While staying at a B&B in this area, we stopped there for diner. The menu has a lot of choice, cannot wait to return there. I had the thai dumplings and the seafood madness on great curry sauce. Excellent, fresh, yummy. Cheap heat, excellent food, will return for sure to try something else.

We walked to Lemon Grass and had a pleasant dinner. Food was good but not remarkable. Service was prompt and cordial.

Background: While walking in the Powelton Village area of University City in Philadelphia, we stumbled upon the restaurant and decided to try it. Verdict: While we only tried two dishes, the Evil Jungle Princess Dish was sinfully good! When we're in the mood for more Thai food, we'd like to come back and try some more dishes.

We stopped in for dinner and ordered the chicken satay and lemon grass soup as an appetizer. The soup was very spicy but good and the chicken satay was delicious. We ordered the Pad Thai and the Seafood Lover and both were good. The sticky rice and mango dessert was delicious. The service was very good.

We ate there twice. The first time we ordered pad Thai and mixed vegetable. We liked the mixed vegetable but found the pad Thai too sweet for our taste. The second time we ordered two mixed vegetable for take-away. I chose less salt for my vegetable and it was done very well according to my taste. It was near to... More

Order the appetizer with roasted coconut & peanut slices, served on lettuce boats, with delicious plum sauce based sauce. The stars indicating hotness are skewed in a way that makes you think it is hotter than you'd think. I love green curry, but was wary of the 4 *'s the first time I went. So I ordered a 2* eggplant...

Great food, good service, good prices! Lemon Grass is one of my favorite Thai spots in Philadelphia. A wonderful place to meet friends and catch up over a yummy bowl of green curry and thai iced tea!

Lemon Grass has an inexpensive lunch special that includes a soup, appetizer and entree. the portions are reasonable and the flavors fresh and tasty. The service is quick and helpful, even if the staff seem a bit beleaguered. The restaurant is a little dark and cramped, and it's not the best for large groups, but it's ideal for a quick... More
