We traveled 45min to Mekong because we missed Asian food on our two week Italy trip and this place did not disappoint! The food is fresh, flavorful and prepared with care. You can tell the owner is quite passionate about the dishes his kitchen has prepared. It is not your typical pho restaurant. Expect high quality innovative food! If we... More

Based on the good review from various sites we decided to visit this place after being tired of both Japanese and Italian food. It was quite disappointed we expected at least one good dish, but in stead all dishes were bad. They were not Vietnamese at all. We have been to various places in the world and we know how... More

We went there as it was near our hotel for dinner. The restaurant looks very nice from outside and I site decor was lovely. They didn't have many drinks to offer even they were on the menu, but if you want to try Chinese or Japanese beer then perfect choice. The waitress was very helpful and explained all the dishes....

Place to be! Nice and very prepared about Vietnam's food and custom, the owner is a very kind person. Good food and the menu changes during the year so you can always taste different dishes! I really appreciate the dinner and time spent there! Price just over the tipical oriental restaurant but it worth!

Between via Appia and via Tuscolana you will find an authentic vietnamite restaurant, probably the best Asian in Roma. Nice decor, attentive service and excellent food, try the traditional Pho.

I had dinner at Mekong last night with my boyfriend. We were looking for something a little more unusual so I suggested vietnamese. The reviews on trip advisor don't do this place justice - we had a great experience both in terms of food and service. The owner is extremely attentive, he goes around to every table explaining the different... More

We shared the mixed platter to start very authentic, followed by pork stew, beef with lemon and peanut with sir fry vegetables and rice. The food was very good and the staff attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend a visit. Captured the essence of Vietnamese cuisine very well.
