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.

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.

There is an old saying, "Never eat at a Truck Stop that has no Trucks in the parking lot." If you go into a restaurant a little after 1:00PM and 90% of the tables have been occupied - that's a pretty good indication the place is busier than a "one tooth beaver!" Restaurants that do not have good food are... More

After years of seeing this place I asked one of my co-workers if she would like to have lunch with me at Viet Rice in Rio Rancho, NM. We arrived at 1:10 or so and the place was a total mess!!!!!!!!!! We had to look around for a place to sit as 90% of the tables had not been cleaned/bussed.... More

This food is good & you would think with all those veggies that it would bother my stomach, but it doesn't! No upsets so able to totally enjoy this great food.

I agree with other reviewers that pho stock is particularly good. Also ordered ,more expensive rice vermicelli dish and quality of meat and other ingredients very good, but portion on smaller end. So, nice change from lower quality with enough for 2 meals, but be aware if you are going in extra hungry that may want extra carbs somehow. Viet... More
