Lemongrass Cafe

Always a good meal. The martini with mint is fantastic.

Vermicelli Bowl

Really good vermicelli bowl, with chicken and spring rolls.

Food is good, over priced though.

Clean, well decorated restaurant. Service although inconsistent is usually average or slightly above average.

The strength of the Lemongrass is the food, Vermicelli dishes are usually very solid and I’ve rarely been disappointed in exploring the menu a little more.

The biggest draw back with LC is the prices, Vietnamese food is generally much cheaper everywhere else and Its hard to not get the feeling that you’re overpaying.

If you don’t mind paying a little more, the food is very good.

Vermicelli Bowl

Fresh ingredients and good flavor.

Salad rolls

The best salad rolls in Edmonton. Rice noodles, cucumber, one large prawn and a mint leaf all rolled together. Yum.

Chicken Chow Mein

Expensive but very good.

 

A bit pricey, food quality is good, and service is decent

The best restaurant in Edmonton

I love this place. It is simple and still very elegant.
Food is excellent. Love their rice noodle bowls.

Vermicelli Bowl

The portion is a good size I would maybe like to see more shrimps in the #40 though.

Salad rolls

Love them Love them Love them….I would be able to fill up on those alone. They could be a little cheaper though.

Very good Vietnamese food

Lemongrass Cafe is a very casual establishment – a good place to go in jeans or shorts. The decor is pleasant, and the restaurant appears clean. Ample parking as it is located in a small mall in south Edmonton. Reservations are not required

Service at the restaurant is a little spotty – but efficient. The restaurant is very busy, and the waiters were hopping.

The menu prices, area, as others indicated a bit pricey – $17 for a vermicelli rice bowl for example – but there are many good finds for less on the menu, and if you are vegetarian, this is nirvana with its own vegetarian menu that actually has protein in the food.

We settled on a hot and sour soup, which is ample to share with probably 4 or 5 people. $9.00. Very nice and chocked full of mushrooms, tofu and vegetable, and just spicy enough to be enjoyable.

My companion had the tofu in coconut and lime sauce which was excellent. I had the house special of banana leaf wrapped salmon. Very well spiced with traditional Vietnamese flavors, the salmon is perfectly cooked, most, tender and well seasoned. Served with vermicelli and steamed vegetables, the dish was very substantial. We both had leftovers to take home. Total bill was under $50 for two.

The restaurant is very amenable to families and large groups. A good place to go with friends for dinner or after a show for some good food. Not a romantic setting for ta hot date though

Hot and Sour Soup

A very substantial version of this popular dish – sour and spicy enough to be palatable – full of tofu and mushrooms. Flavor was excellent. This comes in a portion large enough to fill 5-6 bowls of soup.

Highly recommended

This place is a gem for tasty Vietnamese food. As a vegetarian, I have been a little spoiled with the vast and most comforting Vietnamese vegetarian options. Lemongrass has the greatest and latest menu selection for the carnivore and vegetarians. Nice décor, delicious food, and great dining experience… but I have to admit the portions are a way to BIG…for it’s very reasonable price. :) Guess there’s left over for the next day. All in all, the food’s TERRIFIC… highly recommended.
