Had the pad Thai and it was good. The lunch box was a really affordable and good tasting meal. I recommend this for a quick delicious meal.

I love Thai food and this place is inexpensive, clean, and has great food. They ask you how hot you want it. Since I was with my daughter I did not go for my usual hotness and kept it mild. With that said the heat was moderate but good. Very nice ladies who wait on you and many people were... More

In the back of a strip mall hidden behind a Dunkin Doughnuts...some of the best Thai food in the area. Truly cheap eats and great portions. If you like great Thai food forget DC and it's prices and head to this place. Ambiance/atmosphere is not its' Forte, but great tasting food and value is. Service is always great, never had... More

My fiance and I come here about once a month or so, originally we were drawn in by their delicious soups which warm you up well in the winter! We've had a couple of their different entrees and the food always qualifies for a decent 4-star rating (not more because I've had better Thai food although not in this area).... More

This restaurant was recently (3/42016) written up in Washington Post Weekend Section as having a secret Thai menu that had very good for authentic food and as very good value. On that recommendation I tried it. It is in a strip mall that is in a mixed use neighborhood with no charm. Restaurant it self is ordinary in looks but... More

This restaurant has been at this location for over 20 years. This is the second time I have eaten here. The first time was over 15 years ago. The lunch box specials are a fairly decent value and the cream ice tea was enjoyable. I started with an egg drop soup which was okay. I then moved on to a... More

We found this place by accident when we were wondering around shopping and looking for someplace to eat lunch. I have celiac disease and it is sometimes difficult to find gluten-free options that are really GF. I ordered Pad Thai and the server knew what GF meant. The Pad Thai was awesome, the best I have had in the last... More

We visit this place quite often not just because we live close by but also because of the excellent food here. The staff is always warm and friendly and they are happy to alter Spice Levels to your taste. We have tried the same dish on 3 different Spice levels starting from Mild to Medium to EXTRA EXTRA SPICY and... More

We were introduced to Lemongrass Thai by our neighbor who loves this place and we can see why. Friendly neighborhood place, great staff and awesome Thai food. If you don't like spicy then order mild, medium spice can sometimes light your @$& on fire! But it all tastes good, great even. I agree with another poster who called Lemongrass a... More
