There’s a reason why Lemongrass is so famous around Surrey and West Sussex, and it’s not just thanks to the plant where it takes its name. Found in several locations including in Lewes, Chichester, Rustington, Horsham, Crawley and Petersfield, Lemongrass is something of a legend in Southeast England. The Compton – just near Guildford – branch of the restaurant is massively popular, drawing in diners from far and wide just to sample their range of Thai tapas, hearty curries, satisfying soups and mains. Found at The Harrow on The St. in Compton close to Compton Village Hall, Lemongrass is perfect for your next big outing, and even features a range of fine wines, beer and cocktails to complement your dishes.

Excellent food. The service could be improved but overall I was very impressed. We had 2 starters and 2 mains and it came to £35. Cheap and cheerful.
Authentic Thai food in a lovely setting and charming staff. Lovely food as always, thank you.
The food was delicious, the service was friendly and very helpful, they were able to recater the menu for taste preferences and everyone was very happy. overall an excellent experience and we will be returning in the future.
Very friendly, very prompt, very tasty. We'd been there before and will definitely go again. Added to that, it is just around the corner (more or less).
We enjoyed our meals at Lemongrass Guildford, in the Harrow Inn, Compton. Parking was easy on Saturday lunchtime. The staff were welcoming and attentive without being obtrusive. There is a good selection of starters and mains and the portions were generous. My starter of veggie rolls with a dipping sauce was tasty but my main of tofu and veggies needed a sauce to give it more taste, so I would choose a different dish next time. My wife’s red Thai curry was excellent, full of flavour. Others in the party were also very satisfied. There’s a selection of desserts and I enjoyed the pistachio ice cream this time and my wife could manage a coffee. Unfortunately no soya milk which could easily be rectified. For 6 of us for mains, 2 starters, various glasses of wine, and desserts the overall cost was about £115, including 10% service charge. We’ll go again.
Fantastic food wonderful service and at prices that are quite reasonable. Very welcoming staff well presented food and a huge menu choice. I can highly recommend this as a place to really enjoy a meal. The only negative is that the entrance and wash rooms have a number of uneven and oddly placed steps that need careful negotiation to avoid tripping - this does need fixing.. The area is located close to Watts gallery which is well worth a visit and there are a few very lovely country walks that raise the spirit and could be a great starter for lunch.....
We arrived early for a pre theatre meal and were very kindly allowed to go into the “closed” restaurant and peruse the menu over drinks. Charming service with waitresses who were prepared to give you time and conversation. Of course, we were the only customers present, so there was no sense of anyone being too busy for you. Food excellent. Lovely atmosphere. The only reason a 5 was given for rating and not the 6 is that we felt the toilet set up needed looking at again....very small, shared washbasins with the gents, and considering the size of the restaurant, may need looking at. Many thanks for an extremely pleasant experience, nonetheless.
Online booking was easy and seemless. We did not have to wait for our table but the restaurant was otherwise quite full and this was on a Saturday night. The food was excellent and varied. They were accommodating in changing some items for us. The wine is also a reasonable price for a restaurant.
We received a warm welcome on arrival and were seated quickly. The food was fabulous and the service was very good. We were taking friends to the restaurant for the first time and we will all certainly be going back - thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Food was amazing! It was all so fresh, even the garnishes were beautifully crisp. Service was very good too and value for money excellent! They all obviously love what they do and put their heart and soul into it. I will definitely be going back.
