We've been coming to Lemongrass Bistro for several years, ever since TK started the place.

Still, they make an excellent Mai Tai and the Crispy Duck is very good.

Nice selection, friendly staff and tasty Thai... what more could one ask for?

Fresh and varied menu with good service. Fusion cuisine with Thai, and Asian menu. The soft shell crab, calamari, are very good appys and every main I have had was excellent.

Drinks and dinner very good but pass on the oyster shooter appetizers. I ended very sick from them. Good service and great happy hour.

It was a Sunday evening and we were looking for a new Thai restaurant to try. We found this one tucked between two other restaurants, and found a parking space, hurrah, it's a small parking lot, but no fear there are free public parking nearby. We ordered the Pad Thai and Pho. The Pho was surprisingly delicious, but I'm not... More

I like this place. It is small, and has some outside tables. It is a Thai based menu, but has some great spin offs. Poke, soups, salads etc...

We were a party of 12 celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Ages ranged from 10 to 75. Everyone enjoyed the wide selection of entrees , appetizers, and Desserts. The food was served hot and was delicious. Don't skip desserts!. Loved David our Server, attentive and made good suggestions.

Love this restaurant, never a disappointment. The green curry, the Lemongrass Shrimp and the Pad Thai are all very good. The staff is friendly. There is outdoor seating as well and indoor seating. The food is always good and fresh with fresh fish specials on the menu. Good selection of vegetarian meals.

I was staying at the nearby Holiday Inn Express so my wife and I visited here for convenience and were very pleased with our meals and drinks. We loved the coconut shrimp (got it both times) and both of our entrees (pad thai and chicken stirfry) were tasty. Awesome mojitos too!
