Read good reviews of this place; was not disappointed

Went to Viet Taste today for lunch and had egg rolls, Thai iced coffee and a curry dish with rice/shrimp. I thought the service was excellent and the food was wonderful. Fortunately, I was able to get a table far away from the door, as the weather was terrible outside. Since this restaurant is... read more

We come here fairly frequently and enjoy the good service and food at a fair price. I almost always have the bun and it is always fresh and tasty.

This strip mall restaurant was packed on a weekday evening. The spring roll and papaya salad with shrimp were good--not great--appetizers. But the main course, the grilled pork noodle bowl, was outstanding. I'd definitely return but it would be difficult to opt for something other than the grilled pork!

Had a delicious beef Pho, spring rolls and papaya salad. Although, ask for extra spice if you like, as the papaya salad is quite mild.

The ambience was fine clean. Food was just average same with other Vietnamese places we go nothing special. The service was a little slow though. The price was affordable.

I have eaten at numerous Vietnamese restaurants in ABQ, but keep returning to Viet Taste for the best in town. The restaurant is in a nondescript strip mall, but inside it is a warm and inviting atmosphere. Prices are reasonable on all items in a huge menu. Our favorites is the chicken or pork noodle bowl with eggrolls. It is... More

Hadn't eaten here in several years, just because there was no opportunity. Stopped by in early June for lunch. Even though every table was taken, there was only about a 10-15 minute wait. Food was fresh and cooked just right--not over- or under-cooked. All staff were friendly and helpful. Delightful!

Viet-Taste really surprised us! We stopped in one night when another restaurant we frequent was over-packed. We ordered three things, papaya salad with shrimp (GREAT FLAVOR), rare steak pho (wasn't my favorite due to broth base), and a delicious shrimp entree. We have gotten take out here a few times already since then, and everything has been delicious. Haven't found... More
