Just ate at Mekong River and was floored as to how good it was. Starts with the owner and his interaction with the guests and the the other workers are very friendly as well. Once the food came, we were amazed at the presentation, generous portions and most importantly how good it tasted. Coming from the Lower Mainland, we have... More

it was a busy night and the restaurant was short a cook, however the service and the food was in no way compromised. This is a great change from the many excellent restaurants in the area that offer fish and chips

Went there for dinner and the place was packed with people enjoying the food and having fun. The service is efficient and family friendly and the choice of menu options is extensive. We had 2 vegan dishes, one seafood dish - which the waiter personalised by adding 2 oysters from another item and making a new dish, and one chicken... More

We had excellent friendly service. The food was fresh and delicious. The three of us had different dishes and we could not decide which was best. We were in there about an hour but we did not feel rushed. The waitress was friendly and the manager exceptionally so, ready to chat even though it was busy, he did not make... More

The Mekong River Vietnamese Restaurant was recommended to me by a local friend. It was worth the visit. I came at a time between lunch and dinner when the restaurant was not busy. The service was very prompt and polite. I choose the M10 "Seafood Curry," which consisted of shrimp, scallops, and salmon with vegetables in a yellow curry sauce.... More

The food is delicious. A little crowded and small so it was rather stuffy. But it was decently priced and delicious. The kids enjoyed it as well.

Ate here with friends but the next morning I was horribly ill from the food. It was spicy going down and even hotter coming out! My friend experienced similar after burns too. The wait staff were attentive but found the food to be too spicy with not much in the way of pizzaz. We had a veggie tofu rice noodle... More
