Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I chose this restaurant because the reviews were good. Unfortunately the service was poor, waiters were inattentive and not engaging. The food was quite bland and I have to asked for soya sauce for added flavours. There was not salt & pepper available on the...table. I won’t be recommending this restaurant to others.More

This was a great spot, wonderful food. Only let down by extremely dirty skirting boards and tiles in the ladies toilets. Please get rid of the black mold, easily cleaned with some bleach.

The 5 of us unanimously agreed that we loved our respective meals. We all give The Lemongrass 4 stars, because we found our meals lacked veges. There was lots of delicious chicken, duck, seafood and tofu, but we would have preferred to swap some of...the pieces on veges. Although not abundant, the veges that we had, were delicious. The peanut sauce this place makes is one of the best we have ever tried. Their desserts also looked yummy, but we were too full. Please note, this place DOES serve alcohol(the website doesn't mention it). Their BYO price of $8 seems a bit excessive. Please balance your portions with more veggies(less meats) and you could proudly be one of the best Thai places in NZ!More

Food and service very poor, possibly due to the fact that we were with a largish group although have experienced similar with smaller tables recently. Some entrees came out half an hour later than partners, plus waited over an hour before we saw any food....My chicken and cashew stir fry was the worst I have had as had no flavour or tasty sauce on it, just salty and thickened with cornflour or similar. Generally meals unless stir fry lack vegetable accompaniments and if you order duck tamarind you get a bit of raw cabbage! Could do better. This place although usually full is very over rated and I think over priced and can get better meals at other nearby Thai restaurants.More

Went in last night, with a table of 6, the food was so bad that when we complained about one thing the waiter did nothing about it (entree). We when got our mains and they were all so horrible we just decided not to complain...as no one cared at all, we told him about a sauce that was off and he said he would get back to us a bout it and he didn't, dont waste your money here. shockingMore

I ordered the satay stir-fry and it was very good, hubby got a pork belly curry and it was absolutely delicious, tender and fatty just the way we like it! Portion sizes were generous and fair prices. We will definitely return next time we are...in the area.More

I have been here a couple of other times and has some small issues of some uncooked chicken, but after our experience last night I could not just say nothing. I felt like as soon as we arrived We were been rushed to to have...our order taken, my friend had a the waiter what was the difference between a couple of duck dishes as they looked the same, she got a reply from the waiter saying I don't know which took us by surprise though wait staff should know the menu. We never got asked if we were enjoying our meal or whether we would like another drink, our plates were taken away by a young waitress and never asked or never came back to us to see if we would like dessert, so after a bit of time we actually found the dessert and drink menu sitting on the window sill by our at no point did any wait staff tell us that is the dessert menu. We continued to wait for our waitress to come back so we could order dessert which did not happen so we call over a waiter and told him we has been waiting for awhile and we would like to order dessert, i put my order and he went to walk away without even asking my friend if she would like a dessert so I said my friend look would to order as well, he took our order and we waited and waited and waited so we called the waitress and ask if our had been put in and waited and waited again, so we were quite annoyed by this stage and started to get up and the waitress finally came back and said their was a problem with the machine??did we still want dessert no explanation of the machine problem, never came back and told us there was a problem did we want to order anything else, so if we had not asked we would have still sat and wondered what the heck going on. The male waiter and one of the young waitress were just so vague I don't even thing we got a smile out of young lady at all - the worst thing was she kept looking over at our table and could see we were waiting but neve came back to see if we needed anything else. So I am not one who would complain and likes to support our local restaurants but I sorry I will not be coming back you need to train your staff a lot better and a smile goes a long way.More

The restaurant has moved to a new building and that's for sure an improvement, especially the outside area. The food was OK (we had Lemongrass Signature fish and pork) and the service friendly (lovely lady called Lea). Only a couple of wine brands, next time...we will go for BYOMore
