    We ordered the seafood crepe which was served with an amazing sauce. Then for mains we got asian greens and clams cooked in beer.

    What a lovely place to spend the evening out with friend. The shared plate was so good and so were the mains. We were also very pleased to have a table with the view of spice alley below.

    the dishes were interesting dishes that I have not tasted before and the flavours were nice, some of the dishes with one chilli were a bit hotter than I expected. the desserts were the standout, however, they did not seem like asian flavours

    Sensational! High quality and full sensory experience. Having been to amazing restaurants in Siem Reap, Cambodia, Mekong is right up there with them. The wait staff was friendly and obliging. Have already plan to return.

    Wow! The food was amazing, everything was flavourful. I would recommend the entree platter to try a bit of everything and the Amok curry. Service was excellent, the waitress was friendly and attentive. I would definitely come back to try more of the curries!

    I was so lucky to tried this place for half price. This restaurant is just amazing, I’ve tried so many restaurants but it’s hard to say every food I ordered was good and I can finally say everything we ordered was so good and flavorful! I can tell every ingredients are so fresh and handled really well. Plus the service is really good too. The restaurant was getting busy at the time but nothing was missing or making us wait, everything were served so well by very kind waitresses! I’ll Definitely be back soon!

    This restaurant could have been on the hat list of Sydney, still wondering why its not in the list yet. A bit more attention to detail (water refilling, bit wait on food) might help in the future. Overall was a great dinner experience

    Food was good but wasn't amazing. The duck pancakes are awful compared to other Asian restaurants. Everything else was ok, reasonable serving sizes and a nice atmosphere.

About the restaurant

A journey down the Mekong.

Housed within the new ultra trendy Kensington St precinct in Chippendale, Mekong is paying homage to the flavours of south east Asia. Just imagine yourself embarking on a colourful journey down the Mekong river, sailing past gilded pagodas and rice paddies and through lush jungles. This restaurant is peaceful and refined, offering sophisticated Asian fare that is both beautiful and flavourful. Enjoy share plates and a number of beautiful desserts that are curious and complex.

Menu highlights include ‘Duck at Sunrise’: confit duck laid on red Thai curry with fresh tomato and pineapple and the ‘Spice of the omelette: crispy Lao omelette stuffed with sliced pork, morning glory and soy-chilli sauce.

The dessert menu is also delicious and the signature three-tiered dessert of rosewater lychee mousse, mango puree and meringue drops, flecked with elderflower, rose petal and raspberries is definitely worth saving room for.

Come and explore this venue and take a trip down the Mekong.

Best dish: Full Moon (steamed coconut stuffed with tiger prawn, egg, basil & coconut milk)
