This place was like entering the twilight zone of horrible food, weird atmosphere, weird staff, horrible food, I'm not picky and know my Thai food, ordered three different dishes and could not choke down any of them, oh well the beer was good.

The food was great! The meals are around 10$ but they are heaping servings. I had the pad Thai and tom kha soup and loved it! I went to Thailand last July and Mekong cafe was the best Thai food that I have had sense then. The tom kha soup brought back memories of My trip. The other Thai restaurants... More

We ordered 5 different dishes and did not like any of it. We are use to good Thai food in Hawaii and other States. This was bad. Disorganized service with 3 different people waiting on us and them not knowing what the other one had done. It was a once time thing that my grandson wanted to try, and we... More

As of 6/2014 this is a new restaurant which has not very wonderful Thai food. It isn't bad, but it just didn't WOW! us. It isn't expensive and the wait-staff were very friendly. The Pepto pink walls inside were a bit of a turn off. Lots of Parking in the rear. We probably won't return but it was worth trying.... More

This small cozy restaurant is run by a couple. The waitress is the owner and she is very friendly and helpful. The place was neat and clean and the customers all talked to her like they were regular customers. I ordered the Pho Noodle bowl. Delicious broth! The whole bowl was the combo which had shrimp, beef balls, chicken, calamari.... More

They get 1 star for the mint at the end that I rolled around and around my mouth trying to erase the taste and textures of a truly dismal meal. The veggie spring rolls were very big, almost unwieldy and loosely wrapped so that they were difficult to eat. Mostly lettuce inside with a watery, thin sweet and sour sauce... More

Eureka's dining options are spread out and somewhat limited, but the gentrification of the colorful Old Town area centered on 2nd Street that occurred a couple of decades ago has left a number of small bistros and cafes in the beautifully-restored Victorian buildings. Some of them are very good. The Mekong is very, very bad. Don't let the extensive menu... More
