After a long day of travel we decided to "eat in". The restaurant wasn't the easiest to find but we were made very welcome on arrival. Relatively busy but we received prompt attention. The food was very good and generous quantity and appeared promptly. Dessert was also generous proportion and tasty. The bill however was a bit of a shock... More

Food was presented very well and good size portions, which was very appreciated after a long day! However, the wait staff would disappear for periods at a time, especially when it came time to pay, which was a little inconvenient.

We had a wonderful experience for Dinner - Delightful Service and Fantastic Food. We walked in without booking (on a Tuesday evening though). The food (and Cocktails!) were delicious! Large portion sizes which were totally filling - the spring rolls for starters are a must!

During my time in Lucern, I ate at Mekong. The decor of the place was really nice and welcoming. We had a variety of servers. The Asian meal was delicious. I had a coconut soup with noodles and chicken. Then for the main course had sweet and sour chicken. The dessert was panna cotta. Everything was so good and the... More

Couldn't ask for more. The food was excellent and the curry and short rib dishes were tender and full of flavor. I would absolutely recommend Mekong.

Stopped in for dinner, but I ended up leaving after the soup and what could only be called cold hot sake. The service was terrible.

Mekong has a great weekend atmosphere, normally with a dj playing some lounge music in the background. But why I come back once a month is the ribs, the best I ever had.

We came for dinner and found a nice table in the upper part of this nice restaurant. All staff was very friendly and attentive. The interior was impressive and very stylish with strong Asian influence. Food came very quick and tasted excellent. Need to return to check out the other great offerings on the menu.
