Great food, slow service

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... read more

A good place to get Asian buffet lunch. They have Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese and other Asian dishes. Quick & easy!

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

The volcano duck was an incredibly wonderful entree. Lots of options with vietnamese, laotian and thai sections in the menu. A bit on the pricey side but great portions.

Initially, I was intrigued when they advertised their food as authentic laos, vietnamese, thai food. I ate there twice, and I regret that I went back the second time. I had their buffet special to go, and I was impressed by their red curry dish. I agree this was authentic, so I decided to go back there a second time... More

We typically order for pick-up; the restaurant is pleasant, on North and 60th, and service is friendly. There is a delivery option. Food is fresh and good, adequately spicy; we like spicy food and unlike the other reviewer found it way too spicy above a 2 on their 4 point scale, so I would try 1 or 2 first time.... More
