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

Honestly I was skeptical about Thai in Kennebunk but this place will earn my repeat business whenever I'm on holiday. Wasn't as spicy as NY Thai but good. I would agree that most of the dishes are more Chinese than true Thai.

Mekhong Thai is one of the very best Thai restaurants I have experienced and certainly one of the best in Maine. The location is a short walk from Dock Square in Kennebunkport and for those unfamiliar with the area is could be difficult to find - you may need to consult a GPS. Food: The food here is excellent -... More

During our most recent stay in Kennebunk, Maine we were committed to trying all new restaurants especially as it was off season and some of seafood favorites were closed for the winter. Mekhong Thai was suggested by our innkeeper and it is a winner; a new favorite. The spring rolls were delightful. It was like eating springtime. Our main courses... More

Mekhong is a required stop on every trip to Kennebunk. The food is authentic and the tables and customer satisfaction is constantly monitored by the owners. Everything on the menu is worthy of praise. Just be sure to make a reservation or get there early as it is a popular establishment with a faithful clientel.

We had some really good Thai food here. The fried rice has amazing but the green curry was just a tad too sweet. The staff are exceptionally friendly. We will be back and often!
