Tucked away on the third floor of Mushrif Mall is the cosy, pocket-friendly eatery Lemongrass Thai Restaurant. Bamboo chairs and printed silk scarves give the dimly-lit room a traditional feel.

If your knowledge of Thai food needs expanding, then you’re in luck as the menu is displayed on an iPad with full descriptions of each dish. And the polite staff are always happy to help you with some great recommendations.

Thai cuisine is known for its rich yet well-balanced flavours, and the tom yum goong here – which you can have with chicken, vegetables or prawns – delivers on that promise. The soup is spicy, sour and salty with each and every mouthful.

Meanwhile, the Lemongrass set menu features samples of five different starters. We particularly enjoy the tender  satay skewers and fresh, crunchy glass noodle salad.

No trip to any Thai restaurant is complete without a curry and this place has an excellent, classic green variety. The sweetness from the Thai basil and the coconut cream isn’t overpowering, and it all pairs well with a mound of sticky jasmine rice that comes served in a woven bamboo basket.

If you’re looking for a mid-week meal that won’t let you down on taste or price, Lemongrass Thai Restaurant is a safe and budget-friendly bet.

The bottom line

Big Thai flavours for nice low prices.

I have been to this restaurant for at lest 20 times, all i can say is that they serve some descent food preserving the authentic taste of Thai food.
It's the right place for the people who never tried Thai before, the staff are mostly Thai and the food is excellent compered to Thailand.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant for romantic dinner.
I like to order the following:
-Green Curry chicken
-Grilled Beef Salad
-TOM YUM YEN (Lime Juice with Lemongrass)
