Being the only Vietnamese show in town, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and service. Perfectly prepared authentic dishes coupled with friendly and efficient staff made for a great experience.

It seemed to be a family-run place, but my Vietnamese-speaking friend was a bit disappointed, looking for more innovation or originality. The appetizer tray was a bit heavy on fried items, but this may reflect the region. I was happy to find an alternative to steaks and burgers, and I loved my meal, a nice seafood noodle bowl with a...

What a find! I had zero expectations of this place in the middle of big box or fast food restaurants: Wendy's, Pizza Hut, Cracker Barrel for the love of God. First, the beer list: filled with Belgian beers I didn't even recognize. So good. And the food was outstanding. Fresh, well-spiced, pure. What a treat. Sandusky, I hope you know... More

Stopped in because Sandusky is filled with chain restaurants and I just refuse to eat at them. Ordered the Pho and it was some of the best I've had. Also a huge beer selection, plus the owner was there and he was a really great guy to talk with. Avoid all the crappy food in the area and give Mekong... More

I have been to this Vietnamese restaurant many times and it never fails to impress! My friend had a beef stir fry dish over rice which was the perfect mix of sweet and sour. I had beef pho which is served with fresh basil and bean sprouts along with condiments to adjust the spiciness to your liking. My son had... More

Ate here with a buddy after Cedar Point. Great selection of beers and sampled several. The food was excellent from the appetizers to the main course. Service was outstanding. Highly recommended it.

Our friend lived in Vietnam for years and knows their food. He was the one that introduced us to Mekong restaurant. On his suggestion we ordered the Pho noodle soup with beef or pork. It was wonderful and so filling. It is a must if you are in Sandusky and like Asian food.

This place is as authentic as it gets without being in Vietnam. Some of the best pho ever. Over whelming and reasonable priced beer menus. Staff is awesome. the crispy spring rolls are one of the best I've ever had (I've been to Vietnam and my aunts Vietnamese).

Was craving some pho and it was good to find this right down the road from my hotel. Solid Vietnamese cuisine!
