Doesn't look good on the outside and the interior doesn't offer much more. Casual atmosphere. Friendly and efficient services. Food is delicious. So many fresh ingredients and thoughtful preparation. My favorite is the Thai Salad with beef. Furthest thing from a salad you can imagine. Simply delicious food at a great price. A jewel in the food desert of central... More

Went here with a group of ten people. Service was excellent and food was delicious. Doesn't look like much from the outside but the food is top notch. Flavors were balanced perfectly. We tried a little of everything (Thai and Vietnamese dishes) and they were all very good.

I invited my son and his wife for lunch today and decided to go to Mekong Cafe. Our order was crab rangoon, patia, chicken fried rice and Thai rolls! Man was it all good. You get to choose from mild, medium and hot, super hot for any of the dishes you choose. The servers are so nice and welcoming. The... More

This restaurant has the best Thai, Viet and Lao food in Springfield. Other Thai restaurants serve their food with so much heat to hide the like of flavor. Mekong is very flavorful and the service is great. Each meal is cooked to order and with great care. Highly recommend

I had driven by their sign for over a year before I convinced my wife that we should give it a try. Now it's her favorite place for Thai and Vietnamese food. The staff is always friendly and make you feel welcome. Food always comes out hot and the portion size is generous for one. We could easily share a... More

I love the food at Mekong! The pad Thai is always delicious, and I have never been dissatisfied with any menu other choice. The owners are friendly and happy to serve you. I only wish they were open on Saturday, as they are only open M-F. My family loves Mekong and eat there often:)

We just went to this restaurant despite loving Thai food for years. We are not sure how we overlooked the place. We dined in and the surroundings were a bit rustic but the service was pleasant. Not a Michelin 3 Star but tasty Thai. The also offer carry out. I would definitely recommend this place as an alternative to the... More

We have been going here for many years but have not thought to share our experience. What can I say? Great food, many choices, friendlyservice, BIG PORTIONS and budget prices. Outside is not the prettiest, but inside, it is very nice. We get the take-out for parties and its a big hit. We live on the west side and too... More

Doing errands, wanted lunch but not a burger, Mekong so much better. Big portions, fresh flavor (not full of goo) great spring rolls. The spring rolls are reason to go there all by themselves; as good as the last time I was in Ho Chi Min city.

I had lived less than 2 blocks away from this place and had no idea. That is probably a good thing for my waistline and wallet, because I would have been here most days. So far, they are my favorite place for pad thai and crab rangoon. Those are the only two things I have ordered. Little more savory rangoons... More
