Arrived at first time last 3 years , always happy to find the place again with that excellent couple of owner . Food excellent .... difficult to find something which is not home made ... Greg will advice you on almost all the best things to do , best place to visit all around there . The staff is friendly and make you easy to communicate for nochinese speakers like me . Thank you Mekong Café for that unique place ... also a good departure for trekkings ... They also provide a 4WD to reach some tea plantations , Hakka Villages , Poteries factory , lake side ...

This place you should not miss once you have arrived in Jinghong.
It will make you want to stay or come back.
Coffee is great, food is delicious and the staff is always friendly.

Not a bad place. The food wasn't very good. The people were friendly, but the owner was pretty annoying (he seemed to be mainly interested in hearing his own stories)

We met the owner of the Mekong Cafe by accident at the airport on arrival at Jinghong. He was kind enough to drive us to town and give us lots of advice on the way.

The cafe was great. We were always given a warm welcome and the food was fantastic. We can particularly recommend the Dai lemon fish. The menu was extensive and reasonably priced.

This must be THE place to go to in Jinghong for good food, drink and helpful travel information.

This cafe is great! After several days in China it was a huge relief to find a place where the menu is in English! The food is fantastic, the coconut chicken was my favourite. Greg is a great storyteller, very entertaining. The staff are all very friendly and helpfull. I got the girls to write several useful phrases like "bus station" etc in Mandarin text which made getting around much easier. The wifi was much faster than in our hotel as well. We used the Mekong Cafe as our base while in Jinghong.
