    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.

    Good tasting food and atmosphere was lovely. It was quiet which made it easy to have conversation. The waitress was friendly and accommodating.

    The food as always was divine. Flavours, quality, uniqueness, amazing! And the service was equally impressive. One of my favourite restaurants ????

    Very good food but very disappointed in the service. Had booked off The Fork for a set menu deal however was informed that the deal was not available when we were already seated. Would have appreciated a phone call before hand

    We went there the 2nd time after a great memorable night. Great food and service, we liked the pork ribs a lot :) Unfortunately they didn’t had all the dishes available but still very yummy.

    Once again amazing service and food at Mekong. I have been coming here for a few years and I am never disappointed. This time was the best experience at Mekong, as the service has improved to a next professional level and the food was served fresh and flavourful. I definitely will be back at Mekong and recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

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)
