Default Thai Pilsner

I have a desire to brew a pilsner with a Thai flavour. I want to drop in chillis at varying points of the boil but to make it a Thai pilsner I want to add ginger (root), lemongrass (obsessed with the smell) and fresh cilantro/coriander (stalk and leaf). I was thinking of hopping with Saaz, pils or other hops that maybe equally grassy in flavour and nose to compliment the beer.

I would stay away from adding chilli to the boil. It will release a shed load of oils which may impare the fermentation,but will deffinatley muck up your head rentention.
I would make a kind of "bouqet garni" and add it to secondary.
