We had a birthday here last night and it was a very last minute booking which the tall lemongrass accommodated very well we loved all the food and the staff were beautiful and especially helpful when it came to helping me with warming bottles for my twin babies

I had one of the most wonderful meals on fathers day. My dad was so please and happy. Thank you quandoo for your support on making my booking over the phone on the weekend and showcasing fantastic venues like this!

Excellent food and really nice service. You wont be disappointed if you visit the Tall Lemon Grass. The soft shell crab is excellent as was the rest of our order. Reasonable pricing as well.

Good and service we're disappointing. Food was lukewarm at best. There were heaps of staff but nowhere to be found when you needed them. We also weren't offered dessert. The restaurant was half empty at best. There's lots of restaurants in Crows Nest so they need to lift their game!

Too many vegetables in dishes - not enough meat or fish. Vegetables somewhat undercooked.All dishes looked spectacular and the rice was especially delicious. Ambience excellent.
