Great food&drinks, strange boss

Went there for a strong my-thai, great spring rolls & pork ribs (incredibly tender!). the only strange thing is that the barmaid had to stop preparing my drink to serve 2 gin&tonics in a row to a strange tall, bulky guy that acted like he was the boss (left without paying, was possibly the boss!)

It is more an all Asian restaurant than Vietnamese as I could judge from the lunch menu. My Bento box had some sushi, wasabi and soy sauce but then a large "brick" of rice. Not memorable.

I've been at the Mekong during lunch and dinner. It provides you with an excellent lunch menu ( bento box; vegetarian curry etc); however, during the evening in a dim-light a la carte set up. Great and well-trained staff, at all time professional and well mannered. I'll come back

We were there on weekend. The food was not that good. I mean if you really want original Thai food! I wouldn't recommend. The music is quite loud until you have to shout to talk. Pricy but well it's in the hotel. So don't expect much.

Super place to try out Sushi and Chinese food. The sushi was super fresh and well presented. The quantity of each dish was excellent and we landed up ordering more food than what was needed. Lovely attentive staff
