We visited as a group of eight, and even though the restaurant was busy, they managed to seat us. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. The food was delicious, and very comparable to other thai restaurants we have visited around the world. It was...More

We could have sworn that this restaurant used to be on the other side of the street but our server (the owner?) assured us otherwise; perhaps our memory was playing tricks! Anyway we went here for dinner as we had been twice before on previous...More

Stopped here for a quick dinner. Had the mussels. Portion for me was good. Nice place, to try. The starter was ok. Wantan. One try is ok.

Best resturant in San Francisco, bar none. Fantastic service, great value, exquisite food. Some reviewers have quibbled about how authentically Thai some of the dish choices are, ..they could grow up, and choose a different dish.

My sister, nephew (18), and I stopped by Lemongrass for a quick bite to eat. For just stumbling upon it we were pleasantly surprised. We shared a few dishes. The "hot" steak salad wasn't hot in temperature like we asked.

Food tastes horrible... Nothing like thai food... tom yang kung is too sweet.. and papaya salad is not fresh enough... green curry was not that bad... but it didnt worth to the price

This is a sit down and take out restaurant. I was there with my son and it took over 20 minutes to get our meal. It's okay for the money but I don't think I will go back.

Beautiful authentic Thai food with delicious fresh ingredients. We loved it so much we went back twice. Try the "asparagus lovers" special. Prawns, scallops and lightly stir fried asparagus in a delicious Thai ginger and soy sauce. Beer is very reasonable too. We have been...More

Popped in for an impromptu Saturday night dinner: - large restaurant with many tables available (we dined relatively early for a Saturday night) - plenty of choice on the menu (perhaps too much!) including lots of vegetarian options - we all had curries and enjoyed...More

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
