Lemongrass Delray Beach has been the place to go for Thai, Japanese sushi, and Vietnamese since opening. The eclectic expansive menu will have you coming back multiple times to see how one little kitchen can put out so much. With all rolls and dishes made to order, the chefs can create just about anything to your liking. The notable wine and sake list provides the perfect paring to any entrée. Reasonable prices, excellent service and award-winning cuisine, are just a few reasons why people keep coming back time and time again.

We frequent Lemongrass regularly and live closeby. The food is usually good, but the service tends to be a little snippy.

Sunday night & Busy! Three of us shared Age Tofu-only one dipping sauce—what happened to the peanut sauce? Seaweed salad now has cucumber slices underneath & the dressing doesn’t have the citrusy tang I remember. Tempura appetizer was crisp & light. The Lobster pad thai—the lobster was tough & lacked flavor but the noodles were excellent although the sauce could stand a touch of heat to balance the sweetness. They were out of Singha beer so we substituted Sapporo. All in all, a good meal & an interesting clientele that makes for great people watching.

Lemongrass was good, but nothing outstanding in a town full of good restaurants. The Happy Hour drinks were mediocre, the Margarita bland and the Pomegranate Ginger too sweet. The sushi and the dumplings were very good, the Miso sea bass flavorless and the Crispy Duck Salad limp.
The server was very pleasant, but I wish she had explained how large the portions would be when I ordered two appetizers and a salad instead of an entre.
Overall, it was ok. But, I will try others before going back again.

First we sat outside, unfortunately the table was close to an area that has a foul odor...

Service was great but food was not good at all, we order fried rice no taste and the color was gray very rare color, pad Thai no flavor, food and appetizers in general not the best quality, this was our first time and is a big No for us, prices are too high compared to food quality
Drinks were great,

Mediocre food. Pad thai sauce was good but my scallops were over cooked. We waited for about an hour for the food. I think the waitress forgot to submit it. The best dish was the salad which was fresh and cold. We got it as compensation for not getting our meal. Nothing else was really worth mentioning. I guess that was my last visit there.

Our waitress was accommodating — taking the soup back since it was cold. The dumpling were excellent. The main dish — chicken and vegetable in garlic sauce was ordinary.

Definitely will order just sushi rolls next time.

Entire staff was welcoming and attentive.

Menu was way to overwhelming. Needs to be 1/4 the size. Seemed to be the best place for food delivery in Delray Beach. Wine menu was poor but the sushi was good. Just need to really decide what they are going for Thai or Japanese.

We have always enjoyed Lemongrass. A bit far away from palm beach island however the monster lobster was always outstanding. The Mongolian beef was lacking flavor.
This time we had four at the table. We order two monster lobsters and four dinners
Sorry to say, the taste was not as it was previously

Great restaurant! Had Thai as I am not a sushi fan. Ginger beef was outstanding! Good quality and outstanding flavor! Pad Thai was also good with chicken. Plenty of meat in both dishes. We had enough leftover for lunch the next day! Reasonably priced, (less than $50 with tip) for 2. Waitress Pam was very attentive making sure water glasses filled, and talked with us about her recent trip to Thailand as we had mentioned that we were there last year. Definitely a return is in the future!

It was our first time to the restaurant. We thought the food was delicious and the menu was wonderful. There were long periods of time when we were left alone and in need of a drink or something else so were very dissapoinnted with the service. It may have been a communication situation because we had better luck when we asked another server how to use the DIY wagyu beef stone cooker and when it was time for our check.
