Stumbled across this place with hungry, hangover bellies when wandering around Polk Street. I really liked the restaurant for a few reasons: 1. The beer is served in frozen mugs! Yum 2. The beer is cheap 3. The fresh lemonade was excellent 4. Big portion...More

We visited as a group of eight, and even though the restaurant was busy, they managed to seat us. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. The food was delicious, and very comparable to other thai restaurants we have visited around the world. It was...More

Best resturant in San Francisco, bar none. Fantastic service, great value, exquisite food. Some reviewers have quibbled about how authentically Thai some of the dish choices are, ..they could grow up, and choose a different dish.

My sister, nephew (18), and I stopped by Lemongrass for a quick bite to eat. For just stumbling upon it we were pleasantly surprised. We shared a few dishes. The "hot" steak salad wasn't hot in temperature like we asked.

Food tastes horrible... Nothing like thai food... tom yang kung is too sweet.. and papaya salad is not fresh enough... green curry was not that bad... but it didnt worth to the price

This is a sit down and take out restaurant. I was there with my son and it took over 20 minutes to get our meal. It's okay for the money but I don't think I will go back.

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
