I took people out for birthdays and business meals on three occasions over two weeks. I have always liked Lemon Grass but thought that they were overpriced. However, I am unwilling to pay high prices for mediocre meals. Downtown is still the best location for food. It was not as busy as previously. Our business lunch was only average at... More

A very relaxing atmosphere and good food. Can be crowded on a weekend night, but its worth the wait.

The first thing I noticed about Lemon Grass was that most of the tables were full and everyone look relaxed and engaged in conversation. The customers seem to be enjoying the food and well as their dining companions. No one seemed on abfustvto leave anz it was at lunch time during the week. We didn't have to wait for a... More

We've eaten at the downtown location because it's close to our home. We like to find a booth or table in the side room. The food is good, service lovely and helpful. A nice spot for couples or out with friends.

My husband and I came for dinner and as an overall experience the food was good but overall atmosphere was lacking. It felt too quiet to have to much of a conversation so we didn't linger much and left as soon as we were done eating.

in love the lemongrass restaurants. The original is in downtown Olympia, there is a small intimate restaurant in Tumwater -always busy and a larger restaurant in Lacey. Ant Thai crushing is fabulous. I love the Thai salad, or any of the curries. You will love any of the restaurants. Enjoy!!!!

I love this place! I eat here every time I am visiting Olympia. I have never had a meal here that was less than superb. The Eurasian rice is a particular favorite but so are the curries, the honey walnut shrimp and the Singapore noodles. It's family owned and operated and both this one and the one in Lacey are...
