If there's anything I'm going to take away from our dining experience at this restaurant it's this. I absolutely love Canada. It's so refreshing when a restaurant is willing to accommodate to your dietary requirements. Our server, Matt was excellent. We told him we were vegan and he went back to the kitchen to check what can be made vegan.... More

Sounds funny for a Thai restaurant but they have a great craft beer selection. They are Lemongrass and also Peppers pub. Anyway great food and always a great selection of craft beers

This place has a broad menu, with something to suit most people. Our red curry was extremely good and there was good sized portions. I really like the eclectic vibe of this place. Server was friendly and knowledgeable. Much better than Splash in my opinion.

A nice little restaurant/bar. I was seated at my table and the chair was broken. Apparently, the place becomes a bar at night and furniture gets moved around (and maybe damaged?). Could have been a problem if I were heavier. Luckily, it didn't break more and I was able to change seats. The food was decent. They only have one... More

HI Molly, Thanks for taking the time to review us. There seems to have been some confusion during your visit with us as we are proud to offer the most vegetarian and gluten free menu options in the city. Every curry we offer has a vegetarian option and is actually stated on the menu. Above and beyond these options, we... More

Located downstairs (below grade) in Market Square, uptown Saint John. When I walked in, I actually had to ask if I found the right place. Looks like a simple pub...and it is. In addition to the the Thai menu there is also a traditional pub menu [I think they called it Peppers] and from the look of it, it doubles... More

We were looking for a lunch spot while exploring St. John. Lemongrass also has an associated pub named Pepper's Pub. We actually ordered from the Pepper's Pub menu. I had crab cakes, which were pretty good but not great. My wife had fish and chips. She said the fish was terrific. We were there on a nice early fall day,... More

Fun location on the boardwalk, great people watching. I got the Tom Yum Goong soup, which is usually a favorite of mine and the curried noodles for lunch. The soup tasted nothing like authentic Thai soup, it was spicy but otherwise had no flavor..I didnt finish it. The curried noodles had decent chunks of white meat chicken but the noodles... More
