Consistently good food and very friendly togo service – We go here regularly for lunch and have always been happy and satisfied with the quality and consistency of their food. And $8 for their lunch special is really a good deal (entree, appetizer, and drink). I've also been very pleased with their togo service. Always prompt and pleasant.
I FOUND IT!!! – Having been in the restaurant business in the past for many years, I have very high standards. Food Quality at Lemongrass is amazing, the must have dish is their Red Curry Chicken. Please don't expect great ambiance or decor. However the service is very attentive and courteous. The price is on par. You owe it to yourself if you truly like authntic Thai food to try it out. Thanks guys You are on the LIST!!!!
Good food nice clean restaurant if dining in – I have liked the food I have ordered from here. My husband and I enjoy the red and green curry chicken, the spring rolls, the kids meal choices. Maybe a little pricey on the dinner meals.
maybe it was just me, but three trips and yuck – Well sorry guys I had to write this. My wife and I are from out of town where we use to have many very good thai restaurants. This one happens to be near our house and fell for the menu a number of times.
I will touch on three things, if these change they should run an advertisement.
1) Tom Kha Gui - chicken with coconut soup. There were really nothing in it. Not a pinch of lemongrass, maybe a piece of a mushroom floating around, not a drip of chili oil.... Tasted like they used skim milk. The worst !!! This happened on multiple occasions...
2) Pad Thai - eh.
3) Fresh Summer Rolls - cold ones, rice paper. You know the inside where you could find neats things like basil, mint, cilantro, maybe a little left over tofu, maybe carrot, vermicilli? Not here how about romaine lettuce and vermichilli. Ya know the dark sweet dipping sauce. Peanut sauce here only.
I wish this place was better. It made my do not call or stop list.
Sawadessee on Capital is pretty darn good, just small.
Best Thai Restaurant in the Triangle – being an Asian cook, i am already picky about pan Asian food. especially combined with my experience of working in a Thai restaurant before, i sampled every Thai restaurants in the area and Lemongrass is hands-down the most authentic. it has the essence of true home style Thai cooking. service is excellent as the staff always wear, as they call it, a "Thai smile." food serve FAST!!! they use fresh ingredients and give you just the right serving. the restaurant is clean and homey. the price is totally reasonable!
OUTSTANDING – We have been going to Lemongrass since they opened and immediately got hooked. We crave the delicious food and often celebrate special occasions there! Lisa and Charlie are like family now and simply the most gracious hosts and certainly the best Thai chefs around! The servers are extremely courteous and accomodating too. We have tried almost everything on the menu, all are delicious but our favorites are the Summer Rolls, Fried Calamari, Pad Thai with Tofu, Kee Mao, Hai Lum and Chicken Panang. Chicken yellow curry rates high too! You can ask for it to be almost no spice and request the condiment tray to spice it up to your liking. Or you can ask them to spice it up for you! Either way, you can't go wrong and you can't go wrong with anything you chooose from the menu. I actually rate Lemongrass ten stars but had to settle with what was available. Go soon and enjoy!
THE BEST THAI RESTAURANT IN USA – I LOVE THIS PLACE, THE WAITSTAFF IS SO FRIENDLY, THE FOOD IS SUPERB, THE PLACE IS QUIET AND NEAT. WE EAT THERE AT LEAST TWICE A WEEK.
Great place to go for Thai food – They have very good Thai food with fast friendly service. It is family owned and they know their Thai food! You should ask about what ingredients they use and the ?health? benefits and why they chose to use them.
I don?t like too spicy and they were able to accommodate me. But they can go more traditional and give you the really spicy stuff too if you ask too.
Outstanding! – Though the location is a tad out of the way for those not close by, it is a "must go". Consistently fantastic on every trip. Addictingly delicious with professional service.
There's better out there – My wife and I have eaten here on several occasions and have generally enjoyed it except for the most recent visit on Feb 20, 2007. The food is acceptable - but it is somewhat bland as far as Thai goes.
The restaurant is clean and has a nice, casual atmosphere. I cannot give this restaurant more than 4 out of 10 because they made it clear (in not so many words) that we are not their preferred type of customers. I grew a somewhat long beard since my last visit and I guess that they do not want to offend their yuppie customers. Well they can have the restaurant to themselves - we are not going back.
