Time Out Says

A cute, quaint Thai restaurant in Oud Metha, Lemongrass has a lovely vibe and nice, down-to-earth décor. Staff are pleasant but don’t try too hard to make sure you’re having a good time.

The menu is filled with dishes you’d find across Thailand, with spicy soups, vibrant salads, rice and noodle dishes and curries providing the big hitters. Seafood and wok dishes are less successful, however.

Satay-style chicken is a good option to start, along with fried fish balls. The minced chicken salad is one of our favourites, the sweet, sour, salty and spicy all working in harmony. We find the duck Penang curry a little salty, and the duck is tough, while the crispy red snapper really needs the tangy tamarind sauce with it, as the fish itself lacks some flavour. More successful is the guay tiew tom yum – a spicy noodle soup with minced chicken, prawn and squid.

If you’re in the older part of town and fancy something other than the Indian food that’s more readily available, Lemongrass is as good as anything you’ll find there and it’s pretty decent value, too.
