Cafe de Bangkok is a disgrace. This place is much better, especially by comparison. It could be more authentic and the menu selection wider, but it's a standard take-out joint for me and most of my friends when I'm too tired to cook a curry, myself. The spring rolls are pretty disappointing, as are most of the apps. The bun... More

Unpretentious place but a good standby for a very satisfying Asian meal. The pho is my favorite. I like the Pad Thai, too, although the "mild" version might be too mild for some. Bun and Pad Kee Mao are also tasty Portions are very good. Wish they had more vegetables -- we get the Chinese broccoli often. Pay at the... More

I've always loved Asian cuisine but had never experienced Thai until Cafe Mekong. Great service and excellent food. I will return.

Have a soup, or a curry, and a Thai Iced Tea, and things will be good. Skip the over-priced, skimpy appetizers, unless you've never tried them and are curious. Very high corkage fees for wine and beer for such an ordinary little strip-mall lunch spot.

I really enjoy eating at this restaurant. My favorites are the Bun, the Vietnamese Pork and the Drunken Noodle. My least favorite is the mild Pad Thai. If you are going to order the Pad Thai ask for medium or hotter so that you get the heated flavor. The Bun is my go to summer dish at this restaurant and... More

For a university town Blacksburg doesn't have much to choose from, so Cafe Mekong is a good choice for inexpensive food, mainly Thai. It seems popular with students from Asia, the food is OK, not very spicy but fairly authentic, and servings are generous. The Mekong theme could be made more interesting by adding more dishes from Laos, Vietnam and... More

All well prepared and tasty. Choices of wine, imported and craft beers, cider. Service was prompt and courteous. Serving size very ample and takeout provided a lunch next day.... More

I went today for the first time, based on reviews here. It was pretty good, and better than most Thai restaurants I have been to. They actually prepared the food extra Thai spicy, as I like it, something that most Thai restaurants seem imcapable of doing correctly. My only complaint about the food was that the sauce for the curry... More

We have had lunch and dinner here several times. You can tell the employees care about the success of the business. The Pad Thai, curry dishes, and soups are excellent.
