    Another great experience at Mekong! Scallops and Duck Pancakes as a starter were a great choice and Pork Belly as the main finished off the meal nicely.

    Delicious food and friendly service. Burmese chicken curry was fantastic, as was the eggplant in pork floss starter. Nice to sit overlooking the bustle of Kensington street

    Great food, attentive service, convenient location. Some guests were running late so I appreciate that they allowed us to push our booking back by 30 minutes without any issue. Thanks for a great night Mekong.

    We had the mixed entree and added the eggplant with pork floss. All dishes were to die for and we will certainly be going back for more, discount or no discount!

    Mekong has everything you want in a restaurant - great decor, drinks list, service and of course food. I would happily eat there again and again.

    You advertised 30% of the a la carte menu. I made a booking with this offer. I did not receive it !!!! They said on the first 3 tables in a day get it. That was lunch time. I am very disappointed with your app. It’s the second time now that I’ve failed to get the advertised offer. This is false advertising.

    We really enjoyed our lunch at Mekong. We shared the duck pancakes, the Vietnamese salad, the Burmese chicken curry and steamed rice. Everything was flavourful and beautifully presented. Servings were generous and courses were well spaced. Service was impeccable. We will surely return.

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)
