Good dining with a large variety of choices. Need a reservation. Very popular. Shrimp dishes were excellent. Have specials for holidays. Like choices of Chinese, Japanese, or Thai dishes. We go there several times a year.

We were hard-pressed to find a vegetarian-friendly dining option in the off-season in Parksville. Mekong offered almost everything on the menu with a veggie option. My stir fry chicken was delightfully spicy, service was very good, atmosphere good too. overall recommend this place.

There are so many wonderful things on the menu that are gluten free; so nice to have choice for a change. Had the seafood crepe, and it was absolutely delicious! We were there for lunch but I think they've recently starting only opening for dinner.

Went there for lunch with friends. I have been there before and the food was good. We had spring rolls and won ton soup. The spring rolls were crisp and tasty, but the won ton was really disappointing. The broth was weak and tasteless, and...More
