The sweetest, most welcoming and humble Thai restaurant in town, Lemongrass is also delicious, which explains why it’s been popular for 20 years. Chef/owner Toi Sawatdee, one of the hardest working women in the restaurant business, is in the kitchen every night, ensuring that every fresh, made-to-order dish is cooked to perfection. And trust me, they are. Even people who consider themselves Thai-food connoisseurs will find new favorites here, such as the must-try crispy rice salad, thanks to Toi’s continued efforts to wow her regulars. A neighborhood spot through and through, it’s a sweet peek into life along Russian Hill’s Polk Street, which is a wonderful place to stroll or bar hop before or after the fact.
