Need to Burst the Bubble that this is the best in Xishuangbanna.

Dreadful. Unbelievable. Disgusting. Thats all I can say for the treatment given my wife and I. The story: After reading all the other great reviews on this place we decided to make the trek and try it out. And it was a trek - few kms through the heat of the day - but we really wanted that... read more

Dear guest, I have read your review with sadness, followed by increasing disbelief. I have tried to puzzle your remarks together to get to a coherent story but I have found the facts that you stated in your review so far beside anything I could imagine that I took to the footage of our CCTV system since I was not...

The food is great, the owners are friendly, and the atmosphere is suburb! Two outside patios too choose from and a variety of western food and drinks on their menu, I highly suggest for any traveler passing through Jinghong to visit this great place for a bite to eat and enjoy the ambiance.

I recently relocated to Banna for work and like you always do in these situation, you look for place to buy decent coffee! A colleague told me about a restaurant called Mekong Cafe, french/chinese restaurant where you can buy really good coffee. I went there and met Gregoire the owner and Koko, the manager. Not only I bought 1 kg... More

I travel taro undo the world for business, and I'm away from home more than 10 months every year. So finding great western style food is rare. But the food, service, selection and the atmosphere at the Mekong is the best I've ever found. Friendly staff and a warm hearted owner will make your dinning experience wonderful.

The food is great (I highly recommend the melt in your mouth donkey meat) the atmosphere cool and laid back, the owner and staff very friendly and everything at a very reasonable price.

We had planned to hang out there long enough for our toddler to nap on one of the couches, but the room we picked (the one with no music) suddenly had the music cranked up after we had been there for about an hour with a kid who could not wind down :) Or maybe it was just the time... More

We visited several times during our stay as Mekong was adjacent to our hotel. Meals were available late into the evening a great place to unwind with a beer or wine. The house red by the glass was the best wine we experienced in our 35 days in China. Coco is an outstanding staff member who was always ready to... More

Better late than never! I am not a regular reviewer but couldn't fail to give this gem of a place the mention it deserves. I passed through Jinghong back in later November and called into the Mekong Café in order to plan day trips/guides etc. All the staff (between them representing most if not all of the local ethnic minority...
