We like eating at the downtown restaurant although it can be a bit slow. Quality is good but service was a tad bit slow on this last visit. The curry dishes are my favorites. It has a small bar.

We did takeout. It was quite disappointing. The lo mein was a bunch of plain noodles. No discernable sauce and corresponding, no flavor. Veggies were few and pork even fewer. The green curry? Well, that was an experience. It was green allright. A "radioactive" day-glo...More

There are three Lemon Grass Restaurants in Thurston County, and all of them offer exceptional cuisine but the one downtown has the most character. I love to go with friends and share dishes. My favorite is the Seven Flavor Beef.

Great Thai food, although the menu has other Asian fare as well. The staff seemed a bit tired during our visit, but were pleasant and the food was very good, if not as amazing as the review might suggest.
