A huge selection of food ...

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... read 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

I'm Asian and I have travelled extensively in the southeast. There is nothing authentic and good about this place. If you like oily noodles and fried rice, go and visit.

Small restaurant, with a reservation recommended for weekend evenings. Delicious, authentic dishes with great service!

The Pho Bo was good. Could have spent an hour longer in the pot but still good. The rest of the dishes are standard asia food dishes with good quality ingredients. Good value for money
