Ultra-Ultra Veg-Friendly Thai

Lemon Grass Thai Cafe is every Veg-lover's dream for a Thai restaurant: an enormous variety of choices and most entrees comes with your choice of protein.

Appetizers include:
Thai Spring rolls
Glazed tofu
Deep-fried tofu with peanut sauce
Crisy Sweet Potato
Tofu silver noodle soup
Hot and sour tofu soup
Coconut tofu soup

Entrees include a variety of stir-fries with vegetables and different sauces; curry dishes with veggies; fried rice or noodle plates with veggies in a variety of sauces.

Contrary to a review below, entrees are not $8, unless you get one without rice. (It's $2 extra per entree for rice). With tax (and for some people as well, a tip for the server) plan on spending about $12-13 for a single entree without an appetizer or beverage.

After reading good reviews, I decided to eat there for lunch today. It was just okay. Almost any of the main dishes can be made vegetarian by asking (and making sure no fish sauce). The egg rolls they served are not vegan (many "egg rolls" are actually without egg these days); the server said they are coated with egg whites.

I go to Lemon Grass about once to twice a month. You can't really go wrong with any of their dishes. Lunch prices are cheaper and you get a spring roll, but their dinner dishes are bigger and you're more likely to take food home with you (always a plus to have a second meal). Service is usually always prompt and courteous.

If you're vegan make sure you ask if your dish has fish sauce in it (most don't, but best to check and see). Also, if you like your food really spicy ask for it "Dennis style." They'll add more red and jalepeno peppers.

All in all, I highly suggest checking out this place. But, I wouldn't go too far out of your way for it, since there are comporable Thai food restaurants all over the valley.
