Spent almost as much time laughing with the good-natured and friendly owner and servers as enjoying their affordable, satisfying eats. Standard menu fair (largely Thai and western dishes), full bar for those seeking and one of the best damn masaman curry dishes on the island served in an unpretentious and welcoming environment. A good spot.

We gave this a go as it was number on for Phi Phi on Tripadvisor. Our meal ( a whole fish in lemon sauce and a fried rice) was definitely clean and nice however I wasn’t blown away. Would definitely say go in for a cheap and tasty meal. The staff seemed more interested in watching their nightly soap opera... More

This restaurant has much Thai dishes to offer. Great price, you can see how they make your meals rite in front of you. The most important is, the food is awesome. But I would suggest the owner to redecorate the space for more cheerful surrounding. -Audi-

The restaurant doesn't look like much, but don't let that turn you off. The food is SUPERB! Traditional, simple Thai dishes that will keep you coming back for more. And what's better than watching the wonderful chef create your entire meal from scratch right in front of your table. It doesn't get much better than Lemongrass.

Here on trip advisor it says the price is 80 to 400 dollars. That is WAY off! Not sure where they got that number from. Anyway, if you like Thai food and are on Koh Phi Phi, this is a place you have to try at least once.

Great menu, excellent food and delightful staff. The oepn kitchen allows you to watch them cook, it was clean, the produce fresh but the best part was the taste! There were so many great dishes we kept going back night after night to try them all. They even cooked a fish my husband caught, it was sensational and really inexpensive.... More
