AmaDara Restaurant

A Taste of the Mekong

My once-in-a-lifetime cruise to the Mekong with AmaWaterways was filled with some of the best memories I’ve ever made on a cruise and although the cruise is filled with excursions and trips to some fascinating places, the food on board AmaDara was equally as memorable as the other on-shore experiences.
