From the outside, looks run down. From the inside - still looks run down. BUT the food is excellent. Had the won ton soup. May be the best I've ever had. The pork won tons were fantastic. There were 7 at the table so we all ordered different plates to try. Everything was good! The service was good (but we... More

our 2nd visit to MEKONG -- had a great tale upstairs, they were very busy, but still great food and service- oneof our fave dishes was not as good as first time, but understandable -they were busy.

I recently went to Mekong with my colleagues to celebrate a co-worker's retirement (he loves Mekong and is a regular customer there). As a vegetarian, I knew that it was going to be difficult to find something to eat on the menu; Chinese food is not veg-friendly. I ordered veggie spring rolls as an appetizer (they were tasty) and the... More

Delivery was 30 minutes later than they said, well over an hour, and they forgot several dishes. Then they failed to answer phone despite my dialing them repeatedly, so I also got ripped from, paying for dishes we never got. Not a reliable place to order from.

Went for a late lunch - ordered several dishes. So fresh, and very authentic taste. The service was great too. Highly recommend!

As an Asian, when I want the real thing, I"ll pop next door to Jadeland or another grubby but authentic hole nearby. When I'm with the uninitiated and particular eater who knows little about real Asian fare, I take them to the Mekong. Inevitably they, like all the other non-Asians rave about the bland, tasteless and unimaginative offerings, most of... More

I've been to the Mekong for twenty years. Sadly it was seen better days. Where it was once among the better Asian dining experiences, the food has regressed while the competition has shot by it. While it remains popular and busy, I see the crowd remains largely non-Asian. Have they not learned just metres away one can easily get more... More

Mekong restaurant continues to be my favourite Asian restaurant in Ottawa - the stir fried green beans are amazing and general tao's chicken is best in ottawa

We have been to the Mekong many times and while the service has remained excellent, the food has not. The black bean beef was tasty and tender but quite salty. Ordered a chicken curry. We were told it was a red curry. This was nothing even close to a curry. It was gelatinous and tasted of chicken bouillon and nothing... More
