Have been many times to Mekong Neua and always rate it very highly - one of the best Thai Restaurants anywhere! The food is authentic and has great flavours and the amount of 'heat' is Thai hot so if you like a lot of Chilli, go for it but generally I find Medium is hot enough for me - my... More

Negatives - we ate in with friends, the orders were all over the place and came out not as we had asked and one of the mains came out 30min later? The table next door got the wrong order completely. We then ordered takeaways post that visit and they forgot to put in one of our dishes. Something has changed... More

Called in here after the All Blacks match. We were quickly seated and water provided. We ordered a mixed appetiser and Pad Thai to share. Food was quickly delivered and delicious. I washed it down with a Tiger beer. All in all a very good Thai restaurant. It was in the Entertainment Book as well so we had 25% off.... More

We wanted to try the Canon Chinese restaurant next door but were a bit put off by how dirty and untastfully presented the restaurant was so we looked around and found Mekong next door. It is not only clean, well presented, the food was great and soooo tasty. I will surly be back next time I'm in nz.

First dinner out for this trip home to Auckland from Sydney and I'm so pleased this place is still going strong! It was and is such a favourite for its northern Thai-chilli-riffic food...lame attempt at word creation there, but seriously they mean hot when they say medium. And I love it, it's tasty and reasonably priced, delicious wine, impeccable service,... More

We ended up here 1 night after the cricket at Eden park, it's just a short walk from the station. After wandering up the Main Street looking for some food and feeling pretty disappointed we finally found this place and we were happy we did. The service and the food were excellent and and after our meal the chef even... More

Went here for my birthday meal! Had seen it on trip advisor so new it had some creditable reviews. The food was delicious! We ordered fresh spring rolls to start which tasted perfect and the dipping sauce was to die for! Great for sharing as they were a decent size and at $10 for 4 it was well priced. I... More

Great food, great location, great staff. We had a very large party for a byo. The staff were great, attentive but not too pushy like usual byo restaurants to feed you and get you out. The meals came out a bit staggered which was not ideal but being a byo it wasn't a big deal. The biggest thing for me... More

I've spent some time in Thailand as well as Laos and feel I have a good understanding of the food there. This place has incredibly fresh ingredients and is prepared the traditional ways of south east Asia. Particularly the Pad Thai and Nam Tok salad.
