“Organizational nightmare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

Food is good, but the staff is almost hopeless except for the more "senior" members. Waitresses are clueless, slow and extremely unprofessional. And do something about the line up of people you let in who just stand and stare at you until you are finished. You need a bigger location and better trained staff

“Delicious & Great Portion Thai Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2012

The restaurant is tiny and always packed, but the wait is worth it. The food is really good and the portion is big enough to share. My favourites are pad thai and nasi goreng (which is a chicken satay with peanut sauce on a bed of medium spiced rice - it also has baby shrimps)

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2011

We really enjoyed our dinner at the Lemon Grass. Try the crispy duck - it is heavenly! The atmosphere is casual, nothing special but clean and quiet. We were served by two servers - one quite friendly & helpful, the other one very reserved and non-communicative, though they both provided adequate service. The restaurant was fairly busy, this was about 8 p.m. on a Monday evening, so it must be quite popular to locals. Overall, I would say that the service & atmosphere was ok, but food was very, very good. We look forward to going back.
