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
By far the best Asian fusion restaurant in Auckland. The mains are pretty big in proportion and enough to share for two people with a nice side. Highly recommend the prawn cakes, slow cooked lamb shoulder and Madurese goat curry.
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:-)
A great eating experience. They've done a really good job in the interior decor of this place. Big dishes to share with lots of interesting options. We had the yellow curry and fire chicken both of which were excellent. Fast and friendly service. And the cocktails were pretty good as well.
I would 100% recommend this restaurant to ANYONE. Everything about it was incredible.
1 - the actual restaurant/ decor/ ambiance/ environment is modern/ awesome/ very cool!
2 - the food, the food, the food! I could not rave any more about the food! They have the most fresh/ flavorsome foods. I would recommend the Fire Chicken to any spice lovers out there!
