After seeing positive reviews, I decided to book Lemongrass for our NYE's Dinner. Me and my other half are very satisfied with the restaurant. The Chicken with Cashew Nut and the Steam Sea Bass is perfect. The only flaw is the Glass Noodle with Crabmeat...More

We went to Lemongrass on a recommendation from our Tour Guide and he wasn't wrong. Really tasty authentic Vietnamese food accompanied by great service. A little gem on a side street that we never would have known about.
