Small restaurant, building appearance from outside does not represent the quality of the food served. Simple interior. Live about an hour away and make a point to visit every 5 weeks or so. If closer-would go much more often. Vegetables are fresh, rice noodles homemade, no heavy sauces, they provide extra vegetables on all dishes upon request. Eat my entrée... More

This is a very modest looking restaurant that has great Southeast Asian food. I had a ginger stir fry that was done to perfection. A very generous serving with loads of fresh veggies (red and yellow peppers, zucchini, onions, etc.) I had chicken but there were options of pork, beef and shrimp. There is an extensive menu and I suspect... More

Pho Mekong is an efficient and dependable place to meet friends and eat. The service is matter-of-fact and cordial. The ambiance is basic. And, the food is very good. First off, there is no (or little) obvious signage, so it isn't obvious to identify from the street. Parking is abundant. Once inside, the staff is friendly and expeditious. Don't hesitate... More

The Pho was pretty good. The size was quite large comparing to other Pho restaurants. The waitress was super friendly. Will go back if go to Utica again.

If you are local or in town cant go wrong with this place. The building is not that appealing but please do not judge book by its cover, the food is phenomenal.

If Vietnamese comfort food is what you're looking for, you'll find it here. Outstanding personable and prompt service. Quality noodle soups and dishes. Very relaxed atmosphere. Priced right for good value. In & out at lunch time in about a half hour. I will certainly return.

This restaurant serves authentic and delicious Vietnamese food. Excellent for take out or to dine in. The atmosphere is very casual but also quiet, and the staff is friendly. Not a fancy place by any means, but the food is high quality.

I have been eating at Pho Mekong for 10 years now. No questions asked, best authentic Asian cuisine in Utica. Their soups are amazing and a super value. A large variety of Vietnamese, Thai and Cambodian dishes. Staff are always friendly and courteous. There is simply not enough space to write about all the positives!

I was feeling under the weather so while my co workers went out to eat, I ordered take out and came here for the pho. It was surprising tasty and good. I also ordered the spring rolls and were given 2 summer rolls. In NYC, spring rolls are the small ones that are fried, not the ones with the shrimp... More
