    We ate outside on their patio and had a delicious meal. Our friends were exceptionally pleased with the taste and quality of the food. Their ginger salad dressing is one of the best I've tasted. The seafood in my soup was tender and cooked to perfection. The quality here is consistent and the prices are moderate. We often return when we are in the mood for Thai food.

  • Birthday celebration
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/1/2012
    This is my 2nd time there and both times the food has been excellent. However, last time we had a waiter that was very engaging and brought life to the service. This time I think our waiter, although very nice and respectful, had a language barrier. He brought a drink in a martini glass with no cocktail napkin and some it spilled when he placed it on the table. We asked for a napkin and if he could clean up the area that spilled. He brought back a cocktail napkin but then left without wiping up the wet area. It was a birthday celebration and we were catching up and took awhile to place an oder. When we ordered the appetizer, we asked for 2 selections. They brought 3. Asked us if we wanted desert but never brought the menu, just the check.

    Excellent sauces in several dishes and gracious help from the staff on ordering made this a very nice dining experience. Everything was very well done and exceeded our expectations when compared to the same items at some very highly rated competitors. The Sea Bass was outstanding and the Super Spider Roll was! Portions were good and prices fair for this kind of fare. We will be dining there on a regular basis.

    After eating at Lemongrass many times, it seems it has consistenly gone downhill. Service this round was awful. Food is usually okay, but wasn't the best this time. Over the past year or so, I've gone there less and less. Too bad ... the downward spiral seems to be the pattern for what used to be good eateries in the Ft. Lauderdale area.

    New to the area we needed to find a place to go when we are not sure what we want to eat. Sushi, noodles, curry, Lemongrass does them all and does them well. we sat outside on a beautiful night, a little too much traffic going by but once the food came, who noticed. Fresh Sushi, Pad-Thai noodles and chicken and Panang Curry were all served in generous portions at a comfortable pace. We will go back again and again.

    We enjoyed our first time at lemongrass. The food was fantastic. Our server was very professional and attentive to our needs. He made sure that we had a great dining experience. The place is cozy, clean and the ambiance is relaxing. We can't wait to try other entrees on our next visit. I've been complimenting my husband for choosing lemongrass. Since we are not from ft Lauderdale we were not familiar with the dining options but with lemongrass we surely picked a winner.

Everyone enjoyed their selections which ranged from veggie sushi rolls wrapped in cucumber to pad Thai and curry dishes. The salad was generous with a delicious peanut dressing. There is a large vegetarian selection which appealed to two members of our party.

    Thai Sushi Thai Sushi Thai Sushi!! Same same, but different ::: Another combo restaurant - guess - which seems to be a popular concept here in So Florida ::: The sushi was just average, our dinners were slightly better - the Chilean Sea Bass with Tamarind sauce was well cooked and presented with Bok Choy, we found the sauce too sweet and not much of a Tamarind flavor ::: The Chicken soup with noodles was rather bland, done in a Pho style but without the typical lime, herbs, bean sprouts, etc. to elevate it beyond chicken soup with some rice noodles...

    I had high hopes for this place on our visit to Fort Lauderdale, but it fell short in all aspects. The food was unremarkable at best. Lemongrass rolls were deep fried but burnt on the edges. Sushi was marginal. Had a bland noodle and shrimp dish. Waiter was non existent once the order was taken. We actually stopped for dinner on the way home from dinner.

    Good Japanese/Thai with an upper scale vibe than your typical sushi joint and prices to match (not cheap sushi joint either). Nice Menu, lots of choices- husband loved the red curry. Our Mother loves Monster Lobster roll. Family loves Lemongrass in Delray too. Good all around place to satisfy the family or a date. Odd location though.... if you did not know it, you may not stop or even see it.

    Both of our appetizers were overdone to the point that one of the orders was burnt on the sides. My panang curry did not taste like any I had eaten before. I ordered a three and there was no heat whatsoever. I had to have the wait staff bring spice. Another common thai dish was just fair. The other two diners enjoyed their orders. The wait stuff was knowledgeable and attentive. This was a celebratory dinner and I chose not to complain to the wait staff.
