Lemon Thai is not on the list of “50 Things to Do Before You Graduate”, but that’s only because you don’t have to try to get Lemon Thai take-out; it will inevitably come to you. This may be shocking news, but sometimes a college student gets hungry after 10pm. Sometimes, she gets tired of dining hall food, and sometimes, she just craves take-out. Whether it is an evening meeting, a party, or a late night in general, after the halls close Wellesley students know the number to call.
Lemon Thai is well-loved for their delivery service and excellent food. Our Student Bursar called them up to feed Pad Thai and Bangkok fried rice to her committee during a five hour meeting. So at 7:15pm, huge trays of Crab Rangoon, noodles, rice, lime wedges, and bean sprouts came to our door. As the committee formed a line for the food, we could smell the sweet but mildly spicy aroma from across the room. The Pad Thai noodles were well-cooked, possessing a melt-in-your-mouth texture and full flavors. But my favorite part was the Crab Rangoon. Perfectly stuffed with the sweet cream-cheese and crab filling, it was fried perfection. This restaurant sets a new standard of Thai cuisine at a price reasonable for any college student to enjoy.
