Manager (Current Employee) –  Benoni, ZA22 January 2019
Lemongrass Restaurant is a good place to work. While the restaurant industry in South Africa is not profitable, there is plenty opportunity to expand your skill set at Lemongrass. The owner is excellent at recognising and cultivating talent. Hours are long, but typical of the industry.
Pros
Staff discount
Cons
Long hours, limited work-life balance.

A decent small kitchen with not too much outlook on the future
Line Cook/Prep Cook/Dishwasher (Current Employee) –  Brunswick, ME2 April 2018
Lemongrass is a small restaurant owned by some good people. However, like any people, they have a tendency to stress beyond what is necessary. The culture is small and relatively tight nit. For many folks without too many other projects outside of work, this is a great place to be. The food is great, the owners are kind, and the pay is decent. The hours are pretty minimal, but enough to get by. My biggest gripe about the situation there is that, though they need more help, they are unwilling to either look for or accept any. As an individual looking for more of a flexible position where a shift can be definitely be covered, I find this to be frustrating. Given more hands to help, and the willingness to train said hands, this is a great restaurant.
Pros
Free Meals, simple work, short shifts
Cons
Low flexibility

Very nice place to work at
Server/Bartender (Current Employee) –  Warwick, RI9 October 2016
Family owned business, they give us set schedules, sometimes they would call us the last minute to work for someone who cant make it that day. All co workers are good, the language barrier between the chefs and servers are one thing to look after, its fun to learn some chinese words so that you can communicate with the chinese chefs but sometimes when it gets busy its gonna be a problem but it wont drag you down. Just as long as one uses common sense and gestures.
Pros
Free Lunch, Near my house, established restaurant
Cons
No set breaks

Productive and fun workplace in the heart of the UVA Campus
Server (Former Employee) –  Charlottesville, VA25 February 2016
Lemongrass is a relaxed, warm, sit-down stop for Vietnamese & Thai meals served fast with some vegan options too. It brings market-fresh cuisine, attentive service and a soothing ambiance that lets you concentrate on the food. The modern decor of the dining room provides a relaxing atmosphere for a casual business lunch or an informal dinner. It has a four-star rating on Yelp.com and is consistently voted one of the favorite restaurants in Charlottesville.
