Good dining with a large variety of choices. Need a reservation. Very popular. Shrimp dishes were excellent. Have specials for holidays. Like choices of Chinese, Japanese, or Thai dishes. We go there several times a year.

We were hard-pressed to find a vegetarian-friendly dining option in the off-season in Parksville. Mekong offered almost everything on the menu with a veggie option. My stir fry chicken was delightfully spicy, service was very good, atmosphere good too. overall recommend this place.
