“Great option”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Great food, good pricing. Booked on a very busy night (Were actually told at booking time that they were very busy and could just squeeze us in) service was slow and we had to go to the counter to get our own drinks but being out with a group we didnt care and we just assumed they picked that we were happy with this as other tables (eg couples) were getting attended to OK. Food was great, My wife goes to all other Thai resturants in PMQ regularly and claims this is the best food wise. great location as well. If some time can be put in on the service and staff training will be somewhere that cant be faulted. Would def go back

“Quality all around”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

Authentic Thai food prepared with quality ingredients and served with a smile. I went twice for dinner there while on a business trip to Port. The second time I took 5 of my colleagues as well. The food and the service was nothing but special.

“View, food and service all superb”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

Two friends, my husband and myself ate at the Mekong a week ago. We did not have a reservation but were able to get a table with a good view ( I think all of the tables actually have a good view) over the river. The folding glass doors can be opened so that you feel as though you are sitting outside, whilst still being inside. The owner obligingly closed one section of these doors when some patrons started to feel too cold.

The food was superb. Fresh ingredients and not overburdened with sauce, allowing the flavours and spice of Thai food to seduce the taste buds. We did not think the spice or chilli overly hot. The house wine was reasonably priced and also very enjoyable. The service was good with the owner personally checking that we were happy with our food and service two or three times whilst we were there. In all, one of the most enjoyable Thai meals we have ever eaten - and we have had many. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

“Service with a smile ”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

Yes it's not sea food that I ordered but slow cooked lamb massaman with plain rice. But I tell you, they know how to cook and present authentic Thai cuisine. The owner tells me that they make effort to use quality produce and that shows.Very impressed with food and service. What else do you want?
