Basic restaurant where service is good and food is OK - not upmarket in any respect but for a quick Thai fix it's OK. Plenty of takeout while we were there so obviously people like the food. Not licensed.

Small family run restaurant. Greeted by a family member with an attitude. Food was good, but I was expecting better based on other reviews I've read. We had their spring rolls (fresh and fried), Pho, steamed fish, Vermicelli bowl, Spicy pork dish. They were all great, but if I were to go back, I would try something else.

We are visiting from Minnesota. Stopped in based off the reviews. We came in at 530 on a Thursday. Seated and were able to order right away. Were served our meals within 10 minutes. Server was very attentive. Food was hot and very good. We will definitely try to go back this vacation!

The food speaks for itself. We had a party of seven and they seated us. Family run and she gave us recommended food choices. We all ordered different types of pho. All was happy. Food was tasty and hot. I recommend this place. 👍😎

My friends who I am visiting with on Oahu recommended this family run restaurant for delicious and authentic Vietnamese food. They were spot on! An unpretentious and casual place, in an easy location to find, I enjoyed two classic dishes in a very friendly atmosphere. I very much look forward to returning for another meal during my three week stay... More

The food quality is good, pricing good and service good. This is a typical Asian variety that does well in the quality of food. BYOB

Lemongrass is a great little hole in the wall restaurant with tasty food. Garlic shrimp with sticky rice is a favorite. We recently had chicken with kabocha (squash) curry and it was delicious. Pad thai and summer rolls are also very good. The restaurant is BYOB, which is a big plus. Interior is plain and ambiance is nothing special, but... More

We ate here for the first time today. Three lunch meals and one app was over $50. Expensive for lunch for three people. The vegetarian spring rolls were just ok, very small and you only get four with an order. Definitely not worth the price. The pad thai was very plain and not very tasty. The garlic spicy Thai shrimp... More
