Been here twice, and the cocktails, the SASHIMI and the steak were perfect. However, not as perfect as the most succulent pork belly! Wonderful place to dine, love the chic atmosphere. The bartender we had made us the yummiest yet spiciest cocktail - exactly what we asked for. So good - will def go back again.
A night here is always good if a little hectic as it is often so busy they are very focused on getting you in and out. The best thing about Mekong Baby is the quality of the food and beverages. No matter how busy the dining room is the food always looks, smells and tastes amazing. I also love the fact that you can come along throughout the day and just have a drink in the bar area or on a seat outside with a heater never too far away..
I'm always a sucker for soft shell crab and this one with tamarind is fabulous and the selection of at least 5 curries including my favourite Goat Curry gives you plenty to choose from. Yummy., Unfortunately I've never ended up having room for dessert despite my best intentions. It is a great choice for vegetarians as well
If you are looking for high quality, fresh and delicious Asian food with a great choice and plenty of new combinations to try along with classics such as green papaya salad and caramelised pork belly then Mekong Baby is for you
Highly recommend visiting this Ponsonby Road gem! The Kingfish sashimi is absolutely to-die-for as is the Crab with Betel leaves, Kaffir Lime and Chilli and the Pork Belly. The Chili and Ginger Mojito is also a must! Another great addition to Ponsonby!
Great food and service ..if you actually manage to get there. Pork belly was AMAZING!!
Just note that It is hard to book a table on short notice..or even longer notice if you are planning to go on the weekend. On the up side there are always seats near the bar that cannot be booked so if there isn't a big group of you take advantage of that:-)
