Closest to the real thing so far!

After my first encounter with Phó (the beef noodle soup) on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City, i wonder if i ever found one in Germany. There are so many Asian restaurants owned by Vietnamese around this area anyway. But no, they tend to offer full range of South-East Asian food. So this restaurant... read more

My husband and I went to this restaurant last week on Thursday and had great service with some delicious food so we decided to go again on Tuesday of this week. When we got there, they were still closed since it was only 5:20 so we went for a walk close to the university. We returned once we knew it... More

Never cared much for duck. Found it OK I suppose.... I try not to get too excited thinking about it but this is one of the most outstanding dishes I've ever eaten. 99 on the menu being the best. The Mekong are duck roasting masters. I would give my right arm to know their secret recipe. 9 trips to Erlangen... More

I loved the vegetarian food, they served. The place itself was average, but service and food was very good. A nice place to eat in Erlangen.

Setting: one of my Colleagues said, let's it Thai tonight. It turned out to be Vietnamese. Looking at the kitschy decor it could have also been Chinese. Anyway ... It looks like a German restaurant reconverted into a Vietnamese style restaurant. Very narrow seating and you have to reserve. We got the last table without reservation Food: Huge menu book... More

Atmosphere is simple but nice. Staff is friendly. Restaurant seems to be often full on w-e. Menu had many choices and price is attractive. We ordered duck. Everything seems to come with a bowl of rice. Food was very good.

This is a busy restaurant and they look after their locals. As tourists they completely ignored us - waited 15 mins to give get a menu and another 15 minutes to have our order taken. Food is Ok but nothing special. If in the country why not try something authentic and local.

I am not an expert in Vietnamese food and don't usually like it very much. I normally prefer Thai or Chinese food and have lived many years in Asia. But being curious due to the other positive reviews I have tried and did really like the food in this restaurant. I had beef rice noodle soup and vegetable curry.

I was there with a friend. The place have plenty ogf dishes to chose from. Each of us got a sour sweet soup, that was just ok. But the main dish was excelent. Beef well made and the veggie mix of the dish was good. I think for the price, around 10eur, the dish is rather small. But if you... More

A friend took me here for dinner. I'm not generally a fan of Vietnamese food, but I will definitely go back to Mekong! Lots of choices on the menu, the food was excellent, and the service was very fast! Servers were very friendly and helpful. Normally I prefer Thai food, but the next time I'm in Erlangen, I'll skip Thai... More
