Great Vietnamese in Rome

We shared the mixed platter to start very authentic, followed by pork stew, beef with lemon and peanut with sir fry vegetables and rice. The food was very good and the staff attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend a visit. Captured the essence of Vietnamese cuisine very well.

We went to the restaurant on a Saturday night, hoping for a table as we hadn't booked... and we weren't disappointed. The seemingly family run place had quick service, the staff were helpful and the food tasty and delicious. It was the first time we were trying vietnamese cuisine and we were happy with our choice. The food seemed a... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and I wasn't disappointed.Good non-Italian cuisine is hard to find in Rome and I found this restaurant a welcome exception. I genuinely don't know how "authentic" it was in terms of Vietnamese cuisine, having only been to Vietnam briefly and a long time ago, but in any case I found it... More

Unfortunately, the level of Asian food in Rome is not great. However, this is one of the fe places where it is pleasant. I have tasted many Vietnamese restaurants around the world - This restaurant isn't overly authentic, in my opinion. The Pho for example is not great. However some dishes are decent enough. Imperial rolls worth a try. I've... More

Dear customer. I want to thank you for the effort and for the time dedicated to review our restaurant. He writes that came few times in our restaurant and in the end I found pleasing our food. He also writes that "respect the owner for trying to raise the bar for Asian food in Rome". However, why the level of... More

In the midst of a long European trip, I was in dire need of some good Vietnamese food. Mekong is only one of three Viet restaurants in Rome. My wife and I shared an appetizer sampler that included: cha gio, goi cuon, cha ca, xoi ga... I also had pho bo Hanoi. Overall, it was a great dining experience. The... More

The service for Italian standards I assume was quite high since the various staff were busy walking around and checking up on each table. Food was presented nicely, cooked quite well too but unfortunately not for my taste buds. However in retrospect I would like to point out that this is northern fare, as a viet kieu I don't eat...

Dear Vietnamese readers of this review. Every single restaurant has its culinary offering and its own food processing. This, however, should not be and can't be an element of culinary and political discrimination, as stated in the previous paper, which we believe is artfully constructed with the obvious aim of inviting those Vietnamese, who for reason related to the history...
