THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mekong River Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Finally, Vietnamese and Thai food is offered in an utterly charming environment. The intimate, rather hip corner nook seems more spacious thanks to a two-story ceiling and upstairs seating overlooking the main dining area. We also appreciate the reasonable prices, full flavors and fair portions. To sample the Vietnamese side, try the vermicelli bowls---especially the grilled pork version---topped with shredded carrots, sliced cucumbers, sprigs of mint and crushed peanuts. The most popular lunch and dinner entrées, however, are the Vietnamese hand-wraps with hot grilled shrimp, pork or chicken folded into cool lettuce leaves. Thai lovers will want to dive into tom yum soup, pad thai and a wide selection of homemade curries---not to mention the popular Mekong Inferno, which tosses red chili flakes and serrano peppers into its mix of meat and vegetables in a Thai garlic sauce.
