I was taken to The Lemon Grass for dinner by our hosts while on a short business trip to Dublin. The restaurant was located within a hotel that had a fading facade. There was quite a large group (about 12) so we had to sit across two adjacent tables - this did have the downside that it felt like we were two separate parties. The place had a dark atmosphere, I'm not sure if this was because of the dimmed lights or dark stained wall cladding, it certainly felt like we were in a noisy private room rather than an open plan restaurant - this is not a criticism as I quite liked the vibe. There was a mixture of couples and families eating at the restaurant on this Monday night. Drinks were offered quickly, although they were a little slow to arrive. A reasonable if unremarkable selection of beers and wines were on offer, by the glass and bottle. The food was very much asian fusion, I had a sashimi starter with a thai prawn curry for my main. The food was full of flavour although I felt the portions were a little on the small side. I did not feel hungry at the end so perhaps the food was more rich than I thought. As we were guests for the evening, I was not paying for the meal but a quick glance at the price list suggested this was a mid priced restaurant. Overall, I enjoyed the tasty fusion selection, I was a bit bemused by the dark decor and the oddly bustling ambience. A decent if unremarkable place to eat.
