I live in a big city that has so many Asian restaurants. I come to Rio Rancho for business trip and stop by Viet Rice with others co-workers for dinner....The food here is excellence and price is reasonable compare to New York or San Francisco...Service is very fast and polite. I definitely will come back again when I have opportunity... More

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. We had a very nice young man serving us yesterday & we were made to feel welcomed & not rushed. Great for a family & I agree, clean bathrooms!... More

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

We enjoyed our dinner. Waitress was tentative. Drinks were refilled quickly. Clean bathrooms, family type environment.

I dream about the fresh spring rolls with peanut sauce they make here. Peanut sauce is the best in town. Small place, unassuming in a small strip mall, small menu and terrific food. Calamari is perfectly made

I've eaten in here several times. I see other local business owners dining here also. The servers are always friendly and very quick about taking your order and keeping your glass full. The Pho is great and so are the clay pots. The spring rolls are good too

My family and I were in New Mexico for vacation. We stopped by Viet Rice for dinner. The food here pretty good. We've been here a few times during vacation and business trips and the place is never too crowded so service is pretty fast. The Pho is never a bad choice. The soup has good taste. The summer rolls... More
