I have been coming here for a long time. It's a family run Vietnamese restaurant located in the heart of downtown Kingston. Great quality food. Large, spacious restaurant. I'd recommend the number 1 as an appetizer and the number 14b as an entree. Prices are very reasonable.

We really enjoy the food at Mekong. It is authentic Vietnamese food. Serving sizes are huge. We leave feeling as though we have eaten a good healthy meal.

This restaurant isn't actually bad - it just isn't on par with some other Vietnamese places. There are competitors nearby in Kingston that outshine it in quality and service.

We were in town for the weekend and had a craving for Vietnamese. This restaurant was recommended on Trip Advisor...of course. Friendly and fast service. Tasty food. Decent prices. The passion fruit bubble tea with magic balls was delicious on such a hot day. We had our usual vermicelli with beef, shrimp, and spring rolls...yummy! I love Trip Advisor; I... More

This place was recommended was a local so we visited for lunch. The service staff were very polite. The dishes come in sizes so you can have a larger portion if required but after having the normal one there isn't any need! Food was very fresh and freshly made, full of flavor and very good value.

I first went to Mekong in 2010, I was new to Kingston and was looking for a good pho/noodle place. Needless to say I became a regular. A few years ago I moved out of downtown to the west end and hadn't been back since I moved. I was downtown today and decided to head to mekong again. I order... More

Been going here for 4 years with my boyfriend and always leave with a full belly and a smile. It's also a great place to bring family when they are visiting Kingston. The family who owns it are very sweet and always provide us with excellent service. I highly recommend the Beef pho (their pho is to die for) and... More

When I was first in Mekong a couple of years ago I was unable to write a glowing review because, while the Thai food was delicious, the service was very slow and decidedly poor. This I figured was due mainly to the decorating and renovations that were going on at the time plus a small child who was dashing about... More

I was asked where I wanted to go for lunch for my birthday and I have been looking forward to it for 2 weeks:) the day finally came and lunch was fantastic as always. Service here is outstanding and my number 9 soup was delicious as always. The broth is phenomenal. The spring rolls are the best in the city,... More
