You will not regret coming to the Lemon Grass, excellent food, excellent service and we even chatted with some regular customers about what to get. Make sure to try one of their specialty drinks.

This restaurant serves some of the best Thai food in the area. A very popular meeting place for lunch or dinner. The spring rolls are top rate.
