A nice little restaurant/bar. I was seated at my table and the chair was broken. Apparently, the place becomes a bar at night and furniture gets moved around (and maybe damaged?). Could have been a problem if I were heavier. Luckily, it didn't break more and I was able to change seats. The food was decent. They only have one... More

HI Molly, Thanks for taking the time to review us. There seems to have been some confusion during your visit with us as we are proud to offer the most vegetarian and gluten free menu options in the city. Every curry we offer has a vegetarian option and is actually stated on the menu. Above and beyond these options, we... More

Located downstairs (below grade) in Market Square, uptown Saint John. When I walked in, I actually had to ask if I found the right place. Looks like a simple pub...and it is. In addition to the the Thai menu there is also a traditional pub menu [I think they called it Peppers] and from the look of it, it doubles... More

Thanks a ton for your review. Hopefully we will see you again soon! Perhaps on your next visit the patio will be in full swing and you can dine outside on the Waterfront! More

We were looking for a lunch spot while exploring St. John. Lemongrass also has an associated pub named Pepper's Pub. We actually ordered from the Pepper's Pub menu. I had crab cakes, which were pretty good but not great. My wife had fish and chips. She said the fish was terrific. We were there on a nice early fall day,... More

Fun location on the boardwalk, great people watching. I got the Tom Yum Goong soup, which is usually a favorite of mine and the curried noodles for lunch. The soup tasted nothing like authentic Thai soup, it was spicy but otherwise had no flavor..I didnt finish it. The curried noodles had decent chunks of white meat chicken but the noodles... More

Lots of great food and many different beer to pick from. The patio is great but get there early as during tourist season it can fill up very quickly, or if there is an event going on on the boardwalk.

We had lunch at Lemongrass today. They have great outdoor seating but it was unusually hot so we sat inside. The Tom Ka Kha soup was tasty, but a lot less thick than we are used to. We had to hunt for the chicken. The pork satay and peanut sauce more than made up for the thin soup. It was... More

These guys have a great craft beer menu. Always changing, always delicious. Can't wait to see what they bring in next. If you are a craft beer lover, this is the place for you.

We found this place by a menu display on the upper level. It was definitely a good find. The appetizers were quick, the food excellent. The server was attentive. Prices were reasonable for the area. The atmosphere was more pub than asian, but at a low drone, rather than a roar.

Thank kleektours
