We went on a very busy Saturday night and dined early but it was already packed. Things got off to a shaky start when it became clear no-one had a clue about any of the wines offered on their menu. That hurdle overcome we ordered our meals and settled in to enjoy ourselves. The entrees came out for our party of six over a very long 20 minutes, and we had to ask where the last one was and it still took another 5 mins to appear. The food was lovely but the service left a lot to be desired. Our mains suddenly appeared while some of us were still eating our entrees, and chaos ensued, with staff trying to clear entrees and deliver mains while the last diners tried to hurry along with eating their entrees. Once again the food was delicious but the meal had already been a bit spoilt by the service. The lovely service staff tried their best but were clearly ambushed by a kitchen which failed to cope. The whole time takeaway orders streamed past which could explain a lot of things. I think this place has to decide what it wants to be and then make sure it can deliver on all fronts.

We dropped with no reservation and were seated in an outdoors on a warm Nelson evening. The food matched the setting. The food is a taste sensation. We got different entrees and shared them to get a taste of all the different flavours. Highly recommend.

Decided to try Lemon grass for a Thai meal. We had not booked but we're quickly shown to a table. Good service and quick. My husband had the corn fitters and didn't have to wait long. My thai chicken green curry was delicious and the vegetables were crunchy just how I like them. My husband had the crunchy chicken which he enjoyed. Service was great and the restaurant was full. Would recommend this Thai restaurant.
