This consistently has delicious, authentic food. Each item is prepared fresh, and the use of spices in each dish is perfectly balanced. The staff are VERY nice, though one warning, there are times this place is BUSY!. So always ask them when it is busy (it changes with seasons). If you are in the beautiful city of Olympia, please stop... More

Nicole and her staff prepare the freshest Thai food you can find for miles around. Olympia is woefully short of good restaurants and the Lemon Grass in downtown Olympia is the exception. When we get tired of preparing meals at home we always opt for the downtown Lemon Grass for a fine meal.

They have a lot of great menu items, but one of my favorites is the mango salad with grilled shrimp. Another great menu item is the combination salad with noodles, egg rolls, grilled pork, and shrimp. Their food is a little pricey but it always tastes fresh!

My wife loves the Lemon Grass restaurant and I like it a lot too. She always gets the same thing: 7 Favor Beef. It is a really good dish. I like the Vietnamese and Tia food dishes. I get them medium high on the spicy level. Good stuff.

I took people out for birthdays and business meals on three occasions over two weeks. I have always liked Lemon Grass but thought that they were overpriced. However, I am unwilling to pay high prices for mediocre meals. Downtown is still the best location for food. It was not as busy as previously. Our business lunch was only average at... More

A very relaxing atmosphere and good food. Can be crowded on a weekend night, but its worth the wait.
