Yes. There are at least 30 Vietnamese pho on 17ave. And I've tried at least 20 of them. This is one of my favourite and I've been a regular for the past 10 years. This has the cheapest pho I found. No MSG in soup. Free wifi. And multiple TVs in here. Easy parking. Strongly recommended. PS. You can order... More

This is my favourite Vietnamese place in Calgary. They make THE BEST vermicelli that has the greatest flavour! (Love the chicken curry) they have quite a variety including Vietnamese subs. It's very affordable and great service. I always look forward to a trip to Mekong!

Great food here! Family business with "Ho" as the main man. Have eaten Vietnamese across Canada and Mekong is hands down the best. We visit regularly and you can't go wrong with the pho or the bun. $7-$11 for a large bowl feeds you lunch or dinner. Can be busy at lunchtime but we have never had to wait for... More

The first Vietnamese restaurant I found in Calgary. Prices are the best in town and the food is amazing. Family run and friendly. Can be packed at lunch time as everyone around this area has found this jewel. Not a fancy establishment - you can find that elsewhere and pay double for the food. At Mekong, the food is superior...

I've been to at least 15 Vietnamese restaurants in Calgary and this place is the best. Every meal I've had here has been excellent.

What it lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in price, food quality and taste. Best salad rolls, spring rolls, noodles, soup and stir fries. Very busy at lunch time, go early but not as busy at supper. A friend of ours loves the goat hot pot. Great place to go with family and friends. We have been eating there... More

The salad rolls are my favorite but this restaurant serves huge portions for amazing prices. The staff are very friendly and the food is so good! Whenever we can we go here. The menu has a huge selection as well.

One of my favorite Vietnamese spots in Calgary. Love the lemon grass chicken. Can't beat the prices for the food you get here. The place does need to be reno'd but if your looking for a good lunch spot on 17th Ave SE this is the place.
