This restaurant offers both Khmer (Cambodian) and Thai food, and as far as I can tell they do both very well. I've ordered the ling kreung (sp?), the Mekong spinach noodles, #66 (asparagus, coconut milk, pineapple, and your choice of meat), and other dishes. The bubble (boba) tea is very good, and don't miss the coconut ice cream. I haven't been disappointed here, and that's rare in these parts. The decor also features nice Cambodian (I think) art, and occasionally they blare noisy variety shows on the TV to add to the ethnic mom-and-pop restaurant feel.

Pros: large, authentic menu

Cons: slightly off the beaten path

Okay to be honest this place is probably as good as you will find on the East side. Three of us went. The curry my friend had was good. I, liking my food very hot, opted for a spicy seafood dish. The seafood -- mussels, shrimp and so on were quite good. The dish was spicy, although not as spicy as the authentic dish would have been. I am so tired of seeing bell peppers and celery thrown into southeast asian dishes. Yeah, yeah I know the real vegetables are probably difficult to get here, but still it is a cheap copout which denegrates the dishes. The beer was warm because the 'refrigerator wasn't working.' The service -- other than the warm beer-- was quite good.

Pros: good parking

Cons: paucity of authentic vegetables

My friends and I love this place so much that we have actually set up a 'Mekong schedule.'

It's an initimate restaurant that makes converation easy. The Pad Thai (3 stars) is possibly one of the best things I've ever eaten - for a very reasonable price. Everything else I've had has also been excellent. The service is fast and efficient, although maybe little lacking in personal warmth.

Situated in a cozy corner spot in the more residential end of Cleveland Heights, this restaurant is small---about 20 tables---and decorated simply, with white stucco walls accented by dark wood and Asian art. The menu is based on…
