Good Experience – Quiant place has great food and service. Portions are big enough and wine selection is decent.
Best Thai in Raleigh, I Promise! – I am Thai and I have never been more happy to have found this place. The staff is very friendly and they're always happy to see you. The Pad Thai, which is one of Thailand's most prominent dishes, has the perfect balance of sweet, sour, and salty flavors. Spice does not come with any dish except curry, so don't forget to request it. They have the freshest and sweetest mangoes in the summer and the mangoes and sticky rice dessert is a must-have. Their lunch special is incredible and I would come here for lunch everyday if I didn't have classes all morning. Even the thai tea and thai coffee are perfect! Go to this place!!!
Hot, Hot, Hot! – Whoa! My dish at Lemongrass Thai Restaurant definitely cleared my sinuses! They should bring out boxes of Kleenex with your utensils. Yes, their dishes can be hot and spicy - and this one was a little too hot for my particular taste - but the flavor was good nevertheless and the ingredients were fresh and colorful. My friend got a non-spicy dish that was really good. I'll probably take everyone else's advice and try the curry or the pad thai next time, and maybe request that the kitchen turn down the heat, but one thing is certain - there will be a next time!
MONEY WELL SPENT – Small, spotless, superb food! Consistant...Love the green curry, red curry & of course THE BEST PAD THAI....
Great Curry! – We were looking for Thai on Citysearch and heard about Lemongrass through this site. It has been a great find- we have to drive a little ways to get here but it is absolutely worth it! The service is wonderful and the food is incredible. We often take people here who are visiting from out of town and they are always pleased. Thanks for the recommendations!
Great food, very nice staff – We have been here twice, to date. I tired the red curry and it was absolutely fantastic. The second time, I tried the Yellow curry and that was very good as well, but my particular taste is for the red curry. My wife tried two different dishes. I can't remember what she ordered, but the first time her dish was not quite as good as the second time. We had two friends join us the first time and they like the food very much. It is a very plain, small place, but enjoyable atmosphere.
Very good food and friendly wait staff – Very good food. Slighty on the expensive side. Polite wait staff that is quick and friendly.
Comfortable and warm enviroment.
Overall a nice dining experiance.
Would recommend to friends.
So-so – I agree with the posters who said that the flavor is a little lacking. I've been eating thai for many years, and have learned to cook it. Lemongrass seems to have forgotten the fundamental principle that hot/spicy, sweet, sour, salty, and bitter are brought together in either one dish or several small ones in the same meal. Their ginger stir fry was flat, as was their vegetable stir fry; I could taste sweet and salty but nothing else. Their Pad Thai, though, is much better and I still occasion the restaurant, but when I order I try to keep their culinary limitations in mind. Awesome service, though!
very good service and food. – Many people are saying how your food is sort of bland but it is not at all
i live in canada myself and we have tons of thai places. And there is no comparison that was great food!DONT believe these people think that there just being stupid everything was great but there was one thing just small
-that you only have one song playing in the restaurant
I COULD care less i think the food is amazing and that is all that matters
you guys are great servers and cooks never listin to the negative comments
its all lies.
Best Thai In Raleigh – My wife and I eat at Lemongrass at least once a week. I can understand that the service can sometimes be slow, but it is not for a lack of effort. The waitstaff is extremely nice, and they always try to please. Sometimes when it is crowded they will get behind a little bit, but waitstaff's personalities will make you forget all about the wait. If you know this going in then there are no worries. The food is well worth the wait. I haven't had a bad meal there. The chicken red curry, kee mow noodle, larb, and pad thai are awesome. I would recommend trying the soups as well. They also have a sister restaurant in New York that I have eaten in as well. The owners know Thai food well and you will not be disappointed.
