If you are a fan of Asian cuisine, I'd recommend at least giving this place a shot. They have a decent happy hour menu. Nothing spectacular about this place, but the food is good and cheap. Would definitely return.

The food was fine. Service was fine. It was not a bad experience, but I probably would not go back or recommend. It was rather bland. I don't know if I would consider this "cheap". It seems to be average price for Asian food. There was some kind of event going on in the "party room" so it was really... More

I had to drop family off at the Portland International Airport and I was looking for a great place to grab a bite to eat. This restaurant was very close to the airport, just off of 82nd, but outside of the Cascade Station area. When I first entered the establishment I noticed there were only a few other tables being...

Drove by this one day and noticed their sign. Friend was visiting, had visited Cambodia and wanted to give this a try. We all enjoyed the food. I had the "Cha Kreung", Cambodian stir fry, with tofu. I was perfectly spicy, which is a real art, and I thought it was just delicious. Also, got the beef skewers and the... More

My Mom, niece & I went to the Christmas Festival of Lights; the World's Largest Choral Festival. We stayed an hour and a half, got hungry and went looking for a good place to eat. This place has Cambodian, Thai, & Vietnamese Food. It was like a converted warehouse inside; I wasn't sure what to expect. We looked at a... More

I came here for lunch, and there is only 3 other people here. That says a lot about a place. I am the forth one in here and the service is bad. It took her forever to get my drinks and food order. There are only 2 tables. Imagine if this place was packed for lunch. Maybe other people have... More

After a long night in Portland, we found ourselves looking for food. Lucky enough, Mekong Bistro was open after 1AM. The staff was very helpful and charming. Mekong offered a full bar and even has a banquet room. The food could have been better, but we couldn't complain. The restaurant is a good home styled Cambodian place, for someone's late... More

This Asian eatery is hidden as you drive past it on the highway, must be entered from side street so please, look for it!! Very pretty place, clean, lots of room and private dining space for groups. The food is wonderful, good selection, well made, flavorful! The pad Thai I had was luscious! My sister, who is vegan, was easily... More

I was excited to finally find a Cambodian restaurant. I really did not know what to expect. I went with my family around 7:00 on a week night. We were seated immediately. There were a few other people there besides my family. Besides Cambodian dishes, there are some Laotian and Thai dishes. I ordered the angel wings and my father... More

Mekong Bistro is a great asset to the community. We have so many Thai options, its nice to have something a little different. The food is very similar to Thai cuisine - but definitely different. I'd say there is a greater use of vinegars and bitter flavors than in US Thai... this is not unpleasant at all & just adds... More
