i guess it's probably understandable that people who have crappy service are more likely to write a review than those who don't... but i couldn't stand the bad rap mekong was getting so i had to put my two cents in. i LOVE this place!

With trepidation, after reading negative reviews of this place and their limited delivery area, we ordered takeout because we hadn't had Vietnamese in a while and were curious as to whether they'd deliver to us.
