Takeaways in lockdown

During lockdown, a limited but excellent choice of starters, mains and sides. Handover at exactly the booked time, food stayed hot until home in its eco friendly packaging and such fresh and delicious food. Lovely staff, positive and cheerful in such difficult times for them. I look forward to eating inside again when full opening is permitted.

OMG…. Mekong is heavenly

This is pure utopia! Called in on a Wednesday night- no booking- to find it quite packed but timing was on our side & someone else’s misfortune became our gastronomical heaven. As soon as we sat we had bar tenders & waitresses taking orders & explaining everything to us. We opted for the $65 pp share menu. The whole table must opt in it’s the only condition. We ordered, the staff checked we didn’t have food allergies or dietary requirements then the fabulous Bangkok Hilton cocktails arrived. Yahoooooo was all that could be heard from the table in the corner!! Our first course arrived within a couple of minutes & that was perfectly marinated raw fish so perfect it fell apart in the mouth! With just the right amount of coconut it just left us heaving for more concoctions from the heavenly kitchen. I won’t be a spoil sport & tell all but if you love kiwi Asian fusion then this menu & this restaurant is where you need to go! They also offer lunch. The highlight has got to be the pork belly we can’t work out how it’s cooked but we surmised it probably took many months of perfection by some talented little chefs out the back there . You will enjoy about 8 or so corses with the evening $65 all share platters & all quite small but each incredible in its own way. Bu the time the last one arrives we were well & truly full. Then a mango lassi type dessert arrived just to finish us off. We had to walk up Ponsonby road window shopping to walk some of it off. Bliss! I can’t wait to get back there. Everytime I think of it my mouth salivates! Great atmosphere! Great staff all very helpful friendly & well informed.

A new discovery

This was our first time is this charming restaurant. We were greeted by friendly staff, and a place that was buzzing! The range of food & drinks was very impressive! Our waitress was very attentive and happy to explain each dish if required. The food when arrived(very quickly) was beautifully presented, and very tasty! We will be back soon!

Mekong BABY!!!

We went to Mekong Baby on Saturday night with a group to celebrate a birthday, and had a really fantastic evening! The staff are really lovely and attentive. A lot of restaurants you walk into and basically get ignored, but not here, such a warm welcome on the door... feels like you are being welcomed into someones home. The food is out of this world, flavour explosions! Desserts are sooo good too, so save some space. Apple tart was my fave! Cocktails are amazing too, good selection of craft beers. Will be back soon, and again and again!!! Thanks team!!

Always amazing!!

This is the fourth time I have been to Mekong Baby and it never fails to impress. My family and I eat out a lot, and this really is one of the only restaurants in Auckland where you get such amazing food & really great service too. It is a VERY busy place, but they still managed to make us feel special. They really do get it right here, which is I guess why they are so busy!! Thanks for an awesome night!!

Exceeds every expectation

Visited Mekong Baby, for my wife’s birthday, on the very enthusiastic recommendations of some friends, so expectations were high. From the moment we walked in the door, we knew we were in for a great night!!! The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the vibe was very energetic. We went for the Lets Eat Menu, which was described as a selection of favourites. All I can say is, every single meal blew my mind and tastebuds. The pork belly was criminally amazing, the sticky chicken wings were cooked by a genius, the sashimi was created by an angel!! I believe that we had 8 dishes- all were fricken incredible. Both my wife and I were in heaven. To top it off, the cocktails were spectacular. We were actually planning our next visit there before we left. Thank you Mekong Baby- you’ve ruined us for any other restaurants in town. No pictures supplied, as the food was too good to waste time taking photos Ps the staff are very very good.

A lovely accommodating restaurant

We stopped in for a cup of coffee and ended up staying for dinner. Beautiful Vietnamese coffee, tasty and delicious food, wonderful customer service and a warm and welcoming decor.
