    We had the Sunrise special, which basically adds a small appetizer and a non-alcoholic drink to your entree price for $2.00. The bite size dumplings were hot and looked handmade, not previously frozen. The sauce they were in was very sweet, a hint of spicy and I would guess molasses was the unique ingredient. The wait staff was attentive without being interruptive. We had the Pad Thai and Massaman Curry. Both were flavorful, served hot, and had ample portions. I appreciated the uniqueness of avocado and sweet potato in the Massaman. My constructive critique would be that the beef in the dish was tough and there was an overabundance of onion. I would go again and recommend to friends.

    Overall good food and taste, except the wonton soup which had mainly broth and 3 wontons. Our party of 4 had various dishes that all were good and had good flavor. The only exception we had, was that the tables were so close together that everyone was trying to have private conversations.. but could not. My wife was no less than about a foot away from a "large" man which was very uncomfortable for her.

    Met some friends and their daughters for dinner. It was a great choice - well priced, lots of menu options, can share big and small plates. Reasonably creative dishes, best was the tuna "dip" - more like a tartare and both looked and tasted delicious. Adequate wine list. Perfect for a fun, casual, group dinner.

    The Lemongrass chain has fantastically good food. This particular restaurant is narrow and very noisy. It's in a very busy, touristy part of Delray Beach- in a good way. Lots of fun local shops. Park to the south in a free public parking lot- about a block away.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/6/2013
    My wife and I are visitors to Delray Beach and went to Lemongrass Bistro since it was an ethic place and sounded "hip". First impressions once I stepped inside....good long bar, bistro type seating, and helpful hostess staff. Brought to our table on what I call the kitchen side was different. Visible view of the kitchen, a long set of bistro type seating again, and a small sushi bar. It was loud and enertergetic! The menu is very extensive varying from Chinese stir-frys, Japanese sushi, Thai inspired dishes, and curries. It was good!!! We started out with their lemongrass spring rolls and chicken satay. Dare I say it was a lot of food and we then changed our minds and got the 16 piece sashimi plate for $26. Good deal in my opinion.

    Looking for a nice Saturday evening with my son (12)... Sat down before the couple next to us. Waiter was talking to us and was told we wanted some water came back saw the couple next to us, gave them our water and then took their order! I felt like the waiter saw more of a tip with them than us! Loved the food we ordered and the mojhito was refreshing with great taste! The tables were too close together lined up against the wall. We could have been part of conversations on either side of us! Good night because of the food...

    Lemongrass is a great choice for Asian on Atlantic Avenue - if weather permits, you can sit outside and people watch while you have a great meal. We started with dumplings, edamame and the sea bass appetizers all of which were cooked perfectly and delicious. For dinner we had the the Lobster bomb and traditional Pad Thai. You will not be disappointed with this local gem in Delray or their other local locations.

    We tried this restaurants with friends who just moved to West Palm and the food was great. I have several alergies, but I explained this to the server and he was very accomodating. In fact the menu asks for customers to explain their food restrictions so the chef can make substitutions. We'll be back.

    This was my first dining experience at Lemongrass and I must say that it was certainly more than I expected. The menu selections were so variable it made it a challange for my dining partner and I to select from the variety of menu options..... cudos. Portions were very ample and the dishes were outstanding for taste and presentation. Do I recommend this place....I most certainly do. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

    We have been regular diners at Lemongrass for years, and have always enjoyed the reliably good food, pleasant service and lively atmosphere. However, this time we had to send back both our appetizers and our main courses were mediocre. We are vegetarians, and we were first told they could not make the pad thai without fish sauce, which we have had many times. Then, as always, we substituted fried tofu for the shrimp in the spring rolls, but instead of the usual nice crunchy tofu, we received bits of what looked like white mush. The papaya salad also went back, as they didn't make the substitution at all and we received a pile of shrimp on top. The main courses were okay, but not great. We hope this isn't the end of great food at Lemongrass.

    Lemongrass has been our "go to" restaurant for several years. Food is constantly very good. Went with friends for their first visit. They loved this restaurant!! at the friends' request, we dined outside. Even though we're residents, I cannot get used to the outside dining with the Atlantic Ave. traffic going back and forth about ten feet from your table. Lots of fun when a non-muffled motorcycle roars by. (not!!) But we keep going back (dining indoors!).

    Lemongrass is always my go-to for lunches and dinners with work colleagues or friends & family in from out-of-town. Great variety on the menu to accommodate all sorts of tastes. My favorites are the Pan Fried Dumplings, Spicy Conch Salad, Seafood Ceviche, house salad with that yummy Ginger Dressing and their Lemongrass Fried Rice (a meal by itself). When I can, I also LOVE to have one of their Japanese White Peach Martinis... tastes heavenly - just like biting into a fresh peach!
