We have dined in Mekong few times and I have always wanted to write a review but never had a chance until now. All the staff are very attentive, polite and accommodating....and of course the food is amazingly delicious. Am always sharing my good experience in Mekong to all my friends and here in tripadvisor :-) super!!!

Dear Marilen L,

Thank you for the feedback following your dining experience in June.

Chef Atita has is currently exploring some new dish options one of which is a signature coconut ice cream dessert. Well worth trying on your next visit.

We will look to start our new menu starting from the Eid period.

The Team and I look forward to welcoming you back more often in the coming months.

Regards

Graeme

What makes the restaurant so memorable was the fact that the occasion that night was our farewell dinner. Located quite further from the entrance of Palm Jumeirah did not deter people from visiting. The food was delicious coupled with fast service fresh from the oven. Although we went there during the summer end of June 2014 however the sea breeze made a difference. I smiled when my friends turned their flashlight in their mobile on as the lightning was poor.

Dear Purn0m0,

Thank you for the feedback following your dining experience in June.

It's always nice when people take the time to highlight on the food quality as it recognizes the experience was worthwhile.

In terms of lights we do like to keep the levels low so as to create Oriental Mystique. We do provide small torches for the menus should guests require.

Disappointed! Lighting poor. My husband faced a brick wall all night and food was not what we expected. Requested gluten free options limited.

Dear Lisa L,

Thank you for the feedback following your dining experience in Mekong.

It was disappointing to read that you did not enjoy your dining experience.

In regards to gluten free dishes we are as accommodating as the style of food allows. Chef Atita will always go out of the way to accommodate guest preferences.

Sadly lot of the sauce elements sadly do contain gluten in Asian cooking and thus this does pose some restrictions.

In terms of the lighting in the restaurant I will review the levels to ensure that the balance is right from a dining perspective.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback.

Regards

Graeme

Serving Thai , Vietnamese and Chinese there is a great selection of dishes
We were a group of eight so ordered a varied selection of starters and mains
Everything was excellent and in particular the soft shell crab accompanied by a delicious Papaya salad . The Thai green curry was the best I've ever tasted absolutely delicious and the Belly Pork was to die for !!
Mekong was more or less full of guests enjoying the lively atmosphere and excellent food
