Thought Iíd already rated this. They work hard and succeed as making themselves a go-to beer place for Richmond. Great selection and decent prices. Physical ambiance is very basic, but it seems to have good energy. Owner takes to a bit of moderate celebrity and works it well. Servers are very efficient and can handle the mass confusion of a table of drinkers ordering helter-skelter. Nothing to complain about the food. Good for bar, groups, casual night out.

Visited for a late lunch, mid-afternoon on New Yearís Eve and was surprised at the relatively sizeable crowd. Quirky joint -- the feel of your average Asian restaurant, but festooned with breweriana. They had a rock-solid lineup of 12 or so drafts, including a Hardywood Stout run thru a randall with peppermint canes. Other than the one local offering, the selection was decidedly Belgian. I didnít look at the bottle list too hard, but it looked like it had a similar slant. We dined on some yummy food and had a great time overall. The beer was actually a nice complement to the spicy Vietnamese cuisine.

Any beer lovers, if youíre in VA. Have to give this place a visit. Was taken here by a co worker. I was BLOWN, SPEECHLESS. Never try soooo many beers in 1 nite. I was having a great time. Hint ( best beer experience is seating at the BAR) My co worker introduced me to a beer expert name An Mekong. He keep bringing us beers to taste and tell us stories of belgium trip. Food was awesome. I love Rocket Shrimp and clay pot fish. Service by An was outstanding. Best beer place so far. looking forward to next visit :))))

Itís pretty much one of the greatest places on earth if you like Belgian beer. rom standards like Chouffe and Chimay and Gouden Carolus, to really rare stuff that you canít believe An (proprietor) was able to snag a keg of-. The bar is usually deep with beer geeks, and the place smells of vietnamese food (b/c itís a vietnamese restaurant). The two go well together. An is a master barkeep and will be able to recommend your next beer in a heartbeat if you can tell him what you like and donít like. The backup bar guys are pretty good too. Itís a MUST SEE if you come to Richmond.

Mekong is an incredible establishment. Great food, service, staff and of course beer. Their Draft list is second to none. Wonderful selection of rare bottled beer. A definite stop on any beer enthusiastís list. Stop by and see An Mekong for an incredible experience.

This is absolutely my favorite place in the world! Fantastic selection, with more than knowledgeable service. Great atmosphere and very supportive of the beer community. A must go!

In town to visit and heard this place was a must go. First off, for a Vietnamese place the beer selection is off the charts as many others have mentioned. Hell for any place it was quite nice. The waiter was probably the best and most fun I have had anywhere. The food was quite nice and the prices and portions made for a very reasonable evening. This is a must go if in Richmond. Just a completely different beer experience than your normal pub/bar setting.

Shocked that I hadnít rated this. First, the food is outstanding Vietnamese food done at at a very good value. You can get anything from a standard, well executed Pho to more sophisticated and unusual offerings. Now for the beer. Oh, the beer. In the early days, it was "just" an awesome list of bottled Belgians. But now they have gone nuts - they still have the incredible bottle selection of Belgians, but they are also now running a bunch of tap lines as well, featuring everything from Belgians to American micros. It used to be Capital Alehouse got all the "rare" kegs in town. Not anymore, they are going to Mekong and Commercial Taphouse instead. The owner knows his stuff and is fanatical about the beer. His staff might not share the knowledge, but they are always willing to track him down if a person has a question. Absolutely a must stop in Richmond these days.
