Had a great lunch at the Mekong River Restaurant in Parkesville. The spring rolls were excellent! We also enjoyed the beef chow mein and the lemongrass chicken. The service was pleasant and efficient. I would definitely go back for another meal!

Great restaurant with very friendly staff. My Favorite is Seafood Hot Pot, but have also had beef chow mien with crispy noodles, and the noodles comes shaped as a bowl, and all the sauce soaks into the noodles, yummy.

Just real good food. Fresh and tasty with all your Vietnamese faves. I thought the portions were fair and the price was reasonable given the high quality of the food. Fresh ingredients served promptly. Don't go for the decor - go for the taste.

The lettuce wrap at Mekong is SO good - a must when you frequent the restaurant. All ingredients are fresh, vegetables crispy, flavourful and nicely presented. The staff are very knowledgeable and make one want to return to try other dishes.
