One of the best quality food and service I have had around the area. Staff was very polite, friendly, and mannerful.

We arranged to celebrate a milestone birthday in the dining room here on a Saturday evening with nearly 30 family and old friends. Advance arrangements were efficient. We opted for a preselected choice of appetizers, free choice on the night from their extensive entrée menu, naan, with individual choices of wine, beer or soft drinks. The staff handled the logistics... More

I was recently stuck at Richmond airport due to storms and had to spend the night. There wasn't much to do and looked around for a good Indian restaurant. Lemon cuisine was highly rated on yelp. The restaurant's exterior was not great, but so was the area it was located in. I am not familiar with Richmond, but I can't... More

Don't be fooled by the exterior. Once inside, it's clean and welcoming. Large table for lunch, about 12 of us. I ordered the lamb korma. The portion is huge with 3 slices of naan and a plate full of rice. The lamb korma was a good size too, tasty and totally filling. The dessert dish looked like fruit salad in... More

Enjoyed a nice lunch here. The place was clean and the food was as good as, or better than, any Indian restaurant I have been to.

Today was the first time I've been here in a year. On the positive side the staff were super friendly, but our waiter was a bit too attentive visiting our table at least every 5 minutes or so. What really disappointed me was the blandness of the food. What has happened to the flavor? Even the peshwari naan, previously one... More

From the outside you wouldn't know it, but this is the top restaurant for (close to) authentic Indian cuisine. Do not be discouraged by the outside because it becomes a semi palace once your open the door. Friendly service and more than enough food. Quite tasty.

I've been to Lemon about 10 times. Several months ago I would have rated it 3 to 4 stars, but with the new chef and excellent staff I'll give it five now. We've dined there twice in as many weeks and it is superb. If you like curry, this is divine. Try the lamb Rogan Josh or the shrimp curry... More
