Wish I had gone much earlier! It's a great place for Vietnamese food. Good prices and quick service. Can't wait to go again!

Not nearly as good as the same dish as at Fishermans Table in Bond st - but still ok if passing by.

Service was quick and efficient - short waiting time

Visited for a Sunday lunch - it's a little cafe and was virtually full of Vietnamese - great sign. Teenagers popping in for delicious bowl of pho, and families dining. The service was relaxed but attentive... Bought water to our table as soon as they saw us looking for it. Great value and and pretty authentic. Will return again

The service at Mekong Cafe is excellent. The waiters are highly attentive, but not at all intrusive. The prices are great, it is affordable for most. And the location is fantastic, just around the corner from bustling Cuba Street. The jackfruit shake has actual jackfruit in it, not just a chemical flavour.

I was disappointed, however, with the lack of Vietnamese mint, normal English mint (mint is standard fare with the Vietnamese pho), and fresh shopped chillies (also standard fare!). They also didn't sell any beers. I'd expect Vietnamese beer.

Aside from these omissions, they would receive a four star rating, but these omissions drop one.

Friendly staff and good food at affordable prices. The combination pho noodle soup was quite good and fragrant.
