Lemongrass Thai Cuisine was recommended to us as one of the best Thai restaurants in Fairbanks (which has surprisingly many). While we liked the food at Tiparos better, Lemongrass is a much more upscale experience – and the food was very good.
We went there during what looked like the dinner rush a Monday evening in March, 2015. The place was packed and service was a little slow at first, but we didn’t care much as we had a lot of time to waste before taking our plane back home. Service during dinner, however, went very smoothly.
I played it safe and ordered my favorite Thai dish, mussaman beef ($14). It was lighter in color that I’m used to, and perhaps a little bit less intense in flavor, though it was somewhat spicy. It was very good, however. It was a large enough portion that I was able to share it with Mike (being our last night in Alaska, we didn’t want any leftovers). Mika had the pad thai ($14) as usual, and she also enjoyed it. Camila had the kid’s chicken satay ($6). The skewers were very small, but Camila thought they were very good.
In all, it was a very good dinner experience.
