Stopped here for a business lunch with a colleaugue and was VERY pleasantly surprised.

Food quality is above average, menu is larger than i expected - and it included two pages of gluten-free menu items.

Had the red curry chicken stir fry - just spicy enough to be interesting, as well as the shrimp rolls with peanut sauce.

All the food seemed very freshly prepared, and the seating area was spacious, clean and bright.

This was a very pleasant surprise in the Vietnamese food market place .... will be back!

Stopped by here for a late supper tuesday night and I was surprised to see the place was full. Obviously this is a popular dining spot for Vietnamese food!
My husband and I ordered a satay soup and I had the brisket soup and shared a salad roll starter. Very nice workers who were quick to get us a table and service was very good. We enjoyed our soup and glad they do not use MSG in their food.
We will now come here instead of driving long distances to find great food.
We will be back again !

Lemongrass boasts a large range of Vietnamese and Vietnamese inspired cuisine. We've eaten here nearly 40 times now and we've never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and recognizes the regulars. Take out is also easy and delicious. Overall, highly recommended!

I agree with the last review- the crispy spring rolls are awesome! We also enjoy the beef satay pho and always get it for take out when we are sick. We have eaten at Lemongrass about 5 times now and always love what we order. The chicken curry with peppers is also super good!

Love, love, love Lemongrass. They have the best crispy spring rolls, I've ever had. The Pho is excellent as well. Obviously, it's a great place. Always very, very busy at lunch no matter what day of the week!!
