The Pho is so famous hence I have tried once but it is not as good as mentioned. Such a normal Pho. The only famous thing is that the former president in US has visited before

The wait for service took to long with staff continually walking past without taking my order. For my main dish I ordered fried chicken and instead was given char Grilled chicken legs but not the full drumsticks, just the lower half. The spring rolls were over cooked just short of being burnt

If you are looking for ambience and a place to chat with a friend over a relaxed meal with attentive service, then this is not what you are looking for - however if you just love Pho and are happy to be squeezed in with others enjoying great cheap Pho, this is a great place to eat. I go back for the char-grilled chicken Pho every time I am in Melbourne - I love it!

Mekong has been around forever and it is always busy and popular. Highly recommend it for a cheap and yummy bowl of soup noodles.
