Absolutely wonderful

We love Mekong and are so glad it is so popular. They have such a range of Asian dishes there is much to choose from. We prefer to eat in; we got delivery once and realized our favorite dishes from there were meant to be eaten immediately. :) Ask the waiter/waitress for a recommendation. VERY... read more

They have a good lunch buffet selection. Will definitely return! Loved their beef salad the most! Crab rangoons were fine, wonton chips were unique & good (think they drizzle honey on them), the variety of stir frys were good, but the BBQ ribs seemed dry (maybe they were probably sitting too long), and eggrolls may have been meatless and tasteless....

We stopped in at the Mekong Cafe for their lunch buffet. They seemed to have a nice selection of foods. I was so impressed! The price was $8.95-great! The service was good and everything I tasted was very good. I highly recommend this place to you. It'll give you a chance to taste some excellent Vietnamese,Laotian and Thai dishes. Put... More

We arrived for our dinner reservation at 7:30 to find a table set and ready for us. There was another large party there seated just ahead of us and several couples - plenty of room in the restaurant. We didn't get our drink orders taken until after food orders were - they would easily have sold each of us another... More

If you enjoy Asian food, this is the place to go. Thai, Laotian, Vietnamese, and Chinese food all in one place. Consistently good food and service at this family owned spot on the Wauwatosa/Milwaukee border. Eat in or take out, the food quality is excellent.

This restaurant features foods with influences from Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. The foods are delicious and well prepared, and there is a really nice variety based on the different countries and cooking styles represented. The only caution I have has nothing to do with the restaurant: The location is fine, but next door, there is a nail salon, and they... More

I hadn't been here in quite some time. We went on a day that schools were closed, so my kids could have the lunch buffet which is not available on weekends. There seemed to be more options than there were two years ago. They had done some redecorating and rearranging of the restaurant. It was pretty full. Unfortunately, the plantains... More

Mekong is great. I usually order take-out, since the atmosphere inside the restaurant is a bit drab (or at least, there are not too many people in there so it feels a bit empty). They have excellent, flavorful Thai food. The Yum Woon Sen is great, as is the Ban Cuon. I also recommend the red, green, or yellow curry.... More
