Diners’ Reviews

“It was a wonderful night. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend Lemongrass. Prices are reasonable.” Yvonne’s Column. Melbourne Observer

When a restaurant has been opened for over 25 years you know it's going to be good. In a time where new dining hotspots are popping up daily sometimes it's the classics that really impress. Born in 1989 (like Taylor Swift) Lemongrass has been dishing up fresh authentic food from three generations of family chefs. Read more

Had a lunch with colleague at Lemongrass. Mate had massaman curry which was nice, needed to taste it a bit .. looked so good!! And it was, flavors aahh.. those flavors. Had pork neck BBQ myself and it was good. The spices (HOT!) and well made pork dish is always a fantastic combination.
Extremely happy about the food. Will definitely go back again for more.. RECOMMENDED!!

Best Pad Thai and Roti I’ve had in Melbourne besides …Elizabeth St. but I think LEMONGRASS is the best and I’ve tried at a lot of Melbourne’s Thai restaurants.

I have been coming here since the 1990's & it is still 1 of my favourite Thai restaurants in Australia. Although I have been told that it can b a bit hit & miss now depending on whether the original female chef is on or not. I have never been disappointed though & I try 2 visit whenever I am in Melbourne... Read more
