Description

One of Asia's most prolific rivers is the inspiration for a new City Restaurant. Maison Mekong - named after the Mekong river - is opened on Carter Lane, moments from St Paul's.

The new spot serves a variety of South East Asian dishes, staying true to the countries the river runs through, including Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. Drawing on the period of French rule in the 1960s, the venue combines Parisian-bistro-style interiors with a fixed lunch menu. Ingredients are largely sourced from the British Isles to create a selection of sharing plates and clay pots; think homemade mushroom dumplings, Tumeric Mekong river fish, and Hoi An claypot chicken rice.

Drinks are a mix of European and Asian flavours; with choices such as Vietnamese coffee (made using condensed milk), fresh juices and loose leaf teas. The wine list is selected weekly and focuses on natural bottles along with brands from emerging wine-producing regions.

Tasty menu. I did find the chicken in the main menu a tad too salty. Overall, very good experience and meal. Visited Maison Mekong on 2018-05-17

Went in for dinner with a colleague of mine last week and the food was fantastic. Really lovely, friendly service. The drinks were exceptional, perhaps the only good natural wine list I've seen in the City and some interesting cocktails as well. Recommend the Bagan Negroni and the pork bao.

Whilst the food was tasty, service was slow and having a bottle of diet coke dropped over me by the waiter was not a great start to lunch. Prices were expensive for what it was. Visited Maison Mekong on 2018-04-30

Went in Friday lunchtime, started out very calm with few people there, but soon realized how popular this place must be as in an instant every table was filled and the atmosphere very charged! Luckily we ordered in the calm point and no issue but new arrival couple next to us seemed a little annoyed with the wait. Waitress explained to us they had been slammed more than expected with afew bookings bringing more people than arranged (which we could see with 12 or so gentleman spilling around an 8 person table) We sympathized with that. The food is inventive and tasty, and very good value. Despite the craziness the service attention remained professional and friendly. Will come back with some of my whisky inclined friends for the liquid experience of this venue, as they are showcasing some great selections of Japanese malts which my husband and co will happily give the consumer challenge.

Dreadful. A work lunch where you have a tight timeframe does not work for this venue. It took 55mins for our lunch to appear. Visited Maison Mekong on 2018-04-26

Great new restaurant for the area. Refreshing menu - Burmese Scotch eggs, House made dumplings, good sharing plates, impressed with the Japanese whiskey selection! Coffee was highly rated by my colleague. Service was very friendly and professional, we have now returned twice.
