We ate here with four friends. My husband was sceptical about Thai food but this meal has converted him. We had the banquet for $38 each. Starting with dumplings and spring rolls followed by pad Thai, mango chicken, green curry, rice and salt and pepper squid. Service was a little slow at times but we were with friends and hardly...

Friday at 7.30pm and the restaurant is full, luckily we'd reserved a table. Took an age to order drinks (while waiting we heard the next table complaining about the duck being tough). Decided not to order the duck. Food arrived and was average. While we were eating, there was a noisy panic of tables being dragged and chairs being reorganised,... More

As a Thai restaurant Lemongrass is no better or worse than many similar restaurants in Adelaide CBD. The prices are reasonable and the dishes good representations of "modified" Thai. But the real bonus is the Lunch Menu. A great selection at very good prices. Green Curry Chicken for $11.00 plus many other great value options.

Not too saucy like a some Thai restaurants tend to do. Out of five restaurants We tried for dinner so far, I would rank this 3rd behind Sosta (Argentine... More

I dined in this restaurant with my 11 colleagues.The food was average I guess I compared food in Bangkok when I was in Thailand last year. We had banquet for 6 people food and it was average and we did not even get salad. Thai salad is a signature dish for Thai food. One bottle of beer varies from $9.00... More

Spontaneous visit for dinner before a fringe show. Huge menu selection, gorgeous two level restaurant with street dining, nice wines and beer selection, very lovely staff. Choo chee is always a hit, loved the salt and pepper tofu and pad Thai also. Highly recommend for couples and also large groups, really pretty upstairs - I'd always request bookings now upstairs....

My first experience dining here was last Sat night during the Adelaide Fringe, We did not book & just walked in between Fringe shows. We had to line up for a short time but once a table became available we were quickly attended to, our order taken & drinks delivered & meal served in a short time. We had dumplings... More

We chose this place in advance before a Fringe show. We actually booked beforehand as well which was smart considering how busy the place was. Expected it to be as it is on the doorstep to the large Fringe areas. Food was really nice but the staff were ran off their feet. The menu is listed on the website as... More

On a beautiful festive night in Adelaide and the place was full. Good service and good tasting food. We enjoyed the duck red curry (mild), tofu Choo chee, green chicken curry (mild) and beef stir-fry with peanut sauce. Flavours were delicious. The only negatives : *we got our plates and cutlery after the food was served *not much meat in... More
