The Pho was okay, the soup could be richer and only a few pieces of sliced beef, chopped meat balls and tripe. The pork rice was not the broken rice (com tam) but large piece of pork chop. The green tea was terrible. The Kalbi...More

There are really no *great* restaurants in Blacksburg. Having said that, Cafe Mekong is one of our favs; we eat here on a regular basis. My sons and I love the Fish Cakes, but my wife hates them. The satay is good, as are the...More
