An absolute must if your are hungering for tasty food in a restaurant with great ambience .

This is definitely a hotspot in ponsonby road.

Food was spicy but flavorful. Drinks were very good too.

We went here for Dinner on Christmas Eve with two other families and the restaurant was packed around 8:30 pm. We had made a reservation .

Starters were amazing - Corn Fritters and Stuffed Rice Crepes deserve two thumbs up.

Dinner for a family of four would be appx $100 (including drinks ).

Service could be because the we had to keep reminding our server for food and also for water.

Just had a work lunch here and it was amazing! Our waiter as so attentive and friendly, there were 6 of us so he helped us choose how many dishes would go down well. The food came out quickly fresh and vibrant! The softshell crab, Papaya salad and Pork belly main were our favourites, so tasty with plenty of fresh herbs but they were all fantastic dishes! Cocktail list and tap larger were superb! we will definitely be returning.

Delicious food and excellent service! We especially loved the pork belly, quail eggs and sashimi. All dishes were great though. Be careful to check about spice levels as our first dish was extremely spicy and mouths were burning for about 1/2 an hr, ouch!

We dined here last month. We enjoyed the food even if it was so spicy that we couldn't taste too many flavours. The service was friendly.

I had been raving about this place since our previous visit and this time took friends. That can be a little unnerving if your friends don't share your enthusiasm. No problems with that at Mekong Baby. It was everything that I had told my friends.

A truly enjoyable night with great food, great service and a great drinks list to choose from.

I recommend a late sitting so that the table is yours for the remainder of the night.

We will be back there next February.
