“I loved this place”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Great place. Great food. Professionally prepared and pleasantly presented. The mashup of cuisines is fun and totally works. The decor is fantastic. The cost can add up quickly and you could easily spend $50 to $100 per person.

“Lavender infused cocktails”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Great place. Good food. A bit pricey as the portions were small but everything tasted fresh. At first we were seated at a table in the corner where the AC must have been blowing because it was freezing! We asked to move to another table, and the staff was very accommodating. Once we settled in, we ordered drinks. I had the lavender infused cocktail which was new and different. For dinner we shared a number of small plate appetizers and also tried a noodle dish and whole fish. The waitress was very helpful in recommending options based on our dietary guidelines. Decor was modern asian, it was a bit darker than I wanted but the candles were useful. It was very loud, granted it was busy with other patrons, but it was almost as if every sound was bouncing off the walls and they had a bit of music playing softly. Our meal for 5 people, cost close to $400 without tip.

“Father's Day surprise with the family”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

The food was excellent and a mix of Thai and Vietnamese cuisines. The service was very good considering that the place was packed. We sat at a large table with a lazy Susan device in the middle which made sharing easy. The only negative was a large picture of a Chinese pot bellied pig which was hovering over the table reminding us of his fate. I would deep six the picture.

“Excellent, Again”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We visited Khong River last week during Swim Show. Our group of three woman sat at the bar for a cocktail before dinner and were treated to a complimentary cocktail by one of the corporate executives of Khong River. He was friendly as was the adorable bartender. Two of us were sat for dinner and my friend decided to go with the cocktail "Hot & Sour" as i had tried it at the bar. What an amazing drink. Fabulous concoction. Don't miss it. The cherry foam and hot chiles in the drink are a perfect compliment. I can't wait to go back just for the cocktail. I ordered the drunken noodles with shrimp. Delicious, hot and the serving was generous. My friend had the Burmese Wraps and Cauliflower side. She was extremely happy with the choice and was perfect for a lighter meal. Our server was attentive, but, not all over us. The restaurant was busy, busy, but, the service was just right. We've been before to Khong River during Swim and will always return for the best meal of the week. Just off Lincoln Road it's away from the craziness and a terrific place to linger and enjoy this forward thinking restaurant. I wish there was one in Naples!

“The best Thai in town”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Have been many times, if you know a better Thai in Miami, let me know.
It's very very good, try the shrimp, the noodles, the wraps.
