Ah, the lemongrass; a highly underrated herb that surprises and delights in equal measure. Of course, no Vietnamese or Thai dish is complete without it. And it's no mistake The Lemongrass is serving the best Asian-fusion food in Blenheim!

Founded by Bu-nga Krataitong and Nuttavut Rodsienglum, their mission is to serve authentic Vietnamese and Thai cuisine that appeals to the Kiwi palate. And if you're worried that means less flavour, you couldn't be more wrong! These tantalising Eastern flavours have never tasted better than in this informal restaurant, where Blenheim's most fervent foodies will be seen most nights of the week.

And if New Zealand's sunniest town hasn't warmed your bones, their sumptuous curries will do the trick! Creamy goodness comes in the form of the coconut green curry, the peanut rama curry and the velvety satay that comes with your choice of crispy pork, chicken, beef or tofu.

For stellar cuts of meat, you're also in the right place. Combine stunning tastefulness with a touch of theatre with their sizzling pork belly and Vietnamese wok beef fillet. Alternatively, deep dive into their seafood offerings that delicately accentuate subtle flavours or their vegetarian dishes that source their 'meatiness' with crunchy cashews and decadent sauces... and a touch of lemongrass...
