Great Viet Restaurant in ABQ

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... read 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

We eat here so regularly that we have a known table. When one of us shows up, the staff points to 'our' table which isn't really reserved but seems to be generally open. We tend to be lunch early birds. The reason we eat here is that what we get is great and decently priced. A bit ago, the prices... More

Lovely Vietnamese restaurant with efficient service. Excellent, tasty food at low prices. Large bowl of pho ga (chicken noodle soup) and great stir fried rice noodles with a combination of seafood and chicken. Both only $8 each. Unbeatable!!

Best place to eat in town, and has great pricing. The vegetarian food is great tasting as well, so try it if you are a meat eater, you won't notice the difference! Expect a wait around 6/7pm because people like to eat here a lot, there are a lot of regulars. The service is good, sometimes you do wait for... More

It was my birthday and husband took me here for an early dinner. The food was great, no MSG, vegetarian, mostly soups, but very fresh and tasty. The service was great, friendly and often.

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 located in a strip mall I... 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.
