Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Really small amount of rice (not enough for one). When we asked for more rice, they charged us 2€ extra. When we finished, we asked for a container to take our leftovers home, and they were also charging us more per box! The owner’s manners...were not nice at all when being asked about it. We were usual customers but won’t go there any more. Not worth it taking into account the price and what they serve and charge.More

I visited Lemon Grass in June for dinner. Lemon Grass is a small thai restaurant with authentic thai food menu, Menu is exhaustively long, it was hard to pick the dish. Food was good and portions nicely sized. Interior was not on the same level...with cuisine, it was very typical small and busy diner.More

I've been around Kallio for some years now and have been trying different restaurants. This was the first time I went here and I was positively surprised. It's a small cozy place with usually many people inside. Still the atmosphere was calm and nice. I...had vegetarian dish and it was really good. It was also made quickly, and served by a nice waiter. They have many options, but a bit expensive. Around 15e for a dish, but the dishes are large and will l not leave you hungry. It was worth it and had a good time. Feeling satisfied. Try it and you'll see.. Hope there's space..More

This is a very small restaurant that does takeaway also. We were lucky enough not to need a reservation. The food was beautiful and the prices were reasonable. The only thing that could be better was the service. There was only one girl serving and...she looked like she didn’t want to be there.More

My friend recommended Lemon Grass as the best Thai in Helsinki. I don't quite agree, but surely is worth visiting. A bit off the beaten track, but easily accessible by metro, tram or bus.

This is one of the best basic-priced Thai restaurants in Helsinki. The restaurant is the right size for personal attention of guests. The food has been fresh every time and prepared for the customer. Labels describing the fiery nature of the food are very accurate....The restaurant is close to the metro and easy to find. The perfect place to start a restaurant tour in Kallio.More

I've had lunch here a few times and dinner once. Lunch list consists of four options, of which one is/can be made vegan. Lunch massaman tofu curry was too limey and lowkey weird-tasting, but phad thais were good. The complimentary appetizer soup with thai herbs...and mushrooms was delicious. Dinner menu is really extensive. Green tofu curry that I had was excellent, fresh and full-bodied.More

A small family run place, offers rich Thai food selection. We had tried various dishes and all of our orders were very good. The service was courteous.

I have visited this place for many years and usually I liked their food, although the service has never been excellent, just ok. But today, I visited the place for lunch and there were new people working there and service was terrible. First young woman...told me to move to another table to sit down, it was ok, because the restaurant was almost full and she wanted toggle my table to other guys who came to eat after me. Then I sit down to another place like as told to do so. My food came very quickly, but the young thai waitress did not give me a soup which included for lunch. I had to stand up and tell her ; Can I have the soup too, like other customers? She was very rude any other way. No smile, no apology. This restaurant was one of my favourite but I would not go there anymore. At least if the same woman was there, never again.More

We visited as a couple and a baby. We had just main cources on tuesday evening. Place is quite small and it was almost full when we left. Food came fast and it was good. Three chili-symbols was quite Well eatable. Service was rude and...it was difficult to get service. The table was hiven fast though. Weiter did not speak much. Have to also mention that the chicken was from brasil and the pork&beef was from germany.they dont serve alcohol. If you want good food fast, this is your place. If you want nice evening in the restaurant, this is not your place.More

Excellent thai food. Cozy atmosphere, very polite and kind staff. Menu is so large, that it is hard to choose! Our teenagers enjoyed the meals as well. Great location in Kallio, close to a tramline and subway! This is THE place to go!
