Had a great lunch at the Mekong River Restaurant in Parkesville. The spring rolls were excellent! We also enjoyed the beef chow mein and the lemongrass chicken. The service was pleasant and efficient. I would definitely go back for another meal!

had dinner here before attending a movie in town. hadn't been here in 5 years! we don't go out often. also, the exterior doesn't encourage anyone to step in. tired and needs upgrading. also quite old inside. we used to come here years ago with our sons when it was a different restaurant. all that said, we enjoyed our meal. as we were there at 5:00, there weren't that many people. the seafood chow mien, veggie rolls, prawns, sauces etc were all tasty. impressed with the warmed plates. quick and friendly service. glad we went on the advice of a friend who is a very good cook and loves the food here.

Great restaurant with very friendly staff. My Favorite is Seafood Hot Pot, but have also had beef chow mien with crispy noodles, and the noodles comes shaped as a bowl, and all the sauce soaks into the noodles, yummy.

Mekong River is a popular place for dining out. We have eaten there numerous times. Always friendly, efficient service and fresh ingredients. Some of my favourites which I recommend are: the lettuce wrap, the Mekong mussels,the hot and sour soup, the crispy seafood chowmein, and the coconut salmon. They have both take out and in house dining. Reservations recommended as it is ver popular. The food is delicious and the prices are reasonable.

Just real good food. Fresh and tasty with all your Vietnamese faves. I thought the portions were fair and the price was reasonable given the high quality of the food. Fresh ingredients served promptly. Don't go for the decor - go for the taste.
