This excellent Thai restaurant is located in an old victorian hard to find house. The search is rewarded with first rate food .

I don't get the rave reviews about Lemongrass. I sometimes think people think they are "wrong" or "not hip" if they give a bad review when most are raves. It's walking distance from our house so thought we'd try it for the first time. When first walking in you look straight into the kitchen, which looked awfully messy to me-things... More

What I expect from a good Pad Thai is flat noodles, tenderized chicken, peanuts, egg, lime wedge, green onions, bean sprouts. What I got was a white round noodle, with a mushy egg like substance mixed into it, that was overly sweet. Big chunks of chicken as if they were pulled off the chicken and just thrown in the the...

I'll start with the positives; the food was very good and the woman cooking served it herself. She was very nice. I asked if it was her business and she said yes it is, for 23 years. That's it for the positives. The initial impression walking in the door is a quaint old house with period furniture. It smelled like... More

Visited in July 2016 and the food was incredible. The best Thai food I have ever eaten. A warning however, the level of spice is incredible. I went for a 2 on their scale (1-10?) and I normally order on the hot side of medium. Thoroughly recommended to anyone if you are anywhere in the Portland area.

I had a unique and delightful experience dining in Lemongrass recently this week. The food, to put it lightly, was superb. Furthermore, the hospitality and kindness that I experienced are that of honest Portland folk looking to create honestly great dining experiences for its customers. The location itself was as charming as the food served on my dinner plate, from... More

My family and I have been going to this restaurant for over a decade! Shelly, the owner and cook is a wonderful lady! When she has I few seconds free she often comes out ad goes to each table greeting all the patrons and thanking them for coming. There is only one waiter as there are only a few tables.... More

The hours are short so make sure to check this out prior to going. The food was quite good and is prepared fresh. We had the garlic chicken and vegetables which was extremely tasty. Everything on their menu is seemingly good, depending on your tastes. You cannot get a pot of tea, however, it is poured separately so does not... More

This Thai restaurant has a number of honest to goodness Thai dishes. The servings are big so careful to not over order.

Our actual visit was in April 2010, but when someone asked me for the name of "that great Thai place in Portland," I realized I hadn't written a review and needed to remedy that! Here's the deal... I would go there at least once a month if I lived in Portland. The food was amazing! The owners run this little... More
