Mekong is a very cute Vietnamese resturant. It is not far from SLU and it has very tasty spring rolls. When I went I decided to try the Tofu in Red Curry and I loved it. It had great bold flavor at a reasonable price.

Whenever I want to feel I'm in a cosmopolitan locale, Grand South Grand's own Mekong Restaurant has never failed. With their disciplined and gracious multinational staff at the helm, I have always enjoyed very good food, good service, and pleasant atmosphere. The Jade Room/smoking section at the back has an unusual foreign flavor, lit darkly and housing computers for online surfing, a bar for cocktails, it's a quiet and easy atmosphere I've often enjoyed with a glass of plum wine, a newspaper, and dinner (it is, perhaps, more casual than the beautifully lit and elegant front.). I enjoy best the summer outdoor seating, the iced coffee, and traditional egg rolls or vegetarian spring rolls, lotus root salad. Another favorite, sometimes are the roast chicken sandwiches on toasted rolls or the beef stew with egg noodles (the beef is excellent and tender, the broth invigorating). Feel free to ask your wait staff to suggest appropriate condiments for the Viet Namese foods you order. I highly recommend the whole pan fried fish; it is Beautifully served, head and tail still attached, light, crispy, golden brown -- call ahead to assure availability.

We are new to the area and decided to go to Mekong based on the reviews on this site. The service and ambience were fine and the price reasonable but the food was poor and the menu selection is pretty slim. The chicken with red chili sauce was spicy but otherwise flavorless - kinda like pouring hot sauce on rice. The shrimp vegetable stir fry was simply bland. While at some restaurants you keep eating even when you're full because it is so good. While at Mekong I actually stopped eating despite still being hungry. It was that bad.

Pros: Inexpensive, Clean, Friendly Service

Cons: Unappetizing, Sparse Menu

The Scene
Like Vietnam, the restaurant is long and narrow, and there's a clear division between the old part, which is nicely decorated, and the back, which looks like it used to be a Denny's. Head toward the back of the…
