Best Thai food ever! - Edit

This is hands down my favorite Thai restaurant that I have ever eaten at. Everything is so amazing. They can make everything vegetarian. You can ask them to not put fish sauce in everything and get tofu. They will even bring you special dipping sauce that is fish sauce free if you ask. They will also make you veg spring rolls. I love their pad see eiw and curries yum yum yum. Seriously if you are in Springfield and you like Thai food EAT MEKONG! Lovely staff as well! I rate this 5 stars for sure!

Pros: incredible food, friendly staff

Cons: hard to find

vegan food - Edit

Indeed staff is aware of what vegan and vegetarian mean. All but a few dishes can be vegan. Tofu is prominently listed on the menu. Staff said they will investigate seitan at our suggestion.

It is a bit hidden (tucked behind another building) and not fancy, but food was really good and we were gratified to find vegan awareness on our trip to Springfield.

Pros: vegan knowledge, good food, friendly folks

Cons: location

My favorite Thai in Springfield - Edit

Quaint little restaurant that is easy to miss. Any dish can have tofu subbed for meat and you can request to leave out the fish sauce. Staff is always friendly. Quality of food is always fresh and full of flavor. My favorites are Vietnamese Spring Rolls wrapped in rice paper with tofu swapped for meat and the Loation Curry "Beef" Noodles with tofu swapped for meat. I have tried a number of dishes and never been disappointed.
