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

Dear Readers. As you read this review, we remain decidedly incredulous, doubtful and perplexed . We immediately wondered if this lady had never really come to our restaurant , because undoubtedly, something in what she writes ninth square. If one is willing to spend about € 50 for a taxi there and back, to come to Piazza Venezia in Via... 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...

So the story goes, my friend and I had been travelling throughout Europe and hadn't had Asian food for a good 10 days. Like the reviewer below, we're both from Vancouver and have had plenty of authentic and inauthentic Vietnamese food, but this place takes it to a whole new level. We ordered four items: a Mango Chicken Salad, Banh... More

I travelled to this restaurant after reading great reviews. Being from Houston, TX and used to eating authentic Vietnamese cuisine, the food we ate left us a bit disappointed. I am a vegetarian and came with two carnivores, we tried the vegetarian spring rolls, tofu with spicy sauce, and mixed vegetables with tofu. The carnivores shared a beef pho and... More

I'm an American living in Rome, and a frequent customer of Restaurant Mekong, and I can't express how happy I've been to have a place like this in my neighborhood. Even if I didn't live nearby, I would still come here often. In more than a year of eating here, I've never had a dish I didn't like. The people... More
