Ordered Lemon Grass to go after working out. Order was ready for pickup and all our requests were met by the staff. Their food is delicious and tastes great in the restaurant or at home.

You can't go wrong with most of the dishes served at Lemon Grass. They have an expansive menu of mostly Thai dishes but also some salads that are more Vietnamese. Delicious sauces and good cocktails. The waitstaff are helpful and polite. There are three Lemon...More
