Following a recommendation from my aunts, we popped in one evening for a family meal. I had a most excellent chicken and prawn curry, Nic had a highly-recommended trio of fillet (being several slices of each of Kudu, Warthog and Eland), and Rose had a fragrant Thai-green chicken curry. James, who was not hungry when we placed orders, changed his... More

Whilst looking for a restaurant in Plettenberg Bay, we noticed Lemon Grass had been getting a number of good reviews, so thought we would give it a go. The restaurant was steadily busy for a Monday night. I suspect a daytime meal is best to fully appreciate the views over the beach. I ordered the Cape Malay Curry, which the... More

I must have been unlucky...first of all I was seated out on the deck which was too windy, but told all tables inside were booked...then the Thai green curry I ordered came and was really very ordinary and seemed to have been reheated...rice was sticky and definitely had been microwaved...service was poor and bill was hefty...I would not visit again....
