Mekong River has sat relatively inoffensively on Woolley Street in Dickson for some time now, having taken over from an equally innocuous Vietnamese.
But they’ve got new management, a new gun chef, and appear to be making more of an effort.
This is evidenced in part by posters in the window advertising a range of $10 lunch takeaways.
The chicken Pad Thai was enormous, the noodles perfect, and the oil levels pleasingly low.
Personally I like a little more cowbell but some hot sauce sprinkled on top cured all that ailed it.
Worth another go.
(For more sub $10 lunches in Civic check the tag, if you’ve got recommendations let me know.)
