Dining at the Lemon Grass is as good as it gets for Asian food. It's considered Vietnamese and there's nothing anywhere to compete with their Singapore Noodles, Heaven Beef, Rain Drop Noodles, and just about anything on the menu. Some try to avoid eating at Lemon Grass too often as it can be habit forming! Ask anyone in Olympia who... More

Found ourselves in Olympia Washington, actually at a hotel in Tumwater. This restaurant was within 7 minutes walking distance and we felt like Thai food. We both love Thai food and have lots of experience eating it. It was amazing at this restaurant! First of all a great menu, wherein almost everything has a veggie option (tofu instead of chicken,...

Curry dishes tasted great. Servings are large. Had enough leftovers for several meals. Only drawback was 3-star (3 of 4 star) wasn't at all hot. Would definitely come back.

If you are in the beautiful city of Olympia, please stop... More

Nicole and her staff prepare the freshest Thai food you can find for miles around. Olympia is woefully short of good restaurants and the Lemon Grass in downtown Olympia is the exception. When we get tired of preparing meals at home we always opt for the downtown Lemon Grass for a fine meal.

They have a lot of great menu items, but one of my favorites is the mango salad with grilled shrimp. Another great menu item is the combination salad with noodles, egg rolls, grilled pork, and shrimp. Their food is a little pricey but it always tastes fresh!

My wife loves the Lemon Grass restaurant and I like it a lot too. She always gets the same thing: 7 Favor Beef. It is a really good dish. I like the Vietnamese and Tia food dishes. I get them medium high on the spicy level. Good stuff.
