Lemon Leaf serves a long list of Thai classics to an appreciative, dedicated clientele. Airy and luminous, with big pots of plants, tall windows, and funky lamps, this spot provides a solid alternative to European cuisine for lunch or dinner. Crunchy spring rolls and traditional Thai soups reeling with flavor are essential openers to one of the noodle dishes or spicy curries, but keep an eye on the little flame symbols in the menu that denote the hotness of dishes.

Hyped as the best Thai in town- I was sadly disappointed by gooey sauces and sad communist era locale and work ethic. If you dont mind flies keeping you company while you dine it's just right. Do yourself a favor and miss this one- the sausage stand on any corner will give you much better value for your money

Another great recommendation from Fodors. You start with a dish of hot roasted cashews, and read thru a sprawling list of Thai favorites. Not the best I've had compared to the States, but it was certainly above average, and a nice break from traditional Czech fare. The green curry was super hot, and the pad thai was right on. Save room for dessert! The chocolate cake is worth every caloric bite. Also, the wine list (while small) is super inexpensive.
We had a bottle of Bordeaux for under $20 (the entire tab was under $60 -- with wine, dessert and an appy). Oh, and the service was top notch and the atmosphere was modern yet warm and inviting.
