Well, we've come here a couple times and it was never my favourite Thai restaurant. That may have changed this last time when our visiting friends decided to treat us to dinner. My red curry with prawns was exquisite....it had that wonderful Thai basil that...gives it a unique flavour. The prawns were perfectly cooked. And the portions seemed more than before....and I ended up being quite satisfied. My friends really enjoyed their dinner as well. The service was friendly....and while it took awhile, that's not a problem when the food is good.More

Waited an hour and a half after being seated for food to arrive. When it came, it came so staggered that half the party had finished eating before the other half’s dishes arrived, and one person’s dinner didn’t arrive at all before we had to...go. Food was fine but absolutely not worth the wait. Waiter was unapologetic and refused to offer a refund, only a gift certificate, in exchange for the food that failed to arrive in time. Will absolutely not go back, and would not recommend.More

An extensive menu, but I never got past the specials. I had the seafood medley served as a curry (choice of red or green). Why rice is an optional add, I don't know, can't imagine having it without rice but there you go. It was...delicious, my partner reserved half of theirs to go, me I just kept eating the whole thing, it was chock full of seafood throughout, nit just a random sampling. Staff was attentive and helpful on what was clearly a busy night. This has been a consistently great satisfying experience.More

We enjoyed a tasty lunch here with friends. Extensive menu! Food was hot and delicious. Pad Thai was great! Table service was slow. We had a bit of a longer wait than usual for a lunch meal and waited again to pay (not busy in...restaurant) but the food was worth it! Very delicious! Will return to try something new!More

Review: Just tried Lemongrass (take out) for first time on the advice of friends. We're big fans of Thai food and typically order from Baan Thai or Little Thai Place. We ordered crispy squid, spring rolls, red curry and chicken phadthai. Delicious!, but the portion...size of the curry and the phadthai were ridiculously small - dissapointed. On a taste/quality scale I would rank it better than Little Thai Place and on par with Baan Thai. Considering the small portion size and the price point higher than both local competitors, I think we are likely not to return 🙁 Sorry, we like to support local business, but feel there are better options.More

Due to COVID, they are just doing delivery and outdoors on one of their two patios. The patio in the back has one very large table, and the one in the front has a bunch. The place was pretty busy when we went there with...lots of takeout orders, and our poor server was being run off her feet. But she did admirably well. I do wish, however, that they would go back to proper plates and silverware rather than all the disposable waste. The Garlic Prawn with beansprouts and choi was delicious----a lovely garlic sauce. But so small! It probably would have helped if there had been more of the vegetables. We also ordered the kow phad krapow fried rice---which again was very nice, especially if you pour the garlic sauce from the prawn dish on it. But again....it wasn't all that big. Two dishes split between two people. Bill, with no drinks and a 20% tip was a little over $42. I was still hungry. But good, though. We orderedMore

This restaurant has some cozy tables at the front for “couples” dining, along with a more open space at the back for larger groups. I’ve been here a few times and the food has ranged from average to very good, depending on the dish ordered....I’ve had the Green Papaya Salad in the past, as well as the Red Curry Chicken, both of which were quite good. This time I tried the Green Curry Chicken. It came with a small bowl of White Rice. The dish was fairly authentic, but did lack some flavour. It also lacked a key ingredient in Green Curry dishes, which is Eggplant. The Curry was a bit watery than I like and could have used a bit more Coconut Milk to thicken it up and add more flavour. The heat level was medium, which was just right, not too hot, yet not mild. I was mildly surprised that my bill included a $3.00 up-charge for the small bowl of white rice that came with it. That pushed the price of this dish at almost $20.00. While the menu doesn’t list the Green Curry to be accompanied by the rice, they should ask the customer if they want to add a side of rice, instead of just automatically bringing it and then charging you at the end. It appears that the customer doesn’t have a choice of ordering a side of rice. At the very least, if they charge you for a “Large” White Rice, they should be serving you a larger portion than the small bowl it comes in. Prices were fairly high, compared to better Thai restaurants and considering the quantity of food you receive. Service was very accommodating, friendly and prompt. This restaurant is pretty busy on the weekends and they do have a decent patio in the summer. For authentic Thai food, I would rate this as average to good, but not great. There are better Thai restaurants out there.More

Went with friends for dinner and we all very much enjoyed the service and the food. We ordered a variety of items to share which included the Prawn Red Curry with Pineapple, Praram Long Song with Beef, Cashew Chicken, and Cream Prawn Salad. To complete...the meal we added a couple of bowls of the Large Steamed White Rice. It was a perfect amount of food for the 4 of us and gave us some leftovers. The restaurant was busy and we were glad to have a reservation. Our server was very helpful when we asked her recommendations on a couple of our choices. We will go back and they have good parking in the rear of the restaurant.More

Had the Pad Thai. It was hot, the spices were perfect and lots of nuts and sprouts on top. This lunch special is an excellent deal, as it comes with spring rolls and soup. I saved half my noodles for lunch the next day.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, in a great part of town....with no loud music disrupting, and a pleasant decor. It's actually quite big....we were in the front section, but in the back there are a whole bunch more tables. Washrooms....you have to go up...a set of stairs. Our server was.....personable. At times too much so, as we couldn't seem to discuss our order possibilities without her overhearing it and chiming in about other possibilities. We ordered a large Tom Kha Goong soup---coconut based with prawns. We were a little disappointed that the 'large' seemed substantially smaller than a large soup we'd order at other Thai restaurants. But they were generous with the prawns. The broth was nice....but we wished there were some other vegetables, and not just mushrooms and those inedible leaves---and some chewy and woody lemongrass. The PadThai was comparable to padthai's at most thai restaurants. Which, to my mind, makes it very good.More
