I'm not a bun bo hue fan, but my boyfriend is. This is not your usual pho shops or Vietnamese restaurant. It's pretty modern with a bar and all. I actually ordered a lemongrass item from Lemongrass. It was lemongrass chicken and boy it was tasty! You can really taste the flavor. Note: they charge extra for rice when you... More

I have been to the Lemongrass multiple times and the food is delicious. It is a restaurant in a strip mall. There are large windows and much sunlight. The interior is fine but the food is delicious. My guest has the Catfish Pot which is a little pricey but very delicious. I had a Rice Pot which is very reasonably... More

Food was good could have been a little better but still not bad. I would come back again and see how it is a second time around.

party of 6 of us and we each ordered different dishes including soup, fried rice, short ribs, Pork Bun noodles, and the Vegi Crepe. Food quality was just average -- nothing really stood out from amongst all the dishes. Serving sizes were normal and we had plenty of food but the service was slow. One of us didnt get their...

My brother wanted a bowl of pho so we decided to try this place since it's in the same shopping area as the Japanese grocery store we frequent. His pho was very flavorful and looked like a typical bowl of pho soup so he was quite happy. However my fried rice with chicken was quite possibly the worst plate of... More

We sampled the tofu spring rolls and bun with grilled tofu. Others in our party raved about the pho, said it was amazing, and the beef fried rice was tasty and ample. Thai iced tea and Vietnamese coffee both good. This lovely little restaurant is in an out of the way shopping center, but doesn't lack for good food, service... More

I have been to the lemongrass twice. Both times, service was excellent and food was delicious. This last time my friend and I had spring rolls with broiled skewered chicken, Mongolian beef, and sautéed green beans with tofu. The spring rolls were the best I've ever had. None of the lettuce and rice noodle blah stuffing - instead, broiled chicken,... More

The food here is mediocre at best. The chicken and the beef are both fatty. Given the proliferation of Vietnamese and Thai restaurants in the area, I'd prefer to go to a much better one. I've been here three times and didn't really care for it no matter what I ordered. The food is mundane. The service is okay. The... More

We've eaten here several times and I think the food is good. We started with pho, bun, crepes and have expandid to platers and catfish. Tasty, fresh and healthy. The service is good and the people are friendly. Definitely worth a visit.
