We had an amazing meal... starting with sundowners 2 for price of 1 between 7 and 7 pm. We then ate inside... spring rolls, green curry, red curry and steam veg. All excellent and all amazing! Service was perfect! We could not find fault it was spot on. As drinks were purchased in happy hour it was not a bank breaker! Loved it. Would return if we lived in Salalah.

Absolutely fantastic experience for our one year anniversary dinner.

The team ensured to go the extra mile and make our experience memorable.

They designed our table and even brought us a gift and a card to celebrate our one year. Thank you for an unforgettable evening!

Asian restaurant and I love asian food :)

Amazing food and a very welcoming staffs.

We were seated on the table and there it goes the special drink from the inhouse mixologist Michael... it was amazing.

Restaurant manager sue was very lovely lady. She was engaging with all the guest and making sure if we needed anything ,very professional.

Tried the miang kham traditional thai amuse bouche.. amazing taste.
And I loved the hand washing bowl at the end of the meal.. where they bring the bowl on the table and pours the water for the guest to wash hand, now thats called the excellent SERVICE!!!

We will be back soon :)

We have been several times to the Mekong restaurant and we have never been dispappointed. It keeps its level up. Outstanding food quality, ambience and service. Sue and her stuff simply make you feel at home and will take care of any wish you might have. Mekong is by far our favourite place to dine in Salalah.
