As my son and his partner were over from the Uk we decided to celebrate Valentines Day with them at Lemon Grass. We travel to Thailand regularly and the food was as good as we have sampled over there. The only down side was that we were placed in a side room that looked like it was used as a small private dining room and the air conditioning was a bit too cold. But given that we only booked on the day and it was Valentines Day we were pleased they could accommodate us at short notice. The cost was very reasonable, so much so we thought at first they had forgotten to add in the drinks.... they hadn't. Great experience.

Have been here several times and the staff are always pleasant although sometimes there is a language barrier. Meals are always good but recently plates of food have been getting less in quantity. I guess this is due to rising costs and overheads. There is plenty of variety in the menu for the evening but the lunch time menu is very sparse in variety. All said I would dine there again.

They cater for small or larger groups .
I like the way each gives an order then dishes are pooled so that we get to try different flavours. .

Great food. although the staff/owners english is not good. Twice we have been, twice I have told them NO MUSHROOMS. (my other half has an allergy) twice they have put mushrooms in the meals. Still very tasty, cheap and quick.

The food and drink selection at this restaurant is generally delicious although we notice the portions of some dishes getting smaller. The service is a bit variable. It depends on who you get. Sometimes get a very friendly and chatty waitress but other times we get someone who makes mistakes, slops soup on your table and forgets to bring the drinks. Tonight was a night like that and we couldn't wait to leave. It seemed like one "big" table of large eaters was getting all the service and others like us were not being attended to as well.
Won't be going back to this place in a long while, it is a little disappointing. Also the restaurant when full has a surreal HIDEOUS din in it plus yes in winter you are freezing.
