If you love pork belly, and who doesn’t, then Mekong has the best I have ever had! Worth the visit just for that, delicious and full of flavour. We also had the crab, could have been a little crisper but still good, too small to...More

I think of us as the customer a restaurant would like to have. Besides dinner, we usually order cocktails and a good bottle of wine. We did just that at our 6:15 dinner reservation, where we had great service from the barman, but were met...More

In short, an incredible infusion of Asian food, great tastes and textures. The food is very flavoursome and my favourite dish, sirloin steak, is the best steak I’ve had in any restaurant. Totally recommend this restaurant.

Took my wife for a special night out to Mekong Baby. We had made a booking. Had the Balinese Chicken which was sadly undercooked and when made this aware to management they were not interested, basically it was left as my problem. Not impressed.

We are fans of South East Asian food. We have visited Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. The food at Mekong Baby bears little resemblance to what we expected, it is very heavy food whereas the real McCoy is light and very fresh . The service is...More
