Sa-Wat-Dee! This is a Thai greeting meaning “Hello!” that will welcome you by their Thai-speaking staff as soon as you enter the doors of Lemongrass. The smell of lemongrass and other essences popular in Thailand will wake up your senses. The restaurant serves authentic Thai cuisine prepared by a passionate group of Thai chefs.
Their tom yum soup is a top pick among their avid diners. You can choose the level of spiciness of your soup so it is best that you start with mild first then just step it up a notch once you think you can take more “hotness.”
Garnering so much praises, it is unforgivable to miss their distinctive Pad Thai as well. The dish has bean sprouts, tofu and chives perfectly wrapped in fried egg and gaeng kiew wan, a green curry with eggplant, sweet basil and chili. One will keep coming back to Lemongrass even just for this dish alone.
And for sweet bites, try their fried banana and Thai sweet rice crackers.
