“Go for Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

This is a nice, old-fashioned type of place, a family-run business where the servers come to know your face.

Nothing fancy here, just good food. The lunch menu is a better deal than the dinner menu. If you're on a tight budget, lunch is the best time to visit Mekong.

Whatever time you come, you'll get consistently good service and delicious Oriental food.

“HANDS DOWN - Best in San Antonio!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2011

I was a bit skeptical about visiting this strip-mall restaurant and even more skeptical when I stepped inside and saw the cheesy decor, but one bite of their egg rolls made me forget the surroundings! In fact, we ordered another order of egg rolls - they were that good!
Service was quick, entrees tasty and hot! We quickly agreed this was the best Chinese we've had for a long time in San Antonio! This is definitely our choice for Chinese over many other places in the Northwest!

“Best Chinese Food in San Antonio Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2011

My family has been going to Mekong Garden for several years and they are always consistantly great! The owners know us all by name and make us feel extremely welcome. The service is great and the food is always fresh. I really recommend Mekong to anyone who enjoys good Chinese food.

We've been eating here for more than 10 years and the food is always very good and the service excellent. The prices are excellent and we've never had a bad experience. I highly recommend it!

“Outstanding food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2009

We have regularly visited Mekong Garden since moving to Helotes in 2007. The food is outstanding. Service is outstanding. If you dine in (a lot of folks get their food to go as well), you have a choice of two different soups that are quite good and they are included with the meal. The owners are always there as well and are very helpful and friendly.
