Two of Goa’s leading hospitality groups MandoviQue’s Hospitality and NRB Group come together to create a unique experience with its newest addition, the Mekong Lounge and Diner. The state’s very first oriental lounge, Mekong Lounge and Diner which launched recently in Panjim offers its patrons the perfect atmosphere to satiate their oriental temperament and drown out the worries of the world as one indulges in the true ‘Mekong Experience’. The group’s other hospitality venture Pan Asian Bowl has also been re-launched with a new refurbished look.
In Chinese Philosophy, the interaction of the five elements forms the basis of civilization. As fire, water, earth, metal and wood combine; they give rise to the tumultuous cycle of life. Mekong Lounge gives you a taste of the orient, of regions serenaded by the cascading waters of the Mekong River, the lifeline of Southeast Asia. As the five elements interact in the space around you to create the perfect ambiance, the lounge serves you delectable cuisine found along the banks of the Mekong river, and exotic liquid concoctions that transport you to the streets of Southeast Asia.
Located on the beautiful tree-lined street in Campal, Panjim, right above Pan Asian Bowl, just a short walk away from the beach, Mekong Lounge and Diner promises to bring alive the oriental experience for every guest who walks through the doors – artistically done up interiors, a smoking lounge area, private dining enclosures, a well stocked bar and brands at affordable prices. The brain child of young entrepreneur Akshay Quenim, he has gone to elaborate lengths to recreate the magic of the Orient at Mekong Lounge and Diner.
Said Akshay Quenim, who is spearheading the new business venture, “Mekong Lounge and Diner is a labour of love. The lounge is a chic, sophisticated lounge and diner offering distinct flavours of the orient. After the resounding success of Pan Asian Bowl, it was only natural to bring to the people of Goa another delightfully refreshing dining experience.”
The cuisine and beverage offerings at Mekong Lounge and Diner includes a range of exotic Southeast Asian cuisine including Malaysian, Thai and Chinese dishes which use soulful ingredients like fresh seasonal vegetables, fragrant spices and aromatic herbs. The well stocked bar offers a range of beverages catering to varied tastes. Strong Asian overtones, tasteful interiors, vibrant shades of colour and excellent cuisine coupled with warm hospitality makes Mekong Lounge and Diner a warm and engaging lounge which offers a unique experience of oriental mystique presented in a very contemporary style.
