I went here once when I first moved to the 'hood. I ordered the pad thai, which I had previously thought to be safe choice and pretty hard to mess up. I was wrong -- it was terrible. Just terrible. My GF got another noodle dish, which was also really gross. I really am baffled that this place has stayed in business. It's pretty cheap, service is pleasant, and the portions are huge... but it is also yucky, inedible food. I'd rather not eat.

This review is for their 2nd location (156 Court Street) Prior to my last visit, I recommended this restaurant to many However, my last visit was BAD. It started off with 4 different people serving me. Afterwards, when I needed a drink refill I not only had to call across the room to the group of servers chit chatting but I also waited 10 minutes for a Thai Iced Tea that was served by the kitchen staff. During the meal my boyfriend expressed his discomfort because the servers were paying very close attention to his every move. To top things off when we requested the bill/check, it was practically thrown on the table. Because of the experience we opted to leave a small tip. The grand finale...as we were leaving one of the servers ran behind us (we were already out of the door) to announce to us that the tip we left was not sufficient and that she has a minimum amount she accepts (have you ever heard of such S@*&T). Seeing the anger in my boyfriend I decided to deal with the situation. I told her we were not going to tip her more because we weren't satisfied with the service we received. She maintained that the tip was too small. So I told her, I'm sorry she felt that way but we have no more to tip her. Her reaction and I quote " Well other people think before they order, you should do that next time so you can leave a good tip"
I will NEVER visit there again, she should thank God I controlled myself and didn't leave my palm print on her face for such rudeness.

Pros: Good Food

Cons: Bad Service

Its pretty average. They served tiny dim sum under the name dumplings. Everything seems to be made with the same spices. The food is pretty good, and the prices are decent, but I've been to better thai places. They have a desert of some little sweet rice cakes or something that is delicious. Stop by if you are a fan of thai food and in the area, they have several locations.

User cindybd04 is obviously a born out-of-towner Manhattan snot. The food at Lemongrass is just fine, as is the service. Admittedly, the ambiance isn't ideal for romantic dates, but that's not what this restaurant is all about.

I'm guessing that cindybd04 copped an attitude the moment she walked in the door, and the (always friendly and fast moving) staff responded to her in kind.

String Beans with beef and the wings stand out among many fine dishes.

If the food was any good, I could forgive the incompetence. We ordered for delivery, but the woman got the order wrong (didn't speak english well). When we called to tell them, they said "oh we'll figure out and call you back." they never did. so five mins later, i called them back and the MANAGER said no i'm sorry we can not bring you back your correct order, since you paid for this order. SERIOUSLY? This is why you don't order delivery in Brooklyn!
And to top it off, the pad thai was seriously mushy and quite nauseating. The tom yum soup (ordered with shrimp, came with tofu - ugh) was not hot, nor spicy, nor any good. I will NEVER go back.
the chicken wings were alright

Pros: chicken wings

Cons: service, no english speaking on phone, just about everything else

I?ve eaten there numerous times and ordered out even more. It?s an okay Thai restaurant that is worth going to if you?re in the area and want to have a reasonably priced, ok Thai dinner, or you?re in the mood for a decent takeout. Nothing more. The food is not fabulous but not bad (you'll need to find the dishes you like, some are really good, some just ok I love their pork chops and chicken wings, yumm!), the atmosphere is usually busy, not romantic (in the summer, the garden is lovely), the portions are pretty generous, and the selection is good. Overall, you get your moneys worth. It won?t knock your socks off, and if you don't have very high expectations, you'll enjoy it.

There are so many thai places in the neighborhood, but Lemongrass is one of the best. Prompt service, delicious, fresh food, very reasonably priced.

I was really excited to have some pad thai, but was not that impressed. The chicken just had a weird taste to it. I actually picked all of it out and just at the noodles. I thought it was somewhat bland as well and had to add lots of sauce. After all the I enjoyed it. it was a large portion which was great because I had leftovers for dinner and lunch the next day.

I've come here a few times and the food is consistently great, the portions are pretty generous, the waitstaff are very attentive and it's a fun place to eat because of the decor. It's also located in a pretty neighborhood filled with little boutiques and cafes.

Pros: great food, decor, location

It's run by Thai people and the cooks are Thai, so I had a feeling this would be a good place once I figured that out. The Tom Kha Gai (Thai Chicken soup) is great here and neither I nor any of my friends/family had any complaints with the main dishes...which is good since most of us are Thai. Really enjoyed it. Will definitely return when I'm in the area.

Pros: food cooked by Thais

Cons: none

Nice, quiet atmosphere; good service; good selection on menu. I measure a Thai restaurant, on first visit, by the satays and the pad thai. Both were quite good here, spices light. On my next visit - and I will go again - I will likely order from the spicier side of the menu.

The best bets at this trendy, modern Thai spot are the savory sweet basil fried rice with chicken or the oceans four with shrimp, squid, scallops, mussels, coconut milk, basil leaves, string beans and pineapple in a spicy panang curry…
