Beautiful modern decor and warm atmosphere. A nice place to enjoy a meal or drinks with friends. The staff were polite and helpful. Couldn't decide what to have so ordered a few things to share. I particularly enjoyed the spare ribs and of course the Mekong cocktail! Going back soon to celebrate a friends birthday!

Yummy is to summarise my dinner experience here.
My hubby & I had a soup & a main course. Restaurant was okay with our sharing of the food and in fact, they served the soup in 2 portions. That was very thoughtful. Think we order the glass noodle with chicken & lemongrass. (sorry can't remember the exact name for it but is has coconut milk in the soup)
The main course was pork rib smoked in jasmine leaves. I think asians would love this dish. The meat was tender, yet not fatty. The accompanying sauce went well with the meat & rice.

The atmosphere here is very modern, with a hint of chinese heritage. Strongly recommend this restaurant when you are at Lucerne.

The service is fantastic. The atmosphere is great. We had a nice evening with our friends here. The choice of high quality cocktails is more than average. We had a choice of all starters and individual main courses. We didn't need a desert afterwards, other than one of the six different kinds of grappa that are offered here.

If Mekong would be a bar i would just love it. But it is a restaurant. Offering Thai cuisine. And this is were it gets a little bit strange. Everything we had was "ok" or "good". But nothing you would remember. Not hot&spicy, not exotic. For me that is not thai food, but Swiss-Thai-Food, which leads to the nice atmosphere, good service and the high prices. But it is not spicy.

The rooftop bar is worth a visit.

We've eaten here on two separate occasions, once as a couple, and once with friends visiting from abroad. The atmosphere is very cool and modern, and the staff are well presented and polite. I was impressed overall by the restaurant itself. Sadly I felt on both occasions that the food didn't quite hit the same standards. I had the Mekong curry on my first visit, and the chicken teriyaki salad on my second visit. The food looked great each time, but the taste didn't match up. Somehow the food tasted one-dimensional with no nice flavour combinations to tickle the taste-buds. My only other comment is that they messed up our drinks order once, delivering an alcoholic cocktail instead of the non-alcoholic equivalent that we ordered.

We thought we would try something different after travelling through Europe for a month and getting tired of the usual European menus. As we get amazing Asian food at home we didn't have high expectations of Asian food in Europe. The decor of this restuarant caught our eye so we gave it a go for dinner and wow! !! Amazing food! One of the best meals on our holiday. Would go back again.
