Instead of cooking we decided to have the early bird. This is good value with a good choice of plates. Food is tasty and service staff is attentive and friendly

My husband and I had a delicious meal in the Lemongrass. We both love Asian food and there's a lovely selection to choose from. The service is really good and the staff are all very friendly. The portions are generous and the food was piping hot.

Never had a bad meal here. I would recommend the lunch time bento box. Although can be off the menu if it's a special day. Mother's Day etc. But great value and I never leave hungry. Staff are a pleasure and I love being able to see into the kitchen

Food is grand, not the nicest in town and often flavorless but it's not the worst either. I would return if a friend asked to meet here however it is not somewhere I would suggest for food

Coffee shop upstairs with Restaurant downstairs. Difficult to make a decision as all the food is so good on the menu. Would class it more towards Thai food than Chinese. Excellent fast service and have never been waiting long. Prices are reasonable and staff are helpful and friendly.

Always enjoy the Lemongrass when I go. Prices average around €20 for a main and €5 for dessert. Food is healthy and very tasty. Lacking a drinks menu, would be favorable to see the list and prices rather than being told by waitresses. There is a nice atmosphere and staff are friendly.

This is one of the better Lemongrass Restaurants in the chain and the location is lovely as you have views of the river. Food was very tasty, well presented and fresh. Our waiters were very friendly but service wasn’t great, could of done with more attention to our table i.e. water, drinks, etc.…. But overall a lovely meal.

Thank CinnamonGum
