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

I have to say that I'm not a fan of this restaurant. First of all, the atmosphere is not great. Also, I ordered garlic rice. At cafe de Bangkok, I order garlic lovers which comes with mushroom and veggies with the tofu and I get...More

This is a great place! Love the fried rice, drunken noodles, and Thai ice tea here. The spice level is adjustable and they cater to different palettes. Excellent consistency when it comes to the food. I've never found the food here "lacking". If you have...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....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.
