We headed over to Lemon Leaf Grill in Port Jeff Station last weekend – Saturday night to be precise. As mentioned in my last post, I was used to the Hicksville location, but since it’s a considerable distance from where I live now, we wanted to give the more local location a try. This location has only been around for about 2 years or so and it is about half the size of the Hicksville one – many of the Thai places I’ve been to are typically small spaces. Although it is much smaller than Hicksville, we didn’t feel cramped by our fellow diners, which can so ruin a dining experience.
The Pad Thai was very good – a little spicier than what I was used to, but very much what it’s supposed to taste like, and they put a slice of lime on the plate, which is traditional. I went to another Thai place recently and found their Pad Thai to be pretty bland and there was no lime to be found.
My boyfriend has to have anything with mango in it, whether we’re having Chinese or Thai. So, he ordered a dish with mango, of course, and it was also very good.
Service was prompt and as mentioned before, the price is amazing for the quality of food that you get. Also, you HAVE to get Thai Iced Tea, when you try them. It’s a creamy spicy cold tea beverage (without alcohol) and it’s just really good at this place…some places give you a tiny glass and it can be made on the bland, watered-down side. But not here – it was delicious.
Will definitely be back again. Oh and the above picture was from the Hicksville location.
