Lemongrass Bistro Review
This well-kept secret occupies a small but upscale venue near the Kona Inn Shopping Village. The Asian-fusion menu—everything is made to order—includes Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Laotian, and Filipino. Although dishes are presented with resort flair (the proprietor is a former resort chef, and there's a second location at Queens' MarketPlace at Waikoloa Beach Resort), entrées average an afforable $14, with appetizers for $7. Best bets are the ono sashimi and the grilled marinated chicken salad with crispy wonton. This is one of the few restaurants in town open until 11 pm.
