About Lemongrass - Chichester

Just the word ‘lemongrass’ alone evokes the flavours and aromas of the Thai kitchen. At Chichester’s Lemongrass, you’ll find the best Thai food in town, all made from scratch and with the finest ingredients. The Chichester location is one of several branches – there are also outlets in Rustington, Petersfield, Horsham, Lewes and Crawley – in the area, but this particular one has its own flair thanks to executive chef Theerawat Phonophochai leading the way in the kitchen. With nearly forty years of cooking under his belt, the food he creates is truly traditional and exceptionally delicious. Found on St Pancras in the city centre, this is one restaurant that is certain to impress – book to snag a table before the rest.

Amazing food and excellent service as always. Have been a couple of times now and they never disappoint. Even on a busy Friday night the wait time is minimal and the food is fresh and delicious. My favourite place in Chichester!

It was our first visit to Chichester and first meal. We enjoy eating Thai food so visiting the Lemongrass was a must. From the moment we walked in to the time we left, we were not disappointed. Service: 10/10 Fast and efficient Food: 10/10 Starters: I ate Chicken Satay, my wife Tempura Prawns Mains: I ate Phad Prik: Ribeye Steak with chilli and sticky rice while my wife ate Seabass deep fryed with lychee and noodles. Both my wife and enjoyed the meal immensley. The flavours danced on your senses and the meal cooked to perfection. It is such a shame that we live in London! Dessert: Vanilla ice-cream while my wife ate Lemongrass and lime sorbet. Mine was most welcome because my lips were still tingling from the heat of the chilli while my wife enjoyed her refreshing palate cleanser. Drinks: Non alcoholic orange and lemonade, my wife drank Lychee juice. After dinner she drank coffee while I had a double Baileys. Cost: £81.20: This included Service Charge at 15% and to be honest, worth every penny. Ambiance: The restaurant is modern in look - one wall is covered in pieces of wood with wood panelling underneath while the opposite wall had three wooden pieces if art. The tables are beautufully prepared with cotton napkins moulded into a flower. A cotton table runner is definitely not just for show! A must for collecting the odd drip! Toilets: If you are disabled you can park at the rear of the restaurant. However..to get to the toilet you have to negotiate three steps. Overall: The staff were attentive and extremely helpful but not OTT while the food blows you away. Would we come back? ABSOLUTELY!

The Lemon Grass Thai Restaurant is always a treat to visit, and we do so whenever we have a hankering for this cuisine. It has everything you want in a restaurant experience. The place itself is bright, clean and nicely decorated, the service is superb and traditional; you always get a respectful Thai greeting and most importantly the food is incredible. Having travelled extensively with my family throughout the Far East this food is up to the standard you would expect. Can't wait for our next visit.

Food at Lemongrass is absolutely excellent. Cannot fault it. Staff very polite (all Asian, to be expected). We've been to other Lemongrass restaurants, and the one at Chichester was nice, the location generally good as it was within the old part of town. We had a window seat but the entire view outside was just of a large Kwik fit. So we sat and watched cars up on ramps being repaired as we ate. Would still eat there again as love the food.

We really enjoyed our food. It was an interesting menu, delightfully presented and tasty. The only drawback to the experience was the noise. We were in the back section of the restaurant and our party of six had difficulty hearing anyone not sitting next to them because the acoustics were poor. However, the staff were all very polite, patient and unobtrusive. I would recommend to others.

Fabulous staff, coupled with fabulous food! At the end of our meal, my wife announced that my birthday was imminent. They asked us to wait a moment and returned with a lovely desert, with a lit candle in it and sang Happy Birthday to me. Very touching in its spontaneity and of course, massively appreciated.

We had a great meal at lemongrass, the food, staff, service and surroundings were all super. There was a good variety of food ordered between six of us and everything was very tasty and beautifully prepared and served. We would thoroughly recommend Lemongrass and will be returning there in the future.

We arrived at 9.20 pm on a Sat eve orders were taken at 9.40 and our main course arrived minutes after our starters were finished. It felt rushed and we weren't wrong come 10.20 we are being told if we want a desert or another drink we have to order by 10.30 as bar & kitchen closed! It's possibly the fastest meal bar Macdonalds and certainly the Fastest spent £200. This was to be a social occasion not fast food very disappointing. And there are other more relaxed places to eat Thai food in the area I live so won't be back.

Absolutely beautiful tasty food, plenty of it, wonderful helpful staff. Just a bit noisy (we went on a Monday evening too) and echoes so not good with a hearing deficit. Definitely recommend this as long as you can cope with noise. I think there is a quieter corner at the front

Service was wonderful. Food was incredible. As a vegetarian, always worry there won't be many options or choices. My partner and I went for the Set veggie menu and it was amazing. Some of the best food I have ever had. Amazing Thai food with plenty of variety and flavour.

We went for lunch this time, as opposed to our normal dinner visits... the lunch menu is even better ! (cheaper anyway) huge portions for half the price, they're very generous with the food amounts and the service and atmosphere was great as always. Will be back soon :)

We have visited this restaurant several times and we have always had wonderful food and great service from the staff. We would highly recommend it to anyone, however we would prefer to leave a tip at our discretion and not have a service charge automatically added to the bill.

Lovely restaurants, great décor, the waiting staff were very nice and well dressed. Food was very tasty and hot temperature wise. The only problem we found was being a Saturday night it was a bit noisier than we like and we were sat next to a large table celebrating a birthday. That said I would recommend it.

The food is delicious and is served very quickly by the most lovely, helpful staff. The price is very reasonable and they add only 10% service charge to the bill. We were very full as couldn't stop eating it even after we'd had enough!

What a fantastic restaurant, the staff are so friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble, the food is out of this world with generous portions which are easy to share. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Definitely 10 out of 10.

Excellent. Great food and lovely people. Very welcoming. Birthday meal with mother, daughter and granddaughter. Accommodating with baby. Provided boiled water to warm bottle. Just excellent. Tapas menu idea great for lunch. A number of great options for combinations of mains and starters.
