Inspired by our visit to Cambodia we sought a Cambodian restaurant in London. Surprised by there being only one we visited and were bowled over by the fresh and authentic dishes. The restaurant was quite busy but the service was excellent. We had treats galore, lok Luk steak ( so good we ordered more), Phnom Penh chicken, fish amok, mango... More

Agree completely with the last review, ("My Favourite Restaurant in London"). Over the years, since the last century, we too have returned time and again We always enjoy the food and the atmosphere, in spite of cold plates (investment in a plate warmer would be worthwhile) and a fairly rapid turnover in serving staff.

I stumbled across Lemongrass back in 2001 when I moved to Camden but it's a place I come back to time and time again, regardless of how far across London I have to travel. It's possibly the loveliest and yummiest little restaurant in the whole city. It doesn't look like much from the outside but that's 100% its charm. It... More

Went with a couple of friends after the pub. It wasn't very full and that was a surprise because the food was excellent. One of us is veggie and there was enough to choose from. The best starter was the mushrooms and we also had the leek cake and the Golden Triangles. The Phnom Penh Chicken with pepper was very... More

It wasn't easy to find a restaurant in this locality on a Wednesday night that wasn't either empty or rather desperate looking. However if you find yourself in the nearby Holiday Inn Express and want something different to their brightly lit, homogenous and soulless canteen you may want to give this place a try. It's off the main road so... More

The food was amazing. But the service could be more welcoming. They clearly didn't want us to stay for much longer (overheard), so told us that there weren't any deserts available.

We were in Cambodia last year and wanted to taste their food again, so when we discovered this place in London, we just had to go and try it. We loved the garlic mushroom starter, and found the lemongrass chicken, spicy vegetables, and egg rice to be very good also. Perhaps not as good as we had in Cambodia, but... More

We have visited Cambodia on several occasions and found that the food in Lemongrass quite different to anything we experienced in that country. Yes the situation and ambience of the restuarant is quiet, the staff very pleasant but having said that the restuarant has little to commend itself. The food was OK but very ordinary and for what we ordered... More

Fantastic Cantonese food reasonably priced and really tucked away in Camden borough. Owners are lovely, been going there for the last 15 years definitely worth a shot!
