Nice Change!

So excited to find this restaurant. It's a little hard to find, but if you call for directions, the staff is helpful. The food was delicious. The portions were generous. The waitstaff was more than friendly. If you're looking for food other than seafood and Italian, this is a perfect restaurant!

We have eaten here several times in the past year and have not been disappointed. The fresh rolls are excellent and quite flavorful. My wife favors the salmon in parang curry, while I usually have the drunken chicken noodle. Good portions and friendly service. Only quibble is that the dining area is quite small, so you are close to your... More

This is a good place to stop for a nice, spicy Thai meal - a good break from the lobster rolls while in Maine. The food is well prepared and not over-the-top hot, and the service is friendly.

While this restaurant is small and you are near your fellow diners, I have never had a bad meal here. I'd recommend Massaman Curry. I've had it with chicken and with tofu and just vegetables and each time it has been wonderful. I'm also hooked on their Pad Thai noodles. And the fresh Spring Rolls are unbelievable! My husband prefers... More

If you are a connoisseur of Thai food, then keep looking. If you want some ok Thai food, then this is a good place. I don't find it particularly clean. We eat there once in a while but we have never said, I want to go back there soon.

Mekhong Thai has great Thai food in a very quiet, comfortable environment. My favorite is their pad Thai (some of the best I've ever had!) and my husband can't get enough of their General Thai chicken. No matter what you order, the food is always perfectly cooked and spiced to your liking. The amazing food isn't even the best part... More

Very good Thai and we’ve had Thai all over the world (Thailand, UK, Florida, Montreal, Ottawa). The atmosphere is as you would expect from the traditional Thai restaurant. The staff are eager to please, and seem a bit anxious about making anyone wait for anything - to a point where you want to say….relax, everyone is on vacation, we’re happy... More

The Tom Kha Gai was a little different than I was accustomed to, but it was delicious. We ordered the Gang Keow Wan, the Pad Knee Mao and the Thai fried rice everything was incredibly good. The waiter was very friendly and told us all about the area. Definitely somewhere to come. More of a local restaurant not touristy.

Mekhong is a popular place, just outside of the Port area and worth the visit. We lucked out one night when we didn't have a reservation and only had to wait a few minutes for them to push a couple of tables together to seat our crew of 6 (usually they are packed and a reservation would be a good...

We've been eating at Mekhong regularly for many years. The food is consistently terrific--we've never tried anything that wasn't yummy! In recent years we've enjoyed introducing our daughter to Thai food, and Mekhong is now one if her favorite restaurants. We haven't tried the Portland location, but the food at the Wells branch is excellent as well. The restaurants are... More
