I did not enjoy my meal at lemon grass. The flavor was weak at best and served room temp. I asked for a refill several times and never got one. When I asked for a lemon for our drinks ( 2 people) The waiter brought one lemon slice out. When my three year old asked him for anouther he rolled his eyes and walked away. My son wanted to take the rest of his plate home ( there is no kids meals so I ordered a full meal for him) The waiter took a good 15 min to bring a to go box. I had to get up and go over to where he was sitting and ask him again. I could understand if it was busy but he had only three tables. When it was time to pay the waiter yelled at me infront of my son and other clients about not being able to use my GROUPON> He finaly accepted the coupon but only after adding a 3 dollar surcharge to the bill. Which I paid just to be able to leave and have him stop yelling in front of my son. I will not being going there again.
I normally go every week for the same lunch item. I had 4.99 coupon and when presented was charged extra $1 for adding more basil less bell peppers. I've done this many times before and have never been charged extra. This morning I've been near the toilet as well. I will NEVER eat there again and will tell everyone not to either. I hope they go under for misrepresenting their offers and obvious health rating issues.

I'm new to the Knoxville area, and on a recommendation from some coworkers, I decided to check out this restaurant to tackle 2 cravings at once....sushi and pad thai.
The restaurant itself does not look like much from the outside, in as trip mall down from Dollar General and a closed grocery store, but never judge a book by it's cover. Inside it is spacious, and decorated as you would expect from an Asian food restaurnant.
Mind you, I was there early before the dinner rush, but the size of the parking lot in that strip mall makes me think that parking will never be a problem.
From the menu (which includes photos, for those like me who like them when making a decision about sushi, and believe me, it was a tough decision!), I selected the Lucy Roll, because the thought of deep fried sushi reminded me of recently teasing my boyfriend that he'd only try sushi if it was deep-fried...and it was AMAZING!! Crispy, tasty, with that yummy spicy orange mayo on top, this tops my list as a favorite sushi.
The pad Thai was excellent, too, as was the shrimp and vegetable tempura appetizer.
And I'm a sucker for fried bananas, having had many Filipino coworkers in California and Hawaii, and as a result I became addicted to Banana lumpia...their variation is very tasty.
All in all, it's definitely earned a place on my regular roster of restaurants, and I don't know how long I can hold off before going back for more.
For those noticing my weakness for anything fried, rest assured, the menu is extensive and the majority appears to NOT be fried.
Prices are reasonable, compared to some other Japanese/Thai/sushi restaurants I've been to over the years.
