    If you're vegetarian or vegan, make sure to get the peanut sauce instead of fish sauce with your vermicelli dish.

    As of September 2, 2013, Mekong River has been taken over by the original owner's daughter. The food is better now,the price is low just like it was in 1997,the year her family start this restaurant.

    You get what you pay for- the signature items are the best things on the menu. The cheaper items aren't as good.
