I have eaten good food in a great many places. I have been fortunate enough to travel and experience authentic food in quite a few different countries. I have eaten Thai at most, if not all of the popular twin cities restaurants. While

Their service does stink but the food is too yummy to keep me away from this place. I suggest getting take out and enjoy ANYTHING on the menu. This is by far our favorite Thai place in the twincities!

I love this place!! It's a wonderful thing to enjoy the flavors of Thailand without the price of airfare! They have a fantastic selection of dishes that boast robust flavors that will keep you coming back for more...and let me tell you that there aren't many restaurants out there that I'd drive 60 miles round trip to dine at. The owner is very attentive and gracious. I can't say enough good things about Lemon Grass Thai Cuisine. Try it, you'll love it!!

Lemon Grass is a must do! Best Thai food in the Twin Cities for sure! Prices are fair, food is tasty and plentiful, and it has a great atmosphere. If you are looking for something different definitely check this place out
I like some of the other reviewers have tried other places in the area but I keep coming back to Lemon Grass. I love this place! The service has always been top notch and extremely friendly.
I have been coming to Lemon Grass ever since I saw their review in our local City Pages back in May of 2007. I took the authors advice and tried the house-made lemongrass sausages, Sai Oua E-sane. I told Ann, my waitress and now the owner, I had seen the review and I was looking forward to trying the dish. She recommended that I also try it with an order of sticky rice. It was delicious!!! The sausages were slightly spicy and had great flavor thanks to the Kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass, they also had a pleasant texture and a nice snap when you bite into them which is a must for any sausage if you ask me. I HIGHLY recommend you trying these sausages with the sticky rice I order them every time I go.
There are so many good things on the menu, and you should try them all. Here are some of my all-time favorite dishes besides the Sai Oue E-sane sausages: Spring rolls, Tom Yum Soup (with or without the coconut milk, both are delicious), Beef salad, and the Kao Poon Sweet salad.
I really hope you try dining at Lemon Grass; it??s definitely worth seeking out!

I don't usually give 5 star ratings, but gees, this is just the best Thai I have EVER had. It's almost too bad because I have become completely addicted to several dishes- the Ginger Delight and the Black Out are stellar. Don't even get me started on the Golden Triangles. A bit out of the Cities, but well worth the drive. It's causal dining at its best- price is right, snappy decor, clean,... but like I said, you won't find better Thai dishes anywhere in the Twin Cities. Original recipes, nice quick service, great lunch specials! With newly added wine list (including some tasty Alsatians) this place just gets better and better.

It's located in a little strip mall in Brooklyn Park, not much competition since the food is actually better than Sawatdee, a lot more authentic.

It has one of the best tom yum soup around -- that's the one thing we order from there consistently and nothing else.

Pros: best Thai restaurant nearby

Cons: somewhat pricy

Love the thai food at this restaurant. They have a variety of items to choose from. They also feature some lao foods which I thought was pretty good as well. If you love thai food I would say definitely check this place out.

Wonderful Thai restaurant. The service was great and the food was even better. It is a nice little restaurant and I would recommend it to others. We tried it because of other positive reviews we read in other local articles.

You know, I was a fan of this place because the food there is actually decent. Its the only decent thai food in brooklyn park. But after my experience today, I will no longer be going there.

I simply called in an order for pad thai and duck curry to be picked up. I got there, checked my ordered, and it was wrong. So I kindly said, "this order doesnt have the pad thai." The owner proceeded to the kitchen to get his wife who had taken the order. She came out and said in the rudest tone, "YOU SAID CHICKEN SATAY!" I was shocked at her reaction since I wasn't complaining. I kept my composure and said, "Im pretty sure I ordered the pad thai". She left quite angry at me and yelling to someone in the back. Once she had made the pad thai, she came back and put it with the SATAY that I did not ordered. So I again, I kindly said, I ordered the duck and pad thai. Thats the chicken satay." Mad at me as if I had not made myself clear enough, she walked to the back yelling about me again. By this time, I was frustrated because if anyone had the right to be mad, it was ME. Yet I was the one being yelled at because SHE took the wrong order down and couldnt get my order straight? What has good customer service come to when the customer is more apologetic for something the owner did wrong?!? You couldn't take down a simple order and took your anger out on me, made me felt ridiculously stupid for even ORDERING anything.

I will never EVER go back to this ridiculous restaurant who knows NOTHING bout customer service. Trust me, ITS NOT WORTH IT. Sawatdee's food may not measure up to this, but at lest you'll be treated like a human person there!

By the way, the $11 curry duck had 2 drumsticks and 4 thinly slices of breast. It filled less than half of a quart. Get your moneys worth elsewhere. I should've just got a whole roasted duck next door for $15! Wht waste of time, money, and PATIENCE!

Pros: only thai food in brooklyn park

Cons: customer service, owners, management

My fiancee Dianne read good reviews about Lemon Grass on a couple of food blogs. Since it is only a few miles from us we went with her cousin Peg for supper this evening. The decor is about what you would expect for a strip-mall Thai restaurant, it looks a bit like they decorated by hitting the close-out section of International Brass (although they did have a nice little shrine to the Buddha on one wall), and Thai music videos were playing on a flatscreen on another wall (but the music was not overly loud). There were only a couple of tables occupied when we arrived (about 5PM on a Saturday night), but the aromas wafting through the air were tantalizing.

We were greeted immediately, and seated promptly. The waitress came back to take our order very quickly. We started with the Golden Triangles (deep-fried crab and cream-cheese stuffed wontons) and lettuce wraps (diced chicken with rice and spring onion that you put on a lettuce leaf, drizzle sauce over and roll up to eat), for our entrees I had the Southern Curried Noodles with chicken and green curry paste(substituting rice noodles for the egg noodles), Di had a duck curry, Peg ordered the Buddha's Belly and we got a plate of curried rice for the table. Everything arrived very quickly. The Triangles were wonderful, with a slightly sweet dipping sauce that nicely complemented the savory filling. The lettuce wraps were perfectly okay, but a little on the dry side for my taste. The entrees were uniformly delicious. I asked for spicy and it was, but the heat did not overpower the flavor. The duck was a little less spicy so the delicate flavor of the bird came through, and while the Buddha's Belly was a little on the mild side, it too had a nice complex of flavors which were not overpowered by the heat. And there was no skimping on the servings, all of the portions were very generous.

We finished off with the sweet rice with mango and sweet black rice with ice cream. Both were superb. Out of space.

I have been to Lemongrass twice now. The first time i had chicken satay and tom ka gai and it was fantastic. The second time I got the red curry and it was okay. I ordered it spicy, which it was, but it didn't have much flavor. It had little to no coconut milk and was kind of oily. It may have been an off night, so i will go back.
