It wasn't easy to find a restaurant in this locality on a Wednesday night that wasn't either empty or rather desperate looking. However if you find yourself in the nearby Holiday Inn Express and want something different to their brightly lit, homogenous and soulless canteen you may want to give this place a try. It's off the main road so... More

We were in Cambodia last year and wanted to taste their food again, so when we discovered this place in London, we just had to go and try it. We loved the garlic mushroom starter, and found the lemongrass chicken, spicy vegetables, and egg rice to be very good also. Perhaps not as good as we had in Cambodia, but... More

We have visited Cambodia on several occasions and found that the food in Lemongrass quite different to anything we experienced in that country. Yes the situation and ambience of the restuarant is quiet, the staff very pleasant but having said that the restuarant has little to commend itself. The food was OK but very ordinary and for what we ordered... More

Fantastic Cantonese food reasonably priced and really tucked away in Camden borough. Owners are lovely, been going there for the last 15 years definitely worth a shot!

Small friendly restaurant. Unexpectedly very different to Chinese & Thai. Suggest the Treats starters, Lok Luk steak, Phnom Pem chicken, Ginger Egg fried rice & Spicey prawns from the smallish menu.

Invited to this lovely restaurant by Cambodian friends who had praised the food and also the friendly service. We weren't disappointed. The food was amazing with some delicious sauces to accompany the variety of starters. There was five of us and we chose the set meal C for 4 and then added a couple of extras. The Scallop toast was... More

Booked and came here Saturday for a Friends birthday, Atmosphere was great and the staff are very friendly. There was 5 of us and we were seated quickly and the drinks orders were taken straight away, the boys all had beer and I stuck to Still Water (very unexciting, I know) All the boys had starters, Soup, Veggie Spring rolls,...
