Excellent service - the waiters were impeccable and very accommodating - and the food was absolutely beautiful. My husband and I had Set Menu A, which was quite a traditional selection of starters and mains to share. Every item, from the prawn toasts and dips to the Thai green chicken curry and egg noodles, was cooked to perfection and so full of flavour. We will definitely be returning to Lemongrass! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

The food was as expected having had takeaway from here before that was very good with a lot of options. The restaurant is spacious, the staff were attentive.

Having read a couple of mixed reviews we weren't sure about booking here, but decided it best to make up our own minds and give this new restaurant a go. So glad we did. The service was prompt, attentive but not intrusive, and with good humour (essential with our table!). The menu offered an excellent range of items to choice from, and we decided to go off piste rather than pick the set menus. With starters and mains selected we settled in, and it didn't take long before the first courses came. The tastes equaled the smells we had been already sampled, and made for happy diners. The mains also came out to the same high standards, and the four of us spent a very pleasurable couple of hours in this fine Thai restaurant. Why 5 rather than 6? Simply because the cost was a little over the average, but not by much, and we all felt that it was well worth it. Highly recommended.

A group of 11 of us visited, most of us not really having much experience of Thai food. As it was a lunchtime, most of us ordered from the Tapas menu. I was a bit concerned that there wouldn't be enough food, but I shouldn't have worried, because there was plenty and it was all delicious! We've already decided that we're going to have our works Christmas lunch there, it was SO good!

The food was excellent and so were the staff at the beginning, but once the restaurant began to get busy you could clearly see there was a lack of staff. I really felt for the waiters as they had about 10 tables to cover each and service was slow because of that. Once our table was cleared after our main meals we were left waiting asking if we wanted another drink or the desert menu for around 20 minutes. Overall a really nice restaurant but could seriously do with some more staff.

We'd heard about the Lemongrass from friends ,so thought we would try it for ourselves, The surroundings and decor were lovely and the food first class. Don't go unless your really hungry because the portions are large, Will be going again very soon

First and foremost the food was delicious, brilliantly presented and served in a very friendly plus attentive manner. We experienced a most enjoyable evening and certainly recommend the restaurant as we all thought that it was good value for the money paid.
