I eat a LOT of Thai food. I love it. I ordered the "Green Lady" - salmon steamed in a cabbage leaf with carrots, pea pods and broccoli in a yellow curry sauce. The salmon was moist and delicious. The veggies were PERFECT - not overcooked at all. This place was crowded for a Sunday evening, now I know why.... More

Not really good one. Everything felt a little greasy and slightly ill prepared. I love Thai food because great Thai food is spicy but still very flavorsome. This was rather bland and un-imaginary. I will defiantly need to find a different Thai place than this one here.

There is always plenty of parking in Lexington Center and my friend and I always choose Lemon Grass for our lunches. The restaurant is small and pleasant and the food and service are terrific. The prices are reasonable and the decor is unassuming. We often get a window table that gives us a view of Mass Ave, the main street... More

Like this place. I will say that the food is good. And consistent. Very convenient for me. I tried almost everything, but my favorites are the crispy rolls and the yellow curry or the mango curry chicken and the pad Thai.The portions are generous: Two people can eat on one dish. A good Thai restaurant in the center of Lexington.

I have been to Lemon Grass several times and the food is slightly above average. There are better Thai restaurants in the area, but this one is the most convenient. They are really good for delivery and we have gotten orders delivered several times. Their ginger ice cream is outstanding and one of the best things on the menu.

We have only eaten in the restaurant itself once in 11 years ... it didn't go well, and we have never been back. We thought we'd order takeout as there are few Thai food options in Lexington, ma. The order was accurate despite some language issues ordering siam fried rice with only shrimp and no chicken/meat. The food was well... More

This is the place where we usually go when we craved for some good soup noodles in the areas. My son loved the coconut shrimp appetizer. I usually ordered Malay noodles, the spices and coconut cream satisfied my taste buds. The Boat noodles soup is nothing more than just beef noodles soup, similar to one you order at a Vietnamese...

I had heard good things about this restaurant and decided to give it a shot from the reviews. Unfortunately, while the portion sizes were quite large the food quality was only so-so. In addition, the service left a lot to be desired. We had ordered beers which were never delivered, and no one ever checked on us to see if... More

Historic Lexington center offers many delicious eateries. Lemon Grass offers delicious Thai food. The various curries are really delicious. Try the coconut crusted shrimp appetizer. All the appetizers and main entrees are really delicious.

Set in the old Pewter Pot Muffin Shop, this is a delightful Thai restaurant. It was hopping with dine and take out guest the Friday I visited. I used to be a more regular customer when I lived nearby. The restaurant is still as good as I remember it. Go there!
