Service to order was slow. The food came in a reasonable amount of time. We had four different dishes. My daughter enjoyed her lemon chicken from the lunch menu. I had walnut shrimp and eggrolls, but I should have skipped the rice,

This is more a cafeteria than anything else. The food is very oily and comes from trays sitting under heat lamps.

Meals are usually served "Family Style" everyone orders and then you share. You can order take out and larger order for partys. Very low key, good food and reasonable prices.Have eaten there a lot.

Great little place to eat. Remodeled several years ago so that they can serve Lunch to go. Their "Pan fried green beans" are the absolute best!!! Crunchy, and extremely tasty. The Volcano Shrimp and Sizzling Beef plates are all excellent choices... Hot and sour soup is tasty as well as the Tom Yum Seafood. Enjoy

We eat at Lemongrass at least once a month. One of our local favorites. We've been going to Lemongrass 10 years plus. Same folks, same great service and delicious food all these years. The only reason I give a 4 is because the dining area could use some updating.

Have lunch here about twice a month with my golf group. Outstanding menu and amazing flavors from combination of chinese and vietnamese dishes. It is a BYOB place so it keeps the cost of dining down and you can select your own favorite from the grocery store next door. They have a buffet which is also good but I reccomend... More

In a strip mall near a grocery store and laundramat, not too far off the highway, easy to get to. Went in for a fairly late dinner on our first night on the Island. The food is tasty enough, generic Asian/Thai. Adequate service. Diner atmosphere. No booze. There are better options if you're willing to drive a little. Ohelo Cafe... More

The restaurant serves Asian dishes from China, Vietnam, & Thailand. And no it's not necessarily the best food I've ever had but it is good. Some of my favorites are the shrimp pad thai, chicken salad, fried calamari, won ton mein, sizzling rice soup, lemon grass chicken and my all time favorite...honey walnut shrimp. The portions are large. I have... More
