Been here twice for dinner and both times food has been AWESOME. Very nice and authentic flavors. Texture in Thai spring rolls is unbeliveably crispy. Large portions but just can stop eating before it's all gone. Restaurant is very small and they do not take reservations. Better be prepared for short wait outside and for larger groups not easy for... More

It's one of those place that you just realise you keep going back there time after time. It may be difficult to get a seat there as they do not take reservations and locals know the place, so during busy hours it is quite crowded. However, the churn is pretty good as you don't really spend a lot of time... More

I have been in Lemon Grass few times and ordered food home also. Have tried different meals and they have always been really good and tasty! The portions are a bit bigger when u eat there than order home. The staff could be a little bit more enthusiastic.

It was a really nice experience to have dinner at Lemon Grass. It is a popular place; Wolt and other take-out deliverymen frequently zooming by to pick up their food. No wonder we had to wait a bit for a table to become free. It was worth it though. Really nice and friendly service, tasty food with just slight too... More

We have been here many many times over the past 8 years. And the food has always been absolutely perfect. The place may not look like the top quality restaurant but don't let that bother. You can't book a table beforehand but even if the place is full, people still want to wait on the street to get a seat.... More

This place is situated in the trendy area of Kallio, not far from the central area of Helsinki. it's pretty small and usually full of people (you might even sit with strangers by the same table as we did). the meniu is extremely big so it took some time before we were ready with the order. the portions are pretty...

Having personally worked severally years in Thailand, I feel like I can confidently say that this excellent and intimate restaurant serves the most authentic homecooked Thai food in Helsinki. I've visited this restaurant several times and the quality is always outstanding. The staff is very friendly and always serve their guests with genuine Thai hospitality.

I would say this place deserves three and a half stars. Good food but bland interior. Worth a visit.
