Great restaurant for dining in a more stylish way than some of the other popular places. Excellent service, sophisticated environment, and great for taking your Syracuse student out for more than just "real food". It's special AND they take reservations. Thank you Lemon Grass for not lowering your standards.

Ate here for lunch on Saturday-they apparently don't have a lunch menu Saturday so had the dinner menu. Food was excellent, pricy but delicious, a nice splurge. The place was clean, quiet with attentive friendly staff.

Stopped in for lunch on my way back to hotel. Very nice inside. My seasonal spicy butternut squash soup with shrimp was very tasty. I stuck with shrimp pad Thai and found it so much better than most places. Fresh, flavorful and delicious. Would definitely go back again. A terrific spot.

A friend and I didn't know where to go for lunch on a visit to Syracuse so as there aren't many Thai restaurants where we are that we enjoy, I chose this restaurant. The restaurant was moderately busy and the service was prompt and the food came out in reasonable time. I had a Thai hot pot with prawns (i.e.... More

I was expecting great from the other reviews. It was fair but certainly not great. My "hot" dish wasn't hot at all and my wife's dish was also fairly plain. 13 dollar drinks...cmon. it deserves to be middle of the pack in ratings. Nothing was bad but not the great meal I was expecting or hoping for.

We sat outdoors and enjoyed the music of a talented combo. The music was loud enough for all to enjoy, but did not interfere with the ability to have a conversation. Our server was helpful in explaining the menu offerings. The coconut shrimp appetizer was a wonderful blend of sweet and spicy. The Pad Thai chicken entree was light and... More

We really enjoyed our lunch, which was more of a "linner" because it was a lunch/dinner for us. The décor is beautiful. The service was professional. The menu offered a lot of good choices. We ordered two of the three rolls they offered. One was a crepe with jumbo lump crab, beautifully presented. The other was a spicy tuna tartare.... More
