Ideal for… an Asian cuisine journey of Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese food
Restaurant name and location: Mekong at the Anantara Hotel on the Palm Jumeirah, Dubai
Cuisine: South East Asian (Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese)
Atmosphere: The atmosphere was very different to the typical Dubai dinner one, which was refreshing, but it was nearly full nonetheless.
What they say: Experience the vibrant culinary cultures of ­Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine at Mekong, our resort’s signature dining venue. Named after South East Asia’s legendary river, Mekong offers a journey infused with rich and flavourful discovery. Indulge in authentic eastern recipes at rickshaw-style seating and oriental tables, or reserve the discreet private dining room which is perfect for intimate celebrations.
What to order:
Dim sum (they have a wide range of fresh dumplings)
Spring rolls (vegetable fried, with a side of sweet chili)
Chicken Green curry (slightly spicy, and not too heavy)
Chicken sweet and sour (tasty, and served in half a pineapple)
Sticky rice and mango (my favorite Thai dessert!)
Service: May, our waitress was super sweet and helped us with recommendations and strived to make our meal as traditional as possible.
What I loved:
-The name Mekong, is named after a famous river in Vietnam.
-Next to each dish, there is a flag with the country that it’s from.
-As soon as you arrive, they serve ‘Muing Kham’, a traditional Thai welcome appetizer.
What I didn’t love as much:
-The restaurant is closed during the day, and only open for dinner.
-The peanut sauce of the Chicken satay was a little disappointing, I wish it was tastier and creamier.
Bill for two: AED795
