Waihi is not exactly the most dynamic town in the world, but it certainly has historic charm and friendly people and at least one of most styles of restaurant. Lemongrass is unmistakably Thai from the charming staff in national costume to the yummy food. You can eat in or take out and eat in will be in a warm and... More

We visited Thai Lemongrass Restaurant as we passed through town. The restaurant had ample and clean seating. Our hostess was charming (and really well dressed, especially for lunch!) Our dishes were all well-prepared and were spiced as requested. The vegetables in our entrees were all very fresh.

We picked up takeaway Thai at Thai Lemongrass and thoroughly enjoyed it. Dishes were fresh and tasty and the vegetables in the stir-fries were fresh and delicious. We tried the mixed entree and thought all of the selections were great. We would definitely visit Thai Lemongrass again when visiting Waihi.

Pleasant surroundings and friendly service make this Thai restaurant worth a visit. A very large serving of fresh veggies are used in these simple Thai dishes that leave one feeling fully satisfied. The hot is very hot so we choose medium spice. A good choice if you don't feel like cooking but don't expect exotic Thai cuisine.

I dropped in and picked up takeaways. The tom yum was lovely - the prawns were good to eat (no tails and deveined). I think I just picked the wrong main to get spicy (I got the chilli and coconut stir fry). The beef was so tender and good and the veg were also plentiful. The staff member that served... More
