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!

I ordered two 75 and the chicken was burnt I called to let them know and they told me to return the food. I was on a lunch break so I couldn't return it right away then they said to bring it in even if it's a week later! Wow!! And the lady and the manager were very rude... Lost... More

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

Great food at reasonable prices. Appetizers are fantastic, try the grape leaves. Great selection of entrees with outstanding Pho. The lemongrass chicken is the best in the city. It's a small dining room, so come early. Also a great lunch place when you want something special.

After many years coming to ABQ this was our first time going to this top notch place with very reasonable prices. We split good spring rolls then each had a very large bowl of rice noodle soup with seafood for only $7.50. Lovely place, good service and plenty of easy free parking.

We dined here on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Albuquerque, and were very disappointed. The setting is pleasant, with tablecloths on the tables. But the atmosphere is not conducive to pleasant dining - noisy and crowded, athough I am not sure why, and the service is just so-so. My fried rice with shrimp was completely tasteless, and... More

I had not had Vietnamese since before I moved out here, and was craving it. I decided to give this place a try and really liked it. I have been several times recently, and have tried different dishes. Everything I have had so far has been excellent. My only complaint, the place is a bit overly crowded, the tables are... More

I really like Viet Taste. I went to Saigon last year and learned how to make some of their dishes. The dishes tasted the same in Saigon as they did here. The food is fresh and served quickly. The service is good, but a little dismissive. I'll overlook that because the food is fresh and tasty, the value is amazing,... More
