Bangkok 2011 - Dinner at Lemongrass Restaurant

We were wondering around Soi 24 Sukhumvit looking for a place to eat and came across this quaint little restaurant called Lemongrass. It is in a converted 2-storey bungalow which is quite charmingly decorated with old furniture and antiques - my kind of place. Being a house, the dining areas are divided into several sections. The bigger section is at the back facing a small garden.


The restaurant seemed to have received many accolades judging from the certificates adorning the walls. I was impressed by the beautiful fresh helicornias which decorated most corners of the house. They certainly do make an effort on the decor.

We ordered a few standard dishes to share. The food was good - but not exceptional. Our starter - Crispy Beef with Basil Leaves - was flavourful but a bit chewy.


The Tom Yam Goong was a bit better - nice balance of flavours and not overwhelmingly hot.


Duck Curry with Pineapple - this was one of the better dishes.


Laab Moo - spicy minced pork salad. A classic Isaan dish that is done quite well.


This was a spicy fish soup - a bit like a Tom Yam but lighter and sweeter in taste. Surprisingly good.


Dinner at Lemongrass is quite a pleasant experience. Though the food did not live up to the standard of the decor - I would still recommend it for the ambiance.
