Like most BC communities outside the lower mainland, Kelowna is not known for top end Chinese food. Its very basic food at budget prices. Mekong is a very average Chinese food place at low prices. In Kelowna I recommend going to Thai or Japanese or at least a Chinese food ranked at 4 or above. Last time I visited Mekong I decided never to go back, and guess what, I dropped 5 pounds!

I'm really getting depressed about finding a good chinese food restaurant in kelowna but at least Mekong was better than the last place.
I'm going to make this quick. All the meats were really tender(chicken,prawns,beef)but no flavour from the sesame sauce or the black bean sauce, the only good part of that was they wern't salty.
The vegtables were hit and miss, some super soft, some crunchy. One nice thing was the water chestnuts and baby corn that were added. The little bowls of well made rice were a nice addition to the meal.
It was better than the last place and thats it.

we have visited this establishment several times over the last couple of years and have found the food mostly a hit,on the odd occasion not quite up to Parr, but never really bad so it depends on your expectations ,but for the most part it's pretty good

We have a group of 14 that gets together and discuss common interests, and a presentation. The folks at Mekong set it all up for us. The tasty food was served in a very timely manner. Their team provided friendly excellent service. We look forward to our return.
