Best resturant in San Francisco, bar none. Fantastic service, great value, exquisite food. Some reviewers have quibbled about how authentically Thai some of the dish choices are, ..they could grow up, and choose a different dish.

My sister, nephew (18), and I stopped by Lemongrass for a quick bite to eat. For just stumbling upon it we were pleasantly surprised. We shared a few dishes. The "hot" steak salad wasn't hot in temperature like we asked.

This is a sit down and take out restaurant. I was there with my son and it took over 20 minutes to get our meal. It's okay for the money but I don't think I will go back.

Beautiful authentic Thai food with delicious fresh ingredients. We loved it so much we went back twice. Try the "asparagus lovers" special. Prawns, scallops and lightly stir fried asparagus in a delicious Thai ginger and soy sauce. Beer is very reasonable too. We have been travelling in the U.S. for the last 3 weeks and it's the best food we... More

Popped in for an impromptu Saturday night dinner: - large restaurant with many tables available (we dined relatively early for a Saturday night) - plenty of choice on the menu (perhaps too much!) including lots of vegetarian options - we all had curries and enjoyed the flavours, portion sizes plentiful and well cooked meats - fast and attentive service -...

I wish I'd read the other reviews before ordering the Pad Thai - tinned spaghetti is a good description. The green curry was OK but the chicken looked and tasted like reconstituted meat. Even the green tea was horrible. There must be better Thai restaurants in SF than this.

A very nice Thai place in Polk street in Russian Hill. The ambience is standard Thai and the food was delicious. We planned to dine in at first and ordered drinks. But due to a minor kiddie emergency we had to leave shortly packing our food. I took the Iced tea which was super delicious. For food, I went for... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
