This place was drastically disappointing. Three years ago, the food was exceptional, especially their seafood. So, I visited the restaurant again, but seafood pho had a lot of oil floating. I asked to servant What is these oil? He said it s from beef bone. I ordered seafood pho because I don t like fat from meat, but, ironically, there was lots of beef oil in the seafood pho.
I just have to say that, hands down, top 3 of my fav places in Richmond. Richmond is my howm town and Mekong is one of my regular water holes. Best pho (get it with the spicy sate paste) and the beer list is awesome (try the Gulden Draak if on tap). However, nothing is bad so whatever you choose, you will enjoy. The restaurant is clean, the waitstaff treat you like you are friends and, if you sit at the bar, you are sure to have a conversation with a fellow beer lover.
I’ve been living here in Richmond for the last year and three months. I believe I’ve had Pho at almost all the Vietnamese Restaurants in town. One of the Best Pho is at Mekong! There Vegetables that comes with the dish are always fresh! But of course nothing will come close to my Mom’s Pho. I also suggest trying the spring rolls for an appetizer. I’ve had other dishes but this is the best Pho in town. It’s a clean and comfortable place. I’ve had excellent service every time. I would recommend this place if you’re looking for a great bowl of Pho!
Consistantly great service and extremely tasty foods, soup's and you've got to try the appetizer sampler. It's been three years since I first visited Mekong and I dine in for lunch and dinner at least once a week-every week. Great place for a business lunch, dinner or just a casual night out. You won't catch Mekong on a bad night because the dining experience is excellent 100% of the time. Enjoy!
this is the best Food around for the price, great staff
and consistent quality for the hundreds of meals I have ate here
over the last 10 years.
Add to this they also have the best beer menu of any Asian
style restaurants in Richmond.
Someone recently suggested this restaurant to me, Believe it or not! For it's large Belgium beer menu. I am a wine drinker for the most part but like an occasional beer and love all types of Asian food, so I checked it out...
He was right the beer menu took up several pages on the menu and besides your 12 oz. beers there were also the larger 750-ml. bottles to choose from.
The bartender (who I think might have been the owner) was very funny and extremely knowledgeable about the beer...We tried some Belgium beer had some great food and left feeling satisfied with the great service as well.
Try Mekong, you�ll love it!
* p.s this place was pretty big and even had a little stage in the back of a bigger room for larger parties...
The crispy spring roll is SO good that you'll drool in anticipation of eating it. While I always order the shrimp and pork rice noodles as my main course, I don't think there's anything on the menu that's not good. Best Vietnamese in Richmond, hands down.
My husband and I love Mekong. It is clean, nice atmosphere, family yet date friendly, and the food is out of this world. We just moved to NC and we are having Mekong withdrawls. The prices are outstanding! Go there, It is fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
