Great food, Understaffed cafe

Like many of the reviews state, the food is fantastic but service is lacking. We got Pad Thai, Fried Tofu, and Chicken Sesame (could've used more chicken, but the fried rice is delicious) which were all superb. The service is not bad. Please understand the difference between bad service and... read more

I like their food, and it has a nice homey feel, but just realize the service will generally be slow. I have always seen just one server, who also does the cash register.

After visiting Thailand a few weeks ago, my husband and I have been searching for the best Thai in Salt Lake. We were very pleasantly surprised by Mekong Cafe. The Tom Ka Gai (soup) was absolutely delicious! I've been craving that soup for weeks and it was just as I had hoped- tangy, spicy and a little bit sweet. The... More

I came here because of the posts and was disappointed. Service was absolutely horrible and the food, average. There was one server for the whole restaurant and never checked on me, as I needed to spice up my meal. It took well over an hour to experience this disappointment.

I and my family have been going to this restaurant for over a decade the Best green curry anywhere. Fantastic PO Tak. Great menu. Nice atmosphere. Parking can be difficult sometimes. My only complaint is they don't like to seat rpeople after 2 p.m. For lunch.

In the Salt Lake Area, I have tried the following Thai places: Sawadee, Thai This, Chanon Thai, Ekamai Thai, Bon Appe-Thai, Thai Garden, and others. Based on my dining experience tonight, this place has better food than any of those. Tonight I tried the Green Papaya Salad, the Pad See Ew noodles, Green Chicken Curry, and Tom Yung Goong soup....

It doesn't look like much on the outside, but the food was wonderful! From the soup hot-pot which can easily feed six (with leftovers!) to the plentiful dishes. I was worried it would be too hot due to earlier reviews, so I ordered mild, which for me was a bit too mild, but extremely flavorful. The medium was just right.... More

What can I say? The food is definitely spicy. We have been going here since they 1st opened. Such a find! We have tried other Thai restaurants but I have never found one as good. Best spring rolls ever. I only wish they had a delivery service, but tis ok.
