Visited on a family holiday. Food was excellent and staff very friendly. Great atmosphere in the evening created by a live DJ (don't worry music not too loud)!

The food was amazing for all of us and presented very well, especially the deserts. The room is tastefully decorated but the music was much too loud for pleasant conversation. They have a DJ whose worth is apparently measured by the volume. Thus, the music detracted from the experience rather than adding to it. They did turn it down when... More

Le cadre très sympa avec un DJ music lounge. Le service moyen : serveuse qui confond un plat avec un cocktail et qui oublie une boisson. La cuisine : la proportion sont importantes mais pas de vrai saveur asiatique (exception les Springs rolls). La soupe vietnamienne, le poulet takoyaki et le poulet curry (green curry) n'avaient aucune saveur asiatique. Very... More

The food is delicious. The staff very friendly and professionals. The desserts are to die for. Very nice deco could be a bit brighter inside.

The atmosphere is great and the food is really tasty. Only the music is sometimes quite loud and not really fitting the surrounding. However, great place to try out regardless of wheter you're a tourist or a local!

First and foremost, we were warned things in Switzerland cost a lot more than everywhere else. So whatever you think is avergae, probably double it and you won't be shocked then. Moving on, we went fairly late (for us) for dinner to the Mekong and we're amazed. We've had a lot of Asian styled food before and this is one... More

I have been to this place several times but was never impressed with the food. It is a pity for such a nice location and the beautiful ambiance. The price is very high on both food and drink.

First floor of the Astoria Hotel. Decent atmosphere and pleasant service. Menu seemed limited but enough to please, and the food was well-prepared. Convenient if you're a guest of the hotel but not a dining destination. Plan on a minimum of $50 CHF per person. Better and less expensive alternatives in Old Town just three blocks north.
