An Asian co-worker of mine recommended this restaurant to me as she knows that I like trying different foods. She actually goes on her lunch break, which we work about 15 minutes away so the buffet works great for her. I had a half a day so I took my son and we went after the lunch hour rush so... More

We visited for the first time today, even though it's fairly close to to our home. We went about 6:30pm for dinner. We both had noodle dishes. I had the N6-Lad Na with Shrimp. It was homemade thick noodles, with broccoli, shrimp with a garlic sauce. It was so good I ate the whole huge portion. I ordered it medium... More

Though a long way from downtown where I was staying I persevered long enough to find this place. I love Vietnamese food and eat it as often as I can find it on my travels. The bun here was OK, but not typical as it contained lettuce and carrots but no herbs that I could discern. Also the preferred meat... More

Decided on an impromtu lunch today, a son was home. Had been wanting to try Mekong Cafe's buffet at $8.99/person. Three of us went for lunch at about 11:30 am, wanting to bet the lunch crowd. Only a few tables were occupied, so we were able to sit anywhere. Relaxing music played in the background and the surroundings were pleasant.... More

This place opened up a number of years ago and the buffet wasn't up to snuff though other menu items were terrific. I laid off the lunch for a few years, then returned. Voila, whatever was wrong got fixed. Lots of great items for $8.95. However eating off the menu is even better. I enjoy duck and both their curry... More

One of my favorite restaurants, the basil fried rice is outstanding and I also love the yellow chicken curry with rice.

Stopped in for lunch on a Wednesday in May. The buffet had a good selection of staples including Tom Kha soup, egg rolls various curries, salads, and several entrees for $8.95. Mekong chicken with a soup and salad was also $8.95 with enough to take home for another meal. Attentive service even for the buffet crowd. Well worth a stop!

This was my second time going to this place, and I love it. Their dishes are so full of flavor. You can tell that they use fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables everything had a good texture and veggies were crisp. They have a wide variety of spiciness so anything can be tailored to your preferences. Their fresh squeezed juices were... More
