Gayot, the Cleveland Free Times, and the Plain Dealer all have kind things to say about Lemongrass Thai Cuisine. Though not everyone's warmed to the new management and some gripe about the "no substitutions" policy, online reviewers mostly agree: DineSite.com users give the Thai restaurant three out of four stars, and both Citysearchers and TripAdvisors give it 3.5 out of five stars.
- With a broad menu full of appetizers, entrées and desserts, Lemon Grass has something for everyone (particularly if you like shrimp), and curry dishes can even be customized to your taste: select chicken, seafood or tofu, and pair it with red, green, yellow or Massaman curry. – Gayot
- The No. 1 spot here is the duck. The crispy skin, fork-tender meat and the peanutty Masaman curry sauce makes it a triumph. I just want to come back to try all the other sauces offered. It should be a great way to make up for lost time. – Debbi Snook, Plain Dealer
- While the deco is not going to wow you, we have ALWAYS found the quality and quantity of food to be excellent. Always freshly prepared, hot and tasty. Top it off with a Singha beer and you have the perfect night out. – timfam48, Citysearch
