Set in a slightly obscure pocket of Oud Metha, overlooking a car park and the surrounding neighbourhood, Lemongrass is an affordable option for good quality Thai fare. Grab a seat on the outdoor picnic-style benches, which are lit up by candlelight in the evening. Bite into the crispy deep-fried spring rolls with minced chicken and glass noodles dipped in plum sauce, or sample the fragrant tom yum goong soup with lemongrass, prawns, mushrooms and coriander. There are plenty of seafood options on offer, including a healthy steamed snapper with ginger and a light soy sauce. If the weather’s warm, you might like to try the lab, a refreshing minced beef salad marinated in Thai spices and lime juice. For dessert, there are plenty of options including sweet sticky rice with coconut milk, fried banana with ice cream and water chestnuts in crushed ice.
Open daily 12pm-11.30pm. Next to Lamcy Plaza, Oud Metha (04 334 2325).
