellent backdrop for our dining experience. I enjoyed the murals of motor bikes and flowers on the walls of the ladies room as well. The makings for my Pho were super fresh and the Pho broth was the tastiest I have ever had. My husband's Pork Bun lunch special was fresh, filling, and tasty. We will definitely stop here again!

The menu is limited and the flavors are repetitive. My meal was not very good. It tasted low budget and not special from any other main stream asian.. Not interested in going back..
