When it comes to Thai, there’s no lack of options—you have your take-out staples as well as your more formal eateries that come complete with ethnic décor. Thankfully for Nassau County diners, Lemonleaf Grill serves up the best of both.
Offering delicious fare in a casual, yet inviting setting, Lemonleaf is a staple for Hicksville diners. There’s a reason this eatery, set back in a shopping complex on South Broadway, has done so well; diners know they can consistently expect excellent fare from a varied menu, whether they’re dining in or taking out.
A recent trip to the restaurant confirmed what many already know—a trip to Lemonleaf is sure to please both the novice and experienced Thai diner. The meal started with steamed vegetable dumplings cooked to perfection and enhanced with a basil garlic dipping sauce. It was the perfect precursor to the papaya salad, featuring Thai green papaya salad mixed with string beans, tomatoes, sliced green chilies and dressed with lime juice and ground peanut. The little chili pepper on the menu next to the salad listing should not be taken lightly—the generous serving of chilies in this salad, which pairs well with the juicy papaya—will leave your water glass empty.
Another popular appetizer is the fried shrimp in noodles, which sounds exactly like what it is. The fresh deep-fried shrimp were juicy and delicious, and the crispy noodles they were wrapped in added a delightful crunch.
When it comes to entrees, staff suggest the always reliable mango chicken or pineapple curry shrimp, a rich dish with flavor enhanced by coconut milk. Another stand-out choice is the sautéed sliced beef with mushrooms, scallions and ginger, served over a bed of spinach.
The menu also features a wide variety of vegetable, noodle and seafood options, served up in large portions that won’t break your bank. And to end the night, cleanse your palate with the sweet Thai Coconut Cake.
Whether you’re looking for a weekend dinner with friends or quick take-out for busy weekdays, Lemonleaf Grill readily meets your craving for flavorful Thai cuisine. And with almost 20 years of satisfying customers, there’s a reason many call this their go-to Thai spot.
