Vietnamese food in Canada can sometimes be a bit mainstream. Behind this rough exterior and kitschy interior decor is this quaint little restaurant. Friendly staff. Food was very fresh. Authentic dishes on the menu that were great! Very nice to have the open kitchen so see parts of the meals being prepared. Would be happy to come back again.

After our trip to Vietnam, we have been looking for a good Vietnamese restaurant. Too bad we have had to come across the country to find this fantastic, delicious restaurant. The curry is phenomenal!! Thank you to Lee, the owner, for great service and suggestions. Yummy!!!

We have dined here 3 times, and honestly with every menu pick it just gets better and better. Quite possibly the best prawn roles I've ever had.

After reading the reviews we were expecting something exceptional- I recommend heading in expecting good Canadianized Asian food. I had a very nice Wor Wonton Soup and my partner had good sweet and sour pork. Good but nothing special. Service was a little too attentive (that may sound rediculous). Multiple quality checks, a server who refilled our tea almost after... More

We went to Mekong because of the trip advisor reviews...and they did not disappoint! We ended up going back again! We are kind of Vietnamese/Thai experts and the spring rolls are probably one of the best we've had. The first night I had Coconut Curry Salmon with black bean and hoisin sauce, served with vegetables and rice...sooo tasty I would... More

If you like won ton soup this is the place to go to. They have the best won tons I have ever eaten. I have had many different dishes from the menu and have always enjoyed every meal there. The owners and staff are very friendly and diet accommodating.

Wonderful staff and delicious food, great menu choices. Three of us were there for lunch. Service was quick, dirty plates removed for next course quickly. Staff were very friendly. We were all more then pleased with our food choices. Love it and will certainly go there often. My new favourite restaurant.
