Lemongrass offer an all-in-one Thai experience. What does that mean? Well, it means tastes from all corners of Thailand, all fundamental taste elements of Thai cuisine (sour, spicy, salty and sweet), hearty curry dishes, Thai-style tapas, Thai beers, traditional decor and – to top it all off – famously friendly Thai service. In short, this is a sure-fire bet for satisfying any Thai cravings that come on in Crawley. Found right in the town centre on High Street, Lemongrass are often full and you may have to book a table in advance, but it’s well worth it for the spread of Thai delicacies you’ll be treated to, including ped ron (aromatic duck), crispy sea bass infused with galangal, deep-fried jumbo prawns in choo-chee curry sauce, an authentic massaman curry, and the signature pu nim (crispy soft-shell crab) or hoy ob (New Zealand Grade A mussels steamed with lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf and galangal).
Amazing all round! The food was beautiful and the staff couldn't do enough. It was one if our party's birthday and the staff put a birthday banner up, sang happy birthday with a guitar and have her a complimentary dessert with her name written in chocolate!! So thoughtful!
This restaurant never lets you down. Great food and excellent service. We went for my sons birthday. He received a free pudding and card with a personal message from all of the staff. Sam the manager was really helpful and took his time explaining certain dishes. Will definitely be returning.
As always the food was excellent. This time took my sister and neice from Devin, who agreed the brst Thai food they had eaten outside of Thailand. Food is alway freshly prepared, hot and gorgeous.
As always in this restaurant : great food, great service, & great atmosphere. Once again thank you to everyone for a great evening, we will be back !
I visited Lemongrass this weekend with friends. We chose it as we all love Thai and one of my friends recommended this restaurant as I hadn't tried any in the area. Let me tell you we were not disappointed! We ordered a range of things, tempura prawns, pad Thai and the Set Menu A. All was superb! Between four of us we ordered 2 starters, 2 pad Thai and the Set Menu A for two. The amount of food was incredible! There was so much left that we took most of it home! An issue we did have was that we ordered two prawn tempura and we received one tempura and one prawn toast. I said we should ask them but the other members of our party didn't want to cause a fuss. Although I am sure the staff would have obliged if they'd have know. The staff were all more than lovely and attentive, although I do have one negative comment - when we had finished eating the waitresses were floating around our table as if they wanted us to leave. We still had half a bottle of wine that we wanted to finish whilst chating and letting our meal go down. Our glasses were topped up as soon as we took a sip leaving us feeling slightly uncomfortable. I understand that they may have wanted the table as it was a Friday night but there were other free tables in the restaurant and we had not overstayed our welcome. Overall a great meal and I will be returning with my partner in the future!
The Lemongrass in Crawley is simply the best Thai restaurant for miles! We took mum for Mother's Day as it's both her favourite and ours, my brother and sister-in-law are regulars. The staff are always friendly and attentive with excellent service and the food is just incredible! The sight, smell and taste of the food is just awesome, beautifully presented, very generous quantities and all of a very high quality. We all had the Tempura Prawns for starters, the Massaman Lamb Shanks and Phad Thai noodles and even with three healthy appetites, we still took some home! None of us could manage a dessert! If you like Thai food and plenty of it, you'll love the Lemongrass!
Fantastic Food and Staff. Everything we were served was fresh and very tasty! I ordered a side of the seasonal veg with oyster sauce - the veg was crispy and wonderful just the way I like it. Excellent choice of food for my husband who is a vegetarian too. Kra Chai is an amazing dish and I would highly recommend if you like steak. Thanks for a lovely and very tasty evening Lemongrass - we will be back !
Ordered two mixed plates, the food on both could not be faulted. Every dish was full of flavour and so delicious- the portion was very generous and we could not finish it. The service was efficient and the restaurant decor was very nice. My only criticism was that the restaurant smelt strongly of cleaning products - I assume that this was because it was close to it opening. It was a bit off putting (the restaurant was also extremely hot). Perhaps some some traditional incense sticks would have hidden this!
Fantastic restaurant, food was delicious, staff very helpful and attentive. It was my birthday and they put up a banner, serenaded me and sang happy birthday. They even got the staff to all sign a birthday card. A very personal touch was also to call all 7 of us by our names all evening. Would highly recommend Lemongrass to anyone looking for that personal touch that you don't always get on an evening out.
Food excellent, service very good although some small things missed due to how busy the restaurant was. Only real quibble was our group of 6 being put on a table for four with a couple of extra chairs hastily added on, despite having booked ahead of time. This meant our table was too small for all the dishes and one of us was sat in the way of other people in the restaurant but the food was so good they’re forgiven and we will be back!
