I eat here all the time!

I really enjoy eating at this restaurant. My favorites are the Bun, the Vietnamese Pork and the Drunken Noodle. My least favorite is the mild Pad Thai. If you are going to order the Pad Thai ask for medium or hotter so that you get the heated flavor. The Bun is my go to summer dish at this... read more

For a university town Blacksburg doesn't have much to choose from, so Cafe Mekong is a good choice for inexpensive food, mainly Thai. It seems popular with students from Asia, the food is OK, not very spicy but fairly authentic, and servings are generous. The Mekong theme could be made more interesting by adding more dishes from Laos, Vietnam and... More

A good choice for a tasty oriental meal served quickly. Good assortment of Vietnamese and Thai dishes. Ordered a very tasty pho beef noodle soup, summer roll and Thai fried rice. All well prepared and tasty. Choices of wine, imported and craft beers, cider. Service was prompt and courteous. Serving size very ample and takeout provided a lunch next day.... More

I went today for the first time, based on reviews here. It was pretty good, and better than most Thai restaurants I have been to. They actually prepared the food extra Thai spicy, as I like it, something that most Thai restaurants seem imcapable of doing correctly. My only complaint about the food was that the sauce for the curry... More

We have had lunch and dinner here several times. You can tell the employees care about the success of the business. The Pad Thai, curry dishes, and soups are excellent.

Had Pad Thai for lunch. Very bland. Had to use lots of hot sauce. The price is very affordable between $7 to $10. Nothing memorable. Usual thai dishes.

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
