“Little Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

Mekong is one of my favorite restaurants in London. The food is delicious with loads of flavor with the staff are very helpful and friendly. eating down stairs is definitely the place to sit with loads of extra character. the part of this restaurant that wins me over is there extensive wine menu.

“Worth a look”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Mekong is a local Vietnamese restaurant that happens to be a favourite of my 13 yr old son. Booking in advance is necessary as it gets very busy. We have our mom and son nights here and the food is delicious! Service is quick when it's not too busy. The food has always been good and medium priced for portion sizes. Tables are quite close together so maybe book downstairs where it is a little more private. Tables are turned quickly so it's not a place for a long dinner if they are busy in the early evening. They do delivery to the local area and take out. Would definitely recommend. They are able to change the heat of the dishes on request and our last visit, my son and I ordered the £17/head buffet. We wanted the special fried rice instead of plain boiled rice and the hostess was very happy to accommodate this at a slight price increase. We like it very much and will continue to be regular customers.

“very very overated”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

I went to this restaurant last night and choose it by chance out of all the other places in the area as our favorite place was full. It was fairly empty when we went in but we both like Vietnamese food. It was not a good decision. Although a cute space playing nice french music the service was not. The lady that served us was quite rude one minute and then friendly the next. We ordered the £14 set 'gourmet' menus. The food was totally forgettable with no taste and the sauces very thin. They also wanted to close so just turned off the heating and the place was freezing. This is not Vietnamese food as I know it. We will not be going back. I have since read quite a few reviews of this place and am surprised that it is so popular and people like the food but I guess that just different tastes. I wondered if it had changed hands recently ?

“Very popular, great atmosphere. Book a table in advance!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

We stumbled across this place by accident. Great find!!!!! The food was lovely, lots of good options (not just vietnamese) and a really warm atmosphere. This place seemed extremely popular. At one point, people were being turned away as it was full. I recommend booking a table in advance!!
