Family run Viet Place

Great family run place that specializes in Asian food. Shrimp curry and Pad Thai awfully good! Dark inside. Lots of magazines. Serves solo diners well. Has good beer selection.

When Viet Rice first opened, years ago, it was fantastic! Everything they made was fresh and delicious and was made up of the finest ingredients. We returned this week after a long absence and we couldn't believe it was the same place. New owners; only one other person in the whole place...we found out why soon enough. The beef pho... More

Hole in the wall family run place with excellent rice dishes. They serve Kirin Beer! Good choice of regular and veggie dishes. Great service. Prices a tad high. Curry dishes and Pad Thai also good. Dark place with annoying Oriental Music.

I hate chain restaurants (which is basically what you will find in Rio Rancho), and always prefer INDEPENDENT, well-managed mom&pop restaurants. This sweet little Vietnamese restaurant is a REAL GEM in otherwise abysmal Rio Rancho, NM. They always greet everyone who walks through their doors with a cheerful acknowledgement and allow you to sit wherever you feel comfortable. They quickly... More

In a sentence: nice Buddhist family serving honest tasty food. We had the chicken soup and the beef soup. Both come with several options. I had the chicken soup with Udon noodles and tofu, on which they liberally sprinkled steamed vegetables. Yum! The broths were tasty and well-made. Have gone back several times and always enjoyed the food. Highly recommended.

Can't say anything negative about it, a little ordinary, but OK for some goi cuon and noodles. Vietnamese restaurants put on their best face with their pho - and it was OK.
