Finally! I really feel there just isn’t enough really great Thai restaurants in San Antonio. I recently visited Lemongrass Thai. Ironically located in the same space Martha’s was (to whom I gave a horrible review) in the Thousand Oaks Shopping Center located off Hwy 218. I was enticed to visit as a challenge from my husband that the Pad Woon Sen was better that Mon’s/Spice, so we popped in on a random Tuesday evening.
I have to admit, we tend to eat with the blue-hairs around 6pm, but let me clarify, it’s not because I’m old, but just because I’m usually starving by that time. That out of the way—when we walked in there was just a few occupied tables, and we were seated at a cute little half booth. The layout of the restaurant looks about the same as it did when Martha’s occupied it, but Lemon Grass has really tried to give it a somewhat modern-asian flair. The waitstaff was very attentive—our water would barely be half full and he came to refill it.
Now, on to the food. I ordered my usual, the Pad Woon Sen and it was great. The huge serving was more than I could eat, but I kept on trying. I can’t say that it was better or worse than Mon’s or Spice’s, but I would put them on the same level. What a relief to finally find another great place that serves my favorite Thai dish.
I have been a repeat customer several more time. You should really stop by and support a local business. And for those of you who like to push your limits of spice level, be careful, the scale is 1-10 and level 2 burns my mouth. My husband can’t handle more than a 5. Let me know if you are brave enough to try a level 10!
