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...

The restaurant is cozy and elegant. The Vietnamese food is diverse with good 'nuoc mam' and vietnamese sauces and ingredients. Although the food needs to be more similar vietnamese taste, it is a nice start to understand Vietnamese cuisine. The owner is Italian but had visited Vietnam to learn how to cook and imported good ingredients. Good place in overall.

FINALLY! I have finally found a great restaurant with excellent food! The service was also excellent and particularly appreciated were the explanations and recommendations made by the owner. The owner has a great sense for detail, and even asked us what level of spicy we could with. All which enhanced the whole experience! All I need now is to find... More

I've always been in this place for several times and I will always come back and eat here. I'm not honestly expert about Vietnamese cuisine but all I can say is, they really served an appetizing food. The untiring owner gave us always an explanation about the food and of how is the way to eat it.The wine list has... More

I was at the restaurant tonight celebrating festa delle donne with other friends in a group of twenty, mostly women. This is my first time over Mekong, and surely it is the last time. The owner treated us rudely, talking to us with a VERY LOUD VOICE, while showing NO respect to women at all. We were SUGGESTED NOT TO... More

Dear Readers. The Lady speaks of respect. Respect is a broad concept that goes by the respect for people, women or men who are, for the work that these people perform. The Lady deliberately omits to say that the group of 20 people was as agreements between the parties present at the restaurant for dinner at 7 pm. Ms. Peggy... More

Who would've thought that one of my favorite meals of my life would take place in Rome? I was beginning to develop a headcold when we found Mekong, and I figured that garlic/ginger would only be good for my immune system. I ordered the 7 course vegetarian tasting menu - which included spring rolls, vegetable balls, a type of rice... More

I didn't really expect this place to blow me away after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. However, after living in the countryside outside of Rome for several months, I was craving something other than pizza and pasta and decided to go to Mekong with a friend. Visually, the place is clean and well-organized. The service is good for Italian standards,... More

Dear readers. This review was written in continuation with a precedent published. But the representation of selected dishes is actually confusing and often false. For example, we do not propose any vegetable dish caramelized; and as regards the fudge sauce that has a name Nuoc Mau, this is produced directly in Vietnam and doesn' t undergo any modification on our...
