Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely delicious. We just loved every dish that came out. Portion sizes are generous (especially the salt and pepper calamari) and the flavors were amazing. The prices were more than reasonable and the final bill was cheaper than we expected. 4 entrees, 4 mains, drinks...and for 4 of us $200 in total. The venue is lovely in a small street surrounded by restaurants of all different cuisines. If it’s a nice night, sit outside. Your not on a main road.More

Just like the previous reviewer, our reservation was cancelled without notice, there was no RVA on their phone to advise that they’d suddenly decided to close. I finally contacted them via social media, and numerous requests to advise us of their re-opening date have been...ignored. I’ve dined there in the past but their complete inability to understand how customer service works in hospitality deters me from ever supporting them in any future endeavours.More

We had a confirmed reservation and a few hours before we arrived the restaurant just canceled the reservation without any reason. No explanation , no answer at the phone, no answer by mail. Never again!

Went to Mekong as its a regular favourite of ours. Boy has it lost its mojo. Meal was extremely disappointing and its not a cheap night out. Plenty of staff, just underwhelming food. Will not be back!

Regulary visit this restaurant and went again becasue of a new menu advertised. Lamb skewers were minsicule with poor quality fatty lamb. The prawn pancake looked promising yet was cold, the prawns were straight from the fridge. We sent it back. The duck curry was...simply a duck leg that had been reheated so many times it was like leather. The waitress Muk was inattentive, never poured the wine and inored us when we compalined about the super cold prawn pancake. Will not bother with this restauarnt again. the meals looked far superior in their cheaper cousin Viet downstairs.More

Great ambience & food. Wait staff have limited English I called the restaurant to book & left a message but no one called back. I emailed to book but no one replied. I was finally able to book via The Fork app. The most disappointing...aspect was we weren’t able to split the built. The reason: “our system doesn’t allow it” crazy excuse 🤷🏼‍♂️More

Has been one of our favorite Asian fusion places on three trips to sydney (including dinner last week so still great). Highly recommends mixed starter plate for two. Every main we have ever had there had been first rate. On west side of Centrak Station....Highly recommendMore

Overpriced over rated Nice setting, entrees not well executed or cooked. Snapper was very good but not enough choice on the menu to bring me back here.

If you ever crave for decent pho whilst in Ultimo, then Mekong will not disappoint. It’s not the best we’ve ever had, but probably the best one you can find in the area. We ordered the pancake too and found that it had a very...strong coconut taste. The pricing here is a little bit on the higher side, but makes sense due to its location.More

Entrees-mixed platter, duck pancake and satay skewers. loved all specially the scallops and the crab pancake. Duck pancake a little underwhelming. Mains-duck confit, really good; beef massaman, just ok with too many chunky undercooked veg, sauce was a bit watery ; cambodian ribs, just ok...and also with chunky uncooked veg, cauliflower chunks, undercooked sweet potato, a big wedge of pumpkin; crispy pork, just ok, meat a bit hard to chew and more onions than snow peas. Sides: fried rice, good; papaya salad, ok Over-all: Underwhelmed by the mains and the pictures had us salivating more than the real food laid on the table. The dishes did not even come close to their description. Staff: good but there was only one person taking all the orders, serving the food and clearing away with 3 tables occupied.More

Nice food but for four of us entree and mains came out 10 minutes apart and one dish was wrong. For the price expectations dishes come out all out at once and better quality. ribs I can cook better at home

Great to be able to get out and about. Had to book as spaces are limited. QR codes and all Covid practices in place. Service was friendly, quick and courteous. Food was fantastic with a variety of different tastes to enjoy. Set on three levels...with lift. Limited drinks for beer but really enjoyed the Vietnamese beer. Plenty of free cool water. We all had a great time.More

We had the banquet menu. Generally it was much of a muchness. Flavours were a little bit repetitive and there wasn’t much variety in textures. The chilli was a bit overpowering in almost everything. Service was average to poor. We came in ahead of numerous...people but they got served in no particular order, other than ahead of us. All up we were there for over two hours. This place is okay but my suggestion is go for a walk to Haymarket and save the dollars for a ferry trip Manly or a tipple at the casino.More

A brightly decorated and relaxed dining experience. The dishes are south eastern Asian. We had the mixed entree platter which was great and the seafood curry and bbq chicken as entrees with sides of papaya salad and fried rice. The chicken was nicely marinated and...tender and the seafood curry was excellent. Dishes are well priced with good sized portions. Would go back for sure.More
