Overall, I think the taste was not Vietnamese.... Have visited many places before for Vietnamese food and they tasted much better. Staple dish usually is Pho but the Beef Pho here tasted more like Chicken soup than beef Pho. Don't get me wrong, the restaurant food is nice and the atmosphere here is great but its catered more I think... More

Dear readers. This is our best answer to this Sir, who, clearly making sense of supporting the cause of others, ("I'm quite sure that there are other Vietnamese restaurants that tastes more authentic.") with this scripture, intends to discredit and mystify our culinary proposal. "My family and I was in Europe for 15 days and I was hungry for Vietnamese... More

I tried Mekong a few days ago, and went back today for my second time, because I really loved my first experience. I'm happy to confirm my first opinion: the place is top-notch. I had Vietnamese food in Berlin, London, and Geneva, I really appreciated it, for sometimes I get really tired of Italian food. But, as any Roman knows,... More

I was craving for some Vietnamese food after 7 days with only pasta so I had for sure high expectations after reading the reviews. Most of the reviews said the Pho was delicious and I disagree. I found the price was too high for the quality so it was not worth it.

This review doesn't represent in any way a real culinary experience in our restaurant. We express our disapproval and we consider it shameful to talk about Pho in this way. We are attacked for the only reason that we are the only Restaurant in Rome to present and propose a Pho (specifically Pho Bo Chin Hanoi) worthy of this name.... More

True vietnamite dishes, great ingredients, wonderful taste. Desserts are fabulous and started are great. I suggest deep fried oysters and pork nam. Absolutely one of the best Asian restaurant in town.

Me and my boyfriend wen there a couple of times and brought some friends along as well. It's a tiny cousy place with a very good food! Every dish I tried was always a perfection.

We traveled 45min to Mekong because we missed Asian food on our two week Italy trip and this place did not disappoint! The food is fresh, flavorful and prepared with care. You can tell the owner is quite passionate about the dishes his kitchen has prepared. It is not your typical pho restaurant. Expect high quality innovative food! If we... More

Based on the good review from various sites we decided to visit this place after being tired of both Japanese and Italian food. It was quite disappointed we expected at least one good dish, but in stead all dishes were bad. They were not Vietnamese at all. We have been to various places in the world and we know how... More

We went there as it was near our hotel for dinner. The restaurant looks very nice from outside and I site decor was lovely. They didn't have many drinks to offer even they were on the menu, but if you want to try Chinese or Japanese beer then perfect choice. The waitress was very helpful and explained all the dishes....
