Definitely a do again SOON. If anyone had the time to look through my other reviews here they would see I eat a lot of oriental food! Of course that does not make me a world authority but I know good food when I taste it and this was very good. I had the bun with pork. The meat was... More

I am not a fan of pan-asian restaurants. But this restaurant is unique in having accurate representations of Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, and Korean food on their menu. Within each cuisine not all dishes are equally good. Among the Thai selections, the Drunken noodles, and Penang, Masaman and Red Curries are terrific. Not so for the the Green, and the Pad... More

I have eater here about five times. I have had a Thai chicken curry in which the quality if the meat just looked off. I didn't eat it. I have had Pad Sie Eiew several times, both with and without meat. It is always too greasy. I have had vegetarian Thai curry, and the flavor was rather one-dimensional. Not my... More

I was told 10 minutes for my order to be ready for pickup. It ended up being more like 45 minutes. The guy at the register was not friendly and no one realized they were out of what I ordered until 40 minutes in. Sorry but a free spring roll does not make up for that. Atmosphere is very underwhelming... More

I stopped in the Mekong out of curiosity last week and had the beef Pho. It was excellent, with the freshest of ingredients. The seasoning was just right, and the portion was quite large. I went back again yesterday to try a different dish, the Vietnamese Chicken soup, which was just as tasty. It was filled with rice noodles, chicken,... More

Our family enjoys comfort food that is a little different. We have been here three times in the past two months due to craving these dishes! We have tried Pad Thai, Drunken Noodles, Panang Curry, Fried Rice, and several appetizers. All was delicious! I asked the server who might have been the owner if she had a sample of Massaman... More

This place serves the best Thai and Vietnamese cuisine around. They use quality ingredients and the portions are huge (even at lunch). The prices are low and staff is friendly. The owner also runs the world food market (Oasis) next door, so he gets all of his ingredients fresh and sometimes local. Love this place!

Ethnic cuisine in Blacksburg is sadly lacking, so we were delighted to discover Cafe Mekong. Not much ambiance, but clean and attractive, with good Thai food and good complementary beers. Menu is very good and the food is authentic. The menu is not very extensive, but manages to offer a good variety for different tastes. Our children have tried and... More
