Sometimes Mekong Neua staff will astound you with their great service and other times you'll be tempted to help yourself to drinks from the bar and to pop your head into the kitchen to find out where your food is. The food itself is however consistently good. Both the food menu and the wine list are reasonably priced. So, if... More

We were a group of 12 and sadly our experience was a mixed bag. The shared entrees arrived intermittently and the soup had to be asked for, as it appeared to have been forgotten. The mains were an even worse drama - rice arrived up to 10 minutes, maybe even more, before the meals arrived. The meals arrived haphazardly and... More

Arrived as the first dinner for the evening - bit off-putting in a large restaurant but wasn't for long. Waiter struggled with English when questioned over menu items so a waitress took over which was all fine. Meal was great - full of flavour and fresh. Bit limited with Beer offerings but its a Thai Restaurant, not a Pub. Once... More

Have been many times to Mekong Neua and always rate it very highly - one of the best Thai Restaurants anywhere! The food is authentic and has great flavours and the amount of 'heat' is Thai hot so if you like a lot of Chilli, go for it but generally I find Medium is hot enough for me - my... More

Negatives - we ate in with friends, the orders were all over the place and came out not as we had asked and one of the mains came out 30min later? The table next door got the wrong order completely. We then ordered takeaways post that visit and they forgot to put in one of our dishes. Something has changed... More

Called in here after the All Blacks match. We were quickly seated and water provided. We ordered a mixed appetiser and Pad Thai to share. Food was quickly delivered and delicious. I washed it down with a Tiger beer. All in all a very good Thai restaurant. It was in the Entertainment Book as well so we had 25% off.... More

We wanted to try the Canon Chinese restaurant next door but were a bit put off by how dirty and untastfully presented the restaurant was so we looked around and found Mekong next door. It is not only clean, well presented, the food was great and soooo tasty. I will surly be back next time I'm in nz.

First dinner out for this trip home to Auckland from Sydney and I'm so pleased this place is still going strong! It was and is such a favourite for its northern Thai-chilli-riffic food...lame attempt at word creation there, but seriously they mean hot when they say medium. And I love it, it's tasty and reasonably priced, delicious wine, impeccable service,... More

We ended up here 1 night after the cricket at Eden park, it's just a short walk from the station. After wandering up the Main Street looking for some food and feeling pretty disappointed we finally found this place and we were happy we did. The service and the food were excellent and and after our meal the chef even... More
