I suggest you ignore reviews from reviewers with a very limited number of reviews. I ate here twice for some reason. Laziness mostly. First night; the pork ribs appetizer turned out to be some tiny pork tidbits that were mostly bone, but the only way you could eat them was to hold them in your hand and gnaw. Taste was ok. Chicken curry was pretty much cookie cutter curry with a limited amount of chicken.

Second night: the appetizer, chicken satay, was served simultaneously with the main course. Server couldn't understand why that was a problem. Satay was undistinguished, but the main course Chicken with Lemongrass was pieces of chicken wrapped in a hard, non-edible skin. Impossible to unwrap with silverware--only bare hands worked. (Don't know why this restaurant has silverware) Basically, I ended up with chicken for an appetizer and more naked chicken as a main course. No side dishes. Called for the check and saw that I had been charged for "Jasmine Rice." Asked server to show me the invisible rice. No luck. Bottom line: adequate, but unimpressive food along with amateur-hour service.

Lemon Grass offers Khmer, Vietnamese and Thai selections. Each of my choices was delicious! Atmosphere of restaurant was quiet, relaxing and very clean. Service was cordial and helpful. The location is just a few yards off the main drag and not to be missed!

An overpriced expat eatery where servings are small and service is slow. Cocktails are very pretty, but otherwise nondescript. They also have sweet and sour dishes on the menu. You have to be over 60 to even remember such blast-from-the-past tasteless chow.
