After a few years of trial and error I have finally found "my" dish here. They offer a Kung Pao Chicken dish but it can be modified and made with tofu. It is not a lunch special, those are $12, it's slightly more expensive ringing in at $15. The chicken version is $16. I request that they make it mild... More

As Hawaii goes, this restaurant for the price is very reasonable and the food is really good...so much so that my wife and I ate here twice over a seven night stay. I enjoyed the pad thai and the orange chicken, while my wife loved the lettuce chicken wraps and the poke bowl.

Served fresh and hot and the service is very friendly. The dishes seem traditional, but they are prepared with twists of flavor.

We ate there twice it was the best food option for the price in the area. North times the Styrofoam container broke spilling precious red curry everywhere.

Being relatively new to eating Thai Food I'd say I'm no connoisseur however I know what good food tastes like and how it can enrich your tastebuds.......unfortunately Lemongrass Bistro didn't do it for me. I actually went 3 times as I thought I'd maybe ordered the wrong dish and was eager to try others however they all tasted the same... More

Excellent wraps, but service is really bad. Slow, slow, slow. But that's okay if you're on Island time.

Staying in the resort area. Looking for good Asian food at a fair price-Go Here. OK so it is in a food court. So What? You can sit outside, enjoy your lunch and do not have to feel like you are at a food court. Poke salad was great and my food was very good.

I have gone to this restaurant for many years. The food started out fantastic. Over the years it got worse and worse. Recently I saw that it was closed down for a while. Tonight I went back and found it open again. So I tried my favorite dish, the Garlic Sambal Beef. The presentation wasn't quite as good as the... More

Lemongrass has been a fixture at the Food Court in the Waikoloa Queen's Shops for a number of years. It was the first restaurant we tried a few years ago after receiving a recommendation. This month we went back twice and found one of our new favorite meals is the yakisoba. The serving is easily big enough for 2 people... More

Cheap but not great food. Good enough for fast and cheap but definitely doesn't measure up to most restaurants on the Island.
