A great re-discovery. Its been a while since we've been to Mekong River and we'd forgotten how good the food is and how friendly the service was. The Hot and Sour soup was out of this world, delicious and full of shrimp and flavour. There were lots of vegetarian entree choices. The Spicey Ginger Tofu is worth raving about and so was the Veggie Chow Mein. Good sized portions and reasonable prices. We will be going back again soon, there are a bunch of menu items we put on a wish list of "must try items" for next time.

Trip Advisor inpired we decided to try Mekong River. Excellent food! The best were the Spring Rolls and Lettuce Wraps! The Lemongrass Chicken was very good and the Sweet & Sour Tamarind Pork was good but a little to saucy.

We were a table of 4 & ordered a couple of appetizers & several dishes to share. We ordered mussels as an appetizer- there were only 8 - so only 2 each which was a bit of a surprise & disappointing - the sauce was very good, just small portion for the price. We also shared salad rolls which were fresh & fine. We had 3 main dishes & plain rice - curry salmon specialty dish which again was good but could have had more salmon in it; a chicken & vegetables chow menu like dish which was good, and a shrimp dish in a bird nest noodles (sorry forget the name). All dishes were fine / good. Service was fine too. I like that it is a family restaurant with family working in the kitchen. Just a little pricey.

The owner is usually on site and is a great character. Fun loving yet super efficient. The food is to die for. I had Scallops Chow Mien, which was amazing and the scallops were from Digby, Nova Scotia (The best in the world) Just be careful not to order too much as the portions are very generous (Better still, order more and bag it)
