Lemon Grass in New Paltz

Had a great dinner the other night at this place. We went on Saturday around 6:30 and there were only a few other tables. I tried the Thai Iced tea, which was very good but a little sweet for my taste.

We started with chicken egg rolls and the garden salad. The egg rolls were some of the best I've ever had! The filling had chicken, vegetables, and a ton of spices all ground together. Delicious!! The salad came with a peanut dressing and had just about every veggie you could think of. Lettuce, mushrooms, baby corn, bean sprouts, celery, broccoli, tomatoes, red pepper, carrots, pineapple, and more.

We shared 2 specials for our meal. One was the Pad Se Awe, which had flat rice noodles, sauteed escarole, chicken and shrimp. This was fantastic. I can't remember the other entree name, but it was almost like a salad with duck, cashews, pineapple, mushrooms, etc, in a spicy vinager dressing. This was good, but not great.

Service was attentive, bill was a decent price. All in all, we were very impressed!

    Maybe this place has improved. I went there a couple of times when it first opened didn't taste like thai, over priced and very greasy.
    I'd love to discover it has improved.

      please let me know if it has; we've been dying to find decent thai place anywhere, and last time we were there (a couple years ago), it was a very disappointing meal.

      note; haven't been to beacon yet, not sure when we'll go...
