We visited for the first time today, even though it's fairly close to to our home. We went about 6:30pm for dinner. We both had noodle dishes. I had the N6-Lad Na with Shrimp. It was homemade thick noodles, with broccoli, shrimp with a garlic sauce. It was so good I ate the whole huge portion. I ordered it medium... More

Though a long way from downtown where I was staying I persevered long enough to find this place. I love Vietnamese food and eat it as often as I can find it on my travels. The bun here was OK, but not typical as it contained lettuce and carrots but no herbs that I could discern. Also the preferred meat... More

Decided on an impromtu lunch today, a son was home. Had been wanting to try Mekong Cafe's buffet at $8.99/person. Three of us went for lunch at about 11:30 am, wanting to bet the lunch crowd. Only a few tables were occupied, so we were able to sit anywhere. Relaxing music played in the background and the surroundings were pleasant.... More

This place opened up a number of years ago and the buffet wasn't up to snuff though other menu items were terrific. I laid off the lunch for a few years, then returned. Voila, whatever was wrong got fixed. Lots of great items for $8.95. However eating off the menu is even better. I enjoy duck and both their curry... More

One of my favorite restaurants, the basil fried rice is outstanding and I also love the yellow chicken curry with rice.

Stopped in for lunch on a Wednesday in May. The buffet had a good selection of staples including Tom Kha soup, egg rolls various curries, salads, and several entrees for $8.95. Mekong chicken with a soup and salad was also $8.95 with enough to take home for another meal. Attentive service even for the buffet crowd. Well worth a stop!

This was my second time going to this place, and I love it. Their dishes are so full of flavor. You can tell that they use fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables everything had a good texture and veggies were crisp. They have a wide variety of spiciness so anything can be tailored to your preferences. Their fresh squeezed juices were... More

First time at this little jewel. Had the lunch buffet for 8.95. A beautiful array of tasty colorful dishes. Couldn't try everything but what I had was very good. They have sauces and condiments I would like to experiment with. What a great deal on some well prepared food. Plan to return in near future. I would highly reccomend for... More
