Looks like nothing from the front but soooo worth it! Friendly staff. Efficient. Quick. Can't really go wrong with anything on the menu although I will warn you, when they say spicy they mean SPICY!!! Once you decide on a spice level (according to the...More

Excellent Viet/Thai cuisine. Authentic and great food. Get it Thai hot if you really like hot! Great atmosphere but don't expect a quick lunch during a football weekend-it'll be crowded!

During a recent visit a friend suggested Mekong for lunch and I was very impressed. I ordered curry which was delightfully spicy! I will visit again.

Located in a shopping center a little out of the way, but worth the drive. The dishes were tasty and enjoyable, and most are offered with beef, chicken, shrimp or tofu. Try the sweet potato noodles with Tofu. The staff is very friendly and will...More
