Have been going to Lemon Grass for ten(10) years. My wife orders pretty well the same thing two out of three times. When she ordered it tonight she made a point of telling them "No Spice". The meal came out and it was not edible because it was so hot. I mentioned it to two people and the response was... More

For over a year I have been coming here, and each time I keep getting more & more disappointed. This use to be our choice for work lunches, but even everyone at work is fed up with their horrible attitude, lack of customer service,poor people skills and their quality of food is going down fast. I asked if one rice... More

Good selection on the main and lunch menus. Portions are ample and delicious. Not a long wait for food even if it is busy.

I love Thai, in Vietnamese food. But normally you have to find a restaurant dedicated to one or the other. This awesome restaurant serves both off the same menu! We stopped by here to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday (her recommendation), and had a very delicious meal. We had a friendly greeting at the door and were seated immediately. The restaurant...

I love Lemon Grass! It is one of my favourite restaurants and definitely my favourite for Thai food. I love the Chicken Cashew, which comes on a little warmer tray. The portions are generous and the food is favourful. I also enjoy the chicken with peanut sauce. My sister loves the vegetarian pad thai and my dad enjoys the bami... More

Very congested , tables are forced in spaces . Staff is unprofessional, rude , food is set on table without cutlery , you have to keep looking around to get waitress attention! Nobody comes to ask " how is the food " or do you need anything. The waiting staff makes you feel that they are doing a favour to... More

My friends and I go to Lemon Grass on a regular basis. It is our go-to. It is inexpensive, and you get a good sized meal. There are lots of gluten-free and dairy-free options. I have yet to be disappointed. The service is relatively quick, but the food is delicious. The food is very authentic. The restaurant is clean and... More

Packed on Saturday night. Good quick service. Duck with lemongrass sauce and noodles with chicken were excellent. Veg. pad Thai did not taste of anything SE Asian or peanuts but of tomatoes (like a bland pasta). As if the chef making the pad Thai was different from the one that cooked the duck. Will visit again but order the duck... More

Such a small restaurant tucked away in an out-of-the-way plaza, but understandably always busy due to the food, service, price and atmosphere. Being busy does not interfere with service and waits for food are never long. You can eat-in or order-out; either way, you cannot fail! Prices are excellent, and we've found ourselves drawn back numerous times, even taking relatives... More
