Love it. The sign is Lit Lounge, but it's a restaurant during the day. Awesome food.

Coconut lemongrass soup is amazing. Get the firepot (large size.) You won't be able to get enough of it.

Mekong River is a long-time favorite of ours, so we were very pleased to discover a Groupon for it. Service was a little slow on this particular visit (a busy Friday at lunchtime), but the staff was courteous, the food was excellent, and we had no problems redeeming the Groupon on my smartphone. We'll definitely be back again soon, though perhaps we'll try an earlier weekday or try to avoid the noontime rush.

From Our Editors

Banh mi is the quintessential Vietnamese handheld: layers of meat, crispy cucumbers, jalapeños, Vietnamese mayo, and shredded pickled carrots tucked into a sliced baguette with just a sprinkling of cilantro. This sandwich is one of the specialties at Mekong River Restaurant, where the chefs craft a menu full of authentic Vietnamese and Thai flavors. They toss bean sprouts and peanuts into bowls heaping with pad thai noodles, and stir-fry chicken with Thai chilis, jalapeños, and basil. Vietnamese soups combine noodles and bites of brisket, tripe, and shrimp. Even the desserts offer diners the flavors of Asia, with bowls of fried bananas, sticky rice, and Thai custard.
