Tasty & inexpensive

I've mostly stayed on the rice-noodle side of this menu, but everything was super good. This past time i had a #39 which was sort of the rice noodle sampler, and it was great, though the noodles were flat & melted together strangely. Still devoured it like it was my last meal. Really yummy.

They never entered our order, so after 20 minutes, we finally flagged down a different server (ours had disappeared). The server who took the order finally re-arrived, and did not recall or have notes about our order. he took it again, then 12 minutes later (after another stream of dishes left the kitchen) or order arrived with the two dishes...

We've tried some appetizers and chicken pho in beef broth... if you like Asian/Vietnamese food you won't be disappointed!

This one of my favorite restaurants in town. My other half and I have been coming to eat pho for over two years now, we have tried many places for pho and definitely Viet Taste has the best! Also anything in the menu is delicious.

This is in my top 5 best restaurants I ever eaten at, which includes restaurants like Mastros' Steak House and Maggianos. The food is unbelievable never had anything I have not liked yet. My only criticism is other then the couple female waitresses that work there the male waiters aren't very friendly or un-personable.

A group of co-workers traveling to ABQ dined at Viet Taste based on positive reviews on Trip Advisor. The restaurant was located in a strip mall. Viet Taste was clean and neat not fancy or pretentious. We had a variety of apps and entrees. Everything was delicious and authentic. The staff was efficient, accurately managing orders from 7 guest.

This is a gem! A small, clean and pleasant Vietnamese restaurant with great food and great prices. For lunch, go early (between 11-11:45 am) because at noon there might be a line for a table. Everything in the menu looks good. The restaurant is clean and pleasant, the service is fast, the food is very good & generous, and the... More

The food comes fast! The service is very efficient. The prices are very reasonable. I have had the pho on three occasions and it's been good every time. Skip the spring rolls.

This is a great little restaurant that if your in the area, you must try. I've only eaten here once but there was never an empty table and there was always people waiting. I was told this is typical due to the great food you get here. I might add, that any wait is well worth it. I had the... More

Great food found by accident just off I-40. We eat a lot of Asian food and have had it in Hong Kong, southwest China, Singapore, Tibet and many well known Chinatowns in North America. Our meal here held its own. The ambiance is low key Asian with touches of bamboo and Oriental paintings. There is no bar but we weren't... More
